The water plant supplies industrial water and the wastewater plant treats industrial wastewater from textile companies based in the industrial parks in Changyi.
The 40 000 m3/day wastewater treatment plant is currently operating at near full capacity, while the 40 000 m3/day water supply plant is expected to start operation in the second quarter of this year.
United Envirotech will spend approximately RMB105 million acquiring the two plants and about RMB60 million upgrading the existing wastewater treatment plant using the Singapore company’s advanced membrane technology.
Dr Lin Yucheng, chairman and CEO of United Envirotech Ltd, said: “The project is a significant development for the company. We like the upgrading and modification portion of the project which will capitalize on our strength in membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology and industrial wastewater treatment. This is our fourth industrial park MBR investment after similar investments in Guangdong, Jiangsu and Hebei Province. This is going to be our first large scale MBR plant treating textile industrial wastewater, which I believe the technology will have wide ranging applications in other Asian countries.”
