J
ust as this issue of WWi was going to print, the
unthinkable happened: my water supply was
cut off. Cue panic, hysteria and outrage. And
this was just from my partner. A quick phone
call to the local water company and we were informed
about the situation. There had been a
problem elsewhere in the community
and the supply was switched off. This
situation got me thinking. I know, dan-
gerous.
Inevitably other householders in our
local town probably also suffered from
minor panic attacks when they went
to turn on the tap. In most developed
countries water supply, and the com-
panies/processes involved in getting it
there, are generally taken for granted.
That is, until it stops. Our industry is
one of the most under praised and
undervalued industries operating in this world today.
We are quite literally 'behind the scenes' in one of life's
most important stage pro-
ductions. The audience only
see and really appreciate the
polished actor on the stage,
or the water out of the tap,
as the finished product. The
difference is that if the actor
has a bad day, fluffs their lines
or trips up, then they are im-
mediately blamed, not the nu-
merous people working behind the scenes.
How different this is for the water industry. During my
personal water hiatus my partner immediately criticised
the water company, questioning where the money from
our bill is spent. I responded that our annual water bill
is cheap for the water we use. Clearly, this was not the
time for the 'is water to cheap?' debate! Anyway, a
couple of hours later and my calming measures were
not needed: water supply was back to normal. What
a relief.
Our industry works hard everyday to ensure the hap-
piness and wellbeing for the worldwide population. As
soon as water comes out the tap slightly discoloured,
or odorous, then the !nger of blame is immediately
pointed. Or if, during continuous spells of hot weather, a
hosepipe ban has to be enforced to conserve supplies.
Unfortunately people don't think: 'Ok, we understand
the challenges faced here on water demand, let's con-
serve our water: take showers, not baths and leave the
car dirty for a couple of weeks'. The immediate reaction
is instead: 'WHAAAAT? How will I be able to wash the
car, or water my prize flowers?!'
I recently spoke with the delightful Yoshihiko Misono
from the Japan Water Works Association (JWWA). Dur-
ing his keynote address in Washington Misono highlight-
ed the devastating impact the earthquake and subse-
quent tsunami had on the country's water supply, now
four months ago. Immediately after the earthquake,
there were 1.6 million people without access to drinking
water. Within a mere 10 days, this number has halved.
Now it stands at just over 50,000. A remarkable reha-
bilitation effort.
What astounded me was his account of the com-
munity sites handing out water during the aftermath.
You would expect the 1.6 million people, most with-
out homes, possessions and even family members, to
be disorderly, frantic and desperate for life's necessity:
water. The reality was quite the contrary. Instead, the
Japanese populations were orderly, polite and calm.
Riots and looting were nowhere in sight. This was a
great reflection of Japan's calm and civilised culture.
See page 14 for the full interview write up.
On the subject of Asia, I'm just packing my suitcase
for the Singapore International Water Week. Again this
year we will be !lming numerous high pro!le, video in-
terviews with industry leaders and reporting on the lat-
est developments from the country.
I look forward to catching up with many of you again.
Enjoy the issue. WWi
Lessons from Japan
“The industry is 'behind the scenes' in
one of life's most important stage
productions. The audience only see the
actor on stage or water out of the tap”
Having lost his water supply temporarily, Tom Freyberg reflects on the
role of the sector and how the perception in the public eye changes
when things go wrong. How Japan handled the tsunami aftermath is a
lesson to all of us, he says.

Water firms take
responsibility for
private sewers
in England, Wales
A regulatory change in England and
Wales could see the responsibility for
maintaining private sewers fall to water
and sewerage companies rather than
householders.
While the transfer is scheduled to
come into effect from October 1 2011,
some assets could transfer at later
dates and some may not transfer at
all. The change aims to cut down the
number of householder complaints and
disputes requiring local authority inter-
vention.
In Wales the draft regulations have
been introduced to the Welsh Assem-
bly Government to enable the transfer
of private sewers and lateral drains to
water firms across Wales and England.
Welsh environment minister John
Griffiths said: “Where drainage arrange-
ments are shared between a number of
households it can be difficult to recover
costs from those who use the sewers
but are unaffected by the problems.”
Concerns have been raised over
new costs directed towards water com-
panies.
Clive Mottram, senior associate at
international law firm Eversheds, said:
“The total length of sewers for which the
water companies are responsible will in-
crease by approximately 70% when the
transfer takes place...these costs are
highly uncertain – there are no records
of private sewers, so nobody knows
precisely where they are, what condition
they are in, or how much investment will
be necessary. The water companies do
not know what environmental problems
they are about to inherit.”
Advanced meter
partnership
Itron and Krohne have partnered to
provide advanced water meter technol-
ogy to utilities internationally. Under the
terms of the agreement, signed recently
at Itron’s facility in Mâcon, France, Krohne
will supply water meters that leverage
electromagnetic technology for Itron’s
portfolio.
The partnership will see Krohne’s
electromagnetic flowmeter technology
and battery-powered meters partnering
with Itron’s focus on the water distribu-
tion chain, from network management to
billing.
Itron sold 9.1 million water meter units
in 2010.
FIELD NOTES
Work is nearing completion on a £9.5 million scheme
to reduce the risk of flooding to an area of South Bristol,
England.
Utility Wessex Water has upgraded Ashton Avenue
sewage pumping station to help divert stormwater away
from homes in the area during times of heavy rainfall.
During extreme weather conditions excess stormwa-
ter will now be screened before being released into the
River Avon during all tidal conditions.
The work at Ashton Avenue pumping station, which is
one of the largest of its kind in the south west, involved
installing new storm pumps – twice the size of the exist-
ing pumps – and diverting all stormwater through a new
£5 million screening chamber.
Previously, wastewater from homes and open spaces
in south Bristol flowed along the Malago storm water inter-
ceptor – a sewer which was built following the Bedminster
floods in 1968.
Over the years increased population and hard land-
scaping meant there was more run-off during intense
rainfall and the pumping station at Ashton Avenue which
takes away the waste reaches capacity. This could po-
tentially back up and lead to flooding in the south Bristol
area.
Numerous modifications were made to the site which
takes wastewater from around 90,000 people in South Bristol. Once complete it will mean the pumping station’s capacity will be
increased from handling flows from five cubic metres a second to 10 cubic metres a second. Wessex Water said work at Ashton
Avenue was expected to be completed by late summer.
Europe and Japan combine to
develop osmotic power facilities
European renewable energy company Statkraft and Japanese membrane manufacturer Nitto Denko/Hydranautics have entered
into an agreement for the development and supply of membranes for osmotic power.
Under the agreement, Nitto Denko/Hydranautics will develop membranes specifically designed for the use in large scale osmotic
power plants. It is hoped the development will help bring osmotic power further towards commercialisation and eventually compete
with renewable energy sources. The partnership followed Statkraft opening the world’s first prototype facility for osmotic power in
2009, at Tofte, Norway. The prototype consists of 66 pressure pipes with rolled-up membranes on the inside - it holds a total of
2000 m
2
of membranes.
Statkraft said that osmotic power has a global potential of 1600-1700 TWh annually, or the equivalent of 50% of current power
production in the EU.
Brett Andrews, president and COO of Hydranautics, a subsidiary of Hydranautics, said: “New membrane technology is key to
making osmotic power a cost-effective, renewable energy source.”
B&V appointed for £16 million water works refurb
Dee Valley Water in the UK has contracted Black & Veatch (B&V) under a £16 million upgrade programme to refurbish the utility’s
largest water treatment works. B&V has been appointed as the design and build partner to upgrade and replace and aging water
treatment assets at Llwyn Onn water treatment works.
The rebuilt works will be constructed within the constraints of the existing site and the new structures will be designed and built
off-line while the existing treatment facility remains in operation. B&V said that as well as improving water security, the introduction
of a secondary treatment process will further ensure customers continue to benefit from the highest standards of water quality. The
contract will be executed in two phases. The six-month design period began in April 2011, and will be followed by an 18-month
construction period. All works are planned to be complete by April 2013.
The £16 million upgrade forms the largest single project being delivered under Dee Valley Water’s five-year AMP5 Capital Invest-
ment Programme, which is mainly targeted at the renewal of assets that are approaching the end of their lives.

Haya Water has now installed 1000km of pipes in the Seeb area as part of a water
reuse project in one of Muscat’s most heavily populated areas. The project eventually
aims to connect over 30,000 homes, office and commercial buildings to the modern
water reuse network. When completed, over 80% of Muscat residents will be con-
nected directly to the modern system.
Also part of the project, a water treatment plant is under construction with the ca-
pacity of 80,000 cubic meters of treated effluent per day to supply the network. This
development is now over 60% complete and will use Membrane Bioreactor (MBR)
technology.
Haya Water CEO Omar Al Wahaibi said: “Treated effluent can be used for irrigation
and watering of public amenities like parks and other public areas and by reusing waste
water produced in the Muscat Governorate we will reduce the pressure that is placed
on scarce underground water reserves or the need to use treated desalinated water.”
The overall Muscat water reuse project comprises six major developments includ-
ing Seeb, Bausher, Muscat, Muttrah, Amerat and Quriyat. Each project will include a
modern water treatment plant using MBR technology.
Commercial scale FO facility

/day forward osmosis desalination plant, following trials in
Gibraltar and Oman. Awarded by Oman’s Public Authority for Electricity and Water, the
facility will be built at Al Naghdah in the Al Wusta region, and will supply high quality
fresh water to the local community.
Patented ‘manipulated osmosis’ technology will be used, which the group said has
been shown to use less energy and be “more reliable than conventional methods”,
particularly when operating in challenging conditions.
Neil McDougall, executive chairman of Modern Water, said: “Forward osmosis has
emerged as a hugely important technological step-change within the desalination industry.”

largest MBR facility in South Africa
Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies South Africa, a subsidiary of Veolia Water Solutions
& Technologies, has been awarded a R187-million (around 19.2 Million Euros) contract by the
City of Cape Town’s Department of Water & Sanitation, to upgrade and extend the treatment
capacity at Bellville’s wastewater treatment works (WWTW).
With this upgrade, the Bellville plant will feature the largest membrane bioreactor (MBR) in
the country to date; and its capacity will increase by 20 Ml/day (20,000 m
3
/day), to 70 Ml/day
(70,000 m
3
/day) (average dry weather flow – ADWF). The 20 Ml/day MBR will be separate
from the existing activated sludge plant. Hence, during the construction period, the existing
plant will not be impacted upon.
In addition, the design and build contract, including all mechanical and electrical works,
will see Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies South Africa supply a new inlet works for the
MBR plant, new biological reactors and six membrane trains. A new sludge dewatering facil-
ity will also be supplied, as well as an upgrade of the existing electrical and control systems
infrastructure at the Bellville WWTW.
Raw wastewater to the new plant will pass through coarse screens for degritting, before
passing through fine screens and undergoing anaerobic, anoxic and aerobic treatment before
undergoing ultra filtration and dewatering of sludge.
Currently in the basic engineering design phase, the plant is due for commissioning in
2013. Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies South Africa will provide training and mainte-
nance support for the first year of operation.
Abrie Wessels, regional general manager, Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies South
Africa, Paarl, said: “The water produced has to meet strict quality requirements with regards
to organic matter, viruses and bacteria removal, ammonia and sus-
pended solids content. The submerged ultra-filtration membrane
technology will increase capacity while producing excellent quality
treated water, which will be reused as process water to industrial and
commercial clients in the area.”
UAE approves seawater reverse osmosis facility
The UAE’s Federal Electricity and Water Authority (FEWA) has
awarded a $82 million contract to Aquatech to provide a 15 MIGD
(15,000 m
3
/day) seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination
facility located at Ghalilah, which will provide drinking water for the
Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah. The project will be executed by Aquat-
ech on a complete EPC basis including civil works, buildings, bal-
ance of plant and electrical and mechanical installation. In addition
to the core reverse osmosis plant, the scope of supply consists of
the seawater intake, dissolved air flotation, ultrafiltration, and post
treatment packages.
Set for operation in late 2013, Aquatech said that it wasn’t the
lowest bidder on a capital cost basis, but that it provided the “most
competitive overall lifecycle cost” compared to the other 10 bid-
ders.
Aquatech has previously secured thermal and membrane
based desalination plants across the Middle East including Oman,
Qatar, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia.
Seawater flue gas contract
awarded in Saudi Arabia
The Rabigh Power Plant 2, owned by the Saudi Electric Com-
pany (SEC), has awarded AE&E Lentjes a contract for seawater
flue gas desulphurisation technology (sewater FGD). Awarded
by Doosan Heavy Industries in Korea, the contract is based on
a cooperation agreement which includes working exclusively with
AE&E Lentjes and offering its proprietary seawater FGD technol-
ogy for new plants in coastal regions.
The scope of supply and services for the seawater FGD plant
at the Rabigh 2 site comprises basic engineering, supply of key
components and support during erection and commissioning.
Doosan Heavy Industries is acting as the turn-key contractor
to build the power plant at Rabigh 2. The seawater FGD plant will
be installed in order to ensure environmental compliance for the
sulphur dioxide emissions.
The contract follows AE&E Lentjes securing seawater FGD
plant contracts over the past few years including the industrial ap-
plication of Qatalum in Qatar, and Gheco in Thailand, a seawater
FGD for a 700 MWe power plant, both of which are currently under
commissioning.

China water plant expands using nano-filtration technology
Chinese water company Tri-Tech Holding has been awarded a 130 million Yuan
($20 million) contract to expand what will become the largest water treatment plant in
the world using ultrafiltration and nanofiltration technology for the City of Ordos.
The initial project will allow the Ordos facility to process 96,000 m
3
/day of water per
day, via traditional flocculation, sedimentation, and conventional filtration, followed by
ultra filtration and nano-filtration treatment process.
The expansion phase is designed to allow processing of 104,000 m
3
/day treated
via the traditional flocculation, sedimentation and conventional filtration process. Then
approximately 50% of the treated water, or 52,000 m
3
, will undergo ultra filtration and
nano-filtration treatment processes. The other 50% of the treated water, or 52,000
cubic meters, will bypass ultra- and nano-filtration.
Upon completion of the initial and the expansion phases, the combined output of
up to 200,000 cubic meters per day will comply with the national drinking water stan-
dards as spelled out in GB5749-2006, of which 148,000 cubic meters per day will be
ultra filtered and nano-filtered water.The project is scheduled for initial test runs no later
than June 30, 2012. After completion, the ownership of the water purification plant will
transfer to Dongsheng District of Ordos City.
Gavin Cheng, co-president of Tri-Tech, said: “Although we have faced a difficult
winter that slowed construction in executing the contract...we have already completed
70% of the construction.”
Phil Fan, Tri-Tech co-president, added: “China continues to face heavily polluted
water sources, which led the Chinese government to issue the drinking water standard
(GB5749-2006). This new standard increased water quality indicators from 35 to 106
and is required to be in force by 2012.
“Most of China’s water treatment still uses coagulation, sedimentation, filtration and
disinfection. This traditional process is unable to process water at the rate demanded
by China’s population, which struggles with water quality issues such as disease-
causing microorganisms, algae and algal toxins, turbidity, disinfection byproducts and
unstable water quality. There is an urgent need for conventional water plants to be up-
graded and to enhance wastewater treatment and reduce pollutant emissions, gradu-
ally reaching new drinking water standards in the country.”
Tri-Tech CEO Warren Zhao, said: “Following the completion of the initial and expan-
sion phases, the Ordos plant will be the world’s largest treatment facility that uses ultra
filtration and nano-filtration membrane technology.
“The Ordos facility will be capable of producing 148,000 cubic meters ultra filtered
and nano-filtered water per day. The largest similar plant is the Mery-Sur-Oise Water
Treatment Plant in Paris, France, which has a daily capacity of approximately 140,000
cubic meters.”
This project followed the initial contract awarded to Tri-Tech in 2010. The initial
build-transfer project was valued at $40 million.
Water Standard and Samsung
combine to deliver “water vessels”
Florida-based Water Standard has teamed up with Samsung Heavy Industries to
design and develop vessels to deliver water treatment solutions to the offshore oil
and gas sector.
The partnership will see Samsung construct vessels with Water Standard provid-
ing water treatment services and propriety process solutions and designs to help
with oil recovery and produced water. One aim is to help maximise oil recovery
through the technologies, which will be led by a team including former International
Desalination Association president Lisa Henthorne.
Amanda Brock, CEO, said: “This partnership combines Water Standard’s unique
strengths and focus on a market that is growing rapidly with Samsung Heavy In-
dustries.”

Brazil reaches ‘Galaxy’
ambitions on wastewater reuse
The Aquapolo wastewater treatment plant in Sau Paulo, Brazil has completed
installation of Amiad Filtration Systems’ Galaxy 6” SpinKlin Disc Filters. Built by Foz
do Brazil and Sabesp, the facility is dedicated to the production of reused water for
industrial processes, using wastewater as raw material.
The filters will be used to protect the plant’s ultrafiltration membranes and the
project was sold through Amiad’s Brazil distributor, Aquasys.
Acting a pre-treatment, water first passes through the filters, which have a flow
rate of 2,400 cubic meters per hour and are designed to retain solids with a diam-
eter larger than 400 microns. Remaining water then passes through a biological
treatment and 63 ultrafiltration membrane modules in order to reach the required
standard.
Jacky Vinocur from Amiad Filtration Systems, said: “The Aquapolo plant will help
reduce the current reliance on potable water for industrial use, and will ultimately
result in preserving more clean water for the citizens of Sao Paulo.”
UV Disinfection systems
deployed across Indiana
The cities of Indianapolis and Fort Wayne in Indiana have selected Calgon Car-
bon Corporation to supply Sentinel® Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection Systems at drinking
water production plants serving their communities. As part of the contracts, India-
napolis will install 12 Sentinel 12” Systems at its Fall Creek plant to increase protec-
tion against Cryptosporidium, Giardia, and other surface water pathogens. When
installed later this year, the Sentinel Systems will treat up to 44 million gallons of
drinking water per day.
Separately, Fort Wayne will install three Chevron 48” UV reactors at its Three Riv-
ers water filtration plant as part of a retrofitting project. The new UV reactors will be
capable of treating up to 72 million gallons of water per day.
Both Sentinel Systems have undergone third-party validation in accordance with
the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s UV Disinfection Guidance Manual.
Both Systems feature UV intensity sensors to ensure accurate delivery of UV dose,
an automatic quartz sleeve cleaning system, and a fully automated control system.
BWWB completes
$133.6 million bond issue
The Water Works Board of the City of Birmingham has completed a $133.6 million
bond issue that will finance capital improvement projects through 2013. The transac-
tion is set to close at a net interest cost of 4.84%, more than 3/4 of a percent lower
than the expected rate of 5.75%. The bonds were priced June 6 and sold by the
underwriting team June 7.
Nearly $70 million has been budgeted for capital projects in 2011. The BWWB
completes a bond issue every two years, usually securing between $125-130 mil-
lion. About $5 million is used for capital improvement projects every month, BWWB
officials said.
One of the most immediate projects in-line to benefit from the bond issue is the
Carson 6B pipeline project, which, when completed, will provide an additional 16
million-gallons of water per day to the Southern portion of the system. As well, a
$329 million project to access an alternate water source is underway.
This project will increase delivery capacity by more than 41 million gallons of water
per day to meet growing demand. More than 30 other projects will benefit from the
funding in the next two years.

O
n March 11 this year, a devastating 8.9 magnitude
earthquake struck the east coast of Japan, bringing
part of one of the world’s largest economies to its
knees. One of the biggest earthquakes to be record-
ed worldwide, the seismic force was even felt as far
away as the United States. Groundwater levels in Texas and Virginia
fluctuated wildly two hours after the earthquake was first reported.
In an earthquake prone region, Japan had become resilient to a
series of smaller events throughout its history. But it was the scale
of the resulting tsunami which many east coast civilians did not ex-
pect. Measuring nearly 10 metres in height, the giant wave struck the
country with full force. Although the number of fatalities in-
creasingly grew, it was the failing Fukushima Daiichi nuclear
plant which grabbed headlines around the world.
With any natural disaster, the supply of fresh water af-
terwards is a necessity. In this case, what made matters
worse were circulating scares over nuclear contamination
to groundwater from pollution levels. Days later, however,
and these fears were soon put to rest. Findings from the Kanamichi
Purification Plant, which supplies water to Tokyo, clarified that water
levels were infact safe.
Less than three months on and Yoshihiko Misono, executive di-
rector from the Japan Water Works Association (JWWA), is in Wash-
ington, DC, delivering the keynote address at the ACE11 event.
Misono highlights the devastating impact of the earthquake but
demonstrated the pro-active and efficient services of the water indus-
try. Immediately after the earthquake, there were 1.6 million homes
without access to drinking water. This number was halved within a
mere 10 days. He says that this number is now down to 59,000.
During the immediate aftermath, a total of 430 vehicles were dis-
patched from utilities every day to provide drinking water. And, at
community sites where water was handed out, Japanese popula-
tions were orderly, polite and calm. There were no riots or looting in
sight. A cultural lesson to be learned, and admired, worldwide. To find
out more about the country’s rehabilitation efforts and water monitor-
ing progress, following the period of radiation scares, WWi caught up
with Mr Misono in Washington.
WWi: First of all, my sympathy goes out to the victims and
survivors of the earthquake. Following the earthquake there
were warnings of radioactive iodine in the water supply. What
is being done to continually monitor these levels and improve
public faith back into drinking water supplies?
Yoshihiko Misono (YM): It’s not just water that is being monitored,
everything throughout the society has had to be monitored because
of the radiation levels. They’re measuring everything daily and they
are releasing the results to the public. One of the problems is that
even though the International Atomic Energy Agency is in charge of
the standards, there are really no standards for knowing what’s harm-
ful to people from the radiation. There are no standards for what is
the damaging radiation level for humans. We have standards for what
can be released but we don’t have a rationalisation of those stan-
dards for the human population.
WWi: At the time reports showed that tap water in down-
town Tokyo was measuring 210 becquerels of radioactive io-
dine per kilogram (the acceptable level for infants under the
age of one is 100 becquerels and adults 300). Has this all been
cleared up now and drinking water is safe to drink across the
whole of Japan?
YM: The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare have the standards
but they don’t have any rationalisation behind those standards. These
haven’t been reassessed but they don’t have the rationalisation be-
hind them. Now they have cleared all of the standards (100 becquer-
Recovering
Japan’s Water Empire
Normally known for high quality, consis-
tent supply, Japan’s water industry came
under fire earlier this year after the devas-
tating tsunami brought a nuclear power
plant to its knees, circulating scares of
nuclear contamination. Tom Freyberg met
Mr Yoshihiko Misono, the chief executive
of the Japan Water Works Association
(JWWA), to discuss the country’s latest
situation.
Misono informed delegates over the tragic devastation caused by the
magnitude 8.9 earthquake in Japan, only four months ago
Japanese communities were orderly, po-
lite and calm at community sites handing
out water. There were no riots or looting in
sight: a lesson to be learned worldwide

els for infants and 300 for adults). This is now at undetectable levels.
WWi: You mentioned in your presentation the use of earth-
quake proof materials, essentially piping made with flexible
jointing. Following the tsunami, can you tell us about the re-
habilitation programme to replace all existing infrastructure
that’s not earthquake proof?
YM: So in the area where there was an earthquake, the dam-
age was fairly light - it wasn’t bad so there wasn’t a huge amount
of work required. The two worst things and two biggest disasters
were the nuclear disaster and the tsunami - for the earthquake itself,
while we had preparations in place, we really didn’t predict it to be so
bad. There was about 30 minutes between the earthquake and the
warning for the tsunami, so most people were able to get away but
some people were still there. In that area there have been very large
tsunamis in the past, but there have also been a lot of small ones.
This time a lot of people, even though they had the tsunami warning,
thought that it would be a small one and they didn’t leave because
of this reason.
WWi: And what about help from the international water
sector, aid agencies, other associations and technology pro-
viders. How much did these organisations help out?
YM: We received moral support and a lot of messages from over-
seas. We received money and financial support but technical support
was not received for water. This is because the Japanese, since it’s
an earthquake prone country, have a lot of tech-
nologies which are manufactured at a high level for
earthquake response. We did however receive a
lot of support for the nuclear disaster, from America
and France, infact all over the world. So we did re-
ceive technical support in those areas, but not so
much on the technical water side.
WWi: The JWWA is here in Washington
for the American Water Works Association
(AWWA) event. What sort of international
partnerships can we expect to see between
Japan and North America, and elsewhere go-
ing forward?
YM: AWWA has 130 years of history and the
JWWA has 120 years of history, so there has been a lot of exchange.
Japan has always wanted to learn from American technology.
WWI: There are a lot of similarities between the two coun-
tries and their water industries, with both enjoying a high wa-
ter supply rate. In America a lot of infrastructure was built
following the Second World War and now it’s time to refurbish
and implement new technologies.
YM: Japan learned from Europe and the United States but now
the Japanese industry itself is at an extremely high level; through their
own unique technologies. The world has a rising need for water and
the world as a whole is suffering from a shortage of water. So as a
collaboration between the AWWA and JWWA, we want to work on
solving the problem of dangers to water supplies worldwide, as a
global issue.
What’s important in that collaboration is getting people together to
exchange information and encourage human interaction. In order to
foster new people, we want to promote exchanges of information on
the staff levels to help bring new people into the industry.
WWi: We are seeing a trend now with Asian companies
progressing and exporting their technologies and services
Westward, such as Hyflux and Doosan in Northern Africa and
Middle East, respectively.
YM: Singapore and Korea have been supplementing their tech-
nology and working to raise levels but if you look at it from a Jap-
anese standpoint, it’s not at that level, it’s not as high. The reason
the Japanese seem to be behind in exporting expertise out of the
country is because the area where they excel is with components,
such as valves and membranes. So with management companies
from France, such as Veolia and Suez, they have the expertise in
management and overseeing but there are not many of those types
of companies in Japan.
If we compare Singapore and Japan, we have 1400 water utilities,
with very diverse backgrounds. In Singapore, they only have one. So
we have a lot of experience and the background in this industry. In
terms of management, we are very behind. The quality of what they
are doing in Singapore and Korea is very good.
WWi: So going forward the ideal partnership will be comb-
ing the management experience of companies such as Veo-
lia and Suez with technical, technology expertise of Japan’s
water sector?
YM: Yes, exactly.
WWi: Do you have any final messages you would like to
send out to the international water sector?
YM: It’s very clear that water is going to become the next oil. So it’s
very important that on an industry level, information is shared to help
developing countries. We want to set up a win-win situation with the
developing countries. The year of 2015 will see a target date for the
Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
If we look at populations across Asia, we still have one million
people without access to safe water. So, under this basis, we will
try to extend our hands based on the municipality basis or the utility
basis, through to water operators as well. This is not for business,
but supplying water as a necessity. So we can help to improve the
water situation for the world in a partnership like the AWWA has with
American companies. The JWWA can achieve this with Japanese
companies. And it is through such partnerships where improvements
can be created. WWi

he average urbanisation
rate in China reached
46.6% in 2009. With
this figure expected to
increase up to 61.9% by
2030, the ever increasing urbanisation
of China’s cities and towns continues
to accelerate water demand for agri-
culture and domestic uses.
Wastewater reclamation has be-
come one of the focuses of the na-
tional environmental protection plan
for the 12th five year period (2011-
2015), set out by the Ministry of Wa-
ter Resource. This includes the target
municipal wastewater reclamation
rate of 10% by 2015 (note the average
was 8.5% in 2010). It also emphasizes the wastewater reclamation
rate for recycling and reuse purposes, as well as increasing municipal
and industrial wastewater treatment rates.
The benefits of wastewater recycling and reuse are clear: generat-
ing a valuable renewable stream of water resource for non-potable
purposes. But this process isn’t exactly new in the country. The
northern part of China was the first to adopt wastewater reclamation
technologies to recycle municipal wastewater. Being the capital of
China, Beijing has highlighted its best practice in wastewater reuse
with 6,500 million cubic metres of recycled water consumed in 2008,
accounting for about 18.4% of the total water supply in the city. Elev-
en cities in China (including Beijing, Tianjin, Tsingtao, Ningbo) issued
more than 20 local policies to regulate the water reclamation market.
Furthermore, the 11th five year plan has targeted the daily reclaimed
water treatment capacity to reach 6.8 million tons/day by 2010.
For the past six years, MBR applicability in China posed tremen-
dous growth with the municipal sector being the dominant end-user
segment. Large scale municipal wastewater reclamation and up-
grading projects started to boost in early 2007 with Beijing Wenyu
River Wastewater treatment plant (100,000 m
3
/day) and Hubei Water
Reclamation Plant (165,000 m
3
/day) being the signature projects in
the region.
Successfully holding three events - Olympic Games in Beijing in
2008 and both the Shanghai Expo and the Guangzhou Asia Games in
2010 - provided another important growth driver for the MBR market.
Also, MBR technology was part of a successful tender for an ancillary
water treatment facility for reclamation and reuse purpose, which went
very well with the theme of ‘Green and Future in Now’. As a result, in-
stalled capacity of the MBR market in 2010 worked out at around 1.1
million m
3
/day, according to estimates from Frost & Sullivan.
GOVERNMENT ACTIONS AND RESOLUTIONS
Before these three pivotal events, the Chinese government realised
the serious water crisis in North and East parts of China, and issued
technical policy as well as reclaimed water standards for different ap-
plications to further regulate the reuse market of reclaimed wastewa-
ter. This was referred to as the ‘Technical policy on municipal water
reclamation (2006)’.
This provided technical policy on research and development,
marketing and promotion of the technologies as well as the engineer-
ing practices. It pointed out the overall goal for municipal wastewa-
ter reclamation for reuse is to fully utilise the municipal wastewater
MBR Technology
Propels China into Water Reuse Era
A surge in water reuse technologies is expected in China, spurred by requirements for
wastewater treatment plants in Beijing to become reclamation facilities by 2015. What role will
Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) Technology play and how has it progressed in the country to
date? Industry analyst Jennie Peng investigates.

resources, reduce the load of water pollution, conserve water and
increase the utilisation rate of water.
It also set out that by 2010, the direct reuse rate of reclaimed
municipal wastewater should be 10-15% of the municipal waste-
water discharge for Northern water scarce cities. The same crite-
ria is 5-10% of the municipal wastewater
discharge for Southern coastal cities. And
these two criteria will rise to 20-25% and
10-15% for Northern and Southern cities
respectively by 2015.
Besides the technical aspects for water
reclamation (referenced on page 22), na-
tional and regional plans helped to further translate the increase of
wastewater reclamation rate into detailed targets.
According to ‘Municipal wastewater treatment and reclamation
facility construction plan for 11th five year plan’, the wastewater rec-
lamation rate aimed to reach 20% for northern water scarce cities by
the end of 2010.
Furthermore, the Beijing Water Authority says that all of the
wastewater treatment plants in Beijing are required to be upgraded
into wastewater reclamation plants by 2015, meeting the reclaimed
water discharge quality for reuse purpose. Some of the plants are
even required to upgrade their discharged water quality to meet the
standard for surface water quality of Grade IV. This trend is likely
to spread out to other parts of China where water stress level is
high and demand for recycled water grows rapidly. One example is
Tianjin city, which planned to increase the wastewater reclamation
rate to 30% by 2010, and build up separate water supply systems
for municipal water supply and reclaimed water supply for all newly
built resident communities. Shenzhen city‘s wastewater reclamation
rate was 11% in 2009. It plans to increase the wastewater reclama-
tion rate to 80% by 2020, in which 20% will be the substitute for
municipal water supply.
PREFERENTIAL STATUS FOR MBR TECHNOLOGY FOR
WASTEWATER RECLAMATION
The ‘Catalogue of Environmental Protection Industry Equipment
(Products) Encouraged by the State’ listed MBR as the first technol-
ogy in the 2010 edition. It is no longer based on the influent water
quality but focuses on the treatment capacity and energy consump-
tion of the treatment system.
The quality of treated effluent also rose to another level with em-
phasis on reuse and recycling applicability. It can be anticipated that
The benefits of wastewater recycling and reuse are
clear: generating a valuable renewable stream of
water resource for non-potable purposes

the future focus of MBR technology would be more on cost-effective ener-
gy efficiency application. This document plays an important role in consoli-
dating the adoption of MBR technology over other wastewater reclamation
technologies in the field.
GOVERNMENT INVESTMENT PLANNING
Industrial experts estimate that the total investment requirement for
wastewater treatment facilities and construction is expected to be around
the equivalent of USD$22.63 billion for 12th five year plan (2011-2015),
in which, the wastewater reclamation for both municipal and industrial
sectors is likely to call for a funding of the equivalent of 3.68 billion USD to
achieve the planned wastewater reclamation and recycling rate.
For the industrial sector, the water recycling rate reached 83.1% (Source:
National Bureau of Statistics) in 2010. On top of that, the Chinese govern-
ment concentrated efforts on industrial water conservation and reduction.
To comply with the government target, the industrial end users will need
to push forward more investment to reduce the unit production water
consumption and increase the recycling rate further to achieve the zero-
discharge target for certain industries (power generation, etc.). For the mu-
nicipal sector, there is a growing consensus that the water transfer project is
not the ultimate solution to solve the water scarcity in Northern China. It is
believed that water reclamation is the sustainable solution to reduce the water
stress for water scarce regions.
Chinese government encourages the development of wastewater rec-
lamation and reuse projects by compensating 50% of the build and con-
struction cost for municipal treatment facilities. This policy helps to fuel up
the development of water reclamation industry and install the confidence of
technology and service providers.

UNDERSTANDING CHINA’S MBR MARKET: KEY PLAYERS
AND PRODUCTION CAPACITY
Among all the active players in China’s MBR market, Beijing Origin
Water Technology Company demonstrates best practice. Rely-
ing on its strong government
background in Beijing, Origin
Water successfully sought the
opportunities of the pilot MBR
projects in Beijing Olympic Vil-
lage, the Grand National The-
ater and major upgrading proj-
ects of municipal wastewater
treatment plants in Beijing. It
also has the highest installation
capacity of MBR systems, as a
result of its dominance in large
municipal projects in parts of
China.
Following Origin water,
other key multinational play-
ers including GE Water Tech-
nologies, Asahi Kasei, Siemens
Water Technologies, Memstar,
Mitsubishi, Toray and Norit.
Some other well established
Chinese local membrane and
engineering companies such
as Litree, Sinap and Motimo
also found themselves in the
key technology and service
supplier tiers in China.
The MBR market in China
is relatively concentrated with
Origin Water currently dominat-
ing the market and numerous
small suppliers and engineer-
ing companies making up for
the remaining market share. It
is expected that the market is
going to be even more con-
centrated with turnkey projects
and Build-Operate-Transfer
(BOT) projects dominating the
business mode in municipal
sector.
As more and more competi-
tors move heavily into this mar-
ket, it is likely to become less
concentrated with decrease
in market share for key domi-
nants like Origin Water. Natural
water reclamation and rehabili-
tation is likely to be the next op-
portunity for MBR technology.
COST ANALYSIS
Costs of imported international MBR systems are still much higher
compared to local suppliers in China. The perception is that the im-
ported products are of a much higher quality, longer life span and
much more effective in terms of treatment. However, some of the
MBR systems supplied by overseas suppliers are faced with chal-
lenges in China due to the difference in water quality, system opera-
tion and upstream and downstream requirements of MBR systems.
The cost of hollow fiber membranes is about 20% lower than the
flatsheet membrane. Therefore, the majority of project developers
prefer hollow fiber membrane over flatsheet membrane for many of
the advantages, in addition to its relative low cost.
Overall trends tend to be cost-reduction. It is believed that along
with the innovation of MBR technology, both the investment and op-
eration cost (energy cost, labour cost and materials) are expected to
decrease by about 15-20% within the next five years.
TECHNOLOGY TREND AND BUSINESS MODELS
MBR system technology is yet to be improved for longer membrane
life span and longer cleaning frequency, to realise on-line cleaning of
membrane elements and enhance energy reduction and tolerance
capability to handle fluctuation in feed water quality. Optimised mod-
ule design is the key to ensure maximum delivery of MBR system
functions. Therefore, experienced design institutes or companies are
expected to set up guidelines for system design that best fit the pre-
treatment and bio-treatment of MBR unit.
Unlike desalination or conventional water and wastewater treat-
ment plants, MBR projects are now being operated on a turnkey
business mode. EPC companies only provide solutions for project
owners but do not have the ownership to operate and trade the
treated water.
It is expected that the practices of BOT/TOT/DBO (Build-Operate-
Transfer, Transfer of Technology and Design-Build-Operate) mode of
business would be the possible trend for MBR large scale munici-
pal/industrial project developers to fully take control of the long-term
ownership of the projects, and integrate them into their overall water
business area.
The Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development is planning
to continuously and gradually increase the water tariff for industrial
end-users as a way to control the overuse of water resource. It is
expected that when the water tariff for industrial users is high enough
than the water price of regenerated water, the conditions for water
trading would be mature enough for industrial customers to buy high
quality reclaimed wastewater from municipal wastewater reclamation
plants for economic sake. Water trading is likely to be the future trend
for a water recycling economy.
MARKET OUTLOOK
The MBR market is considered to be the major technology for
wastewater reclamation for reuse purposes. Chinese government
is working on establishing more comprehensive reclaimed water
supply, usage and tariff system to enhance the implementation of
reclamation. The requirements for higher reclaimed water quality,
pro-longed module lifespan, and reduced energy of MBR system
call for long-term cost-effective modification/optimisation of the cur-
rent technology.
Exponential growth in the last few years and the strong local driv-
ers give it a potential of closing in on the $1billion dollar market value
by 2015. China is on its way to embrace the era of water reuse with
remarkable market to be addressed. WWi

A
s the “Arab spring” gives way to the heat of the Arab
summer, we are able to step back and consider what
impact the unrest that dominated much of the MENA
region in the first half of 2011 has had on the procure-
ment of water and wastewater PPP projects in the re-
gion, and ponder what the future holds for such projects.
Will the procurement, bankability and delivery of such projects be
severely curtailed by the recent unrest and each government’s sub-
sequent reaction? Or will there be more opportunities in the sector as
governments seek ways to stabilise fledgling regimes or pacify the
citizens of affected countries?
Invariably, the answer will depend on the specific circumstances
that apply to each country. We consider the contrasting fortunes and
prospects of three countries below.
EGYPT
Until the beginning of 2011 Egypt’s PPP programme was seen as
one of the key target markets for infrastructure players in the region.
In the wastewater treatment PPP sector, New Cairo had achieved
commercial close on October 6, had just come to
market and Abu Rawash was in the qualification
process.
While the procurement process was not always
as streamlined as it perhaps could have been, an
example being the three qualification rounds for
Abu Rawash, there was every reason to assume that these projects
would be successfully delivered.
For the time being these projects are on hold. However, while it
is unlikely that any meaningful progress will be made until after the
dust has settled from the parliamentary and presidential elections in
the autumn, there is still very much the need and desire to procure
the relevant infrastructure and, as far as we are aware, most bidders
remain committed to the country.
The future prospect of these infrastructure projects is made bright-
er by both the genuine belief that business will be fairer and more
transparent under the new regime together with the support that will
be provided to the new regime by the World Bank, the IMF and nu-
merous others.
OMAN
The unrest that has occurred in Oman does not, in itself, appear to
have derailed the Al Ghubrah IWP project, with an advisory consor-
tium having been recently appointed for the project. There also ap-
pears to be continued bidder interest in the project.
In turbulent and potentially unsettling times for international inves-
tors there is a very strong argument to stick to what has been tried
and tested. On that basis, it is reasonable to assume that this project
will be structured very much along the lines of previous power and
desalination projects in Oman and that it is unlikely to depart signifi-
cantly from market expectations.
However, reports indicate that one of the consequences of the
unrest in Oman is a focus on Omani entities investing in Oman and
major projects employing as many Omanis as is possible, not simply
the minimum number permitted under the Omanisation law. Whether
this is a factor that is delaying the award of Sur IPP is unclear, but it is
certainly likely to be a very important factor in future projects, includ-
ing Al Ghubrah.
KUWAIT
Kuwait has been relatively unaffected by unrest or protests and even
the recent limited protests appear to be concerned with specific par-
liamentary issues. Kuwait is pushing ahead with its ambitious PPP pro-
gramme.
This includes the PPP for the 650,000 m
2
/d Umm Al-Hayman Waste-
water Treatment Plant and associated infrastructure, which is likely to
have a capital expenditure in excess of USD$1 billion.
The transaction advisor has been recently appointed and is the
same consortium that advised the client on both the Muharraq and
Tubli wastewater treatment plant PPPs in Bahrain. Accordingly, there
is no reason to suspect that Umm Al-Hayman will present bidders
with anything unexpected, save where required by Kuwait’s PPP
Law.
In that regard, the Kuwait specific requirements should have been
developed and to the acceptance of the market under the path-find-
ing Az-Zour North IWPP project by the time that this project comes
to market.
Provided that Kuwait avoids the political deadlock that has im-
peded the delivery of many previous infrastructure projects, then the
future of this project looks promising.
CONCLUSION
With a few exceptions, there is nothing to indicate that the “Arab
Spring” has done anything other than delay the procurement of much
needed water and wastewater infrastructure in the MENA region.
Indeed, there is a strong possibility that the need to provide better
conditions for citizens together with the support of the international
community will lead to an increase of such projects. WWi

South America’s
Water Colonization
While hosting 26% of the world’s freshwater resources yet still
an extremely arid region, Latin America is attracting major wa-
ter companies from around the world. Lis Steadman provides an
update on the latest privatisation activity and how the rise of the
region’s megacities will help drive regulatory improvements.
L
atin American is characterised by huge variations in econ-
omies, social situations and attitudes towards private in-
vestment that make it a market of considerable contrast.
There is an unquestionable need for considerable
spending on water and wastewater services provision.
Take Peru, which is estimated to require $3.2 billion across the sec-
tor, including irrigation. Chile, too, while one of the most advanced
countries in terms of water and sanitation, is estimated to still need
$2.5 billion in the medium term for capital expenditure.
Opportunities are therefore considerable, but so have been the
risks - as historic events can prove. Uprisings against the privatisa-
tions in Cochabamba and La Paz in Bolivia in 1999 and 1997 respec-
tively remain a cautionary tale, as does the collapse of the Buenos
Aires water concession in Argentina following the crash of the peso.
However, the situation in the region changes fast, and in some coun-
tries at least a framework that enables private sector involvement has
emerged.
Some Latin American countries have legislation that actively sup-
ports the private sector and decentralisation. Peru, for instance, al-
lows private sector companies to undertake a management role,
and Proactiva, a subsidiary of the Spanish company Fomento de
Construcciones y Contratas (FCC) and Veolia Environnement, has
a contract in the capital Lima to provide metering and meter read-
ing services, as well as commercial activities and customer services
such as billing.

PRIVATISATION PROGRESS
Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies (VWS), the technical subsid-
iary of Veolia Water, has also just finished construction of a potable
water treatment plant for the capital in Huachipa, which will serve 2.5
million inhabitants.
Chile has an advanced privatisation programme with a system ini-
tially intended to echo the UK’s – in the 1990s, Santiago and the 11
other Chilean water utilities were commercialised, with a strong regu-
latory body overseeing the contracts. Long-term concessions for the
whole water cycle are now the commonest form of private involve-
ment, and the country enjoys the region’s best figures for access to
piped water and wastewater systems. Mexico also has a long tradi-
tion of private water contracts, awarding 50 Build-Operation-Transfer
(BOT) contracts for building plants to date, of which a number were
cancelled due to the peso crisis.
Proactiva also has other important recent contract wins in the
Latin American water sector including two BOT contracts in Mexico
City and six pumping stations for the Cutzamala system.
Olivier Orsini, president and CEO of Proactiva and senior execu-
tive vice-president of Veolia Environnement, says the company is
active in eight Latin American countries – Mexico, Colombia, Peru,
Ecuador, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina and Chile.
In addition, the company meets the needs of big industrial clients
– especially in the pulp and paper, mining and oil and gas sectors –
through its subsidiaries VWS and Dalkia. Proactiva has operations in
some of the most important regional capitals including Mexico City,
Mexico; Sao Paolo, Brazil; Bogota, Colombia; and Caracas, Venezu-
ela, Buenos Aires, Argentina and Santiago, Chili.
Veolia has been working in the region for over a decade, says
Orsini, and has a total turnover of €900 million annually of which Pro-
activa’s share is around €500 million and €400 for the other Veolia
businesses. Proactiva provides water services, which include pro-
duction, distribution and sale of drinking water, and treatment and
collection of wastewater, through different types of contract including
the typical French municipal system concession contract, BOTs and
operation and management agreements.

water concession in Ecuador, where 2.3
million people are being served through
Proactiva’s local company Interagua, and an
O&M contract for water services in Bogota,
Colombia. The company also has BOT con-
tracts in Bogota and has interests in a num-
ber of medium sized (200,000 to 400,000
population) cities.
In Mexico, Proactiva is participating, in
partnership with local company ICA, in the
construction element of several BOTs (in-
cluding Queretaro and San Luis Potosi). It
also operates the 30 year water and waste-
water concession for Aguascalientes, serv-
ing 750,000 people.
While the group’s interests spread across
disparate sectors, including waste manage-
ment, Orsini notes that it is “not automatic”
that having a contract in one sector facilitates
a contract in another. “Obviously we intend to take advantage of our
presence in one division to offer services in another division, but it
is not automatically linked. We intend to develop a whole array of
environmental services when we are somewhere but they are not
generally with the same customer,” he says.
The firm has also secured some major industrial clients in Brazil’s
oil and gas industry. “We also strongly believe that in the major cities
such as Buenos Aires, Bogota and Mexico City which have over 10
million population, there is a need for new environmental manage-
ment solutions,” says Orsini. “Gigantic urban growth and mushroom-
ing cities pose considerable challenges for local authorities and pub-
lic service providers.”
MEGACITIES AND THEIR CHALLENGES
There are some common issues across the region, he explains, in-
cluding a lack of infrastructure and a need to improve and invest in
existing infrastructure systems. He speaks of a ‘two speed region’ in
which some countries have the socio-economic and legislative envi-
ronments for private participation and others do not. As well as the
obvious countries such as Chile, Peru and Mexico he cites Colombia
as having a “real culture of delegated management”. The booming
economies of Brazil and Mexico represent an opportunity to pro-
vide environmental services, he adds. “The
growth in both countries provides a wide ar-
ray of opportunities.” However, he cautions
that “there is still a lot to do in order to allow
modern environmental technologies to have
a chance to develop”.
In the developed world, there are legal
frameworks that enable technologies such
as recycling to develop on a sound basis, he
explains. “This is still not the case in South
America, but it will come.”
Given the region’s megacities (such as
Mexico City, population 20 million, and Sao
Paulo, population 19.96 million) he sees a
need to foster a legal framework and regula-
tion to allow public and private operators to
develop more technologies to conserve the
environment. “For instance, Brazil has devel-
oped a legal framework which includes the
2004 PPP law.” He observes: “We try to make water available to
everybody at the right quality and price. There is plenty to do in South
America in terms of efficiency and energy saving to contribute to re-
ducing the greenhouse effect. There is a lot to do in South America
and the big cities want us to do it. That is why we are optimistic about
the region.”
THE CHANGING POLITICAL LANDSCAPE
GDP growth regionally running at 5% to 7% per annum for the past
decade and the increase in urbanisation brings obvious requirements
for water and waste management. “We believe despite some risks, in
terms of inflation, we expect to see opportunities particularly in Brazil,
Mexico, Colombia and Peru. We are also studying the opportunities
in other medium-sized countries.”
He notes that the region “is changing politically and economically
– most countries have achieved low inflation and political stability. We
recognise inflation is still an issue, for instance in Brazil, but we are
optimistic”.
Although Latin America captures 26% of the world’s freshwater
resources and has just 6% of its population, this is not always re-
flected in the city locations, which can be extremely arid. Peru, for
instance, has to rely on desalination in some regions or water from

the Andes mountain range. “It is not enough to have plenty of water,
it has to be available,” Orsini notes.
“It also has to be affordable for low income groups,” he adds.
“This remains a problem that we will continue to study.” He con-
cludes that there is still plenty to do and that major challenges remain
in the region, adding: “We see the middle class growing, and econo-
mies stabilising. Politically the region is more stable than it has been.
It is cause for reasonable optimism.”
CASE STUDY - IMPROVING UTILITY EFFICIENCY IN CHILE
One of Chile’s leading water utilities, Aguas de Antofagasta, recently
awarded a contract to TaKaDu, a pioneer of internet-based water
infrastructure monitoring. The utility provides water to the 700,000
population of the northern city of Antofagasta and the copper mines
that surround it, which are key to the local economy.
The city is located in the Atacama desert, where rainfall is a rarity.
The mining industry in particular relies
on water, which means a challenge
for the utility in providing a sufficient
supply.
Marco Kutulas Peet, the general
manager of Aguas Antofagasta, says
the system has “added the capacity
for analysis and after to take action for
our network.
Like all water utilities around the
world, we have a lot of information – a
lot of meters and data, but we didn’t
have the capacity to undertake a good
analysis of the information and act to
reduce leakage and discontinuities of
service.” The company’s cost to produce water is very high because
the only option it has is desalination. Before the start of the contract,
the utility’s network had a 23% leakage rate, which includes both
physical losses and non-revenue water (NRW).
TaKaDu’s software-as-a-service solution uses statistical and
mathematical algorithms to detect, classify, alert and provide real-
time insight into leaks, bursts, DMA breaches and other network
inefficiencies.
Aguas de Antofagasta’s public relations and communications
manager Salvador Silva explains that the utility is also working with
TaKaDu “to let other companies and people in Latin America know
what it is like to use these tools to make their networks smarter and
more efficient”.
IMPLEMENTATION
Work began in February and it took just three months for all the me-
ters and information devices to be coordinated and transmitting infor-
mation every hour to the TaKaDu system. “It was a very fast process
and very easy,” notes Peet.
“From the beginning we started learning about anomalies that we
had in the network but had not noticed. Our people from the net-
work department had done some analytical work, but using an Excel
spreadsheet – it took a lot of time to get conclusions, it was very
slow.”
The real-time analysis enables the utility to be much more proac-
tive and focus its resources on resolving issues rather than trying to
determine what the issues are. “Customers don’t pay for the analyti-
cal process – they pay for a service, for quality. They don’t want to
pay more if you have more engineers.”
Peet acknowledges that Chile is an advanced Latin American
country. “If you look at potable water coverage, it is nearly 95%, and
wastewater treatment coverage is more than 85%. If you compare
that with the Latin American average effectively it is right to assess
Chile as being in a good position. And as all of our water utilities are
private, we are in a very good position.”
Initially, in terms of the joint venture between the utility and TaKaDu
to expand provision in Latin America, he says that the partnership is
looking to the Peruvian and Brazilian markets.
Silva says: “We foresee that as Peru is growing at a very fast rate,
with a very good economy...Brazil also has a very fast growing econ-
omy and a large population, and is a big market with a lot of major
water utilities. And of course inside Chile we have many opportunities
to implement and deploy the system.”
ENERGY SAVINGS
Reducing the company’s night-time flows has been a primary goal as
this most accurately reflects the baseline state with network losses,
without distortion from demand. “Our people have been able to act
in some areas of the city where we had high night flows, they went
straight to work in those areas and were able to reduce night flows,
for example in one area by 10,000 m
3
to 20,000 m
3
per month. It is
possible to calculate from that an annual and five year saving.”
This type of loss is being targeted because it is the type engineers
can most readily resolve. Others including illegal use, meter problems
and invoicing issues, require different types of action, Peet notes.
“If we can calculate our technical, or physical losses, we can cal-
culate our apparent water losses – problems with meters, invoicing
and illicit connections,” Peet explains. “When we know that, we can
redesign our strategies to tackle these issues.” WWi

M
ining investments in South America are very active.
Nearly US$100 billion is expected to be spent dur-
ing this decade in Chile and Peru alone. Other sub-
stantial investments will notably include Colombia,
Brazil and other South American countries. This
very large amount of projects will be executed in very challenging
geographical settings, often high up in the Andes Mountains. It is the
search for sustainable water sources to support both existing and
new mineral processing needs that will prove even more challenging
for these projects than electricity supply.
Arid regions such as the North of Chile or the South of Peru are
facing an upcoming crisis in available land-based water resources,
and are focusing on the use of seawater. However, even Mexico
and Brazil are facing the same dilemma. The local mining industry is
competing for the same resources as other users, putting at risk any
long-term project development depending on the same stretched
hydrological resources.
Conversely, and even in semi-arid regions, during part of the year
mining operations may experience a surplus of water in their opera-
tions. Wet seasons or snow and ice melt may enter the mining op-
erations: mine pits, tailings ponds, waste dumps and leach pads. As
a result, some of this water may have to be discharged temporarily
to the environment. And, as is the trend globally, South American
environmental discharge legislation is becoming more stringent for
mining companies. Peru and Chile, for example, have implemented
some of the strictest environmental effluent discharge legislations
worldwide, with some critical parameters required to meet standards
even below potable water.
GEOGRAPHIC CHALLENGES
Both on the water supply side as well as the effluent discharge op-
tions, mining companies are facing continuation in demanding situ-
ations. In most cases, the use of seawater requires significant in-
vestments of marine structures, desalination plants, energy supply
systems and moreover very complex water conveyance systems. In
the mountainous regions of South America, nota-
bly Chile and Peru, many of the major mining proj-
ects being developed are located high up in the
Andes mountains, at altitudes of up to 4 km above
sea level and 200 kilometers from the coastline.
These mine water supply projects face several
engineering and design challenges, as well as local
political and economic challenges. These include
local geography, community relations, environ-
mental impacts, and energy requirements, for the
implementation of large seawater treatment and
conveyance systems. As such, there is a limit to
alternative designs that can be considered for this
type of coastal infrastructure projects. In order to
achieve significant savings in investment and op-
erational costs, the design of water supply projects
must also involve the development of an accurate
water balance. This is so that the seawater treat-
ment plants, pipelines, and pumping stations,
are not over (or under) designed. Project logistics
must also reflect progressive change in the water
demand and may need to consider a modular, ex-
pandable design.
Although the majority of the seawater supply
projects are being identified as seawater desalination projects, in re-
ality they are a result of a complex integration of marine works, a de-
salination treatment system combined with a high pressure convey-
ance pipeline and an energy transmission project. In practice, mining
companies consider the project as a whole, and require a complete
supply solution. This may result in a disconnect with the actual mar-
ket because of the limited size of the desalination plant compared to
the overall project.
Furthermore, it is not always logical that desalination OEM provid-
ers would manage the complete project, as they might in more con-
ventional public sector desalination projects around the world.
Unearthing Effi cient
Mining Water Solutions
As environmental regulations become more stringent, South American mining companies
are facing significant water challenges. Desalinated water is proving a vital source but with
mines in Chile and Peru up to 200 kilometres from the coastline, water transport and
networks are a major consideration, say Raymond Philippe and Hubert Fleming.

process
Other important aspects to consider for design and construction
in a mining environment, besides a required heavy duty design, are
the very demanding quality, health and safety demands that the min-
ing industry imposes. These must be reflected both in design as well
as in project execution.
Consequences and costs are sometimes underestimated by
process and equipment providers and construction companies,
especially when their background experience is mostly in municipal
potable and wastewater plants. The entire design, specification and
procurement process is unique for the mining industry.
The high energy demand required for conveying the water, due
to the great distances and elevations involved, and the availability of
an energy supply source represent a significant challenge. Hence,
a strong focus on optimisation is crucial to delivering a successful
seawater treatment and conveyance project in northern Chile, for
example. Previous design experience is fundamental in developing
and delivering successful water supply projects, considering the large
number of issues, various aspects and interactions encountered dur-
ing design that must be taken into account.
DIRECT SEAWATER VS. DESALINATED WATER
Both Peru and Chile already have existing mining operations using
desalinated seawater in their mineral processing plants. Several oth-
er major mining houses are in the definition or even implementation
phases for similar treatment. Examples include Freeport McMoran,
Anglo American, and Goldcorp among others. In order to meet their
source water requirement , several are implementing the use of direct
(salty) seawater as their make-up process water source - a recent
example being AMSA’s Esperanza mine.
The use of direct seawater versus desalinated water is generally a
trade off between capital and operating costs. That operating cost
must include the impact of seawater on operations of the mine as well,
including effect on metallurgy of mine equipment, as well as efficiency
of the mining or beneficiation or ore recovery processing plant. There
is often a substantial difference in benefits associated with comparing
parameters as metallurgical recovery and even effective production
time due to plant availability between seawater and desalinated water.
Direct cost for desalinated seawater supply, depending on altitude
and distance from the coast, and price of energy, will vary between
US$1 to US$4 per cubic meter. This cost is evaluated against the
benefits of water to mine production. In the case of the copper min-
ing industry, desalinated seawater supply cost may represent be-
tween 3% to 20% of total direct operational costs. It’s clear to see
how water becomes one of the most impacting consumables for the
mining industry. In addition, with lower quality metal contents in avail-
able mineral resources, a net higher water consumption per pound
of metal produced is required, further driving up water costs as a
percent of total cost of operations.
WATER USAGE AND RECYCLING
As a consequence, the mining industry located in arid regions of South
America is looking at strategies to improve water usage, especially fo-
cusing on better water recycling rates. Processes are being optimised
to improve water return from tailing ponds, to avoid water losses due
to evaporation and infiltration, and to avoid generation of effluents. As
an example, in a concentrator mill with a conventional tailing storage
facility, total water retention may be up to 50% compared to newer
developments such as thickened tailings or paste technology.
There are risks associated with water usage optimisation that
must be evaluated, which are not always understood or even con-
sidered when aiming at low make-up water supply for mining opera-
tions. These risks can only be quantified through an analysis of both
the quantitative water balance as well as a qualitative water balance.
Mineral processing sites may use various feed water qualities, to
which reagents are being added to the process streams, and may
even suffer from geochemical processes like acid mine drainage gen-
eration. As a result, generally there is imbalance between the water
quantity and quality distributions.
One of the major disadvantages of recirculating and recycling wa-
ter is the possible build-up of contaminants in the water balance.
If less fresh water is used and instead more contaminated water is
being reused, there will be a higher risk of contaminant retention in
the system that may have various negative chemical effects, such
as corrosion, scale formation, modification of metallurgical chemistry
and so forth. As a result the mine site may start suffering economi-
cal consequences due to less plant availability, higher maintenance
requirements or even less metallurgical recovery and production.
Although huge savings may be obtained in water supply require-
ments, this has to be offset against possible bleed stream require-
ments due to a build-up of contaminants in the process water circuit
to avoid these downsides. This may especially be the case in mineral
processing systems that consider the use of poor quality water such
as direct seawater or brackish well water.
NEW TECHNOLOGIES
Although there are less traditional land-based viable water supplies
available, future mining projects in South America seem to have
found a new source that may quench its thirst: the ocean. New tech-
nology developments and best practices applied to water manage-
ment in the mining industry may help ease the economical impact of
supplying (desalinated) seawater to the mine sites. In order to resolve
the negative effects of contaminants build up due to high efficient
water usage, the next steps for improvement of mineral processing
economics will have to include the integration of water quality and
chemistry within the mine site water management plans.
Going forward, effective water management in the industry will
include desalination, as well as more effective wastewater treatment
and reuse. WWi

T
he government of Panama has been planning a project
to clean the Bay of Panama for many years. The main
objective is to clean resid-
ual waters which are dis-
charged into the bay and
surrounding streams and eventually
recover the region’s natural state.
According to information gathered
by the Ministry of Health and National
Institute of Aqueducts (IDAAN in Span-
ish), only 60% of inhabitants are served
by the current sewage system in the
city. Most of these residual waters are
gathered through septic tanks, but due
to maintenance of the system it is not
adequate and the waters are dumped
into the bay with practically no treat-
ment at all.
There also are many industries
which dump illegally residual waters
highly contaminated with grease, met-
als, chemicals and animal wastes. Only
a very small percentage of residual
waters make it to the waste treatment
plants; most of which are undersized
and do not receive the necessary main-
tenance.
Due to this unsustainable situation and to manage the demo-
graphic growth of the city
and economic growth of
the country, the Caribbean
nation in 2006 took the first
steps, under the supervi-
sion of IDAAN, to construct
a new water treatment sys-
tem for the Bay of Panama
and the installation of new
sewage system, called the interceptor (tunnel) system and Residual
Water Treatment Plant, set for completed in 2013.
Until the end of 2011 bids will be accepted on the second stage of
Juan Diaz (Llano Bonito) recollection plant, construction of the recol-
lection plant for Curundu and construction of the second phase for
the sewage network for San Miguelito. The cost of the entire project
will be US$516 million, of which US$64 million will be financed by
the national government, while the balance will be financed through
international loans (as detailed in table 1).
Based on the master consolidation plan created in 2001, the
Treatment Project for the City and Bay of Panama is divided into four
key areas, including sew-
age networks, collection of
wastewater, interceptor sys-
tem (tunnel) and wastewater
treatment plant (PTAR). This
master plan study for water
treatment for the City and
Bay of Panama is part of the
PAN/97/003 “Technical Co-
operation and Support to the
Reform Program to the Ba-
sic Infrastructure” financed
with resources from a loan
Panama’s Big Plan
Panama may be renowned for its Canal expansion news, but plans for improved
wastewater treatment are also grabbing headlines. A US $516 project aims to increase the
current figure of only 60% of inhabitants connected to the sewage system in the city.
Mauro Nogarin provides an update to the developments.

Plans show that once residual waters are collected, they are trans-
ported by a pipe network that runs inside the rivers to locations near
the coast, where they join the Interceptor Network (tunnel) that chan-
nels them to a pipeline system. This will be operated by gravity flow
and pump stations, which directs the entire flow of wastewater to

ter treatment plant, in order for the outflow to meet
Panamanian environmental standards.
The project will come online at different stages. At
the end of 2012 the treatment plant, which is being
built by Odebrecht Brazil, will be operational and af-
terwards the Interceptor Tunnel will enter operations
in 2013.
According to the report by the Ministry of Health
of Panama, in April of 2011, the sewage system was
100% complete, as were the downriver collection fa-
cilities, the Juan Diaz collection plant, and the Tocu-
men collection network. The Matias Hernandez col-
lection facility was 99% completed. The Interceptor
Tunnel is 66% completed, and the collection network
that operates in the tunnel is 47% completed. Fur-
thermore, the water treatment facility plant is nearing
45% completion and the Lajas collection network is
34% completed.
SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT
After the Ministry of Health selected five potential
locations, environmental engineering group Hazen
& Sawyer compared the sites and finally selected
location 2A as having the highest technical score.
Together, the required infrastructure covered an area
of 85 hectares, of which 32 are for the installation of
General schematic of the new treatment plant for the city of Bahia de Panama
DRILLING DEEP: TECHNICAL DIRECTOR INTERVIEW
Geological studies conducted in the area where the sewage treatment plant was to be built, revealed that the ground down to a depth of 12 metres was un-
suitable for building. Engineer Colombo Biserna from Italian engineering group, Trevi, was the technical director for the construction of the tunnel access
and three pumping stations. It was decided that the project would use dry pylons 1.2 meters in diameter placed one meter apart. In total 336 pylons were
placed, drilling a total of 9,448.5 meters. The work took place between March and October of 2010. Here Biserna discusses the work:
Q: Can you describe the type of ground that you found suitable for the project?
A: The first thirteen meters were mud, clay and sand, but after the 17th meter and to the 30th we detected sandstone of suitable consistency.
Q.: What type of machinery did you use?
A.: Considering the three month window we had to work in, we used a Soilmec R930, SR 70, R825 and R822 drilling rig. In each one of them we used 1.2 meter ac-
cessories for the fill buckets or to drill the rock or through concrete.
Q.: What were the greatest technical difficulties you encountered?
A.: Maintaining perfect verticality of the pylons and pouring the concrete with 35 Mpa RCS instead of using 15 Mpa as had been planned in the original project.

the sewage treatment plant. In the conceptual design prepared
by Hazen & Sawyer, the technology for secondary treatment of
residual sludge has the goal of leaving the end product with a
maximum of 10 mg/l of total Nitrogen (TN), according to Pana-
manian environmental standards.
THE PROCESS
The main processes of Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) treat-
ment begins with the sieving process, followed by a de-sanding
forced vortex camera to remove sand, gravel, dust and other
solid materials. In the biological treatment phase, the liquid culti-
vates a population of bacteria and other micro-organism found
in the liquid environment. The organic matter is dissolved and
converted in a form that can be processed by the sediment
separator. The aeration system is made up of sprayers with fine
ceramic heads placed at the bottom of the aeration tanks.
Secondary clarifiers provide a calm area to allow sedimenta-
tion of suspended particles after being processed by the aera-
tion tanks. In the middle of the clarifier tanks a pumping station is
located with the following characteristics: a centralised wet trench for
flow control of sludge, return pump, a pump for actives and a pump
for foam.
The wet trench holds the sludge before sending it on to the aera-
tion tanks, while the return pumps for activated mud (RAS in Span-
ish) transports the solids removed from the secondary clarification
located in the aeration tanks. This is in order to maintain the active
biological mass, which is responsible for the biological degradation
which takes place in the tanks.
FINAL DISINFECTION
Excess activated sludge is continually discarded from the system to
maintain a stable level of suspended solids in liquid mix in the aeration
tanks. To comply with Panamanian environmental regulations for re-
sidual water discharge, the Juan Diaz treatment plant will have facili-
ties for chlorination of the effluent before it is discharged into the Bay
of Panama, provid-
ing a final disinfec-
tion step.
The final dis-
charge takes
place through 1.6
km of mangrove
swamps and 2.5
km of coastal area
through a 100 me-
ter sprayer located
below low tide
level. In the coastal
areas the pipe is
108 inches in diameter and is supported on the surface by its own
weight in the mud, while the mangrove swamp area runs parallel to
the access road to the port of Juan Diaz.
The Hazen & Sawyer company recommended the implementa-
tion of an anaerobic digestion facility through the use of lye as a sta-
bilising agent, after doing several feasibility studies, for the manage-
ment of sludge at the Juan Diaz treatment plant, due to its low cost
at a lower efficiency level.
Odour control is included among the auxiliary processes in the
new treatment system, which is accomplished through pre-treat-
ment. This includes the construction of ducts that remove the air that
builds up inside by maintaining a slightly negative air pressure in the
pre-treatment facility, avoiding the release of foul smelling gases and
permitting them to be adequately filtered before being released into
the atmosphere.
Additionally, activated charcoal absorption units were installed to
ventilate the gases generated by the foam pumping station. WWi

razil has a rapidly expanding economy: the country
achieved economic growth of 7.5% in 2010 to be-
come reportedly the fifth-largest economy in the world.
GDP grew to R$3,675 billion, largely due to significant
increases in investment and a government stimulus
package. Despite a predicted inflation rate of some 6-7% in 2011,
economic growth this year is expected to be around 4-5%.
Based on industry feedback, the report conservatively estimates
that the environment and water sector will require investment of
around R$20 billion per year, for the foreseeable future. The caveats
are that the investment required is larger than the resources available
from the government and that the legal framework is overburdened.
It also says that the structural delivery framework is in need of sig-
nificant investment and much of the indigenous population is yet to be
convinced of the benefits of ‘green’ approaches, although Brazil has
been an exemplar nation in terms of low carbon initiatives. Potable
water and sewage collection and treatment in Brazil are largely the re-
sponsibility of the state (77%), with the balance of the services provid-
ed by municipalities (15%) and private companies (18% and growing).
Some of the state companies have joint ventures with private
companies, in particular for towns or groups of towns that have in-
adequate services.
DRINKING WATER
The amount of water produced in Brazil as a whole (14.3 billion cubic
metres in 2008) tracks the population of each state to a large degree.
Water loss due to leakage in Brazil is huge. In 2008, it was about
43% and currently it is around 40% – although these are conservative
estimates and the real water loss could be higher. The federal govern-
ment plans to cut this figure in half over the next 10 years. The larg-
est reason behind water loss is leakage (typically two-thirds or more),
but additional factors include meter under-registration, unauthorised
consumption, meter reading and water accounting errors. Many small
towns do not install water meters, but rather charge fixed fees or al-
locate fees according to housing concentration.
According to the 2008 data, there is a significant variance in the
percentage of the population that receives piped water between the
different Brazilian states. Two states in particular stand out; less than
40% of the population of Acre and Pará receive piped water. An ad-
ditional seven states are in the 40-60% band of population served.
The supply of piped water to rural areas is another problem, al-
though many of them are sparsely populated with inhabitants having
access to untreated surface water from lakes and rivers as well as
ground water boreholes. Some areas also have access to shared
piped water via stand pipes.
Many Brazilian states provide a good proportion of treated piped
water. There are only five that perform under the 60% treatment
threshold. The aim of the federal government is to ensure that all piped
water is treated as required by health regulations. The poorer perfor-
mance of some Brazilian states is reflected in the investment typi-
cally allocated to water services and infrastructure. Historically, these
states have found it difficult to obtain significant government funding
or attract investment from the private sector. The least investment has
been in Acre, Amapá, Maranhão, Piauí, Rondônia, Roraima and To-
cantins. These are largely states in the in the North and the Northeast.
WASTEWATER
While Brazil’s delivery of treated potable water is very good, the key
challenge is treating sewage. Sewage sludge is and will continue to
be a problem, as growing levels of sewage are collected for primary
or advanced treatment and disposal without treatment becomes in-
creasingly unacceptable.
Current federal legislation in Brazil outlaws combined sewage, re-
quiring sewage and runoff water to have separate infrastructure and
treatment (note that only sewage is required to be treated). Given
the volume of rainfall in many areas, separate systems make sense,
otherwise sewage treatment works would be completely over-run.
Back to
Basics in
Brazil
Experts suggest up to R$270 billion is required to provide services to over half the
Brazilian population currently lacking access to wastewater treatment. WWi summaries
findings from the UK Trade & Investment report on environment and water opportunities in
Brazil, including the potential for Membrane Bioreactor technology in São Paulo.
REPORT RECOMMENDATIONS:
INTERNATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
Key opportunities will be part of the supply chain to the country’s state, munici-
pal and private companies, either as tier 2 or tier 3 suppliers. These include pro-
viding the technological and management solutions for:
- Industrial sludge & sludge treatment (including AD and MBR)
- Water-quality monitoring and testing
- Water treatment

However, combined sewage does in fact occur, either via poor
planning or more typically tapping into the run-off infrastructure, or
the opposite, storm water discharges into the sewers. Since the run-
off water usually discharges into storm drains, river tributaries and
rivers, any sewage entering the system automatically has a similar
and untreated discharge.
A federal secretariat for sanitation, the National Department of En-
vironmental Sanitation (part of the Ministry of the Cities), was created
in 2003 to focus on sanitation challenges. Sanitation Plans (federal,
state and municipal) were expected by the end of 2010 as requested
by the Federal Law 11,445/2007. However, the deadline has been
postponed to 2012. Another issue is the weighty federal taxation
requirements (since 2003) for various taxes (PIS/COFINS/CSLL/IR).
For example, Sabesp paid (in 2009) R$1.26 billion in federal taxes
and at the same time invested R$1.83 billion.
The challenge for the state company, which has been responsible
for approximately 50% of the total Brazilian investment in sanitation,
is that this investment is handicapped by taxes corresponding to
70% of its total.
INDUSTRY STRUCTURE
The sector is fairly concentrated. Each Brazilian state has a water
company, a legacy from the 1980s, making 27 state companies in
total. These account for 77% of the country’s water and sanitation
services. The recognised top six state companies in Brazil (SABESP,
SANEPAR, COPASA, CEDAE, CEASB and EMBASA account for al-
most half of the country’s water and sanitation services).
The provision of services is split between municipalities (around
15%) and private companies (18%). The presence of private com-
panies is expanding, albeit gradually. However, some of the state
companies have formed joint ventures with private firms, particularly
where towns or groups of towns have inadequate services. In many
cases, the larger contractors (such as Odebrecht, Galvão, Camargo
Correa and Querios Galvão) have created subsidiaries to operate
area concessions for the state and municipal companies.
“The skill set in Brazil is good, but
not of sufficient quantity. There is
a knowledge and technology gap
for sewage treatment in Brazil.”
DEVELOPMENTS
In January 2007, a new water and sanitation bill (Law 11.445/07) was
inaugurated in Brazil, outlining relevant federal policy. It was designed
to increase investment in the sector and thus access to water and
sanitation. The law was largely a compromise and failed to address
some key issues and challenges, says the report. At the same time,
the Programme for Accelerated Growth (PAC) was announced, chan-
nelling R$40 billion to the waste sector between 2007 and 2010.
Although meant for broad investment such as sewage treatment,
rainwater drainage, solid waste management and water supply, most
of it was spent on sewage collection and treatment. PAC 2, which is
planned for 2011 to 2014, will invest an additional R$40 billion. None-
theless, industry estimates indicate that, in 2009, 68% of collected
sewage had secondary treatment. Recent research by Atlas Brazil
and the National Water Agency (ANA) estimates that R$90 billion
needs to be invested between now and 2025 to guarantee satisfac-
tory water and sanitation services. This equates to about R$3.6 billion
annual investment in water and sanitation to achieve universal access.
Industry experts, however, believe that a far greater investment in
sanitation (between R$120 billion and R$270 billion) will be required
to provide services to the 53% of the Brazilian population still without
sewage treatment. At the current rate of investment, the country will
take 60 years to achieve the target.
CONCLUSIONS
A key driver for demand will be increasing intervention and policy by the
federal and state governments. The skill set in Brazil is good, but not
of sufficient quantity. There is a perception that there is a knowledge
and technology gap for sewage treatment in Brazil. Sewage sludge
is expected to be a growing problem in the future as more sewage is
collected for primary or advanced treatment.
At present, there is insufficient infrastructure or processes to deal
with the predicted quantity (let alone current quantities). Brazil’s envi-
ronment and water sector presents vast opportunities. It is fundamen-
tal to understand the market before positioning products and services
for market entry. Opportunities are likely to outweigh risks, particularly
as business contracts in Brazil are often based on trust and acceptabil-
ity, thus negating the need for companies to revert to legal instruments
to resolve cases of dissent or disagreement.WWi

CASE STUDY: SÃO PAULO
CETESB monitors developments in São Paulo’s water sector, with a minor role per-
formed by the municipal environmental secretary. There are two large man-made
reservoirs to the south of the city - Guarapiranga and Billings. The catchment area
for the reservoirs is the hill range to their south and west , as well as the Pinherios
River (which now flows from north to south – a flow that was reversed many years
ago). There is also a west-to-east water main that allows water from the west into
the east reservoir when the water level in Billings is low. Testing has shown there
is no backwash of pollution.
Currently, the ABCD (Santo Andre, Mauá, Diademaand and Sao Caetano do Sul)
regions buy water from Sabesp plants and distribute it locally. The state energy
secretariat controls the river flows, including the River Pinheiros. Traditionally, alu-
minium sulphate, or another such coagulants, is put into the water as part of the
treatment as it ionises suspended solids (flocculates) and then enables the solid
suspension to be filtered. However, dispersal of the resultant sludge is a problem.
There are no non-landfill solutions at present. Instead, much is dispersed into the
rivers (and the ocean), as is regularly the case in many other countries.
Activated sludge for treating sewage and industrial wastewater using air and a
biological floc composed of bacteria and protozoans is used in São Paulo and is
becoming increasingly common in Brazil’s other major cities. However, Membrane
Bioreactors (MBR) is a growing opportunity. In terms of reputation and perception of
technical capability, the UK lags behind the US/Canada (GE), Germany (Koch), Sin-
gapore (Hyflux) and Japan (Kubota), since it has no local membrane manufacturer.

ith a twinkle in her eye, Doña Isadora says: “For
us women who still use polleras, we don’t really
need a toilet - our skirts let us go wherever we
want to. But for my daughters, who wear pants,
they couldn’t just lift up their skirt and go wherever
they wanted to,” she says. “Some of my neighbors were given a toilet
years ago by some foreigners, but I didn’t get one,” she continues.
When asked why she didn’t build one after she saw the toilets
that her neighbors received, and she wrinkles her nose in disgust,
“because they were dirty, they smelled bad, and they were difficult to
keep clean”.
Culture, access for everybody, technology and assumptions about
“the poor”. Here, Doña Isadora, from the Bolivian community of Ichu
Kollo, has hit several of the challenges of the global sanitation crisis
right on the nose. Around the world, 2.6 billion people use riverbeds,
train tracks, plastic bags, or the most rudimentary of outhouses to
take care of their needs. Two million people each year, most of them
children who won’t live to see their fifth birthday, die from one of the
most preventable illnesses in the world: diarrhea. They die - just like
two of Isadora’s children died - because, to put it bluntly, there is no
barrier between human excrement and the water they drink or the
food they eat.
In Bolivia, two thirds of the population, roughly six million people,
lack this sanitary barrier between their waste and their fields, fingers,
or food. Organisations of all shapes and sizes have built thousands of
toilets in Bolivia for the last fifty years. Despite these efforts, less than
10% of rural Bolivians have safe, private toilets to take care of their
needs (WHO/UNICEF, 2010). The urban areas appear better in terms
of proportions: one third of urban Bolivians have access to a toilet.
However, in absolute numbers that is still millions of people without
appropriate sanitation services.
Furthermore, despite having access, evaluations in Bolivia show
that all too often toilets are not used as intended in over 50% of the
samples (WSP, 1999; UNICEF, 2006; Water For People—Bolivia,
2009; WHO/UNICEF, 2010), reinforcing the lesson that we cannot
simply donate or build our way out of the sanitation crisis: a new ap-
proach is needed that puts sustainability at the forefront.
POPULATION GROWTH
The conventional assumption is that the primary reason people don’t
have toilets is because they are too poor. Experience from the field
tells a more nuanced tale of habits, priorities and the power of choice.
What sanitation access statistics often may not tell is that some peo-
ple who prefer to poop in the fresh air may also have a satellite dish
- they simply have other priorities than building a toilet.
District 9 (D-9), a peri-urban area of Cochabamba where Water For
People-Bolivia (WFP-B) is working has growth rates of nearly 10% per
year and an estimated 90% practice open defecation. Giving every-
body a toilet today does nothing for the thousands of people who are
going to move there next year, nor does it ensure that those house-
holds who receive a toilet will actually hygienically use it. Furthermore,
if new neighbors do not happen to receive one of those fancy free
toilets that are given out, chances are they going to the toilet in their
yard. So people are still going to be smelling it, kids might be playing
in it at their house, and it most likely will still make its way into the food
and drink consumed by habitants. Understanding what people want,
and finding ways to provide that at affordable levels, is fundamental
to ensuring that sanitation services are accessed and used forever.
A NEW APPROACH
But all is not poverty and pity in these parts. WFP-B decided to try a
new approach to sanitation in this area since last year – involving the
private sector providing sanitation goods and services to the people
who call D-9 home, with some very interesting results. During the first
year of the program, a single toilet was not built. Some might call that
a failure, if you are measuring success in terms of the classic short-
term indicator of numbers of toilets built, but we think of it as moving
towards a truly sustainable sanitation service; where everybody has
access without having to wait for an NGO or the government.
Through a combination of ethnography and econometrics, we be-
gan to understand the complexities of the current situation of toilet
behaviors and preferences. Of the over 4,000 people interviewed (re-
member, this is in the poorest zone of the city), 80% said they would

self-fund the construction of their toi-
let. This might seem surprising, in that
the default assumption is that people
don’t have toilets because they are
too poor. But when one considers
that people build their own homes, lit-
tle by little, without a subsidy, the light
bulb starts to go on. Also fascinating
were the unanticipated factors con-
tributing to the 90% open defecation
rate: aspirations for sewer lines and
to live like “they do in the city” contrib-
uted to nothing other than a five star
bathroom making its way onto peo-
ple’s priority lists. People preferred to
continue open defecating or using
very rudimentary toilets than invest
in anything less than a ceramic-tiled,
flush-toilet bathroom.
FILLING A GAP: WATERLESS TOILETS
Characteristic of many sprawling, unplanned areas encircling cities
around the world, peri-urban Cochabamba does not have piped wa-
ter services. Rather, trucks bring water from a variety of sources and
sell it at prices double than what these folks’ richer neighbors with
household connections pay thirty minutes away in the city center.
Water is extremely scarce, expensive, and people are careful not
to waste a drop. To complicate matters, soil has high concentrations
of clay, making pit latrines unattractive as the wastes don’t permeate
through the clay soil. So with the challenges of soil impermeability, no
water with which to flush your wastes away, and no pipes to carry that
waste out of sight and out of mind, progress with building a sanitation
solution can easily stall. Another option was clearly needed.
Results from the market analysis seemed to indicate that a smartly
designed, non-water using, composting toilet could be filling a gap in
the current market in District 9. People associated bricks with prog-
ress; nobody wanted to invest money in a simple pit toilet. If they
were going to part with hard-earned cash, it had to be for something
high-quality, something that could increase the value of their home,
or their social standing.
Throughout the peri-urban areas, WFP-B worked with local ma-
sons to build 10 elevated twin-pit composting toilets. Families paid
anywhere from $400 to over $1000 to have the toilet of their dreams,
complete with shower and washing station in some cases.
FINANCIAL ALTERNATIVES TO ALLEVIATE
MARKET CONSTRAINTS
Concurrent with introducing a new toilet product, (WFP-B) facilitated
innovative ways to pay for it:
• Loan: For interested families that qualify, WFP-B partnered with
Habitat for Humanity to encourage them to offer loans for three
different toilet models. Despite some successes, these loans do
require several guarantees, including land titles, which has been
difficult for families to provide and will need to be addressed if
more households are to access this option
• A local “One-Stop Shop” and Self-build Options: Many families
are in the process of building homes and already have some of
the materials available to build a toilet. In this case, if a family is
interested in building a toilet, they can call a small local business
–SISE (Servicio Integral de Saneamiento Ecologico), who will sell
them the rest of the materials and provide technical assistance
while the family builds the toilet. SISE is aiming to fill a gap in
the market by providing a “one-stop sanitation shop,” whereby
households can access affordable sanitation products, designs,
financial options, and technical support. In the self-build model,
the family pays half of the money up front and the remainder when
the toilet is finished.
SMARTER SUBSIDIES
Designing solutions for what people can afford, instead of designing
solutions based on a charity’s budget is one step towards a sustain-
able sanitation service that can function without an NGO.
Examples of smarter subsidies include:
• Supporting a market analysis to understand the consumer and
the current options available
• Funding innovations to make technology appropriate (such as
the waterless latrine), bring down materials costs and improve the
sanitation supply chain
• Promoting sanitation through creative radio, art, and athletic cam-
paigns.
“People associate bricks with
progress; nobody wants to invest
money in a simple pit toilet. If they
are going to part with hard-earned
cash, it has to be high-quality to
help increase the value of their
home or social standing”
Projects focused on toilet construction are never going to solve the
sanitation crisis, precisely because with sanitation it’s not sufficient to
build enough toilets for a given population today. Communities grow,
some very quickly. We define sustainable sanitation as the process of
providing everybody with a toilet of their choice and associated toilet
services (emptying, maintaining, upgrading) - forever.
A lofty goal, for sure, but one that sets in motion very different
types of programs than a goal to give one community a certain num-
ber of toilets at one point in time. It implies working in a way that local
systems - financial services, construction, ongoing maintenance-
function without the not-so “invisible hand” of an NGO and unsus-
tainable sanitation subsidies. More importantly, it aims to ensure that
Doña Isadora, her children and grandchildren, and all of their neigh-
bors present and future, have a toilet they are happy to use, proud
to own and provides that all important, sustainable barrier between
them and water-borne diseases such as diarrhea. WWi

here has been a dramatic evolution in the application of
membranes in water and wastewater treatment during
the last 30 years. The early 1980’s saw the introduction
of the thin film composite (TFC) membrane for reverse
osmosis (RO). This was followed a few years later by
developments in ultrafiltration (UF) and microfiltration (MF) that en-
able these membranes to be applied for large scale drinking water
treatment.
The membrane research community expected nanofiltration (NF)
to undergo similar radical change. The need for this technology ap-
peared to be as compelling as for the other membranes. However,
the very success of first RO, then of UF/MF drew attention away from
the potential opportunity for NF.
Figure 1 shows the filtration spectrum for filtration technologies
in the water industry. RO removes dissolved salts, while UF and
MF remove fine particles. However, the critical application of the
removal of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) is not well addressed.
UF/MF does not remove dissolved organics unless combined with
coagulation. Even then, removal efficiency is not that high and any
specific target molecules are likely to require further treatment to
meet water quality targets.
RO membranes are fine enough to retain organics. However, the
energy cost of RO is high due to the simultaneous retention of salt.
This gives RO high operating costs since water transport across
the membrane has to overcome the osmotic pressure as salinity in-
creases on the concentrate side. Unless salt removal is the primary
goal - one example would be for a seawater feed or a brackish water
source - then RO is likely to be too energy intensive for general water
treatment purposes.
NF offers the promise of removing organics without a significant
reduction of ionic species, thereby meeting important water quality
targets that are developing in the water industry.
DRIVERS
In broad terms, the driver for RO has been the need to develop alter-
native water supplies by removing a wide range of contaminants from
impaired water sources. In contrast, the primary driver for UF/MF has
been to meet newly introduced drinking water quality legislation.
There has been a need for additional water resources in arid areas
such as the Middle East for some decades. More recently, this pres-
sure has increased due to a gradual coastal migration, with popula-
tions tending to move towards warmer drier climates often near the
coast. Seawater desalination using RO has been a primary solution
to this requirement and the market has been growing at a compound
growth rate of 17% pa for more than a decade [1].
Drivers for UF/MF have been developed to provide a disinfection
barrier. The targets have focused on the removal of small particles
including viruses, bacteria and protozoan parasites such as crypto-
sporidium and giardia [2].
However, for several years there has been an increasing concern
with dissolved organics such as pesticides, agricultural residuals and
pharmaceuticals. So far legislation has not been systematically intro-
duced to address these contaminants but the Environmental Protec-
tion Agency (EPA) in the U.S. and the European Union have under-
taken comprehensive reviews of the problem and potential solutions.
Currently, ozone is used in an Advanced Oxidation Process
(AOP), potentially in combination with granular activated Carbon
(GAC), to reduce pesticides. Also, UV can be used. However, the
target molecules are now smaller and more stable than the original
compounds of interest making the challenge for destruction and/or
removal even greater.
HISTORICAL REVIEW AND CURRENT STATUS OF NF
In the early days of RO development, Quality Control (QC) failures
were sold at reduced prices and in some cases these elements were
referred to as NF. This did a great disservice to NF from which it has
taken years to recover. These QC rejects from RO did not perform
at all like NF is supposed to, since monovalent salt rejection was far
too high.
Specific products were developed for NF in the 1990’s based
on an open TCF membrane in a spiral wound element like RO.
These products have been very successfully employed in the
oil and gas sector. The application here is for the rejection of
divalent ions, particularly barium and sulphate, from injection
water for offshore oil wells. The fact that monovalent ion rejec-
tion with these membranes was also quite high did not matter
in this application.
The important targets of divalent ion removal needed to be
achieved with high efficiency. By 2000, NF spiral development
received a boost with the introduction of products designed to
remove organics without reducing the inorganic ion concentra-
Nifty Nanofi ltration
New Developments Show Promise
It has taken years for nanofiltration membranes to shake off negative connotations from
the days when they were misnamed as failed reverse osmosis technology. Dr Graeme K
Pearce discusses the latest technology developments and installations, including ceramic
membranes varying from single hollow fibers to multi-bore monoliths.

tion too much. Some of these products used the original TFC
chemistry while others use different polymers, such as cellulose
acetate and polyethersulfone. They have been quite widely ap-
plied in the North American municipal water industry in Florida,
the Pacific coast and Canada for the removal of compounds re-
sponsible for colour. They have also been used outside America
in Scotland and Scandinavia.
A critical issue for water treatment is energy cost and this is be-
coming more important with the development of alternative sources.
Energy costs of traditional fresh water sources are generally very low.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, the energy cost of desalination
is up to ten times as high and can only be justified on energy terms
where the alternative is to transfer the water from far away, as can be
seen in the State Water Project in California.
Wastewater offers promise as a lower cost resource but this too
is fairly energy intensive due to aeration requirements. Current NF
spirals use less energy than wastewater reuse schemes but are sig-
nificantly
NF PRODUCT DEVELOPMENTS
The problem with spirals is that they require excellent feed quality to
avoid fouling. Thus the NF stage is effectively added on to existing
treatment. A new range of NF products target the removal of organic
molecules but minimise the rejection of inorganics. By doing so, they
Figure 2: Hollow Fibre NF
offer the promise of lower pressure operation. However, high organic
rejection means that it is important that the membrane is low foul-
ing since at high recovery, the concentration of organics in the feed
stream will rise sharply. Another feature of these new product devel-
opments is that they do not use a spiral format, thereby reducing the
need for pre-treatment.
The first NF product reviewed here has been launched recently
from Pentair-Xflow (formerly Norit) and is based on a hollow fibre for-
mat. This product is based on the same PES fibre used for UF but
with a molecular weight cut-off < 1.8 kDa, providing a rejection of
75% UV 254 organic compounds. The product is commercially avail-
able and is being used on demonstration scale. The great advantage
of hollow fibre compared to spiral wound is the elimination of any
significant pre-treatment, as solids introduced into the feed channel
during the filtration cycle are efficiently displaced during backwash
or flushing.
A different approach has been taken by DXV, a new start up in the
US. The firm’s product is based on a low fouling flat sheet format. The
module does not use a spacer between the sheets and relies on cross
flow circulation to keep the channels clean. DXV has reached the stage
of pilot operation and has focused on wastewater polishing using a
single membrane treatment stage, with infrequent chemical cleaning.
Pilots have shown that the chemical cleaning requirement for the RO
stage can potentially be eliminated or at least significantly reduced.
Another U.S. start up with an interesting NF membrane tech-
nology is Clean Membranes Inc. This early stage start up is com-
mercialising technology developed at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of
Technology). The grafted co-polymer membrane is a modified highly
hydrophilic polyacrylonitrile (PAN) membrane which can be produced
at pore sizes from NF to fine UF.
The final company in this brief review is the German company ItN,
which is commercialising a range of ceramic membranes, as shown
in figure 3. The products vary from singe hollow fibres to multi-bore
monoliths. A wide range of pore size cut-offs is claimed extending
down to the NF part of the spectrum, which is unusual among com-
mercial ceramic products. ItN recently announced a commercial in-
stallation in Saudi Arabia pre-treating a highly brackish well water in
place of conventional or UF/MF pre-treatment. The NF pre-treatment
is claimed to allow 20% higher RO throughput.
MOVING FORWARD
Nanofiltration has been an overlooked technology in the membrane
separations spectrum. NF spirals have been introduced into water
and wastewater applications for some time but they are dependent
on extensive pre-treatment. Existing NF products targeting organic
molecule removal also tend to remove salts making energy use high.
These products promise improved energy efficiency since they all
feature low fouling membranes with limited salt rejection. Equally im-
portant, they use module formats that do not require pre-treatment.

ater and energy efficiency are intrinsically linked.
Large quantities of electricity are required to shift
water from source to tap and water is used to
create electricity. It’s relationship that unfortunately
comes at a price. Estimates suggest that approxi-
mately 80% of municipal water and wastewater processing and dis-
tribution costs are for electricity.
You only have to look at the U.S., where drinking water and waste-
water systems, according to the Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA), account for 3% to 4% of national energy consumption. Ap-
proximately 56 billion kilowatt hours are used by the industry in the
continent alone.
Population growth and tightening drinking water regulations mean
that utilities could be paying out even more as operating costs in-
crease steadily. In
times of austerity, this
is a major concern for
companies globally
and more so for the
individuals that con-
trol their budgets.
With the EPA say-
ing that potential sav-
ings of 15% to 30%
are readily available
in water and waste-
water plants, the race
is on to increase the
energy efficiency of
products. After all,
this has now become
a key prerequisite for
customers.
The finger of
blame has often been
pointed at aeration
technology, com-
monly criticised for
representing a large
proportion of electric-
ity costs in wastewa-
ter treatment plants.
But new technolo-
gies are frequently
being developed.
As an example,
last year’s June-July
issue of Water &
Wastewater Interna-
tional magazine de-
tailed what the arrival of
screw technology would
mean for rotary lobe de-
signs.
A test witnessed by
the German Technical
Monitoring Association
(Technische Überwac-
hungs-Verein) pitted the
Atlas Copco ZS screw
blower against a tri-lobe
blower, in a performance
test. The result showed
the ZS screw blower was
23.8% more energy effi-
cient at 0.5 bar (e)/7 psig, and 39.7% at 0.9 bar (e)/13 psig.
FUNDING THE BLADE
This year saw the UK’s Carbon Trust granting £390,000 to start
up company Lontra to help develop its Blade Compressor, which
it claims could reduce energy spend on wastewater aeration by
20%. This, the company says, could help lead to a payback in as
little as 18 months, within a five year AMP cycle, as seen in the
UK. As the cost of electricity for aeration can constitute 30% of the
operating costs for wastewater treatment, this is understandably
attractive.
Furthermore, UK water and wastewater company Severn Trent
has partnered with Lontra to provide a test site in Worcester for a
pre-production prototype. The test programme is currently dem-
onstrating the efficiency of the technology at pressures of up to 3
bar and at speeds up to 5000 rpm. Lab testing will be conducted
up until Autumn 2011 and site testing until Spring 2012.
The trial has also established reasons for more energy efficient
aeration in the UK:
• Energy efficiency and a drive to reduce costs
• Cap-ex constraints within five year regulatory AMP periods, re-
quiring short payback
• Changing requirements, for example as space pressures increase
the need to change designs of aeration tanks
• Diverse and expensive compressor maintenance schedules and

SWEDISH/SCOTTISH AERATION PARTNERSHIP
Elsewhere, Swedish aeration firm Sorubin has partnered with Scot-
tish Water in the UK to conduct an operational performance test of
the company’s Microluft wastewater aerators, also touted to help im-
prove energy efficiency by 20%.
Blade of Glory
With aeration accounting for up to 30% of a wastewater plant’s operating costs, the race
is on to find new and improved solutions. WWi looks at how a new Blade Compressor
design, being trialled with Severn Trent Water, could reduce energy spend by 20% and a
trial of Swedish technology in the UK could help a major utility save £4.7 million.
Blade process design and operation
According to Lontra, the design,
common to the compressor, su-
percharger, expander and en-
gine, is “novel positive displace-
ment geometry”. The basic unit
uses a ring shaped chamber with
a continually open inlet port and
an outlet port valved by the action
of the rotor.
The principal components are
a blade ring, which rotates and
rotating disc. The blade cuts
through the disc.
The compression chamber is
formed as the blade, rotating in
the housing, works against the
disc. The blade passes through
the disc and is double acting,
drawing gas in behind the com-
pressing head. The compressed
gas then exits through a port in
the housing.
Product design allows for a vari-
able flow device where the intake
area, and pumped capacity and
compression ratio, can be con-
trolled through a sliding port.
The 1800 m
3
/hour Blade Com-
pressor is a 35kW unit, produc-
ing 0.5 bar Gauge and a flow rate
of 30Am
3
per minute at 3000 rpm.
The Blade Compressor test programme is demon-
strating the technology at speeds up to 5000 rpm

Aeration
The trial started in February this year and will last until August. An
oxygen transfer test will be carried out by the firm, which consists
of measuring the energy needed to fully oxygenate a body of clean
water with Microluft.
This technology uses a bottom mounted aerator. As can be seen
from the diagram (right), it works by generating a vortex in a tube
that has contact with the atmospheric air, a pillar of air reaches all the
way down to the bottom of the tube. Here, a special impeller sucks
in a mix of air and water and puts it under very high pressure. Very
small bubbles are dispersed from the aerator as a result. And it is the
size of the bubbles which Sorubin says is fundamental to improving
energy efficiency.
It says that the longer it takes for a bubble to rise through the
water, the more time it will have to release oxygen. Naturally, as small
bubbles rise more slowly than large bubbles, it is better to create
small bubbles since they elevate slowly. Generating bubbles as deep
down as possible is also important, the firm adds, as it allows them
to travel upwards for as long as possible.
“The most energy effective aeration technology is the one that
does nothing but creating small bubbles, deep down with the least
energy input,” Sorubin says.
It is hoped that following the trial, Sorubin’s technology will be
retrofitted to a wastewater facility in Dalderse. With aeration already
said to be costing Scottish Water £7 million per year, it’s clear that
financial savings through more efficient technology couldn’t come
soon enough. According to the Swedish firm, if its aerators are fully
employed across the company’s sites, a saving of around £4.7 mil-
lion could be made.

CONCLUSION
Statistics about the heavy energy consumption of aeration technolo-
gies are not new and manufacturers have been attempting to im-
prove their products for years. What is new is how air is being gener-
ated for wastewater treatment. The industry will be eagerly awaiting
the results from the Severn Trent Water and Scottish Water trials to
see these new technologies being proven. And if they can deliver
energy savings of 20%, across numerous facilities under a municipal-
ity’s control, then this can’t be a bad thing. WWi

P
olluted and contaminated water is
an ever-increasing global challenge
that is growing to dire proportions.
As urban populations increase –
from a current 3.4 billion to a pro-
jected six billion over the next 40 years – pro-
viding clean, safe water will only become more
complex as most cities currently lack adequate
wastewater management due to aging, absent
or inadequate sewage infrastructure. Further-
more, clean and safe water is a scarce resource
in rural or developing countries – where 90% of
wastewater that is discharged daily is untreated.
Often this is because it’s not possible to connect
existing wells to a central filtration device. But
with every challenge lies a solution. In such situa-
tions, residents can be supplied in these environ-
ments with a water filtration system that could be
retrofitted to old, existing or new wells, cisterns,
tanker trucks or almost any source of fresh water.
One example is the UF-P2 prototype, designed by Culligan,
which was put into action sooner than expected. Through a part-
nership with international relief organisation, Convoy of Hope, the
systems were pressed into service to provide long-term support to
Haitian recovery efforts in the wake of two devastating earthquakes
in January 2010.
URGENT WATER NEEDS
Haiti and its people are no strangers to natural disasters. In 2008
alone, four separate hurricanes or tropical storms swept through
the country. But on January 12, 2010, Haiti suffered its most severe
tragedy when a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit just 10 miles west of
Port-au-Prince. The quake sent 33 aftershocks ranging in magnitude
from 4.2 to 5.9 throughout the country and left three million in need of
emergency aid in its wake.
Despite thousands of bottles of water being shipped to earth-
quake survivors, water became even more important in the aftermath
of the quake as many Haitians remained outdoors, exposed to the
heat and sun, for fear of structures collapsing from aftershocks. It
soon became apparent that the country was in need of a longer-term
solution for clean, safe water to support rebuilding and recovery ef-
forts. Although still in the prototype phase, the UF-P2 systems were
shipped from Culligan’s commercial
assembly operations in Vernon,
Hills, IL to Convoy of Hope’s stag-
ing center in Springfield, MO. From
there, three units were air freighted
into Haiti, originally destined for the
Port-au-Prince airfield. However, conditions at the airport caused the
flights to be diverted to the Dominican Republic.
The systems were transported by truck across the Dominican
Republic into Haiti on unpaved, treacherous roads to the Mission of
Hope in Titayen, a volunteer village/clinic/school in Bon Repo and
the Quisqueya Chapel in Port-au-Prince. The systems were set up
immediately and starting filtering water on the same day. Samples
taken upon startup verified that the water had no detectable bacteria
and contained the appropriate level of residual chlorine.
OPERATION AND FILTRATION DETAILS
So how does the system work? A built-in pump can draw in water
from local sources, including a lake, river or shallow well, using a com-
bination of ultrafiltration membranes and carbon filtration to clean the
water and improve its taste. The UF-P2’s pump can draw in water from
storage tanks and surface water supplies – such as rivers or lakes –
and from up to ten feet below ground. The system also uses chlorine to
inhibit bacteria and microbiological contamination at the filtration site.
Smart Well Technology
for Disaster Response
Emergency situations require emergency solutions. When the 7.0 mag-
nitude earthquake struck Haiti there was an urgent need for long-term,
clean water supplies. This article looks at how a prototype industrial
water purification system using ultrafiltration membranes and automat-
ic chlorination technology helped provide fresh water supply.
Systems set up immediately
Units are capable of processing 12,000 to
24,000 gallons of water a day and storage
tanks hold and dispense 250 gallons

June/July | 2011 www.wwinternational.com
Water Well Development
Automatic chlorination provides some residual disinfectant for cas-
es where the treated water may be exposed to dirty or contaminated
storage containers before use. The UF-P2 adds a chlorine “residual”
to the treated water after it passes through the
ultrafiltration membranes and before the water is
pumped into the 250 gallons storage tank. This
residual is particularly important in emergency wa-
ter conditions where water recipients sometimes
attempt to transport clean water in dirty contain-
ers; the residual helps to “minimise” contamina-
tion within the containers. Also, ultrafiltration mem-
branes are ideal for emergency situations as they
only need brief periods of backwashing, wasting
very little of the available water supply.
The units are capable of processing approxi-
mately 12,000 to 24,000 gallons of water a day
and include a water storage tank that holds and
dispenses 250 gallons of water. Water quality
and system performance can be monitored via
a cellular phone connection to eliminate the need
for a skilled operator on-site.
MAINTAINING A MEASURABLE, HEALTHY
WATER SUPPLY
The UF-P2 systems helped to supply 600-800
gallons of water every three days, with medical
staff at the orphanage using water to clean medi-
cal supplies, and at the Quisqueya Chapel, 250-
300 people benefit from clean residential potable
water per day.
“The water provided by each system is
checked once per week for residual chlorine and
microbiological contamination,” says Paul Coro-
leuski, field director disaster response, Convoy
of Hope. “But, overall, the operator maintenance
required to ensure clean, safe water is being de-
livered is very minimal. In fact, even on the type of
water we are treating, we expect that the filters will
only need to be replaced every six to 12 months.”
A detailed laboratory analysis of water pro-
duced three months after in initial installation
showed the water quality was nearly identical to
the water produced on day one – and the system
flow rate is around 94% of the rate when the units
were first installed.
Convoy of Hope planned to continue deliv-
ering clean, high quality water at all three of the
UF-P2 installation sites through the first quarter of
2011. Specifically, the unit installed at the Quisqu-
eya Chapel will continue to provide residential po-
table water, while the other two units will support
daily operations at the Mission of Hope in Titayen
and the volunteer site in Bon Repo.
LESSONS LEARNED
Following the results in Haiti, Culligan says it is planning a few minor
modifications to improve the suitability of the systems for emergen-
cy response efforts. Planned improvements include smaller, lighter,
two-part design for easy transport, including jugs or containers to
transport water, and the ability to run the system using solar power.
Requests have also been received following Haiti from International
Licensees in the Dominican Republic, El Salvador and Ecuador for
similar smart well technology applications. WWi

A
ccording to the Australian Government National Wa-
ter Commission, mining activities in Australia account
for 4% of the country’s total water consumption. This
compares to agriculture (50%), household (12%) and
manufacturing (5%). While 4% may seem minute com-
pared to the usage of the agricultural sector, this still equates to 508
gigalitres, the equivalent of 254,000 Olympic swimming pools.
Access to a reliable source of water is an essential requirement for
coal mines. Even those mines that do not wash their product through
a preparation plant need significant quantities for dust management,
drilling, human consumption and numerous other uses. And coal
cleaning uses a considerable amount of water. It’s cleaned to improve
its combustability, which reduces CO2 emissions and to ensure that it
is suitable for steel making.
A report from the Australian National University and Department
of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities
highlighted the direct financial consequences of poor operational wa-
ter management for the coal industry. Running out of water can cost
money in lost production: if water is poorly managed, product quality
can be compromised. In the long run, if companies do not have a
good record of ensuring water quality, then they may not receive ap-
proval to open new mines.
Improving Water Effi ciencies
Down Under
Coal mining operations in Australia require huge
quantities of water, extracted from groundwater,
rivers and dams, to help prepare products for
market. Remote monitoring is essential. A look at

Flow Level Measurement
One of Australia’s largest exporters of seaborne metallurgical
coal operates coal mines in Central Queensland. These mines are
supplied by fresh water extracted from borefields, rivers and dams.
It owns and operates hundreds of kilometers of pipelines, through
which it moves thousands of litres of fresh water per year to its own
and competitors’ operations and to local mining communities.
The monitoring of water use to support mining operations in re-
mote areas represents a significant challenge to all mineral compa-
nies operating in Australia. Often the infrastructure and management
systems provided by the company are also used to supply local
communities and rural industries. Furthermore, the report highlighted
earlier states that a good mine water management system should
include a site-specific strategic water plan based on the following
goals: maintain salinity level in coal washing to ensure product quality
is not compromised (~2500ppm); adopt leading practices for water
use productivity (ML/Mt) in coal preparation and underground mining,
minimise discharge of used water; maintain coal washing salinity level
to ensure flotation benefit (~5000 ppm) and finally that there should
be no loss of production due to inability to supply fit-for-purpose wa-
ter.
It is the latter which presents opportunities to the international wa-
ter sector. Measurement and balancing of water flows can allow in-
vestigation and analysis into water management and substitutions. An
essential pre-requisite to gaining better understanding of water con-
sumption is a more comprehensive water flow monitoring network.
Krohne Australia recently supplied 26 WATERFLUX 3070 C battery
operated stand-alone water meters to help with this challenge. The
electromagnetic meters were chosen to help “provide a reliable solution
for the mine site’s and communities remote water monitoring needs”.
The supplied meter’s flow sensor design includes a rectangular
cross-section, which the manufacturer says allows for a significant
reduction of magnetic field excitation. Coils are arranged so that a
strong, homogeneous magnetic field is formed.
This, adds Krohne, ensures the measurement is independent of
the flow profile and measurements are very stable. Results include
good low flow performance and operation without inlet and outlet
runs. An optional data logger and GSM module allows for remote
meter reading and wireless transmission of measurement data and
status information. WWi Enquiry No. 220

Australia is helping to change the worldwide perception of desalination. Water security threats
from climate change and uncertain water availability are key drivers. Neil Palmer addresses the
latest developments to the country’s desalination capacity, including renewable energy power.
D
esalination has “come of age” in Australia. The level of in-
vestment in desalination technology in the arid nation in
just six years has been astonishing. By the end of 2012,
Australia will have its sixth large-scale seawater desalina-
tion plant operational in as many years, supplying water
to all mainland state capital cities with between 10 to 40% of their public
water needs.
More plants for both urban and industrial supply are in planning stages,
and millions of dollars are simultaneously being poured into research and
development innovation by government, industry and private enterprise.
Australia is the world’s driest inhabited continent and the continued
effects of cyclical droughts and climate change mean its growing popula-
tion of 22 million (expected to grow 50% by 2050) generally requires up
to five times the water storage of an equivalent population in the United
Kingdom to secure reliable supply.
A combination of drought, climate change, advances in reverse os-
mosis technology, reduced unit cost and population growth has resulted
in an anticipated increase in desalinated water over 10 years between
2005-2015 from less than 100 ML/d to more than 1800 ML/d.
Australia’s first plant came into service in November 2006 - the en-
vironmentally pioneering Perth Seawater Desalination Plant in Western
Australia, with a capacity of 145 ML/d.
Since then, a further five large seawater desalination plants have been
created along the coastline with the largest at Wonthaggi, just outside
Melbourne, at 450 ML/d capacity nearing completion. By 2015, these
will be capable of providing up to 30% of Perth’s drinking water needs,
10% of Brisbane’s, 15% of Melbourne’s, 10% of Sydney’s and 40% of
Adelaide’s from the plentiful sea resource.
The Federal and Western Australian governments recognised the need
to fast-track innovation, energy efficiency and cost savings in desalination
technologies and in 2009 established the National Centre of Excellence
in Desalination Australia (NCEDA), based at Murdoch University in Perth.
NCEDA has been allocated $A20 million over five years for research from
the Federal Government’s Urban Water and Desalination Plan.
State by state, it’s evident that the rapid development of desalination
capability and innovation in Australia will continue – confirming its place as
a prime mover on the world stage.
EXPANSION IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA
The Perth Seawater Desalination Plant, (PSDP) located at Kwinana on
the Cockburn Sound in WA could be regarded as a world-leading model
for future sustainable seawater desalination plants. At the time of its con-
struction (2005-6), the A$387 million plant was the largest in the Southern
Hemisphere, and Australia’s first large scale seawater desalination facility.
Its capacity makes it the current biggest single water source feeding
into the metropolitan city of Perth, providing 17% of public water needs.
The plant was built by Multiplex-Degremont Joint Venture, in alliance with
the Water Corporation, and is being operated for 25 years by a Degre-
mont/Water Corporation alliance. An associated 82 MW wind farm north
of Perth injects over 272 GWhr per year into the grid from which Water
Corporation purchases 185 GWhr, enough to offset all energy used by
the desalination plant. This is therefore the world’s largest desalination
plant powered effectively from renewable energy.
Such energy with low specific energy consumption is achieved from
the plant’s efficient design, incorporating isobaric energy recovery de-
vices. This ensures that it’s the world’s ‘greenest’ plant. Taking this into
account and considering its small physical footprint, the Kwinana plant is
considered one of the most sustainable water sources in Australia.
Its success has led Perth authorities to build a second plant. The
Southern Seawater Desalination Plant, producing 150 ML/d from the
ocean south of Perth at Binningup... [CONTINUES OF PAGE 60]

Dual-Membrane Technology Enables
Water Reuse in Gaojing Power Plant
Exhibitor promotion: Dow Water & Process Solutions (DW&PS)
C
onstructed in the 1960s by Datang Corporation and locat-
ed in Mengtougou, the Gaojing China Power Plant is one
of the earliest to supply heat and electricity to Bejiing’s
local communities and industries. Wa-
ter recycling sys-
tems for cooling tower
blowdown have become
more and more common
in fossil fuel power plants
because of
the large vol-
ume (about
60% of all
w a s t e -
w a t e r
c o me s
from pow-
er plants). Therefore, there was a high
need to ensure positive reuse of cooling tower blow down
for boiler feed water.
The plant faced increasing environmental regulations from
the Chinese government over the years. The main technical
challenge for Gaojinng was having a water stream with very un-
stable and high hardness, HCO
3
- concentration, silicon content,
SO
4
2
- and sometimes COD. High salt content and unstable pH
properties make cooling tower blowdown water a difficult type
of wastewater to reuse.
In 2003, the plant engineers selected Dow Ultrafiltration
modules and Dow Filmtec brackish water reverse osmosis ele-
ments as a solution for reuse using the blow down from their
cooling towers as boiler feed water. For proper pre-treatment and chemical dos-
ing, Dow Ultrafiltration modules and FILMTEC membranes were also used to
help eliminate problems in subsequent wastewater reuse systems.
Traditionally, the source of the cooling tower makeup at Gaojing was from
surface water, but was changed to secondary effluent from the Gaobeidian Mu-
nicipal Wastewater Treat-
ment Plant in 2007. Due
to this type of wastewater
concentration, contami-
nants varied substantially
between seasons and
cooling tower makeup
quality.
At this time, the engi-
neers selected Dow Water
& Process Solutions’ dual-
membrane technology to overcome a waste stream containing high hardness,
alkalinity, silicon dioxide and sulfate, typical in cooling water blow down to help
the power plant meet increasing environmental requirements from the gov-
ernment. The integrated technology, together with proper pre-treatment and
chemical dosing, helped the plant to realise more than 70% reuse of the cool-
ing tower blow down - even after five years of operation.

PROCESS
FLOW AND KEY
TREATMENT
UNITS
As can be seen in Figure 1,
the blowdown water was first
pumped into a multi-media filter to
remove suspended solids and reduce the
turbidity. Then the UF unit further decreased
the turbidity and protected the subsequent
RO unit from colloids, suspended solids,
bacteria and large molecular weight organics.
Reducing agents, anti-scalant and acid were then dosed before the first pass
RO system, in which most of the dissolved solids and SiO
2
were removed.
The permeate water from the first pass RO was then degasified, and the pH
was increased to 9.5 by NaOH dosing before entering the second pass RO.
In the end, EDI was installed for final demineralization to meet the requirement
of boiler make up. Dow’s experience in membrane technology enabled them to
offer innovative solutions to guide application development in this area. As in the
case of Gaojing Power Plant, dual membrane technology together with proper
pre-treatment and chemical dosing helped them to realise more than 70% reuse
of the cooling tower blowdown. www.dowwaterandprocess.com

A
s anyone who lives in arid regions of Asia Pacific knows, water
shortages have become an increasingly frequent and troubling
fact of life. The area’s spiraling population growth, economic de-
velopment and urbanisation have multiplied the demand for fresh
water, straining existing fresh water resources.
Fortunately, a variety of cost-effective desalination technologies have
emerged in tandem with the region’s water needs. Over the past decade, IDE
Technologies, the desalination industry’s technology leader, has deployed some
of the APAC region’s largest and most advanced desalination plants.
TIANJIN SDIC - CHINA’S LARGEST DESALINATION PLANT
Tianjin SDIC is a state-of-the-art electric plant that leverages IDE’s unique
desalination technologies to narrow its dependence upon external fresh water
resources.
The plant uses IDE MED (Multi-Effect Distillation) units to create the highly-
pure water needed in its steam boilers from the region’s plentiful seawater,
and powers the units with the waste heat generated by the electricity plant,
an advantage that reduces the plant’s desalination costs while improving its
environmental profiles. So far, IDE has successfully deployed four MED units
with a total capacity of 100,000 m
3
/day, and has been chosen to deploy four
additional units, currently under construction (to be completed during 2012),
doubling the capacity to 200,000 m
3
/day.
RELIANCE INDUSTRIES, DESALINATION IN INDIA
The Reliance Group is India’s largest private sector enterprise, and its petroleum
refinery is one of the world’s largest refinery complexes. From 1998-2007, Reli-
ance installed nine IDE MED desalination units with a total capacity of 160,000
m
3
/day, to provide high-quality feed water for its boilers and drinking water for
local residents.
CAPE PRESTON, AUSTRALIA: ONE OF THE WORLD’S LARGEST
MEMBRANE PLANTS
In 2008, the giant Cape Preston magnetite iron ore mine, the first of its kind in
Western Australia, selected IDE to deploy an advanced SWRO (Sea Water Re-
verse Osmosis) desalination plant on an Engineering, Procurement and
Construction Support Services basis. The plant will supply 140,000 m
3

of fresh water per day.
MIDDLE EAST PROJECTS
It was in 2005 when IDE began operating the 118 million m
3
/year
Ashkelon plant, which at the time was the largest SWRO facility. After
winning the Desalination Plant of the Year 2006 award, this milestone
opened new horizons for the international desalination industry and
mega-SWRO desalination. Five years later IDE followed the Ashkelon
success with the inauguration of its 127 million m
3
/year Hadera plant.
Both plants were completed ahead of schedule and are producing
continuous supplies of high-quality water at some of the world’s low-
est-ever BOT contract prices.
ABOUT THE COMPANY

[CONTINUED FROM PAGE 54] ...will be completed ahead of sched-
ule this year by Spanish consortium Technicas Reunidas S.A/Valoriza Agua, AJ
Lucas and Worley Parsons. Once operational, Binningup will double Perth’s
desalinated water resources to over 30% and similar to the Kwinana plant, all
energy used will be offset by energy from renewable sources.
Immediate duplication of the Binningup plant has been recommended by
water and desalination experts to meet the expected shortfall in public supplies.
This takes into account predicted ongoing dry seasons in the south-west region
of WA and critically low reservoir levels, and intake/outfall infrastructure has al-
ready been built to enable this.
Once expanded, it would then be possible to meet half of Perth’s water
needs via the two desalination plants in the short term. Options for further in-
creases in daily drinking water capacity for Perth include indirect potable reuse
of wastewater or a third seawater desalination plant.
A 175 ML/d private seawater desalination plant is being constructed for CIT-
IC Pacific Sino Iron at Cape Preston, near Karratha. With process design by IDE,
prefabrication of much of the plant was undertaken in China and shipped to site.
Completion is expected at the end of 2011.
Two thermal desalination plants have also been recently built for industrial
applications. These are a 3.6 ML/d mechanical vapour compression operational
plant on the Burrup Peninsula in the state’s North-West for Burrup Fertilisers
Ammonia Plant and a 7.2 ML/d multi-effect distillation plant at Ravensthorpe in
the South-West for BHP Billiton’s nickel mine. Unfortunately the Ravensthorpe
plant was mothballed (along with the mine) as a result of the 2008/2009 global
financial crisis.
GOLD COAST PLANT SUPPLIES SOUTH-EAST QUEENSLAND
Desalination is a key component of both the Gold Coast Waterfuture Strategy
and the South-East Queensland Regional Drought Strategy Contingency Sup-
ply Plan. The plant at Tugun, close to the Gold Coast Airport, has been com-
pleted and produces 125 ML/d.
A 25 km pipeline delivers desalinated water to the Water Grid, SE Queensland’s
bulk water supply network. The plant was built by the Gold Coast Alliance, a
Veolia-John Holland Joint Venture, in alliance with Gold Coast Water and the
Queensland State Government, and the plant will be operated for 10 years by
Veolia in alliance with Gold Coast Water.
SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES PLANT COMPLETED LAST YEAR
Sydney Water has built a 250 ML/d reverse osmosis seawater desalination plant
which recently won the GWI Desalination Plant of the Year Award. The design is
capable of accommodating a future duplication in capacity to 500 ML/d.
The plant, which cost around $A2 billion, is located on the Kurnell Peninsula
south of Botany Bay which already hosts an oil refinery. The plant was designed
and constructed by the Blue Water Joint Venture, consisting of John Holland
Group Pty Ltd and Veolia Water.
Veolia will operate and maintain the plant for Sydney Water. As for the WA
plants, the Sydney Desalination Plant will purchase renewable energy equivalent
to the energy consumed from a wind farm, resulting in no net greenhouse gas
emissions from operations.
EXTENSIVE LANDSCAPED MELBOURNE PLANT AND PIPELINE
The Victorian State Government is building a 450 ML/d desalination plant to
ensure reliable supplies for Melbourne. The plant is located 120km from Mel-
bourne near Wonthaggi. This site was chosen so that intakes and saline outfalls
are into the open sea of Bass Strait, rather than into confined Port Phillip or
Westernport Bays.
It is being delivered by the private sector as a BOOT project using Victoria’s
Public Private Partnerships framework. Construction of the plant was awarded
to AquaSure, a consortium consisting of Suez Environnement, Degremont,
Thiess and Macquarie Capital Group.
Construction began in September 2009, and the $3.5 billion project is near-
ing completion. The project incorporates a number of significant environmental
protection and social amenity measures, such as a fully architecturally designed
facility with intensive landscaping integration, a planted green roof, a coastal
park, fully underground power supply with co-located broadband communica-
tions cable, and long 4 metre diameter intake and outlet tunnels.
The extensive underground pipeline connects the plant to Melbourne’s
Cardinia Reservoir east of the city and is capable of providing up to a third of
Melbourne’s annual water supply. The plant is estimated to use about 90 MW
of power, the equivalent of which will be purchased from renewable energy
sources.
SOUTH AUSTRALIA AS A CONSUMER OF DESALINATED WATER
A 300 ML/d desalination plant for Adelaide began operations in May on a site
in the former Mobil refinery site at Port Stanvac on St Vincent Gulf, south of the
city. The $A1.4 billion design-build-operate project was awarded to Adelaide

Aqua, a consortium of Acciona Agua, McConnell Dowell, Abigroup and United
Utilities Australia. The plant’s construction was in response to the Millennium
drought (1997 – 2010) which reduced flows in the state’s River Murray, saw
reservoir levels fall critically low and severe water restrictions implemented. Ini-
tially construction of a 150 ML/d seawater desalination plant was announced in
2008 and capacity was subsequently doubled to 300 ML/d. This single source
will now be capable of supplying about 40% of Adelaide’s current annual water
consumption. As in other states, renewable energy will be purchased to offset
the entire plant’s energy requirements.
Another 280 ML/d seawater desalination plant is planned for Whyalla in the
north of SA to provide additional water resources for the expanded BHP Billiton
copper, uranium, gold and silver Olympic Dam mine and processing plant near
Roxby Downs. This plant’s transfer pipeline system will carry potable water to
Olympic Dam - about 320 km in length - with a nominal pipeline diameter ex-
pected to be in excess of one metre.

SMALLER DESALINATION OPERATIONS
In addition to the large seawater desalination plants there are thought to be
more than 500 small reverse osmosis plants servicing remote mining, oil and
gas sites, power stations, medical (dialysis), food and beverage plants and
coastal and island communities.
Osmoflo, the largest Australian desalination company, has alone built more
than 270 small to medium plants since 1991. The first reverse osmosis plant
was thought to have been installed by Permutit in 1968 at Cook, a siding on the
Trans Australia Railway in the Nullarbor Plain.
The first large scale brackish water reverse osmosis plant (35 ML/d) was built
at Bayswater Power Station in NSW in 1987 for cooling water salinity control.

DESALINATION’S FUTURE IN AUSTRALIA
The Australian desalination industry and Federal Government-funded research
and development sector driven by NCEDA is growing rapidly. There are many
opportunities in design, construction and operations encouraging employment
of an increasing number of tradespeople, para-professionals and university
graduates, with research activity fostering PhD and Honours student projects
in desalination.
Climatic factors and urban population growth are expected to boost further
need for desalination plants in Australia. The Federal government’s Climate
Commission recently warned of the imminent threats to the country’s water se-
curity from climate change, which will continue to affect rainfall patterns creating
increasing uncertainty in water availability.
It’s becoming increasingly recognised by Australian authorities that the
continuous base load flow of water from seawater desalination is compara-
tively cost-effective insurance, dramatically reducing the likelihood of water
restrictions and safeguarding water-dependent industries’ ability to main-
tain operations, provide jobs and support Australia’s growing economy and
population. The future for desalination in Australia looks bright indeed. WWi

qualyng is a global leader in the international desalination
market. Our spectrum of successful, state-of-the-art prod-
ucts and services deliver fresh water – whenever and wher-
ever it is needed. In the relatively short span of time since
1996, we have garnered an excellent industry reputation
for delivering desalination plants
for production of all qualities of
water.
As a global water solutions pro-
vider addressing diverse water needs
for a variety of concerns, the com-
pany is carving a unique trail in the
desalination industry. With over 15
years experience in the desalination
industry, we have the requisite exper-
tise in designing and operating plants
across three continents. Aqualyng’s reverse osmosis-based desalination plant
solutions have increased efficiencies and reduced costly assembly times for

Koch Membrane Sys-
tems (KMS) used the
Singapore International
Water Week event to
launch a new product:
the TARGA® II HF, a new
hollow-fibre ultrafiltration
membrane system.
The membrane ele-
ment features a robust
PES membrane, which
is combined with op-
timised cartridge and
rack design. KMS said
that PES-base mem-
brane chemistry helps
to reduce membrane
fouling and improved
module design helps
improve product robust-
ness. Fibres have
been designed to meet
drinking water require-
ments and provide 4-log
virus removal. Intelligent
process controls can
handle variations in wa-
ter quality and flow with
minimal operator inter-
vention, reduced chemi-
cal use, and less energy.
The system can be applied to a variety
of ultrafiltration applications, including drink-
ing water to seawater pre-treatment, indus-
trial water treatment and tertiary wastewater
treatment.
Manny Singh, KMS vice president of tech-
nology product management, said: “The in-
telligent control system was developed after
extensive process testing with TARGA II HF
and allows users to handle variations in feed
water quality and flow variations with minimal
operator intervention while reducing overall
chemical and power consumption.”
www.kochmembrane.com
Hollow-fi bre UF
system to provide
virus removal
Hyflux also used the Singapore event to launch
its new polymeric tri-bore hollow fibre mem-
branes. The Kristal 600ET3 and Kristal 2000T3
are the latest additions to the successful Kristal®
range of hollow fibre membranes for reverse os-
mosis (RO) pre-treatment.
Each fibre now features three hollow bores at
the centre of the fibre, which the manufacturer
said ensures superior strength and a longer shelf
life, coupled with a high permeate flow rate.
The new tri-bore membranes have increased
overall diameters of 1.95mm and 2.20mm for the
Kristal 600ET3 and Kristal 2000T3 respectively
(about 40 - 45% increase from previous Kristal
membranes) while the diameter for each of the
bores is 0.6mm. The increase in the overall hol-
low fibre thickness is designed to provide even
better membrane durability and tensile load-
bearing ability.
Hyflux said this could mean that “fibre break-
age may very well be a thing of the past”. No
fibre breakage has been was observed from the
company following months of testing in operat-
ing plants.
The Kristal® membranes promise constantly
low permeate turbidity and SDI that remain is
unaffected even by large fluctuations in the feed
water quality. The main material ‘ingredient’ of
the Kristal 600ET3 membrane is polyethersul-
fone (PES) – a polymer material that is inherently
highly hydrophilic with good chemical and pH re-
sistance, much like its K600 predecessors. The
PES membrane is then modified to further aug-
ment its hydrophilicity and chemical resistance to
enhance the membrane’s filtration performance.
For the Kristal 2000T3 membrane, the polyvi-
nylidene fluoride (PVDF) material provides further
added strength, chemical resistance and protec-
tion against oxidants. It is thus more suited for
challenging applications, especially those involv-
ing higher concentrations of oxidants (from pre-
treatment dosing or as a byproduct from a previ-
ous process).
As with the rest of the membranes in the Kristal
range, the direction of flow for the permeate/ fil-
trate is from the outside of the fibre into its three
bores (outside-in).
The manufacturer concludes that as an out-
side-in membrane, it has the ability to withstand
substantial fouling and still continue to function at
its design flux. www.hyflux.com

QuantumFlux membrane modules pass
NSF Standard 61 requirements
Next generation reverse osmosis (RO) membrane technology manufacturer NanoH20’s
QuantumFlux membrane modules, for use in the production of drinking water, have re-
ceived NSF Standard 61 Certification. This standard sets criteria for the testing and evalu-
ation of products that come into contact with drinking water to ensure they do not leach
contaminants into the water. These contaminants include those regulated by the United
States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and Health Canada, as well as any other
non-regulated compounds that may be of concern. NanoH2O said its advanced nano-
technology, which has just been commercially launched, can increase membrane perme-
ability by 50-100% over conventional membranes, while matching best-in-class salt rejec-
tion. Greater permeability translates to increased membrane productivity, decreasing energy
consumption. The QuantumFlux membrane modules are available in an 8-inch diameter

Product Review: Pumps, Mixers & Agitators
The Eversburg sewage treatment plant is designed to serve 250,000
population equivalents and is one of three plants operated by the city
of Osnabrück in northern Germany. But in 2005, its actual load was
closer to 309,000 population equivalents (COD 80 mg/l), pushing the
nitrogen input level above the plant’s capabilities.
To deal with this situation, a team was organised to develop a
process-based alternative to biological elimination of nitrogen. At its
core, the proposal involved the use of existing basins and established
biological process engineering. A feasibility study in the lab led to a
pilot plant. Positive results here were scaled up to operational experi-
ments in small basins. These findings served as the foundation for
implementing a major system to serve 60,000 inhabitants.
Demanding pumping tasks
The pumps moving filtration water into the ni-
trogen elimination plant were a critical aspect
of the concept. The pH of the water ranges
from 11 to 11.5, temperature is approximately
30°C, and conditioning is provided by lime and
Iron III. Originally the plant used centrifugal
pumps, but their mechanical seals calcified,
the pumps leaked and aggressive lime water
penetrated into the motors. As a result, the pumps could stay in service
for only a few weeks at a time.
The plant began using Allweiler peristaltic pumps as an alternative to the
centrifugal pumps from another manufacturer. “The pumps have been
running around the clock without any problems even since,” according
to plant engineer Peter Sikora. The hose material is durable that neither
the lime nor any other component of the filtration water results in any
significant wear.
The peristaltic pumps have been running in a redundant configura-
tion inside a separate pump house since 2008. Before the pump house
was constructed, the first pump ran outdoors for more than a year.
Allweiler peristaltic pumps are designed without a seal and can be
dry-mounted so they are easily accessible at all
times. A frequency converter enables precise
regulation of the pumps and saves energy. Their
capacity has a linear relationship to pump speed
and as a result, volume flow can be controlled
with precision, eliminating the need for addi-
tional volume-monitoring devices. The pumps
operate within a speed range of approximately
20 rpm to up to 35 rpm.

required. Instead the dosed chemicals are introduced at the pipe wall and are
drawn and dispersed into the main flow, resulting in a complete mixing. The
absence of injection lances eliminates blocking, reduces maintenance and
lowers the overall cost of the mixer.
The Statiflo is available in three standard lengths
to cater for very rapid mixing or slow mixing de-
pending on the chemistry of the application. Mix-
ers can be custom designed to suit the available
pressure drop of site hydraulics.
Good mixing is fundamental to achieving the cor-
rect process result and will minimise chemical
usage and in the case of desalination plants can
have a significant impact on overall running costs.

Leak-free mag-drive pumps for
hazardous liquids
Michael Smith Engineers has said the Dickow range of pumps, including
the KM Series, are capable of handling capacities up
to 65 m
3
/hr at heads up to 65 metres.
All KM Series pumps are magnetically coupled, so
they are leak-free by design as there are no mechani-
cal seals. They are available in either horizontal or ver-
tical configuration and a choice of wetted materials
of either cast iron, cast steel and stainless steel. The
vertical configuration option with the motor mounted
on the top eliminates the need for a base plate so is
an ideal choice for where space is limited.
The pumps can handle liquids with viscosities be-
tween 0.1 cP and 200 cP at temperatures between
-30 to +200°C.

High Pressure
RO Multi-stage
Pumps
CLYDEUNION Pumps has introduced
the HPRO (High Pressure Reverse Os-
mosis) product as part of its range of
pumps for desalination facilities covering all stages of the process, from sea-
water pre-treatment to the distribution of produced water.
The HPRO pump is a radially split diffuser multi-stage pump designed to
match the particular requirements of the desalination industry. Design fea-
tures include:
• Minimum through life costs along with maximum reliability in service
• Optimised efficiency levels with hydraulics designed for each specific
project duty
• Self-contained oil lubricated bearings eliminate the requirement and as-
sociated costs for lubricating oil module
• Enhanced efficiency achieved through full radial diffusers, volute dis-
charge and closed clearance composite wear rings.
The company said that the HPRO pump offers customers a modern alter-
native, specifically designed for RO Desalination, to the traditional horizontal
split casing high pressure BB3 product range.

Static mixer for desalination plants
Statiflo has developed a new concept for static mixers to meet the specific
requirements for mixing and blending in the desalination industry. The static
mixer, called the DesalMixer, is a short length insertion type device that pro-
duces a higher mixture quality, which the company said is at a lower pressure
drop than mixers currently available in the market.
This is achieved by mixing elements that produce both division and turbu-
lence of the flow. One very significant benefit is that injection lances are not

Welches Dam pumps replaced in
Cambridgeshire, England
Bedford Pumps has replaced pumps originally installed by W H Allen at
Welches Dam Pumping Station in the Cambridgeshire Fens. The Welches
Dam pumping station, situated on the Old Bedford River, south of Manea,
was constructed in 1948 to provide land drainage in the notoriously flat and
boggy marsh land of the Cambridgeshire fens. Sixty years on maintaining
this obsolete equipment had become prohibitively expensive and the deci-
sion was made to upgrade the station with modern alternatives.
The project, let by the Environment Agency, was awarded to Jackson Civil
Engineering Group, supported
by Halcrow and using Bedford
Pumps as the M&E partner.
The work involved taking the
station out of commission
while all of the existing plant
was removed from the station.
Partners arrived at a pipework
design which used the benefits of siphonic recovery and housed the siphon
loop within the station.

So we can help to improve the water situation for the world in a partnership like the AWWA has with American companies. WWi: And what about help from the international water sector. We received money and financial support but technical support was not received for water. WWi: The JWWA is here in Washington for the American Water Works Association (AWWA) event. so there has been a lot of exchange. they have the expertise in management and overseeing but there are not many of those types of companies in Japan.

In order to foster new people. can you tell us about the rehabilitation programme to replace all existing infrastructure that’s not earthquake proof? YM: So in the area where there was an earthquake. we have 1400 water utilities. we really didn’t predict it to be so bad. The world has a rising need for water and the world as a whole is suffering from a shortage of water. The two worst things and two biggest disasters were the nuclear disaster and the tsunami . The reason the Japanese seem to be behind in exporting expertise out of the country is because the area where they excel is with components. have a lot of technologies which are manufactured at a high level for earthquake response. through their own unique technologies. WWi Enquiry No. but there have also been a lot of small ones. WWI: There are a lot of similarities between the two countries and their water industries.com . with very diverse backgrounds. We did however receive a lot of support for the nuclear disaster. YM: Singapore and Korea have been supplementing their technology and working to raise levels but if you look at it from a Japanese standpoint. The JWWA can achieve this with Japanese companies. This is because the Japanese. So we have a lot of experience and the background in this industry. we want to promote exchanges of information on the staff levels to help bring new people into the industry. technology expertise of Japan’s water sector? YM: Yes. through to water operators as well. There was about 30 minutes between the earthquake and the warning for the tsunami. The quality of what they are doing in Singapore and Korea is very good. but not so much on the technical water side. So. with both enjoying a high water supply rate.

Hence. including effect on metallurgy of mine equipment. the mining industry located in arid regions of South America is looking at strategies to improve water usage. a strong focus on optimisation is crucial to delivering a successful seawater treatment and conveyance project in northern Chile.D. generally there is imbalance between the water quantity and quality distributions. there will be a higher risk of contaminant retention in the system that may have various negative chemical effects. modification of metallurgical chemistry and so forth. please email: RPhilippe@hatch. desalinated seawater supply cost may represent between 3% to 20% of total direct operational costs. the next steps for improvement of mineral processing economics will have to include the integration of water quality and chemistry within the mine site water management plans. The use of direct seawater versus desalinated water is generally a trade off between capital and operating costs.

Regional Spotlight: Latin America
However, combined sewage does in fact occur, either via poor planning or more typically tapping into the run-off infrastructure, or the opposite, storm water discharges into the sewers. Since the runoff water usually discharges into storm drains, river tributaries and rivers, any sewage entering the system automatically has a similar and untreated discharge. A federal secretariat for sanitation, the National Department of Environmental Sanitation (part of the Ministry of the Cities), was created in 2003 to focus on sanitation challenges. Sanitation Plans (federal, state and municipal) were expected by the end of 2010 as requested by the Federal Law 11,445/2007. However, the deadline has been postponed to 2012. Another issue is the weighty federal taxation requirements (since 2003) for various taxes (PIS/COFINS/CSLL/IR). For example, Sabesp paid (in 2009) R$1.26 billion in federal taxes and at the same time invested R$1.83 billion. The challenge for the state company, which has been responsible for approximately 50% of the total Brazilian investment in sanitation, is that this investment is handicapped by taxes corresponding to 70% of its total. Correa and Querios Galvão) have created subsidiaries to operate area concessions for the state and municipal companies.

“The skill set in Brazil is good, but not of sufficient quantity. There is a knowledge and technology gap for sewage treatment in Brazil.”
DEVELOPMENTS
In January 2007, a new water and sanitation bill (Law 11.445/07) was inaugurated in Brazil, outlining relevant federal policy. It was designed to increase investment in the sector and thus access to water and sanitation. The law was largely a compromise and failed to address some key issues and challenges, says the report. At the same time, the Programme for Accelerated Growth (PAC) was announced, channelling R$40 billion to the waste sector between 2007 and 2010. Although meant for broad investment such as sewage treatment, rainwater drainage, solid waste management and water supply, most of it was spent on sewage collection and treatment. PAC 2, which is planned for 2011 to 2014, will invest an additional R$40 billion. Nonetheless, industry estimates indicate that, in 2009, 68% of collected sewage had secondary treatment. Recent research by Atlas Brazil and the National Water Agency (ANA) estimates that R$90 billion needs to be invested between now and 2025 to guarantee satisfactory water and sanitation services. This equates to about R$3.6 billion annual investment in water and sanitation to achieve universal access. Industry experts, however, believe that a far greater investment in sanitation (between R$120 billion and R$270 billion) will be required to provide services to the 53% of the Brazilian population still without sewage treatment. At the current rate of investment, the country will take 60 years to achieve the target.

INDUSTRY STRUCTURE
The sector is fairly concentrated. Each Brazilian state has a water company, a legacy from the 1980s, making 27 state companies in total. These account for 77% of the country’s water and sanitation services. The recognised top six state companies in Brazil (SABESP, SANEPAR, COPASA, CEDAE, CEASB and EMBASA account for almost half of the country’s water and sanitation services). The provision of services is split between municipalities (around 15%) and private companies (18%). The presence of private companies is expanding, albeit gradually. However, some of the state companies have formed joint ventures with private firms, particularly where towns or groups of towns have inadequate services. In many cases, the larger contractors (such as Odebrecht, Galvão, Camargo

CASE STUDY: SÃO PAULO
CETESB monitors developments in São Paulo’s water sector, with a minor role performed by the municipal environmental secretary. There are two large man-made reservoirs to the south of the city - Guarapiranga and Billings. The catchment area for the reservoirs is the hill range to their south and west , as well as the Pinherios River (which now flows from north to south – a flow that was reversed many years ago). There is also a west-to-east water main that allows water from the west into the east reservoir when the water level in Billings is low. Testing has shown there is no backwash of pollution. Currently, the ABCD (Santo Andre, Mauá, Diademaand and Sao Caetano do Sul) regions buy water from Sabesp plants and distribute it locally. The state energy secretariat controls the river flows, including the River Pinheiros. Traditionally, aluminium sulphate, or another such coagulants, is put into the water as part of the treatment as it ionises suspended solids (flocculates) and then enables the solid suspension to be filtered. However, dispersal of the resultant sludge is a problem. There are no non-landfill solutions at present. Instead, much is dispersed into the rivers (and the ocean), as is regularly the case in many other countries. Activated sludge for treating sewage and industrial wastewater using air and a biological floc composed of bacteria and protozoans is used in São Paulo and is becoming increasingly common in Brazil’s other major cities. However, Membrane Bioreactors (MBR) is a growing opportunity. In terms of reputation and perception of technical capability, the UK lags behind the US/Canada (GE), Germany (Koch), Singapore (Hyflux) and Japan (Kubota), since it has no local membrane manufacturer.

CONCLUSIONS
A key driver for demand will be increasing intervention and policy by the federal and state governments. The skill set in Brazil is good, but not of sufficient quantity. There is a perception that there is a knowledge and technology gap for sewage treatment in Brazil. Sewage sludge is expected to be a growing problem in the future as more sewage is collected for primary or advanced treatment. At present, there is insufficient infrastructure or processes to deal with the predicted quantity (let alone current quantities). Brazil’s environment and water sector presents vast opportunities. It is fundamental to understand the market before positioning products and services for market entry. Opportunities are likely to outweigh risks, particularly as business contracts in Brazil are often based on trust and acceptability, thus negating the need for companies to revert to legal instruments to resolve cases of dissent or disagreement.WWi

The fact that monovalent ion rejection with these membranes was also quite high did not matter in this application. ozone is used in an Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP). potentially in combination with granular activated Carbon (GAC). There has been a need for additional water resources in arid areas such as the Middle East for some decades.
