This innovative wastewater treatment for vessels treats all wastewater produced on board using advanced biological MBBR (moving bed bioreactor) technology. The InnoPack++M purifies both the toilet (black) and sanitary (grey) water, as well as the galley and laundry water to produce a high-quality effluent that can be safely discharged in accordance with European standards. The compact design means that the system can be easily installed in technical areas with limited space. Via PureControl++ the installation is monitored and controlled remotely, keeping operational organisation to a minimum.
MBBR: high-quality effluent water
Using advanced MBBR (moving bed bioreactor) technology, the waste substances (COD) present in the water are degraded biologically by bacteria. These organisms are fixed to special carriers with a large active surface, which swirl through the water. This ensures the optimal absorption of oxygen and COD by the bacteria, resulting in highly efficient wastewater treatment. Furthermore, this particular growth on carriers also ensures extra protection of the bacteria, resulting in a very robust wastewater purification system and limited sludge production.
Lower waste-disposal costs and fewer discharge sessions thanks to lower volumes of sludge
The sludge is then separated with the aid of an innovative automated flotation system. A curtain of micro-bubbles floats the sludge upwards and concentrates it, after which it is discharged into the available sludge tank. The lower sludge volumes result in lower disposal costs, fewer waste discharge sessions and smaller sludge tanks.
