Bedok NEWater Plant is Singapore’s first NEWater plant and it marked Hyflux’s entry into the municipal water treatment market. The project also featured the first large-scale use of membranes in a municipal project in Singapore.

Hyflux supplied the process equipment for the plant, which uses ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis processes as well as ultraviolet disinfection to treat secondary effluent, making it ultra-clean and safe to drink. NEWater is mainly used for industrial and air-con cooling purposes. This high-grade reclaimed water provides the country with a sustainable and drought-proof source of water.
