SUEZ supports the Greater Bay area in China in its transition to a circular economy
In Zhuhai, SUEZ NWS has formed a joint venture1 with Zhuhai Huigang2 to build and operate the effluent treatment plant (25,000 m3/day) of the petrochemical industry park in the Zhuhai Gaolan Port Economic Zone. This project represents a total amount of 200 M€ over a period of 30 years. SUEZ’s PulsagreenTM solution will be deployed for the first time in the Chinese industrial wastewater treatment industry. This cutting-edge technology will guarantee the optimal treatment of effluents that can be reused by the petrochemical park's industries, thus preserving water resources in a rapidly developing region.
In Macao, SUEZ has formed a joint-venture with Waterleau for the upgrade, operation and maintenance of a wastewater treatment plant. The 4.5-year contract worth a total of 46.5 M€, including 23.3 M€ for SUEZ, provides for the expansion of the plant to 204,000 m3/day (from 144,000 m3/day today) and the deployment of technologies to improve wastewater treatment quality. In addition, in order to support the Macao government in waste recycling and recovery, the Group will operate and maintain a glass crushing facility for a period of 2 years and an amount of €1 million. Recycled glass sand will be re-used as road embankment.
The Zhuhai Gaolan Port Economic Zone Administrative Committee said: “We’re working with SUEZ to supply high-quality industrial wastewater treatment services to meet the park’s growing demand and rising standards for wastewater treatment. This will make the park more attractive to investors and boost green development for the Greater Bay Area as a whole.”
