Reclaimed Water Advanced Treatment for Shouyangshan Power Plant (2×600MW)
A SafBon advanced lime technology project in reclaimed water treatment processing has been running steadily for over 10 years.

China resources group required a reclaimed water treatment system for the Henan Shouyangshan (2 x 600 MW) power plant. The effluent from Luoyang sewage treatment plant is treated by this system. The treated water is reused as circulating cooling water and boiler make-up water. And the produced sludge can be directly used for the desulfurization process in the power plant.

A lime technology is utilized in this project, including automated powdered lime storage, metering and preparation system. The milk lime is fed into the specially designed clarifier. This technology solves the issues, such as hopper rat-holing, arching and bridging of the lime system to achieve a dust-free process.

Gravity Sand Filter


  • Stable and reliable

    The facilities have been running steadily and the effluent has always met the requirements for over 10 years.

  • Low environmental impacts

    The application of SafBon lime technology has resulted in dust-free conditions.

  • Energy-saving emissions, hence energy reduction and progress towards a circular economy

    The effluent water quality can be used for circulating, cooling and boiler make-up, thus reducing the total water consumption; the CaCO3 contained sludge can be used for desulfurization and it reduces the chemical consumption. In summary, the process saves 8 million yuan/year of operating costs for the Shouyangshan power plant.

SafBon offered 30 sets of successful references for milk lime reclaimed water reuse projects.

Tough Alcohol Wastewater Treatment Pilot Testing in Guangxi
Developing a pilot for investigating alcohol wastewater treatment.

In the pilot experiment, it is mainly investigated how hydraulic retention time (HRT) influences the wastewater treatment performances with the control variable method when the influent comes from cassava alcohol plant. This is the hash and tough wastewater. With a determined HRT and a variable SRT, the optimized removal efficiency (sludge retention time (SRT) = 30 d) is observed. With these optimum HRT and SRT condition, two different activated sludge concentrations was investigated to compare the effect factors of wastewater treatment. In the end of this experiment, the optimum condition of cassava alcohol wastewater treatment with anoxic/oxic/anoxic/oxic (AO/AO) - membrane bio-reactor (MBR) combination process was observed.


  • Capability: 0.16 m3/d

  • Technology: AO/AO-MBR combination process
