GE unveils compact, efficient water treatment system
06 July 2011
Industry water use is responsible for nearly twenty percent of all consumption, and the water that comes out is often dirtier than the water that goes in. At Singapore International Water Week (July 4-8) - a global gathering of policymakers, experts and industry leaders - GE unveiled its latest water treatment offering, the LEAP*mbr wastewater treatment system, which will help cut costs and improve flexibility for owners of municipal, industrial and residential wastewater treatment facilities.
Leap*mbr was the result of a four-year innovation effort. Described by the company as a big leap forward from its existing MBR (membrane bioreactor) water treatment technology, the new product offers “low energy” and “advanced performance” like its distant cousin, the LEAP aircraft engine, which saw record-breaking orders at the recent Paris Air Show.
LEAP*mbr reduces energy costs by a minimum of thirty percent over existing GE MBR products, boosts capacity by fifteen percent and significantly cuts the physical footprint required for the equipment.
