Chinese chemical plant chooses sustainability

Posted: Thursday 15th February 2007

Paques Environmental Technology Shanghai, a subsidiary of Paques BV, has reached an agreement for the design and building of the largest anaerobic water purification plant in the history of the company. The plant will be build for Jilin Ji’an New Energy Group Co., Ltd., a company that produces butyl alcohol, acetone and ethanol for the chemical and pharmacy industry.

Integral solutions for the reduction of CO2 emissions and the purification of waste water are considered very important in the strategy of Paques. The biogas that is released in the process of waste water treatment for Jilin Ji’an New Energy Group, equals the natural gas demand of a city with approximately 100,000 inhabitants. The anaerobic installation of Paques, consisting of four BIOPAQ®IC reactors of 12.5 meter diameter and 28 meters height, will treat 24.000 m3 of waste water per day, containing 360.000 kg organic waste (COD).

The growing interest for sustainable energy solutions worldwide has recently been underlined by the energy proposals of the European Committee. A far reaching development of so-called low carbon technologies is part of these proposals.

Paques develops and supplies water and gas purification systems using innovative biotechnology. These systems offer industries and municipalities added value, such as: the re-use of water, the generation of sustainable energy and the reclamation of valuable substances from waste water. Paques combines economic progress with environmental responsibility. Paques is market leader in the area of anaerobic waste water treatment.
