Multimedia Filtration (MMF)


Papua New Guinea


An Oil & Gas operation located in a remote region of Papua New Guinea was experiencing operational issues with their sewage treatment plant. Elevated levels of total suspended solids were observed in the treated effluent due to some waste management changes upstream of the plant. A tertiary media filter was the preferred solution and being such an isolated area, a pre-fabricated / pre-tested plant suited the project requirements very well.

MAK Water was engaged to build a containerised filtration plant that would be installed at the end of the sewage treatment process to ensure compliance with the discharge requirements.
