Abstract: This review paper discusses the MBBR technology for urban river water purification as a robust technology. The aim of this paper is to present the MBBR technology as an alternative and efficacious method for treating different kinds of effluents under different condition. There are still present treatment technologies being studied and the results maybe available in a while. The review also includes many relevant studies carried out at the laboratory and pilot scales. This review covers the important processes on basic treatment process, affecting of carrier type and influent types. However, this review concluded so far are compiled herein and reported to acquire a better outlook and insight on the theme with a view of meeting the new approach.. To this end, the most feasible technology could be the advanced biological process (bioreactor systems) including Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) system.
Keywords: MBBR, HRT, type of influent, kinds of biological carriers
