CECEP Yanlong (Beijing) Water Co., Ltd. launched an emergency plan for medical waste water treatment soon after the Xiaotangshan Hospital re-opened on March 16 to reduce secondary pollution.
The company is a subsidiary of China Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Group (CECEP) and the water treatment mission is mainly carried out by its affiliated Xiaotangshan Recycled Water Plant.
The plant treats medical waste water within an area of 70 square kilometers. It has a designed daily treatment capacity of about 70,000 tons of water.
According to the estimated beds number of the hospital, about 700 tons of medical waste water is produced every day, an amount the plant can easily handle.
The plant also adjusted its system to monitor the residual chlorine in the waste water to lower its negative impact on other production activities.
Workers from another four water plants are also on standby to respond to urgent situations.
So far, the daily production and detection work of residual chlorine of the Xiaotangshan Recycled Water Plant are in normal operation with about 23,900 tons of waste water being treated per day and released water meeting outlet requirements.
