Sao Paolo upgrades a water treatment plant for industrial reuse of water
The Aquapolo project was initiated to address new government regulations to restrict industrial use of potable water in São Paulo.
Aquapolo will supply the Capuava Petrochemical Complex of Mauá, located in São Paulo’s ABC region, thereby conserving enough drinking water to continuously supply a population of 300,000 people.
The Challenge: To build a treatment plant capable of meeting São Paulo’s pressing demand for industrial waste water reuse.
Koch Membrane Systems, Inc. (KMS), a leading supplier of wastewater treatment systems, provided PURON® membrane bioreactor (MBR) modules as well as MegaMagnum® reverse osmosis (RO) membranes, system design and controls, and after-market support and service for the Aquapolo project.
Upgrading with new technology
KMS conducted a comprehensive feasibility study to identify the most cost-effective strategy to upgrade the existing plant infrastructure and concluded that membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology with a Tertiary Membrane Bioreactor (TMBR) system was the best solution for the new facility.
