Cleaning and Utilization of Wastewater from rubber factories


Seecon International GmbH


The island of Hainan is located in south China and represents an important tourist location for China. Many producers of agricultural products in the area have not solved their waste water problems due to lack of capacity and knowledge. Two Swiss companies together with their Chinese partner, the environmental authorities of Hainan and the Beijing Center for Ecological Engineering developed the project Nanlin. This project is a model plant for cleaning of wastewater from rubber factories and utilization of the residues as fertilizer and fish food as well as producing energy (biogas) in order to dry rubber and hence, to substitute petrol.
