<emphasis role="bold">EXPANDED AND FLUIDIZED BED BIOFILM REACTORS</emphasis>Expanded and fluidized bed biofilm reactors (EBBRs and FBBRs) are attached-growth systems with a range of applications in aerobic, anoxic, and anaerobic biological treatment.They use small media particles that are suspended in vertically flowing wastewater, so that the media becomes fluidized and the bed expands. Individual particles become suspended once the drag force of the flowing wastewater overcomes gravity and they are separated from each other. The particles are in continual relative motion b…
