   Acknowledged by PIA as a mutually-beneficial and win-win cooperation platform for both sides in China, the platform will equip itself with wastewater treatment facility testing capability partly by introducing multiple decentralized wastewater treatment technology quality standards from Europe, the United States and Japan, and on this basis, help drive the establishment of China’s own assessment method and quality standard for decentralized wastewater treatment technology.
     During the seminar, Dr. Elmar Dorgeloh and Martina Defrain - the head of PIA Water Reuse Department, visited CWEG’s Guang’an Underground WWTP, Guang’an Decentralized Rural Wastewater Treatment Station, and the site of the Inkstone Washing Pond (located at Deng Xiaoping's hometown) Ecological Restoration project, etc. They spoke highly of CWEG’s underground WWTP system and decentralized rural wastewater treatment technology, and were confident that the both sides can build China’s decentralized wastewater treatment facility testing and assessment platform into a worldwide exemplar relying on CWEG’s professional strength.
