MEXICO CITY, Mexico – UK biological filter manufacturer Warden Biomedia has secured a contract with Mexican based wastewater treatment company, Intema S.A de C.V to supply its Biopipe 600 Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) technology.
Based in Puebla City, Intema S.A de C.V will use 300m³ of Warden’s Biopipe in the refurbishment of an MBBR plant in Toluca for its client, Coca-Cola.
The Biopipe 600 is designed to provide a large protected surface area for the biofilm and optimal conditions for the bacteria culture when the media are suspended in water.
According to the company, the design creates a high percentage of protected surface area for microorganisms to adhere. In turn, this increases the overall biomass concentration and can reduce the tank volume required for wastewater treatment.
Large openings allow for the wastewater to freely pass through the media which helps maintain a healthy and thin biofilm.
Mark Barrett, managing director of Warden Biomedia, said: “We met Intema S.A de C.V at the Aquatech Exhibition in Amsterdam in November last year and they were impressed by the design and high quality of the product and the fact that it is made of recycled polypropylene. It’s an honour to work with one of the most established wastewater treatment plant solution providers in South America.”
