Editor's Note: Innovation was a big theme at WEFTEC 2014. We'll be featuring a few of the new and better technologies found in the exhibit hall at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. Watch each day for the Innovation logo to learn more about new products displayed at the clean-water industry’s flagship exhibition and conference.

Biowater Technology exhibited the CFIC biofilm process, designed to increase plant treatment capacity while reducing footprint and energy costs. The continuous-flow, intermittent-cleaning system promotes biological growth on polyethylene media carriers. These carriers provide a protective surface for bacteria to grow. The CFIC reactor contains highly packed carriers (typically 90 to 99 percent bulk volumetric fill), hindering the movement of carriers that normally occurs in moving-bed biofilm reactors. The company says the system can reduce energy consumption by 20 to 30 percent, deliver high effluent quality, reduce capital costs and improve biological treatment, helping membranes perform more efficiently.
