Hengji Water

Preserving China’s water resources

Overview

The rapid development of China’s economy has created a growing demand in water for industrial uses, straining China’s already scarce water resources. 

As a leading wastewater treatment facility in Dalian, Hengji Water works to improve the quality of recycled effluent water for industrial users in order to preserve water resources and accelerate China’s transition to a greener society. A MIRA led consortium invested in Hengji Water in 2014 and, as part of our commitment to support the energy transition, saw an opportunity to further enhance its operational performance and technological development in sewage treatment.

Sustainable water treatment

With an annual output of 12 million tons of high-quality recycled water, Hengji Water ensures the stable treatment of sewage and highly polluted wastewater discharged from chemical companies. The company operates a portfolio of two wastewater treatment facilities and one water recycling asset with a total operating capacity of 220k ton/day.

Hengji Water has consistently met and exceeded the national standards for municipal and industrial water treatment. Moreover, by recycling the water for industrial use, the facility is also improving the local ecological environment and preserving valuable water resources in a part of China where this is especially scarce. This commitment to industry standards continued throughout the COVID-19 outbreak when the company was able to provide uninterrupted services to the Dalian community.
