The use of PAC is combined with the membrane ultrafiltration in order to enhance organic matter removal and to target micro pollutants. To improve the PAC efficiency, optimise the PAC dosing rate and reduce the water loss, the UF backwash waste water will be recycled upstream the UCR.

Shanghai Luojing will be the first municipal ultrafiltration plant in mainland China, as by 2010 Shanghai will be the first city to implement the new standards for drinking water, with 105 parameters against 30 currently.

This contract is a great success for both Degremont and Degremont Technologies in China. Last year, Degremont China and Aquasource had already been successfull together for the supply of the first "China Made" UF skid in Taishan Power Plant (see Horizons 04/2007).

With this new contract in Shanghai, and after the signature last year of Macao MSR drinking water plant with Zenon Membranes, Degremont China is confirming its success in implementing advanced UF technologies in China.
