Update from the work of DFR Systems

DFR Systems is a private company who’s main activity is the production and commercialization of water treatment and purification equipment. Under the guidance of the head of Research and Development, Dr. Corina Moga, DFR Systems has been busy working on the ABAWARE project. DFR is involved in Work Packages 2 (co-ordinator), 3, and 4.  Specifically, DFR has been working on the partial realization of a laboratory installation for wastewater treatment in RAS systems, laboratory testing and analysis of the treatment process, and field testing and analysis.

So far DFR Systems have completed the following:

  • Partial realization of an experimental wastewater treatment plant.
  • Design of a dissolved air flotation unit (DAF) for the wastewater treatment plant.
  • Design drawings of the tower-like configuration of the RAS- macro-organism based
    treatment system.
  • Design of a new type of mobile support for biofilm fixation in treatment plants. A picture of this new technology is shown below and patent has been requested.


From this work, a number of papers have been published or are awaiting to be published. They include:

  • Ioana Corina Moga, Nicolae Crăciun, Ioan Ardelean, Gabriel
    Petrescu, and Radu Popa, The potential of biofilms from Moving Bed
