Koch Membrane Systems (KMS) will 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 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 is the second time CERI will be using KMS’s TARGA membranes for a wastewater recovery project. The membranes have also been used in China’s heavy industries, such as power, steel, and petrochemicals.

Yingkou Medium Plate Co., Ltd, a professional medium and heavy steel plate manufacturer, is based 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.
