Capacity increase of 15% to 20%

Fluence Corporation Ltd (ASX:FLC) has won a contract to upgrade the Mayan Zvi centralized wastewater treatment plant owned by Israeli water utility company Mayanot Ha-Amakim.

The company will upgrade Mayanot’s wastewater treatment plant with its SUBRE technology.

Fluence’s SUBRE technology will enable compliance with tighter nitrogen discharge rules without the use of any hazardous chemicals and can also increase the plant’s capacity.

SUBRE has been designed by the company as its next generation technology suitable for installation at larger and centralised traditional treatment plants.

Many of the existing municipal wastewater treatment plants use methanol to meet the tighter nitrogen discharge rules.

However, methanol is a hazardous, toxic and flammable liquid and can potentially make site permission complex and lengthy, while adding to the cost.

Fluence’s new technology SUBRE avoids these barriers while meeting with the strict discharge requirements.

Mayanot’s wastewater treatment plant was built in 2007 and has two treatment lines in parallel.

These lines have been designed to treat 6000 cubic metres of wastewater per day.

With the upgrade to SUBRE technology, the new plant can increase its capacity between 15 to 20%.

Fluence anticipates that SUBRE technology can offer a significant opportunity for the company as there are thousands of plants around the world which require upgrades.

The average cost of a full upgrade could be around $4-5 million per plant.
