Mobile Organic Biofilm Process
- Mobile: The media applied to the MOB process is mobile and able to circulate freely throughout the process without limitation of sieves or baffles.
- Organic: Kenaf, MOB’s media application, is an all-natural cellulosic plant that contains a core with high absorptivity.
- Biofilm: Due to kenaf’s high surface area, the kenaf core is capable of granulizing or growing thick biofilms.
Reduces treatment footprint or significantly increases throughput capacity
Minimal mixing and aeration reduce energy consumption compared to other fixed film and granular sludge technologies
Simultaneous nutrient removal and settling reduce the need for polymers, coagulants and phosphorus precipitation technologies, reducing overall chemical cost
Simultaneous nutrient removal with up to 30-60% additional biological phosphorus reduction
Improves sludge dewatering, significantly reducing chemical and hauling expenses.
Easy, cost-efficient retrofits.
