SMARTLAND meets China's Concept 2030 Committee of Experts
In August 2016, Smartland presented the design of the Infinity Park to China's Concept WWTP Committee consisting of six well-known environmental experts in the field of sewage treatment and urban concepts. The committee focusses on the future of China's wastewater treatment plants: The Concept WWTP.
The Concept WWTP will focus, next to waste water treatment, on sustainable water quality, energy recovery, resource recycling and will become a resource factory for its surroundings.
The first Concept WWTP will be built in Yixing, Gaocheng District and is part of the Yixing Environmental Protection, Science and Technology Industrial Zone.
Established in 1992 and currently one of the major high-tech science and technology oriented industrial development zones of China, the area has been appointed by the Jiangsu Provincial Government as an important showcase for circular economic development, recently called: Yixing Ecological Water and Technology City
For this pilot project in Yixing, the Concept WWTP will form the core of a 128 ha eco-complex: "Infinity Park". In this park technology, environmental education, ecology, modern agriculture, gardening and leisure is integrated in a beautiful landscape park on the border of the city. It shows the harmony between the city, the people and their environment.
This unique and future-oriented pilot project will serve as an example for other Chinese cities. It will promote China!&s advanced waste water treatment techniques, sustainable water quality, energy recovery, resource recycling and environment-friendly development.
