The world’s largest energy production from wastewater

18. May 2018


Bailonggang is the largest wastewater treatment plant in Asia. The international technology group ANDRITZ is now extending the plant, at a cost of €120 million, with the addition of a complete sludge drying and incinerator system that will make it the largest sludge incinerator in the world. The order covers engineering, manufacture and delivery as well as supervision of assembly and commissioning. The wastewater treatment plant, with a capacity of 3,000 tonnes of sludge per day, will serve as a benchmark for similar environmental projects in China. Construction is already starting this year and the first fire-up is planned for the end of 2019. A large order has also been landed from Sweden; a bio-methane plant with a capacity of 5,000 tonnes per year.


ANDRITZ to supply complete drying and incineration system for one of the world’s largest wastewater treatment plants in Bailonggang, Shanghai


International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order to supply a complete drying and incineration system for the expansion of the Bailonggang wastewater treatment plant in Shanghai. The order value for ANDRITZ is almost 120 million euros. Construction work will start at the end of 2018, with first firing expected by the end of 2019.

The technology supplied by ANDRITZ includes sludge handling, nine fluidized bed dryers, six EcoFluid bubbling fluidized bed boiler lines including the entire flue gas cleaning, as well as full plant automation. The scope of supply further comprises engineering, manufacturing, delivery, and supervision of both installation and commissioning.

Located in the city of Shanghai and close to Pudong International Airport, the Bailonggang wastewater treatment plant is one of the world’s largest effluent treatment plants and the largest in Asia. Upon completion, the expansion project will have an installed capacity of up to 3,000 tons sludge per day. The plant is set to be the world’s largest sludge incineration plant and will serve as a landmark among Chinese environmental projects.
