By Woo Sian Boon, TODAY, 8 Mar 2014
National water agency PUB and Japanese firm Meiden Singapore yesterday jointly opened a S$10.3 million demonstration plant capable of treating and recycling industrial used water, in a bid to recover every drop of water used here.
The plant, which is located at Pioneer Road and has a capacity of 4,550 cubic metres per day, can produce non-potable water that can be used by industries on Jurong Island for the purposes of cooling machinery, for example.
This is in contrast to PUB’s current practice of treating about 86,000 cubic metres of industrial used water per day to internationally accepted standards before discharging it into the sea.
