A Delegation Led by Shaktikanta Das, Deputy Prime Minister of India, Visited CWEG's Beijing Tongzhou Bishui Underground WWTP2016-08-19
As a core part of the PPP demonstration project “Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Integration: The North Canal Watershed Management”, the Bishui Underground WWTP, located only 2.2 km from the core area of Beijing’s sub-center Tongzhou, receives and treats 84% of domestic wastewater from the new urban zone of Tongzhou District, effectively protecting underground water sources from being polluted and purifying the North Canal’s water bodies. The treated, high-quality effluent will be used for significantly recharging the watercourses, and for urban landscaping, industrial and domestic uses. In this way, water resources can be effectively recycled, helping improve the ecological, investment and living environments of the city.
Backed by CWEG’s fifth generation of proprietary underground WWTP system and seven world-leading, whole new, and intelligent green and low-carbon technologies represented by SWIFT (Sustainable Water Intelligent puriFication Technology), the Bishui Underground WWTP saves 66% of land and increases treatment capacity by 80% to 180,000 t/d. All the treatment facilities were placed underground, leaving aboveground space for building a large urban forest & wetland park and Beijing’s first water environment science education base. The WWTP, as a PPP-driven innovation that maximizes the Value for Money, was highly recognized by Shaktikanta Das, Deputy Prime Minister of India, who anticipated much more exchanges and cooperation in water environment management between India and China.
