Rotating biological contactors employ aerobic fixed-film treatment to degrade either organic and/or nitrogenous (ammonia-nitrogen) constituents present in aqueous waste streams. Fixed-film systems provide a surface to which the biomass can adhere. Treatment is achieved as the waste passes by the media, enabling fixed-film systems to acclimate biomass capable of degrading organic waste. Fixed-film rotating biological contactor reactors provide a surface to which soil organisms can adhere; many indigenous soil organisms are effective degraders of hazardous wastes. The bulletin provides information on the technology applicability, the technology limitations, a description of the technology, the types of residuals produced, site requirements, the latest performance data, the status of the technology, and sources of further information.
