Known by many as the racehorse of wastewater treatment, the anaerobic fluidized bed offers the highest organic removal efficiency in the smallest possible footprint. Four decades ago, the anaerobic process was known to be difficult to maintain and operate consistently under adverse conditions. That challenge is what inspired EMG to invest years in R&D to make the technology viable for the demands of industrial applications.
The PurEffluent Anaerobic Fluidized Bed Digester (AFBD) technology delivers on the promise of a stable, automated, and resilient process that can handle typical adverse operating conditions and recover quickly from upsets. Based on state-of-the-art technology, PurEffluent AFBD systems use immobilized anaerobic bacterial colonies to treat and convert organic content in wastewater streams into methane gas and carbon dioxide.
EMG’s PurEffluent AFBD technology is ideal for waste streams generated by the food and beverage industry, providing a reliable means of waste stream treatment and clear performance advantages while enhancing regulatory compliance and significantly reducing costs.
