Forced Bed Aeration™ (FBA™) is a technology designed to enhance the performance of wetlands for the treatment of high-strength wastewaters.
Derived from the United States, the FBA™ system forces air through a series of pipes in a wetland system. This increases the available oxygen, thereby increasing the treatment capacity.
FBA™ reed beds can reach a performance that has not been obtainable in passive treatment reed beds.
Forced aeration can be applied to both horizontal and vertical flow reed beds.
Can be retrofitted to existing wetland systems.
