Converting wastewater to clean water and energy – IChemE Water Award Winner 2019

In Singapore resource is quite constrained, so with this in mind Jacobs Engineering and the Singapore Public Utilities Board developed an ingenious idea by creating a membrane bioreactor to recover wastewater, reclaiming this vital resource for future use.

Winning the IChemE Global Awards 2019 in the Water Award category, their project Tuas Nexus and Tuas WRP, managed to combine the elements of wastewater and fully recover this back into drinking-grade water. Not only that, the project has managed to simultaneously implement a circular economy by creating an energy recovery process, all-in-all providing a sustainable outcome.

Here are Chew Chee Keong and Colin Newbury talking about the project in more detail:

Have you been working on an impressive water project you’d like to shout about? Then why not enter the IChemE Global Awards 2020.
