Siemens will help Wuxi City in East China’s Jiangsu Province recover the water quality of the Taihu Lake.
Siemens plans to supply a Membrane Bio-Reactor (MBR) system to the sewage treatment plants at Wuxi New Zone, an industrial development area, to expand its waste treatment capacity.
The MBR system is scheduled for trial run by the end of 2008. By then, 30,000 cubic meters of sewage will be disposed every day, thus helping Wuxi heighten urban centralized sewage treatment ratio to 90% by 2010.
As an important water source for a population of 30 million, Taihu Lake was once fouled by industrial wastewater. To clean Taihu Lake, Jiangsu Province is now upgrading the sewage treatment plants.
