Food Chain Reactor

A number of corrective measures have had to be implemented to deal with citizen complaints about conventional wastewater treatment plants. Those issues comprised but not limited to bad odor, noise, and unsightly vistas. This enforces traditional plants to be located far away from the local community. Over the past two decades, Organica Food Chain Reactor has developed a highly imaginative approach to wastewater treatment for urban, residential, commercial areas, and even industrial areas.

The Organica Food Chain Reactor here referred to FCR or Food Chain Reactor, is a type of Integrated Fixed Film Activated Sludge (IFAS) using fibrous plant roots as well as engineered root structure (bio-module). This technology encourages the growth of biomass and enhances the treatment process by provide huge amount of surface area biomass and also complete the food chain.

The Organica FCR system is an innovative globally renounced technology that PJLEnviro partnered with for local application in Indonesia. As we both stand with similar value in bringing the utmost innovative, automated, green, and sustainable product for your best application.

This system provides benefits such as reduced reactor size, high total available biomass inventory, high tolerance against biomass washout during storm events, and simultaneous nitrification-denitrification within the biofilm layer. This technology and system ensure that it is the competitive capital cost (CAPEX) wise and non-intensive operational cost (OPEX) wise.

Furthermore, these facilities offer a significantly reduced physical footprint and lower operational and infrastructure costs when compared to conventional wastewater treatment solutions. Attractive greenhouse design is used to house the process, resulting in an aesthetically pleasing treatment system, no odor, and doesn't need a buffer zone. For warmer climates, a shaded structure is used.

Compared to other activated sludge-based solutions, this green solution has many interesting advantages:

  • The smaller reactor volumes, lower suspended solid, and creative architectural design result up to 60% smaller physical footprint therefore saving significant CAPEX due to less land usage and reduce construction cost.
  • The lower suspended solid and loose structure result in highly efficient oxygen transfer rate, thereby lowering aeration requirement and reducing operating cost (OPEX) by up to 30%
  • The diversity of organisms in biofilm creates a natural “food chain“ resulting in up to 20% less excess sludge as well as a highly stable system that is able to adapt to unexpected fluctuations in the loading of the influent wastewater.
  • These plants blend harmoniously into urban and residential population centers, ultimately lowering infrastructure costs and facilitating reuse and recycling of treated wastewater.
