LG Chem RO Membranes Increases Production South of the Equator

La Chimba desalination plant in Northern Chile


When Aguas de Antofagasta undertook plans to increase the capacity of its La Chimba desalination plant in Northern Chile, they turned to LG Water Solutions for an energy-efficient membrane solution that would enable the expansion of one of the plant’s six trains. As a result, LG Chem membranes enabled Aguas de Antofagasta to increase water production by 17% when compared to the original design and operation.
