Feasibility Analysis of Decentralized Wastewater Treatment Technology: SBR and MBBR
This is a case study based research which aims to critically evaluate two most extensively used decentralized
wastewater treatment technology in India on technical, social, environmental and economic factors that influence the
feasibility of such systems. In view of this two decentralized wastewater treatment plants located in the city of Ahmedabad,
Gujarat are analyzed based on a list of qualitative and quantitative parameters. The technologies studied in this research are
sequential batch reactor (SBR) and moving bed bioreactor (MBBR). The results show that utilization of resources per cubic
meter of wastewater treated decreases with the increase in capacity of the WWTP.
Keywords - Decentralized wastewater treatment plant, sequential batch reactor, moving bed bioreactor, feasibility.
