NX Filtration supplies largest Chinese coffee chain Luckin’s water treatment plant

Provider of advanced water filtration membrane solutions NX Filtration has supplied its hollow fibre nanofiltration (NF) membrane modules to the Luckin Coffee water treatment project together with its original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partner Suzhou MOPU. The advanced membrane system addresses the unique water filtration needs of Luckin Kunshan’s bakery plant in Kunshan, Jiangsu province, China.

Luckin Coffee, a coffee chain shop in China with over 10,000 sub-branches nationwide, operates a bakery plant in Kunshan for delivery to Luckin Coffee sub-branches. A requirement in the production process is the use of high-quality water with a total dissolved solids (TDS) level of around 20.

A unique ambition of the Kunshan bakery plant is to treat its wastewater stream well, and NX Filtration was awarded this project due to the advantage of its sustainable NF membrane technology, which eliminates the need for chemical dosing in the water treatment process, whilst maintaining healthy minerals in the water.

Shaohua Hu, country manager of China NX Filtration said, “Our filtration solutions not only meet the technical requirements but also align with the values of environmental responsibility and sustainability. We look forward to continuing our partnership and [addressing] broader water challenges in the group.”
