Specialty Alaska hotel receives advanced wastewater treatment system

Sponsored by

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, July 10, 2014 -- World Water Works, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wastewater treatment solutions, has announced that installation is underway of its advanced moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR), the Ideal MBBR, coupled with its high-rate dissolved air flotation (DAF) system, the Ideal MBBR-DAF™, at a leading specialty hotel in the state of Alaska.

The new Ideal MBBR treatment system is providing treatment of organic material, and the Ideal DAF is providing for removal of the sloughed biomass and total suspended solids (TSS) material. World Water Works is retrofitting the hotel's existing tankage to create the Ideal MBBR treatment system and is adding the Ideal DAF unit for solids clarification. Startup is expected this summer.

Ideal MBBR-DAF system provides cutting-edge treatment for hotel in the heart of Alaska

The MBBR technology, a state-of-the-art fixed-film biological process used for both municipal and industrial wastewater treatment, is rapidly becoming the preferred biological treatment technology because it offers several advantages over the traditional activated sludge process (ASP). Coupling this technology with World Water Works' high-rate DAF technology, the Ideal MBBR-DAF provides a system that is robust, efficient, compact, scalable, and flexible.

The Ideal MBBR-DAF, like ASP, is a low capital cost option and can often be retrofitted to existing plants, as in this case. The technology requires less up front capital and is significantly less costly operationally while providing similar or better quality water than membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology -- another widely-used municipal and industrial wastewater treatment technology. The Ideal MBBR-DAF system does not require sludge recycling, and the resultant solids are multiple times more concentrated than in an ASP or MBR system.
