GE ZeeWeed technology installed at Utah MBR facility

As part of the wastewater treatment process at the Jordan Basin Water Reclamation Facility (JBWRF), GE’s membrane filtration system separates the clean water from the solids in the wastewater. A number of pumping systems are also located in the process building for the treatment and filtration processes as well as high-speed turbo-blowers that provide the air required to operate the membrane filtration system.

Using MBR technology from GE, the JBWRF has significantly reduced its site footprint by eliminating the need for secondary clarifiers. The ZeeWeed membranes will also help the facility to meet future nutrient removal and water reuse standards.

“The Jordan Basin facility will continue to see the benefits of installing GE’s MBR technology at their site for many years to come because the GE technology allows for easy expansion,” said Yuvbir Singh, general manager, engineered systems—water and process technologies for GE Power & Water. “By using GE’s ZeeWeed technology, the facility also will be able to treat wastewater that will be clean enough to be discharged, meeting stringent regulatory standards.”
