WORLD NEWS WABAG to upgrade WTP in Metro Manila WABAG has been commissioned by Metro Manila to upgrade La Mesa-2, the world’s ninth largest drinking water treatment plant with a capacity of 900,000 m3 /day. WABAG was awarded a contract for the plant retrofit and upgrade with a value of US$ 60 million together with a joint venture partner. The La Mesa-2 Water treatment Plant (WTP) produces 900,000 m3 of water per day and is one of three Metro Manila drinking water plants, which ensure the safe supply of clean water to the megacity. The plant will be refurbished and receive a technical upgrade during continuous operation over the course of the next three years. The Angat River is the largest and most important water source for Metro Manila. The water is stored in reservoirs and then treated in the La Mesa 1 and 2 and Balara plants to make it potable. The plants employ four main treatment steps consisting of coagulation/ flocculation, sedimentation, filtration and disinfection. However, over the years, the technology employed at La Mesa-2 WTP has become outdated and therefore requires refurbishment and modernisation. The new project also foresees additional features such as the handling of high raw water turbidity (2,000 NTU) and a structure capable of withstanding a 7.2 magnitude earthquake. During continuous plant operation, WABAG will convert the existing pre-treatment technology (Pulsator) into modern lamella clarification and single-layer sand filtration will be modified to provide highly effective dual media filtration. The scope of supply includes design and engineering, equipment, installation and commissioning. After completion, which is scheduled for the end of 2020, WABAG will also be responsible for process proving for one year. Founded in 2011, during the past seven years WABAG Philippines has completed a series of national water technology projects, including seven wastewater treatment plants. The La Mesa-2 WTP is the second project in the drinking water treatment field to be obtained following the refurbishment and upgrading of the Putatan WTP with a capacity of 150,000 m3/d using advanced WABAG filtration technology. Furthermore, the company has been commissioned by the Manila Water Company (MWC) to build and run a pilot plant for the Philippines’ first septic waste to energy (WTE) project. The WTE facility, which has already undergone successful testing, utilizes septage or waste materials removed from septic tanks, as a feed source. Coleridge Shelley, the WABAG Philippines CEO said: “We are very happy that our client, Maynilad Water Services Inc., has awarded this ambitious project to WABAG. As a technology leader we were able to provide an individual and optimal technological solution based on our comprehensive, multinational experience and the support of our international team of top technical experts.” AW 4 JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2018 Asian Water

WORLD NEWS Delft University of Technology and Royal HaskoningDHV sign agreement for biopolymer recovery from wastewater Delft University and Royal HaskoningDHV sign MOU Royal HaskoningDHV and Delft University of Technology have signed an agreement stating that patented technologies used to extract valuable Biopolymers from Nereda® wastewater treatment sludge are transferred to Royal HaskoningDHV. This gives the company the worldwide rights to apply these technologies to wastewater treatment installations using Royal HaskoningDHV’s Nereda technology. This technology originated from research at the Delft University of Technology. In addition to its small footprint, energy and cost savings, and phosphate recovery, Nereda technology opens up the opportunity to recover a biopolymer mix produced by the bacteria purifying the wastewater. This new reusable substance can easily be harvested and has the potential to unlock economically interesting applications in the paper and textile industries, in the agricultural sector, but especially in the development of advanced nanocomposite materials. Karel Luyben, Rector Magnificus at Delft University of Technology said that the agreement signed on December 8 included a provision for Royal HaskoningDHV to fund PhD research for the coming ten years. “Furthermore, the company pays for the made patent costs, which will enable the university to hire another PhD researcher, which will open up new fields of research for us,” she explained. René Noppeney, Global Director of Water Technology Products & Innovation at Royal HaskoningDHV said that Royal HaskoningDHV now not only has the patents for the Nereda technology, but also the patents to extract a valuable new raw material from Nereda process excess sludge. Delft University of Technology and Royal HaskoningDHV cooperate in a joint national research and development program together with Foundation for Applied Water Research STOWA, Dutch water authorities, global industrial ecosystem Simadan and ChainCraft biosobased innovators to investigate and develop the recovery and reuse of biopolymers derived from wastewater treatment processes. This development contributes to the further circularization of the economy, and the cost-effective treatment of wastewater. AW Asian Water JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2018 5
