Norit to supply largest UF wastewater reuse plant

Keppel Seghers has ordered Norit XIGA™ ultrafiltration (UF) membrane technology for the Doha North Sewage Works wastewater reuse project in Qatar, supplier Norit X-Flow announced on 24 April 2009.

When commissioned in August 2010, the project, with a designed UF permeate capacity of 439,000 m³/d, will be the largest UF-based wastewater reuse project in the world.

The new facility will produce high quality reclaimed water for reuse, meeting the 4-log virus-removal level, which meets the highest public safety standard. The plant features an advanced biological treatment process as well as a combination of UF and ultraviolet technologies. Norit standardized UF skids will also be used.
