Multimedia Filtration (MMF)
A large sugar manufacturing company undertook construction a $75 million green energy power plant at the Tableland Mill. The power plant will turn 100 per cent renewable sugarcane fibre known as bagasse, into green energy. Once commissioned, it will produce 24 megawatts of electricity – enough to power 26,280 homes – which is the entire population of the Tableland region.
The Reverse Osmosis producing demineralised water for the plants steam boiler was having issues with high levels of iron and manganese in the feedwater that needed to be removed. The sugar manufacturing company engaged MAK Water to deliver a modular solution.
