GE Water to supply China’s largest MBR plant

By Mary Page Bailey |

GE’s Water & Process Technologies (Trevose, Pa.; www.gewater.com) announced that 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 L/day of wastewater.

The Luo Fang facility is owned by Shen Zhen Water Group and started operation in June 1998. It is one of the biggest wastewater facilities in Shenzhen, serving over 650,000 residents. As the influent water quality is highly variable compared to how it was in the past and due to the growing wastewater treatment capacity needed, Shen Zhen Water Group decided to upgrade the Luo Fang plant.

The upgrade will enable the Luo Fang Wastewater Treatment Plant to meet new effluent standards while staying within the existing footprint of the facility. Using GE’s ZeeWeed* 500D membranes, the plant will increase its capacity by 150 million liters per day and will be able to reuse water.

“The new and more stringent effluent requirements in China make our ZeeWeed technology a perfect fit for Shen Zhen Water Group’s expansion of its wastewater treatment plant,” said Kevin Cassidy, global leader, engineered systems—GE’s Water & Process Technologies. “More and more municipalities are turning to GE’s solutions for wastewater treatment and water reuse, as our MBR technology offers increased performance in a smaller footprint and is ideal for difficult-to-treat water.”
