Norit Airlift MBR Technology on Palm Jumeirah

After the selection of its Seaguard membranes for the pre-treatment of the seawater RO plants, Norit X-Flow is proud to announce that Norit Airlift™ MBR technology will be used on the Palm Jumeirah Island in Dubai as well. Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies Emirates received the contract to upgrade the existing conventional wastewater treatment plant to > 500 % of the original capacity, based on Norit’s MBR technology.

When fully operational, this state-of the-art sewage treatment plant will be the world’s most modern Membrane BioReactor (MBR) plant, situated on the world’s newest landmark Palm Jumeirah, developed by Nakheel.

The average wastewater generated on the crescent of the island is estimated to be 17,000 m3/day. This wastewater will be treated and the effluent will be used either for irrigation, or to serve as influent to polishing plants to produce make-up water for the Crescent’s district cooling system. This sewage treatment plant has a reduced footprint and modular design, which lends itself to expansion as needed.

As regulations become stricter, municipalities and industries are realizing that health, safety, performance and environmental protection should be combined into one optimal solution.
Norit Airlift™ MBR is the ultimate technology for the treatment of wastewater in a clean, safe and reliable environment in a dry setup, with membranes located outside the bioreactor.

X-Flow belongs to Norit ‘leading in purification’ and has expertise in all water areas, from potable water production to treatment of process and wastewater, as well as in the food & beverage and pharmaceutical industries. X-Flow was one of the pioneers introducing ultra filtration for potable water and wastewater re-use applications to the water market. By winning this prestigious contract Norit X-Flow once again proves its prominent position in the market.
