Koch Membrane Systems Inc’s Puron® membrane bio-reactor (MBR) modules have been selected for the expansion of the Ji’nan Wastewater Treatment Plant I and Plant II in Shandong province, China.

Each plant will have a treating capacity of 100 000 m3/day.

The wastewater treatment plants will be built and operated by China Everbright Water Ltd, and the project is expected to be commissioned by the end of this year.

Koch’s Puron MBR already has a strong presence in various municipal and industrial wastewater treatment projects in China.

Wang Huailin, president of Jiangsu Kaimi Membrane Technology Co Ltd, who will design, build and supply the membrane system for these plants, said they have had good experience with Koch’s Puron MBR technology in the 55 000 m3/day Beijing Daxing Tiantanghe Waste Water Treatment Project.

“Since the 2016 Beijing plant startup, the Puron membranes have been used in an underground construction model to provide a pollution-free installation. We have been impressed with the low fouling and low operating costs from the Puron product, due to its unique single header and central aeration design features and the process expertise Koch brings to the table,” said Huailin.

“We are excited that Everbright Water Group recognized the benefits of our Puron product in their existing plant and selected us for their flagship new projects,” said Manny Singh, president of Koch Membrane Systems.
