Largest MBR plants – Worldwide

New contracts are being won all the time, and plants appear to be getting ever larger, but the following list is the latest information we have on the largest MBR plants (over 100 MLD) in the world, including new contracts which have been won but not yet installed. In addition, we aim to reference the largest plants in each of the regions Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceania.

If you are aware of any errors or omissions, please contact us, to help us keep this list up to date. Or if you’d like to supply some reference information for our Installations directory, we’d be pleased to hear from you.
