A Biofiltration System - Winery Effluent
Biofiltration System: Simplified Clean Water To treat wastewater in a contact reactor, a biofilm consisting of a mixed population of microorganisms has been developed to serve as a biological scrubber. After formation in the reactor, the biofilm breaks down and removes organic contaminants. When one biofilm becomes too thick to remain attached within the system, it will slough off. Simultaneously another biofilm will form, thus the operation of the system is uninterrupted.
