GE’s Water & Process Technologies announced it will supply its advanced wastewater treatment equipment for an upgrade of the Luo Fang Wastewater Treatment Plant in Shenzhen City, Guang Dong province, making it the largest membrane bioreactor (MBR) plant in China. The Luo Fang facility is responsible for treating municipal wastewater for the city of Shenzhen and once the upgrade is complete, will process 400 million liters (105 million gallons) of wastewater per day. The facility began operation in June 1998 and is one of the biggest wastewater facilities in Shenzhen, serving over 650,000 residents. Using GE’s membranes, the plant will increase its capacity by 150 million liters (39 million gallons) per day and will be able to reuse water.
