DuPont Water Solutions – Global leader in sustainable separation and purification Technology.


DuPont MemPulse® Membrane Bioreactor System (MBR) and FilmTec™ Reverse Osmosis (RO) technologies have been selected as part of a multi-technology solution for implementation in Singapore’s Tuas Water Reclamation Plant (WRP), which is currently under construction as part of PUB’s Deep Tunnel Sewerage System Phase 2 project. This new facility is planned to commence initial operations in 2026 and is poised to become one of the world’s largest membrane bioreactor (MBR) facilities when fully completed.

“Over the last twenty years, Singapore has been an international trendsetter in water reclamation. NEWater, its third National Tap, has helped to educate people about the benefits of recycled water and how reuse is proving critical to helping the country strengthen its water resilience in the face of climate change,” said Alan Chan, Global Vice President and General Manager, DuPont Water Solutions. “Our MBR and RO products are now set to be at the heart of the pioneering Tuas plant, supporting the sustainable production of NEWater to enhance the sustainability of Singapore’s water supply.”

Once fully operational, the Tuas WRP will have the capacity to treat an average dry weather flow of 650,000m3/day of domestic wastewater using an advanced multi-technology process; MBR and low-fouling RO elements will make it more energy-efficient to further purify the treated wastewater and produce NEWater.

“DuPont has a long-term commitment to Singapore, and we are very proud to see our technology deployed as part of such an internationally significant project,” said Kee Hoe Ng, Project Sales Leader, DuPont Water Solutions. “Our MemPulse® MBR technology is being used across the globe to create stable membrane environments with automated membrane cleaning systems that reduce maintenance requirements and total lifecycle costs.”
