The MSABP™ (Multi-Stage Activated Biological Process) is an innovative and advanced proprietary process for treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater based on spatial microorganism succession and trophic hydrobionts chains.

A spatially segregated trophic microorganism chain provides for conditions in which microbes are consumed by primary microorganisms while the later are consumed by higher organized vulture filtrators of different trophic levels.

This MSABP™ trophic-chain design leads to a total consumption of excess sludge, with no need for sludge handling. The MSABP™ has been successfully implemented in numerous municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants worldwide. Trophic Chain, Waste Activated Sludge, Fixed Media, Multi-Stage
