Installed in September of 2009, a Dubai Labor Camp's 14 #MicroFAST 9.0 (total maximum treatment is 126,000 gallons per day [477 m3/d]) systems. Due to the camp's fluctuating occupancy, between 4,000 to 6,000 workers throughout the year, a decentralized wastewater system was determined to be the best course of action to treat and allow of reuse the treated water back into the community for better #WaterManagement and #WaterConservation.

The MicroFAST®, a fixed-film, aeration #Wastewater treatment system, uses a combination of attached and suspended growth that nitrifies and denitrifies – all in a single tank. Organisms in the aerated media chamber digest the impurities; turning the #greywater/#blackwater into clear, odorless, treated #water for flushing of the toilets and for other #waterrecycling opportunities – leaving the potable #waterresources untouched.

With water scarcity as a major concern for the MENA region, the need to reuse wastewater became a major focus for a project located in the labors camp region of Dubai. Consisting of a fluctuating occupancy (between 4,000 to 6,000 workers throughout the year), a decentralized wastewater system was determined to be the best course of action to treat and reuse the water for a Labor Camp Community in Dubai, UAE. Engineered by Clearbook, Inc. and installed by Jallad Environmental, they designed a system to treat all incoming water (influent) from the bathrooms, washrooms, and kitchen(s). The Bio-Microbics MicroFAST treatment system was selected, not only for its low-cost operation and maintenance, but also for its high quality treatment for water reuse opportunities. The entire system comprises of fourteen MicroFASP 9.0 to treat -500 m3/d of wastewater a day. Because of the FAST system's flexible design, the units can be turned on or off as water flow (or occupancy) increases or decreases.
The MicroFAST, a fixed-film, aeration system, uses a combination of attached and suspended growth that nitrifies and denitrifies - all in a single tank. Organisms in the aerated media chamber digest the impurities: turning the wastewater into clear, odorless, high-quality effluent allowing discharging of the treated water back though to the bathrooms for flushing of the toilets - leaving the potable water resources untouched.
