Under the contracts signed between GE and Korean-based Posco Engineering GE will supply a ZLD wastewater treatment system, which includes two EDR trains for water reclamation, for Posco’s new plant. GE also will provide technical services, including operator training, during installation and commissioning of the new facility. The Posco Cold Rolling Mill Steel Plant is expected to enter commercial service during the second quarter of 2013.

"It Is Critical to Reduce the High Levels of Water Use”

“Because of the ongoing water challenges in this region, it is critical to reduce the high levels of water use for industrial applications,” said Kyung Sun Kim, project manager for Posco. “GE’s innovative, customised wastewater system will help Posco address that challenge while at the same time meeting local government regulations for wastewater discharge and supporting initiatives to prevent water pollution.”
