PUB, MSL to build first Ceramic Membrane MBR Demonstration plant in Singapore

PUB, Singapore’s national water agency and Meiden Singapore (MSL) have entered into an agreement to establish the first Ceramic Membrane MBR Demonstration Plant in Singapore.

The project aims to treat and recycle industrial water in a more energy-efficient and cost-effective manner. MSL also plans to establish an R&D centre and assembly factory for ceramic membrane units in Singapore, as well as a facility for development, production and after-sales service in Asia.

The demonstration plant will be situated at the Jurong Water Reclamation Plant in Singapore with construction expected to complete by August 2013. The demonstration study which will be for one year will focus on process optimization.The plant will be capable of treating one million gallon ( 4,550 cubic meters) of industrial used water per day.

The project aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of Meiden’s used water processing system by combining the use of the Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) technology and Meiden’s Ceramic Membrane MBR system in achieving energy savings and a consistent high-quality output of recycled water.
