Abstract: Lower production rate of solids in attached growth moving bed bioreactor (MBBR) systems as compared to conventional activated sludge (AS) systems makes them an attractive choice for municipal wastewater treatment (Ødergaard et al. 1994). However, the production of biologically-produced solids in MBBR systems is currently not well defined and requires additional investigation. Three identical MBBR reactors were operated under the same dissolved oxygen (DO) concentration, influent pH and volume of Anoxkalnes media in two different experimental phases. In the first phase, the hydraulic retention time (HRT) kept constant in three reactors and SALR increased and in the second phase, the SALR was the constant parameter while HRT increased. These two phases were implemented to investigate the effect of variations in HRT and SALR on biologically-produced solids in MBBR reactors. This study demonstrated that HRT and SALR play an important role in settling characteristics of the biologically-produced solids in MBBR systems.
