Siemens plans to supply a Membrane Bio-Reactor (MBR) system to the sewage treatment plants at Wuxi New Zone, an industrial development area, to expand its waste treatment capacity.
The MBR system is scheduled for a trial run by the end of 2008. By then, 30,000 cubic meters of sewage will be disposed of every day, thus helping Wuxi heighten urban centralized sewage treatment ratio to 90% by 2010.
As an important water source for a population of 30 million, Taihu Lake was once fouled by industrial wastewater. To clean Taihu Lake, Jiangsu Province is now upgrading the sewage treatment plants in pan- aihu cities.
MBR system will better service sewage treatment for 100 hi-tech enterprises in Wuxi New Zone, of which the sewage to be disposed increases 20-25% year on year.
The MBR system combines membrane technology and traditional sewage treatment technology to greatly cut nitrogen and phosphorus in the water. The treated water can be discharged to river or recycled.
Siemens’ MBR system provided reclaimed water for the Olympic Green, the Beijing Olympic Park. There is no information as to the way the dignitaries present opened the facility.
