Our Business


Wastewater treatment is required to remove contaminants and ensure that industries are fully compliant with regional industrial wastewater treatment standards. AIRB offers cost effective approaches for design and build of wastewater treatment systems by combining proven systems and services arrangements to produce results and ensure long-term customer satisfaction. With advanced technology, AIRB is capable of solving most of the wastewater treatment issues with footprint optimization. AIRB provides tailored solutions and processes, specifically designed to meet challenging wastewater treatment requirements. The necessary wastewater treatment plant is determined based upon these requirements and commonly involves the use of evaporation, filtration, clarification, aerobic, and anaerobic wastewater treatment technologies.


Technical solutions are the answer for AIRB driving force. AIRB focuses on essential elements of wastewater reclamation processes. Innovative technology encompasses design optimisation and operational management, data processing, simultaneous processing of multiple data, and improved process modelling. AIRB offers a full automation plant to reduce the work force and increase the system monitoring with blending of programming language control (PLC). This method has successfully managed to increase not only in terms of innovation and efficiency but also sustainability. Reclamation is the process of converting wastewater into water to be reused for other purposes, where it can be used as a measure of saving freshwater supplies. Started in 2015, AIRB actively promotes wastewater reclamation projects to embrace the government policies of sustainable development goals. To date, AIRB has delivered a total wastewater recycling plant with capacity of 18.1 MLD, distributed among central arid southern part of Peninsular Malaysia. AIRB’s strong commitment and innovative engineering design in reclaim technology has given all clients confidence and satisfaction in engaging with AIRB. AIRB’s clientele are from major industries such as gloves manufacturer, electronics, and poultry.


Only 3% of the water on Earth by volume is fresh. Therefore, salt water is an indispensable natural resource for the production of drinking water. Desalination is a process that takes away mineral components from saline water. AIRB’s packaged, modular designs for seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) systems solve the desalination needs while optimizing operating costs that are built to meet the needs of the client. These plants use innovative technologies that optimise the processes, reduce operating costs and reduce environmental impacts.

Day by day the land price increases proportionally with economic growth and demand. Space issues become major obstacles for new water treatment development in the country. Regardless of the reason, AIRB`s ultrafiltration systems that are compact to save space and modular for easy installation. Ultrafiltration uses pressure to push water through a semipermeable membrane and remove any contaminants and retains minerals in the water, while filtering out bacteria, viruses, and parasites.

AIRB series offers a comprehensive range of treatment using membrane for a wide spectrum of applications. Another use of membrane is via ultrafiltration, a water purification method with a physical barrier. This treatment is using less chemical and allows for smaller plant sizes and a high level of possible automation – resulting in easier day-to-day operation.


Operation and maintenance are comprehensive works that provide all the necessary tasks about a physical plant allowing it to be running smoothly with a highly safe manner. AIRB has gathered solid know-how and experience in water related O&M activities ranging from construction and rehabilitation of water treatment plants, management of dams, inter-basin raw water transfer, and pumping stations. Water treatment facilities are more complex nowadays as raw water is more difficult to treat – therefore, the treatment requires more innovative solutions. This leads to uses of emerging technology of SCADA monitoring entrusting only competent personnel to handle the task. AIRB is also involved in three plants for operation and maintenance with Lembaga Air Perak, contributing to a cumulative of 20 years’ experience in the municipal segment and further strengthening its capabilities in the area.


Non-revenue water (NRW) is a terminology used for water that has been produced and is “lost” before it reaches the customer. Losses can be real losses (through leaks, sometimes also referred to as physical losses) or apparent losses. NRW is equal to the total amount of water flowing into the water supply network from a water treatment plant (Water Produce) minus the total amount of water that industrial and domestic consumers are authorized to use (Water Billed). AIRB offers comprehensive and holistic solutions in controlling NRW losses to acceptable levels, using modern NRW concepts and techniques in:

  • Survey and mapping of water assets
  • Pressure management
  • Active leakage control
  • Speed & quality of repairs
  • Infrastructure management
  • Meter replacement programme
  • Billing data management
  • Identifying illegal connections

Through implementation of NRW reduction and control works in various projects, AIRB has provided benefits to the clients in:

  • More water to be made available for the people
  • Conserving valuable water resources
  • Reduced operational expenditure
  • Reduced pumping thus saves energy and environment
  • Less interruption and contamination in water supply
  • Improved financial situation of utilities by improving revenue and deferring capital works program


Assets are increasingly stressed from over-use, under-funding, and aging. Public sector managers have been managing assets for decades. However, it is becoming clear that what AIRB has been doing in the past will not be sufficient to address the growing and increasingly complex challenges that lie ahead. Practical, advanced techniques for better managing physical assets have been developed and refined over the past several decades around the world.

AIRB has completed the first ever water asset management system with the integration of Radio-frequency identification (RFID), which has been successfully developed. With the development of asset management, the water operators will be able to create, update and maintain asset information that will be used for operation and maintenance purposes. AIRB developed by using an open source platform which will benefit the end user in the long run. With no license fees, the system can be tailored to the water operators needs without changing the current work process.
