Commencing operations earlier this year, this facility is designed to handle variable bio-treater wastewater. The plant utilises Ecolab’s ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO) membrane system and is almost 100% automated.

With the capacity to treat and reuse up to 24,000m3 of wastewater every month, the facility helps Shell move towards responsible water consumption. According to its senior vice-president and market head of South East Asia Gregory Lukasik, this serves as a demonstration that “sustainability and business performance can be pursued in tandem”.

“By focusing on water at an enterprise level, companies can identify opportunities that meet both their sustainability and business goals,” said Lukasik. “Aligned with Ecolab’s focus on saving 300 billion gallons of water by 2030, we are proud to support our valued customers in promoting responsible water consumption and contributing to Singapore’s sustainable future.”
