Spanish poultry processing firm upgrades its wastewater treatment plant with GE LEAPmbr MBR technology

18 April 2013


 

GE has announced the commissioning of its high-performance LEAPmbr membrane bioreactor technology at a wastewater treatment plant owned by the Spanish poultry processing firm, Procavi S.L.. The LEAPmbr technology will help Procavi improve water quality and double its water treatment capacity without expanding the existing facility. This is the first industrial LEAPmbr installation in Spain.

Wastewater discharge regulations and water quality standards, along with an increase in factory production, led Procavi to expand its existing wastewater treatment plant. GE’s technology allowed Procavi to increase its water treatment capacity while staying within the same footprint, accommodating an increase in production without expanding the facility. The previous wastewater treatment plant was producing 600 m3/day, while today it can process twice that amount.

GE provided the technology to Agua, Energia y Medio Ambiente, Servicios Integrales, S.L. (AEMA), the Spanish engineering, procurement and construction company that is operating the newly expanded wastewater treatment plant for Procavi.

The new capacity of the upgraded WWTP is equivalent to the daily water use of roughly 6,000 people. Once treated, the water will be reused for washing within the production facility and for irrigation. The Procavi wastewater treatment plant is an upgrade of an existing facility, located in the province of Seville, in southern Spain. The water discharged from the facility will released into the Corbones River, a tributary of Guadalquivir.
