North Africa & Jordan

The Regional Section establishes and cultivates contact to North African and Jordanian institutions and companies. Activities include the development of projects, the organization of trips and conferences as well as the joint participation in trade fares. As a result, the cooperation of German companies and institutions with local and regional stakeholders is strengthened and business contacts can be initialized.

GWP thereby works closely with the Arab Countries Water Utilities Association (ACWUA). The Regional Section North Africa & Jordan focuses on: Egypt, Tunisia, Jordan and Morocco. We are interested in cooperating with local and regional actors and are happy to provide further information about our association, our network and our members.

Case study about AlexFert fertilizer production in Egypt


12/2019
Egypt

Application and system design

Lewabrane® B400 FR elements are installed in the new BWRO plant of Egyptian fertilizer producer AlexFert in Alexandria, Egypt. The water treatment plant is fed with canal water (Nile river as origin) of seasonally variable TDS (300–550 mg/l). The water is pre-treated by coagulation, cold lime softening, and filtration. The RO plant consists of two trains, each of 120 m3/h feed stream and 74% recov-ery. A single train is composed of two stages in a 13:6 array with six elements per vessel. The RO units were placed into an existing water treatment plant, upstream of ion exchange full demineralization trains (SAC – WBA/SBA – MB, with Lewatit® MonoPlus resins).

Membrane Performance

From the beginning of their use, the Lewabrane® RO elements demonstrated their excellent salt rejection with up to 99.76 % (at 20 °C). This rejection leads to a permeate conductivity in the order of 3 to 5 μS/cm, which significantly reduces ionic load for the resins at the demineralization unit. While maintaining the demanded parameters of deminer-alized water, the cycle times of the demineralization trains are increased by up to four times (depending on season and with a possibility for further increase). Thus, the customer can reduce consumption of specific chemicals for resin bed regeneration by approx. 60%.

Conclusion

Lewabrane® B400 FR exhibits an excellent performance with the difficult Nile surface water. The measured rejection is above expectations. The combination of Lewabrane® B400 FR membranes and Lewatit® MonoPlus resins for demineralization leads not only to the requested final demineralized water conductivity below 0.08 μS/cm / 2 ppb SiO2, but also to a stable and reliable process. Further-more, the new RO plant allows a reduction of specific chemical consumption of the resin bed due to less frequent regenerations.
