Emefcy Announces Inauguration Of It First Municipal Scale MABR Wastewater Treatment Plant


Emefcy, a provider of innovative, high effluent quality wastewater treatment solutions, are pleased to announce the official inauguration of its Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactors (MABR) wastewater treatment facility at HaYogev in Israel.

The inauguration ceremony was held on site, right next to the new MABR-based wastewater treatment modules.

The ribbon cutting ceremony was attended by a number of VIP guests from Israel, Australia, well respected news media, as well as Emefcy Board members from the US, Israel and Australia. The dedication ceremony speakers included Mr Tzachi Wermus, CEO of Yuvalei HaEmek municipality; Professor Avner Adin – Chairman of Adin Holdings, a globally recognized end to end water solutions firm; Mr Richard Irving, Executive Chairman of Emefcy; and Managing Director, Mr Eytan Levy.

Mr Wermus articulated his clear enthusiasm for Emefcy’s MABR solution which, for the first time, enables the community of HaYogev the benefit of state of the art treatment of their waste water with very low energy operating costs, as well as the supply of ample treated water for their agricultural irrigation needs. He further commented about Emefcy’s project having a range of unmatched key benefits, including lower commissioning costs, superior environmental performance, lower ongoing operating costs than its competitors, as well as being neighborhood friendly and being built from long life components.

The new municipal MABR facility serves the rural farming community of 1,000 homes, agricultural fields as well as local diary needs. Its demographics are representative of hundreds of thousands of rural communities worldwide, especially in China, where under the current 13th 5 Year plan, more than 110,000 such “off-grid” communities are currently seeking wastewater treatment solutions.

Mr Richard Irving, Emefcy Executive Chairman, noted that the flawless commissioning of the HaYogev municipal plant represents a key milestone for the company as it continues to grow, with Emefcy MABR based wastewater treatment plants currently under construction on the US Virgin Island of St. Thomas, a larger plant with 3 times the treatment capacity of HaYogev at Mekele University Hospital in Ethiopia, and in Jiangsu Province China. At the ceremony, Mr Levy thanked the dedication of the Emefcy team and shared the company’s vision for being the leading solution provider of energy efficient, cost effective wastewater treatment plants worldwide.

The company is the first in the world to provide commercial wastewater treatment solutions based on MABR technology, with 90% less energy, low operational cost and low capital expenditure. The MABR is a spirally wound air sleeve submerged in a tank, to which wastewater is fed continuously and effluent is discharged by overflow. This solution saves energy by eliminating the need to blow aeration, through the implementation of Emefcy’s patented passive aeration process.

This solution is ideal for small to medium sized plants, providing quiet and odorless wastewater treatment process to rural villages, hotels, resorts, golf courses and municipalities.
