Singapore’s breakthrough NEWater technology produces 33 percent of water used at our manufacturing facility

Singapore’s NEWater treatment and storage facility produces high-grade reclaimed water using advanced membrane technologies and ultra-violet disinfection. It is ultra-clean and safe to drink. Thirty-three percent of all water used at our Singapore manufacturing plant is from the Public Utility Board’s NEWater treatment and delivery systems. Currently, Singapore’s five NEWater plants can now meet up to 40 percent of the country’s water needs. By 2060, NEWater is expected to meet up to 55 percent of Singapore’s future water demand. Edwards is proud to be able to utilize this breakthrough and effective technology at its Singapore manufacturing plant.
