Biofilmreactors for industrial applications

Problems with water occur in all sectors. Therefore, an efficient water treatment technology is required almost everywhere. The biofilmreactor has taken also this hurdle and is used in industrial water treatment systems. By a new combination of the biofilmreactor with other proven methods, the use of chemical additives and toxic biocides is obsolete in cooling water treatment.
