The petrochemical complex is one of the largest production bases of synthetic rubber, synthetic resin, phenol acetone and high-quality refined oil products in China. It processes over 10 million tonnes of crude oil and produces 800,000 tonnes of ethylene annually.
Already in partnership for several years, Veolia and Beijing Yanshan Petrochemical are now extending their partnership to the entire management of the water cycle on the Yanshan site, including cooling water, demineralized water, industrial water, drinking water, chilled water, waste water and firefighting water. The goal is to optimize water consumption and increase the water recycling rate to reduce the site’s water footprint.
Veolia will upgrade the wastewater treatment facility to bring it into compliance with the most stringent standards worldwide for industrial water discharge.
The Group will also reduce energy consumption per m3 of water produced, and consequently the carbon footprint.
