Siemens to Supply Georgia Tech with Water Treatment System
The Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) has selected Siemens Water
Technologies to provide multi-million dollar wastewater and ultrapure water
treatment systems for a new, 55 million euros ($80 million) nanotechnology
research centre, located in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The wastewater treatment
system will treat acid/or alkaline waste streams, and the ultrapure water treatment
system is designed to meet very tight water quality specifications required by the
Centre’s research programs. Construction on the new centre is slated to be
complete in October, 2008.
The new nanotechnology centre will be the most advanced nanotechnology facility in
the Southeast, the first of its kind in the region, and will be one of the most sophisticated
in the country. Located on the Georgia Tech campus, the 160,000-square-foot facility
will feature 30,000 square feet of clean rooms critical to research and instruction in
microelectronics, semi-conductors, materials, medicine and pharmaceuticals.
The new wastewater treatment system from Siemens consists of multimedia filtration,
activated carbon treatment, softening and chemical feed to treat acid and/or alkaline
waste streams, depending upon projects running through the centre. The ultrapure
water treatment system will include reverse osmosis (RO) membrane filtration and
deionization, UV sanitation, chemical feed, and instruments and pumps. The skid-
mounted design of the ultrapure water system will greatly reduce installation time,
allowing the centre to meet tight water quality specifications and handle the most
Mechanical contractor on both the wastewater and ultrapure water systems is Mann
Mechanical, Avondale Estates, GA. Georgia Tech and MW Zander/Whiting-Turner, are
the Project engineers.
