KMS to Install New Wastewater Recycling System in China
Published Date: November 28, 2011
Koch Membrane Systems, Inc. (KMS) has been selected to supply membranes for a large-scale wastewater recycling system for Yingkou Medium Plate Co., Ltd., in Yingkou City, Liaoning Province, China.

The project will recycle the plant’s wastewater to meet strict government discharge regulations and to conserve the region’s fresh water supply.

KMS will supply 832 TARGA® 10-inch cartridges as well as the necessary engineering support for the Yingkou project, working in cooperation with Capital Engineering & Research Incorporation Ltd. (CERI), the engineering firm responsible for designing and building the system. The system is designed to handle an annual average flow of 80,000 m3/d. Start-up is scheduled for early 2012.

“This will be our second time using KMS TARGA UF membranes for a wastewater recovery project,” says Mr. Yang Gaofeng, Vice General Manager of CERI and project manager for the Yingkou system. “I am very confident of the success of this project based on our past experience.”

KMS’ TARGA membranes have been widely used in China’s heavy industries such as power, steel, and petrochemicals because they offer a cost-effective, safe, high-quality water solution for a variety of ultrafiltration applications ranging from surface water treatment to wastewater recovery.

Yingkou Medium Plate Co., Ltd, a professional medium and heavy steel plate manufacturer, is a key enterprise in Liaoning Province. The company processes 1.5 million tons of steel plates annually and maintains operations in iron-casting, continuous casting, milling, oxygen abstracting, and power generation.
