The bioresources business is the single biggest enabler of energy neutrality for many water companies across the globe. Binnies is proud of supporting our clients in developing and delivering bioresources solutions that promote a circular economy and combat the challenge of climate change.
Binnies’ involvement with Anglian Water’s Special Projects Biosolids programme in the UK exemplifies successful collaboration whereby benefits at a strategic level have been realised with significant reductions in both capital and operational costs. This was achieved through the implementation of advanced digestion treatment technology incorporating both thermal and enzymic hydrolysis processes to increase biogas production and reduce recycling transport costs at strategic sludge treatment centres.
In Hong Kong, Binnies is planning the upgrade of the Tai Po sewage treatment works and aiming to transform the municipal sewage treatment plant into a resource recovery facility showcasing circularity via sharing of resources to serve the needs of the local industries and communities. The study will provide environmentally progressive solutions for phosphorous recovery and the innovative use of biosolids, whereby renewable energy is targeted to deliver greater sustainability for society and the environment.
Singapore continues to be at the leading edge of innovation in the water industry. Binnies has a proven history of supporting PUB, the national water agency, in harnessing advances in digital water technology together with the latest advanced treatment processes to realise operational, economic and environmental sustainability goals. This was very evident at the Ulu Pandan wastewater facility, where the demonstration plant enabled PUB to validate and set new standards for wastewater treatment while fulfilling the need to bring down energy use, keep things compact in land-scarce Singapore and reduce reliance on manpower. These tested technologies will enable the future integrated waste management facility co-located next to the Tuas water reclamation plant to achieve the highest possible energy efficiency and lowest greenhouse gas footprint, thereby doubling energy recovery while consuming less energy compared with conventional plants.
Binnies has a proven track record of delivering bold, creative and innovative solutions for our clients to ensure the goals for resilience, sustainability, energy efficiency and affordability are achieved.
