       On the afternoon of Aug. 22, 2018, a 6-person expert delegation from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), including Dr. Alecke and Dr Jens HOFMANN (Counsellor for Science and Technology, Germany Embassy to China), headed to the Beijing Tongzhou Bishui Underground WWTP to investigate the major 13th Five-Year scientific research project initiated by CWEG and entitled “Innovation of Underground WWTP Construction and Demonstration of Ecological Complex” - the subject of the National Water Pollution Control and Treatment Science and Technology Major Project, known as “water special”. Professor Zuo Jiane at the School of Environment of Tsinghua University and leaders from the Beijing Municipal Science and Technology Department, Beijing Municipal Ecology and Environment Department, and Beijing Municipal Water Authority, accompanied the delegation during the investigation. Pang Hongtao, Deputy General Manager of Beijing Technology R&D Center under CWEG, and R&D Engineer Li Peng, introduced in detail the Bishui Underground WWTP, the research progress of the 13th Five-Year “water special” project, and the Sino-German cooperative platform.

     During the investigation, the delegation was fully briefed on the WWTP’s construction progress, operation plan and wastewater treatment processes, including sewage & sludge treatment system, biological odor removal system, natural lighting system and water-source heat pump (WSHP) technology. Thanks to CWEG’s proprietary underground WWTP system featuring “eco-friendliness, low land occupation and high resource utilization”, the WWTP can produce high-quality effluent, achieve efficient energy recycling, and create significant environmental and social benefits, receiving recognition from the delegation.

     Initiated by CWEG, the scope of study of the 13th Five-Year scientific research project earned high praise from the delegation, who believed that this project will provide impetus to forward-looking technological breakthrough and construction model innovation in the wastewater treatment industry, and help regulate and standardize the construction and operation of underground WWTPs. Meanwhile, building the Bishui Underground WWTP into a green and low-carbon-emissions urban ecological complex is also of great importance to the water environment improvement and ecological civilization construction of Beijing’s sub-center Tongzhou.
      The delegation was also briefed about the Sino-German Centre for Water And healTh researCH (WATCH) as a Sino-German cooperation platform, including construction progress and scope of study. As the transnational joint research laboratory approved and funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the WATCH is jointly submitted by 11 institutions led by RWTH-Aachen University and including Sichuan University and CWEG. Dr. Pang Hongtao and experts of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research had in-depth exchanges on how to facilitate extensive Sino-German cooperation.
