The work is part of required remedial action under the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) efforts to clean up historic contamination in the Silver Valley.

petrochemical complex on the US Gulf Coast. The proposed multibillion dollar investment would include a world-scale ethane steam cracker capable of producing 1.8 million tonnes of ethylene per year. The ethane steam cracker would feed a monoethylene glycol unit and two polyethylene units at the facility. The project is one of 11 that ExxonMobil recently announced as part of its 10-year, US$20 billion Growing the Gulf expansion program (see Pump Industry Analyst, March 2017). With the site selected, ExxonMobil and SABIC will now apply for the necessary air and wastewater permits from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The two companies will make final decisions on the investment after the required permits have been granted.

Emefcy and RWL Water to deploy MABR technology in China


ollowing on from their strategic alliance, Israel’s Emefcy Group Ltd and New York-based RWL Water have announced their first joint project in China (see Pump Industry Analyst, March 2017). Developed in partnership with one of Emefcy’s Chinese distributors, the project involves a multiphase agreement to use the Israeli company’s MABR wastewater treatment technology at a plant in Tianjin which is owned and operated by Tianjin Caring Co. 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 the third quarter of 2017. This paid Phase I MABR “packaged plant” combines Emefcy’s proprietary technology and RWL Water’s engineering and packaging solutions.
