Removing harmful complex compounds from Industrial wastewater

Tracer™ is a family of specialized MBBR solutions specific and unique for the treatment of complex compounds in industrial effluents.

These challenging compounds are not common and knowledge of how to treat them is not widely known.

Bench-scale simulations provide valuable information for determining the ability of microorganisms to break down substances and help to accurately create full-scale design.

Tracer™ customers are typically from industrial markets:


Tracer™ solutions are based on well-proven MBBR technology. MBBR solutions have the following advantages:

  • Smaller footprint compared to other biological systems
  • Robust and stable in changing influent conditions
  • Flexible to upstream and downstream processes
  • Easily upgraded for future loads
  • Low to no maintenance required
  • Easy to retrofit into existing infrastructure


Tracer™ solutions were developed using bench-scale simulations.

AnoxKaldnes has a list of removable compounds we have tested and can quickly give feedback as to the feasibility of any treatment. 

Accurate testing can accurately confirm full-scale design along with other challenging conditions such as start-up and industrial processing shifts.


AnoxKaldnes’ technologies are found in more than 1,200 treatment plants around the world. Contact us for references related to your specific needs.
