GUANGZHOU, China — U.S. water purification company Aquatech has been awarded a contract for the design, engineering, supply and supervision of installation and commissioning of a concentrated brine treatment plant at the Chinacoal Tuke Fertilizer Project in China.
The project is located in the city of Ordos in the Inner Mongolia region.
"With this order intake, Aquatech is now well-equipped to offer optimized wastewater recycle and zero liquid discharge solutions not only to the emerging coal chemical market segment but also to other complex wastewater recycle and ZLD requirements in other industries in the Chinese market," said Tom Tseng, general manager, Aquatech (Guangzhou) Water Treatment Co. Ltd.
Ordos is in a locality in China where water scarcity is critical and the area is under the threat of desertification. Hence, the pollution control norms are very strict, and a zero liquid discharge (ZLD) facility in local projects is a mandatory requirement. The EPC contractor for the project, East China Engineering Science & Technology (ECEC), selected Aquatech to implement a wastewater recycle and ZLD system at the site.
