Veolia signs a record contract with Sinopec, the top refining company in China and Asia to optimize the water cycle in its Yanshan Petrochemical complex

Sinopec selects Veolia for 25-year contract to optimize the water cycle in its Yanshan Petrochemical complex, located in a high water stress region 50 km from Beijing.
Yanshan Petrochemical, a fully owned Sinopec subsidiary, and Veolia are creating a joint venture dedicated to the project which will employ 800 people.

The petrochemical complex is one of the largest production bases of synthetic rubber, synthetic resin, phenol acetone and high-quality refined oil products in China. It processes over 10 million tonnes of crude oil and produces 800,000 tonnes of ethylene annually.

Already in partnership for several years, Veolia and Beijing Yanshan Petrochemical are now extending their partnership to the entire management of the water cycle on the Yanshan site, including cooling water, demineralized water, industrial water, drinking water, chilled water, waste water and firefighting water. The goal is to optimize water consumption and increase the water recycling rate to reduce the site’s water footprint.
