To ensure consistent production of pure water, a new grade of water was created. NEWater is the brand name given to the reclaimed water produced by Singapore’s Public Utilities Board (PUB). Together with PUB, Siemens created a sustainable water resource management solution which benefits industries and communities alike. The process consists of membrane pre-treatment, reverse osmosis and UV light disinfection to produce high quality drinking water. Using the Siemens Memcor Membrane technology for the pre-treatment process, the plant now produces over 80000 m3 of NEWater per day.
