On December 17, 2019, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China announced “The Guideline and Examples on Usage of Industrial Water Conservation Projects, Technologies and Equipment (2019 Edition) encouraged by Government”. The Guideline was developed to explain “The List of Industrial Water Conservation Projects, Technologies and Equipment encouraged by Government (2019 Edition)”, which was promulgated on November 13, 2019.
“Guideline” describes the mechanism, projects, indicators, usage examples, etc. of some priority technologies introduced in the “List” in details.
“Guideline” contains 56 types of conservation projects, technologies and equipment. The following paragraph is one example called “electrochemical circulating water treatment technology” in “Guideline”.
Technical scope of application
Applicable to industrial cooling water circulating systems.
Process and technology
The process image of this technology is as follows.
This technology decreases the hardness of water by 40%, and achieves a removal rate of 70% of Cl-, increasing the concentration ratio to 4-6 times, saving water consumption by 30% and displacement by 30% to 70%.
- Increase of the concentration ratio and reduction of water consumption;
- Alternative chemical drugs and environmental protection;
- High degree of automation and easy maintenance;
- Improvement of the thermal efficiency for heat exchange.
In “Guideline”, four companies applying this technology are introduced as examples. Examples includes information on the usage of the technology, the content and duration of implementation, the results of water conservation, and the payback period of the investment.
