The first phase of the project is based on a proprietary "packaged plant design solution" developed jointly by Emefcy and RWL Water, with an installed capacity of 20,000 litres per day and scheduled for installation in Q3, 2017. This paid Phase I MABR "packaged plant" combines Emefcy's proprietary technology and RWL Water's engineering and packaging solutions. The second phase will be to upgrade one of Tianjin's existing Class 1B centralized waste water aeration basins to the new standard of Class 1A, using Emefcy's proprietary submerged MABR technology. This installation will mark the first use of a submerged derivative of Emefcy's MABR solution for centralized waste water aeration basin. This deployment demonstrates how MABR can be applied to centralized treatment, a new vertical that expands the market opportunity beyond off-grid communities.
Tianjin Caring Company is located in Tianjin and has the primary responsibility for implementing new wastewater treatment technologies and process design for the Tianjin Capital Environmental Protection (
The Emefcy demonstration plant is expected to be installed and begin operation in Q3 2017 with final Tianjin municipal certification expected in Q4 2017.
Tianjin Caring intends to upgrade all of its existing wastewater treatment plants from Class 1B to Class 1A within the next 3 to 4 years. Tianjin views the MABR technology developed by Emefcy and engineered into a turn-key packaged solution by RWL Water as an enabler to meet regulatory requirements for class 1A at the lowest life-cycle cost.
The total addressable market in Tianjin alone is quite large. For example, retrofitting all of the existing municipal wastewater treatment plants would have an estimated contract value in excess of A$100 million. Yet, Tianjin's treatment capacity is less than one half of one percent of the addressable market for the "submerged" MABR solution in all of China.
Richard Irving, Chairman of Emefcy, commented: "We can now demonstrate that Emefcy's MABR value proposition extends beyond rural distributed wastewater systems to large centralized wastewater treatment sites too. This is a potentially enormous market opportunity in China and beyond. We are excited to be working with Tianjin Caring Company to demonstrate the efficacy of Emefcy's next generation, submersible MABR technology in a completely new market vertical. Our alliance with RWL Water brings the ability to offer a unique solution that combines Emefcy's differentiated technology with the proven engineered solution capabilities and the pedigree of the RWL Water team."
Henry Charrabe, CEO of RWL Water stated: "We are excited to leverage our global leadership position in designing packaged water and wastewater treatment solutions in order to assist Emefcy in executing on their strong pipeline of opportunities in China."
