GE, Sasol's new technology cleans waste water, generates biogas (South Africa)


General Electric’s power and water division and energy and chemical company Sasol announced they have jointly developed a new technology that cleans waste water while generating biogas for power production. The companies have named the technology Anaerobic Membrane Bioreactor Technology (AbMBR), and plan to further develop it at a demonstration plant at Sasol’s R&D campus in Sasolburg, South Africa. Sasol currently uses aerobic microbes to treat gas-to-liquid (GTL) and coal-to-liquid (GTL) effluents at two of its facilities, but the new AnMBR technology utilizes anaerobic microorganisms.
