Case Study: Kwinana Water Reclamation Plant, WA (16.5 ML/day)

Background

The Kwinana Industrial Area (KIA) is the primary heavy industrial centre in the State of Western Australia. It is located 40 km south of Perth and contributes to more than 10% of the State industry output. 60% of the total industrial demand of the Kwinana Industrial Area was provided through self-supplied groundwater. Industrial expansion schemes significantly increased the groundwater demand that exceeded the available capacity. 

Description

The Kwinana Water Reclamation Plant treats 16.MLD of wastewater to produce 5.5 ML/day of high quality water for use by large industrial customers in the Kwinana Industrial Area (Rio Tinto, Edison Misson Energy, chemical fertiliser manufacturer CSBP and petroleum giant BP), reducing their potable water consumption.

The reclamation scheme treats wastewater from the nearby Woodman Point Wastewater Treatment Plant. Microfiltration and a two-stage Reverse Osmosis are used to treat the wastewater and to produce the quality needed for reuse. The water is then distributed to industrial customers.

The Kwinana Water Reclamation Plant received the AWA Environmental Merit Award 2005
