ItN Membrane Contract Successfully Signed with China Coal Group for MBR Project

May 7th, 2018

Recently, SafBon has signed with China Coal Group Ordos Energy Chemical Co., Ltd. to apply German ItN nano coating ceramic flat membrane to its coal-to-methanol chemical wastewater treatment project, with the capacity of 9000m3/d, after multi-disciplinary approach made by technical experts of China Coal Group. It is expected that the installation, commissioning and steady operation of the MBR project will be completed by the end of this year.

ItN ceramic ultrafiltration(UF) membrane has the advantages of high flux, excellent anti-fouling, low energy consumption, long lifetime, small footprint, automatic system control, easy installation and operation, which makes it particularly suitable for the treatment of industrial waste water such as coal chemical wastewater. 


This is the expansion and optimization design project of China Coal Eenergy, which requires that the existing water treatment facilities do not increase land occupation, while the water treatment capacity and effluent quality requirement of the second phase of 1 million tons of methanol project are doubled. Since the first contact in the end of last year, China Coal Eenergy has been attracted by ItN Ceramic UF Membrane’s unique advantages, such as high throughput, high water quality, long service life of up to 25 years, and in-situ chemical cleaning (no lifting required). After four months of technical exchange and expert demonstration process, SafBon and China Coal Energy have reached an agreement and it is expected that the installation, commissioning and stable operation phases of MBR membrane units will be completed before the end of this year.


Coal chemical wastewater is one of industrial refractory wastewaters. It has characteristics such as complex types of pollution, high concentration, hard biodegradability, and large fluctuations in raw water quality. Membrane treatment processes cannot normally run smoothly without proper system design and membrane product selection. The expanded biochemical unit adopts its patented EBA combination process. The MBR unit adopts German ItN nano-plate ceramic membrane. The process can be described as a combination of advanced technologies, and it provides stable and low-cost operation for China Coal Energy.


The implementation of this project will fully demonstrate the application advantages of ItN ceramic membrane and create a new era of ceramic MBR membrane in the coal chemical wastewater and similar refractory industrial wastewater treatment fields, providing new impetus for China's environmental improvement. 

The 50,000t/d Desalination Project Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony was Held in Kazakh

May 2rd, 2018


On May 1st 2018, the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the 50,000t/d sea water desalination project which contracted to Safbon was successfully held in Aktau, the famous oil city of Kazakhstan. Experts of technology, construction and operation management of Safbon leading by the president Mr. Zhang Chunlin attended the event were warmly welcomed by the state governor Mr. Tugzhanov, the Mayor of Kuryk town Mr. Bekov, also the residents and the medias of Mangistauskaya Oblast. 


Governor Tugzhanov expressed his vision in his speech: It is his dream to use clean water for the locals, which is also a urgent realistic issue that is eager to be solved. This plays an important role in promoting local economic development. This desalination project of SafBon will alleviate the serious water problem in the Aktau region and also bring a gospel to the local community.


Chairman Hilling Zhang believes that the governor and his people’s choice of Safbon as a collaborator of this great seawater desalination project is an extremely correct decision. Although Safbon is headquartered in Shanghai, he has 25% of employees working in Europe and the United States. He has a global team of experts who can provide “green seawater desalination technology”, making the project an environmentally friendly project, ensuring that no pollutants are emitted to the Caspian Sea, and building the project into a model of low-carbon seawater desalination projects.


After the completion of this project, it is believed that the serious drinking water problem in Aktau would be effectively alleviated, the living quality of Aktau residents would be greatly improved, the development of local economy would be promoted.



After the grand ribbon-cutting ceremony, the governor and the local squire warmly welcomed Chairman Zhang Chunlin and his entourage in the beautiful Mongolian yurts. He expressed his blessings on the National Day of Unity in Kazakhstan and congratulated on the prosperity of the Manggis State of more than 100 ethnic groups. Peace, people's health and longevity.


The local television station asked in the interview why Safbon chose Aktau? Zhang Chunlin, chairman of the company, answered in a straightforward manner that Aktau is equivalent to Dongying in Kazakhstan (where Shengli Oil Field is located). Both cities are oil cities. They all built cities in the 1950s because of oil. Safbon provided Dongying City with a drinking water project that met the European standards six or seven years ago. Local residents can open the tap and safely drink safe water.


The settlement of this world-class advanced desalination project in Kuryk Town will continuously deliver healthy and qualified purified water to local residents and industrial users, which will greatly alleviate the water shortage problem. Safbon is making its own contribution abroad with advanced Chinese technology under the guidance of The Belt and Road policy

ItN CFM Will Make A Break on the19th IEexp in Shanghai

Safbon has been invited to the 19th IEexp, the biggest environmental protection exhibition in Asia (May 3~5, 2018). Safbon will unveiling the latest and most advanced technology of MBR membrane bioreactor and Ceramic Flat Ultrafiltration Membrane (CFM) which was developed by SafBon subsidiary ItN Nanovation, stood the test of time for 18 years. All the customers are warmly welcome. 

Our stand: Hall E1, Booth 1040.

ItN Nanovation AG based in Saarbruecken, Germany, is one of the leading nanotechnology companies in the world who has developed an extremely effective Ceramic Flat Ultrafiltration Membrane (CFM) for water filtration. ItN has 18 invention patents and 69 utility model patents. The CFM has special advantages, such as high flux, low energy consumption, resistance to extreme conditions (e.g. strong acidity, strong alkalinity, strong oxidizing, high temperature, etc.). Because of this, CFM has long service life, low operating costs, and easy maintenance. So, it has unique application in the fields of groundwater radioactive elements, removal of heavy metal elements, municipal water ultrafiltration, municipal sewage MBR, seawater desalination, high temperature refractory wastewater treatment, mineral wastewater, oil field wastewater, refinery wastewater, steel mill wastewater, papermaking wastewater and other fields.


Compared with polymer membranes, ItN ceramic flat membranes have 3-5 times longer service life, 3-10 times higher membrane flux, 50% less chemical consumption, and 50% reduction in operation and maintenance costs and energy consumption. The ceramic membrane can adapt to a wide range of temperatures, the minimum temperature is below 5°C, and the maximum temperature can reach 90°C. Compared with polymer ultrafiltration membranes that break easily under low temperature and high temperature, it has considerable advantages. Membrane fouling is an unavoidable problem, and ceramic membranes have better resistance to contamination.


Just one year after the promotion in China, German ItN ceramic membrane has been widely recognized and established in the coal chemical industry, mine water, steel, municipal, desalination, petrochemical oilfields and other industries. As the future technology leading the development of ultrafiltration, Germany's ItN will continue to advance, and will introduce other membrane separation and advanced technologies including tubular ceramic membranes, which will contribute to the progress of environmental protection in China.



         —— the smooth convocation of the management meeting of the vice presidents of SafBon Water Service

Before you become a leader, the whole of success is self-growth. When you become a leader, success becomes a help for others to grow.                                                              

                                                                                                  -- Jack Welch

Spring is approaching. SafBon Water Service held the management meeting of the vice presidents of the group from 27th to 28th in Mar. Unified leadership has always been this enterprise’s management philosophy, and the whole company has the same voice-- ONE VOICE ONE LANGUAGE. Each VP works tightly around the president of Zhang Chunlin. Nowadays, a total of 12 VPs, 1 CEO, and 5 overseas CEOs managing 5 major business sectors of SafBon Water Service plus operation and supply chain and the departments of finance, investment and market make up a large organization. Under the organizational structure of SafBon, we require every senior executive to take charge, aware of the fact that everybody has the duty of transmitting and carrying out the meaning of the company’s decisions and strategies, and nobody shall stand by. Meanwhile, it is demanded that with the strategy of the group company all take actions quickly, accomplish quickly, coordinate inside the organization quickly, communicate with each other quickly, and take active part in your own work and thinking, thus take good control of the work in your charge!

At the meeting the chairman made a speech with the theme of We SafBon, whose summary is shown below:

The culture of SafBon Water Service: transparency, share and data driven. It is required all the staff sign a pledge solemnly. Whoever violates this principle will be demanded to depart firmly! A CEO should be the one who has foresight, vision and global insight and the one who is broad-minded and grafts Chinese power with global resources. Every senior executive needs to have a positive attitude, get out of comfortable zone and face challenges actively! Senior executives are supposed to have sight of the big picture, have a clear judgment on the uncertainty of the future and be prepared to deal with changes at any time.

Our corporation must use one language and a consistent style of writing and expression should be used in all the parts from project negotiation, marketing activity, technical exchange, delivery process, bank credit to websites of the company and propaganda on LinkedIn, etc.

The management and efficiency of all sub-companies need to be improved, just like what the West Point CATCH 22 "22 rules" said: each CEO of sub-companies should unconditionally obey the command of headquarters, which is a basic discipline. We need to reduce ineffective communication. Each CEO of subsidiary’s work report template needs to be detailed, and each contract should be reported individually and separately, adhere to the principle: any action delay means loss, efficiency means money. We have to establish a mechanism for mutual learning and communication. The cross meeting between the headquarters and the subsidiaries and among the subsidiaries will become normal in the future. All subsidiaries need to adjust their talent structure. People who have engineering education background are what we expect. In order to highlight the characteristics of a water treatment company, it is reasonable that the ratio of process engineers reaches 50%.

At the meeting the 12 vice presidents shared what they have learned from work and their respective management philosophy, and all agreed each vice president and CEO is result oriented, and pursues results with a strong executive power, with the financial index as a guide, stable talent structure as the concept of development, long-term and sustainable planning of the organization as the basic requirements. In the future, we will establish three centers in Shanghai headquarter: a design center, a procurement center and an accounting center, while overseas subsidiaries' work content is to gain market orders and carry them out, so as to generate higher profits for headquarters. The product manual of the flat ceramic ultrafiltration membrane and air floatation equipment will be published in the second half of the year gradually to ensure that customers can calculate and choose the equipment on their own. In order to prevent problems in the installation and commissioning stage, the company's operation department should be involved in the preliminary design and audit process of construction drawings in advance. Designers should listen to the opinions of the operation units and modify the design plan. At the same time, the group will choose a plant as a training base for SafBon Water Service, and prepare training materials and teams with SafBon features, which will become the "Communist Party of SafBon". As for the building site, architectural appearance of operating water plant, clothing, logo and so on, we will have the visualization system reform, highlighting the characteristics of SafBon.

We are expecting SafBon Water Service to grow sturdily and become the best among China's environmental water enterprises and further promote the innovation and development of the industry!

A New Footprint in Seawater Desalination Area

Last year, SafBon Water participated in the bidding for a 50,000m3/day seawater desalination project in Kuryk village, Mangistau Region, Kazakhstan.


On March 13th, Alex Wang, CEO of SafBon Water, along with a technical team of process, electrical and civil engineering from SafBon, visited Aktau City, Kazakhstan, investigated the site of the project and carried out meetings with the local government and consulting company with consensus reached.


As the only company which passed the rigorous review of prequalification, SafBon was formally announced as the successful bidder for the project by the Mangistau Region Government on March 15th 2018. The main process is Dissolved Air Floatation + Nano-ceramic Flat Ultrafiltration Membrane + Two-stage Reverse Osmosis. The project will apply DAF from KWI Austria and CFM from ItN.

With the completion of this project, the current state of limited water supply will be greatly eased, and the economic development of the area and the surrounding towns and cities will be promoted.


On March 1st, the SafBon Chairman, Hilling Chang, visited Peru's capital city Lima for a four-days’ business trip with Alexander who is the international market manager of the SafBon. Two business visits have been made for Ministry Of Housing, Construction and Sanitation, and discussed water conservation planning and cooperation between the two countries over the next 3-5 year. At the same time, the group Chairman has close contacts with the leaders of the large state-owned Chinese state-owned enterprises and partners to develop new projects, such as water supply plants, desalination plants and sewage treatment plants and so on. In the initial stage of the project, technical and technical solutions are provided through technical exchanges and technical solutions, and the technical and technological routes of our group are implanted into these projects to allow the owners to accept us and make us in the predominance of future tenders.


The third stop for Mr. Hilling is Chile's capital Santiago, which is arranged by SWT CEO Chris C. We have carried out extensive contact with the chairman and CEO and others of the board of directors of a local professional water treatment company, and exchanges on projects to be invested by Chile in the next 3-5 years, such as seawater desalination, sewage treatment plants and mineral wastewater treatment plants. Since the company has offices in Chile, Peru and Columbia, a mature network system has been established in market development. How does the SafBon group develop the market and develop together with such partners? This is a challenging topic for management. We need everyone's advice to make our market solid.


A month ago, two water engineering experts from the AYA company of Costa Rico spent a week in SafBon, Shanghai, inspected its sewage treatment plants, sludge drying treatment plants, water plants and other projects. They spoke highly of SafBon’s construction ability, capability and management ability in the large engineering construction project.

How much knowledge you have about South America? Chile is about 4500 kilometers from north to south, and is close to the Pacific Ocean. The distance between the north and the south of Peru is 3254 kilometers, which is also close to the Pacific Ocean. The two countries add up to a magnificent coastline, plus Costa Rica, and hold a panoramic view of a long coastline in South America.

A Visit of Chinese Paper Industry Experts to KWI, Europe

Jan. 2018, SafBon invited several experts of China's papermaking industry to visit its European subsidiaries, including KWI France and KWI Austrian factories. During this visit, they were arranged to visit the paper mill of Kimberly Clark Corporation in NANCY. An MCH 80 type high efficiency air flotation equipment was installed in this factory in 2008. It was developed independently by KWI. As an equipment, which integrating advanced air flotation technologies, has a removal rate of 20-25% higher than that of KWI's competitors and covers only 1/5 of the traditional air floatation devices . This equipment has a processing capacity of 1000m3/h and its SS in effluent is less than 10mg/L. It is mainly used to treat the wastewater, which is called white water, in papermaking process.


The air flotation device has been used in Kimberly Clark, Nancy, France for over 20 years

The owner introduced that the equipment had been running stably with no spare parts damaged or replaced for over 20 years since it was put into operation. The SS in the treated white water can always meet the requirements of the ultra-clear white water standard. And it can be used as spray water in the papermaking process. With this recycle water, it is estimated that 3 to 3.5 tons of clean water will be saved per ton of paper. The air flotation surface sludge layer has a uniform thickness and the sludge concentration reaches 5%.

Kimberly Clark Corporation is a global leader in health care field. It has established plants in 35 countries around the world with an annual production value of US$18 billion. KWI mainly provides air floatation technology for such high-end customers in the paper industry to solve the problems of fiber recycling and wastewater treatment.

KWI Only Focused on One Single Research for 70 Years

Senior executives of the Safbon water service continued their third stop on the New Year's survey, looking at the KWI factory in Klagenfurt, Austria. This is a distinctive subsidiary of the Safbon water service, which mainly produces twelve different types of air floatation device. Founded in 1949, the company has been working on the development and innovation of air floatation technology for nearly 70 years, and has been leading the development of the world air floatation technology. As the inventor and originator of the gas flotation technology, KWI has been able to achieve the ultimate in the traditional air flotation technology in the past 70 years, and can distribute the bubbles of 1 micron evenly in the water, which can serve as the purpose of solid-liquid separation. For example, the current domestic popular shallow air flotation, slanted board air flotation and deep air flotation are the first of KWI. The company is known as the Rolls-Royce in the air flotation device.


ADR Dissolved Air Reactor, The Third Generation of Dissolved Gas Technology

(Which Can Reach 100% Gas Dissolved Saturation in A Very Short Time)

Located in southern Austria, Klagenfurt is a typical border city about 60 kilometers from Italy and 30 kilometers from Slovenia. As Klagenford takes control of several important passes in the Alps, history was filled with soldiers, such as Napoleon's French army. Klagenford is a city surrounded by mountains and rivers, and the famous Worthersee lake has added inspiration to the ancient city. The Baroque and Renaissance architecture allowed Klagenford to continue to attract visitors from all over the world.


The picture shows the KWI Austrian factory.

The KWI factory was built along the river. A group of technical experts in the innovation and development of air floatation technology are gathered here. They only do one thing in their life, and they have achieved the status and height that no one can surpass in the technical field.


The KWI Technical Experts

Another feature of the KWI factory is the generation of factory workers. They handed the craft down from generation to generation. Such handicraft, craftsmanship cannot be duplicated. Under the guidance of such enterprise spirit, the spirit of craftsman needs to be studied and analyzed deeply.


The Chairman of Safbon with The KWI Staff

The survey was the first in-depth investigation since KWI was acquired by Safbon water service. Our team building, brand positioning, marketing strategy, business model and new product development and innovation technology have been discussed and deployed. Such communication and exchanges will bring new impetus and opportunities to the enterprise development in the future, at the same time, it pointed out the direction. We are delighted to see a new generation KWI management is ripe, and full of vitality and creativity.


KWI New Generation Managers are Developing the Corporate Strategies.

The 19th congress of the communist party of CPC was held successfully, indicating that the strategic policy is to adjust the rapid development of the economy to high quality development. We have introduced the high-end brand of KWI to the Chinese market, which is undoubtedly a demonstration of the new era features, which will effectively promote the benign development of our environmental protection equipment manufacturing industry. Environmental protection equipment manufacturing is the root of our environmental protection and is the cornerstone of China's environmental protection industry. Under the conditions of increasing environmental protection, the virtuous cycle of environmental protection has begun.The company has already started to ask the high quality and high technology content of environmental protection products in the aspect of environmental protection. We believe that this is an opportunity and a challenge for Safbon water service.


One of The Flotation Quality Indicators is Whether the Surface of The Air Floatation is Smooth.

A Successful Finalizing in the Investigation of ItN, Germany

The second destination of the New Year research team, led by Mr.Hilling Chang, chairman of Safbon Water, came to Saarbrucken, an ancient city on the banks of the Saar River in south-western Germany. Here they visited the SafBon subsidiary, ItN Nanovation AG, who is specialized in CFM (Ceramic Flat Membrane) technology.


Saarbrucken is a rare mid-range border city which is located on the Saar River in southwestern Germany. It is bordering France and only an hour's drive to Luxembourg. ItN company only one kilometer from the French border. Here you can enjoy the French cuisine, and appreciate the Gothic architecture. Historically, here is not only the battleground of the military, but also the coal, steel town. Thus, during the Second World War, this city was suffered heavily.


Karl Marx's Former Residence

During the journey, the group also visited Trier, where is the hometown of the great the communist Karl Marx. Trier is one of the oldest cities in Germany and was famous since Roman Empire period. It has a history of more than 2,000 years and breeds many historical celebrities. 2018 is the anniversary of Marx’s 200th birthday, his former residence will be renovated and permanently opened to the public.


A Working Meeting the Research Group Attended with the ItN International Technician

The research team first listened to the reports from teams in the Middle East, South Africa, Europe and North Africa and found that ItN's visibility and brand influence continued to increase through last year's marketing. As an innovative technology, the ItN nano-flat ceramic film (CFM) has been ranked as the first peer in the industry by the international authority, GWI. ItN will continue to invest more in R & D this year, in collaboration with the ItN team in China, work more closely in order to make progress in MBR, ultrafiltration, seawater desalination, WTP, HTF products and industrial wastewater treatment to meet market needs in various countries around the world. For example, the cooperation with the ItN team in China will contributes greatly in solving the problems that China is faced, including heavy metals pollution, nuclear radioactive elements pollution at some area, and the substandard water discharging in water treatment plants (WTPs) and wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Nowadays, a virtuous circle that started to emerge in China when the process upgrading is required in the most WTPs and WWTPs and the new supervision of environmental protection in papermaking, steel and electric power industries is continuously increasing. Under such environment-oriented situation, some well-profited companies start to take the initiative to carry out environmental management. We believe that ItN's ceramic membrane has entered a new era and will play an important role in the next five-year plan of Safbon Group.


The MBBR Container

Before the research team leaving ItN, the General Manager Mr. Koch was delighted to tell them that a large ItN container was just transported from the factory on the same day. The container was transported though Eurasian railway and would arrive SafBon, Shanghai within ten days. This container is loaded with years of MBBR technology R & D results from ItN. As a major product from SafBon R & D technical team, this device will be installed in Liantang wastewater treatment plant in Qingpu district. Based on the research and development of ceramic membrane bioreactor (MBBR), we believe that the installation of this advanced technology in Shanghai will effectively push China to make new breakthroughs in wastewater treatment plant upgrading.


Hilling Chang with ItN Group

During the investigation, Chairman Zhang Chunlin learned that there have been two Chinese students who have worked for ItN German companies, and are particularly pleased. Baan Water's overseas subsidiary will become a training base for international students so that the meaning of overseas mergers and acquisitions began to gradually come to light. A platform and a group of talented people, which is in line with the plan of cultivating 100 leaders of young talents at the beginning of last year put forward by Bawan Water. Baan Water's globalization plan, starting from this year will enter the crucial stage, we wait and see Pemba Water mergers and acquisitions of six half-Western high-tech companies will bring to the parent company what kind of far-reaching impact.

A Great Success in the Investigation of KWI, French

At the very begging of 2018, Mr. Hilling Chang, the chairman of Safbon and his team visit the beautiful small town Chambery on the foot of the Alps where KWI France, subsidiary of Safbon located, surrounding by hills and besides the largest natural freshwater lake Le Bourget. After being briefed on the market layout, technology positioning, talent strategy topic speeches made by French colleagues, Mr. Hilling Chang offered his remarkable new year speech on the internationalization strategy and and market layout of Safbon group also the opportunities and challenges we are facing.


Chambery, France


Hilling Change with the KWI French Group

In this visit, we helped French colleagues to clarify their work concept and content. We also made them realize that SafBon will not over-controll their oversea team which may make them facing an under-developed adverse conditions. SafBon have already achieved the agreements with KWI General Manager Denis after we acquired the KWI flotation technology company of France. It’s important for us to face the future and give full play to our mature DAF technology advantages to open up the markets in North Africa and Eastern Europe and reach our common goal. This inspiring development of market potential will stimulate the enthusiasm of all employees in KWI France. By taking the advantages of the strong technical engineering team in the other SafBon subsidiaries, such as ITN, Germany Ceramic Membrane Company and SWT, American, and the strong influence of SafBon headquarters, etc., we have faith that KWI France company will create a greater success in 2018.


KWI Staff and the Device

During the visiting, KWI led SafBon headquarters team to a wastewater treatment plant of GALDERMA, a famous pharmaceutical giant. This is an EPC turnkey project which designed, constructed and commissioned by KWI France team. Denis, the general manager of KWI France, is quite proud of this project. It took only six months from starting to complete. Besides, it achieves the ultimate not only in ventilation and deodorization, sludge treatment, human-machine automatic control screen, but also in floor and outdoor temperature cooling devices. They used their core technology, DAF, as the core of the process, extending to engineering design and project general contracting. This is the successful business model belongs to KWI French company! And it is also a valuable technical service and extension. Denis told chairman Hilling Chang, they made quite huge profits with it! This model has been promoted to the abattoir, food, beverage and printing and dyeing, electroplating and cosmetics and other fields of wastewater treatment. As a small and nice core technology + service combination, this model is of great commercial significance! The chairman is highly admired to Denis, who has excellence entrepreneurial spirit and French craftsmanship. These spirits is worth to be promoted to SafBon headquarters, Shanghai. It can contributes greatly to establishing a superior management system in SafBon headquarters and improving the general company image. The wastewater treatment project in Chambéry region has become the Galderma Group's best case in the world!
