Lewabrane elements for water treatment at power plant in Chemnitz

First large-scale use of LANXESS’ membrane technology in Europe

For the first time in Europe, LANXESS’ fouling-resistant membrane technology is being used on a large scale at the Dammweg thermal power station in Chemnitz, Germany. A set of 60 Lewabrane RO B400 FR filter elements apply a reverse osmosis process to cleanse 50 to 60 cubic meters of pre-treated river water per hour for steam generation purposes. Dr. Jens Lipnizki, head of Technical Marketing Membranes in the Liquid Purification Technologies business unit at LANXESS, explains that “the 90 percent reduction in the organic contamination of river water demanded by the operator of the power plant can be easily achieved using our membrane technology.”
