Sustainable wastewater treatment for the food industry thanks to Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor

Reliable, expert and in record time: just a few words to describe how the environmental technology experts from DAS Environmental Expert GmbH have expanded capacity for industrial wastewater treatment in the subsidiary Sisseln site of the DSM Nutritional Products chemical group in the Swiss canton of Aargau. This is where DSM operates the world’s largest vitamin E production facility. The site also manufactures pharmaceutical products, substances for the cosmetic industry, food supplements and additives such as vitamins, carotenoids and folic acid.

Two-stage MBBR plant for flexible wastewater treatment

In agreement with the client, the environmental technology experts opted for a two-stage MBBR plant (Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor) in order to quickly adapt the wastewater treatment to the planned increase in production.

Komplettiert wurde die biologische Abwasserreinigung auf kundenspezifischen Wunsch schließlich durch Anlagen zur Entwässerung und Abfüllung des Schlammes, eine Anlage zur Abluftreinigung und einen großen Treppenturm.
