BEIJING, May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- An advanced control system against mining contamination, independently developed by Beijing GeoEnviron Engineering & Technology Inc (BGE), has been listed as one of the 3iPET TOP 100 environmental protection technologies supported by Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection.
The 3iPET Top 100 Environmental Protection Technologies Contests is launched by Foreign Economic Cooperation Office (FECO) of Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) of China. An efforts as China is exploring the best technologies and cooperation networks among official and private organizations and companies, both domestic and international, in the hope to provide the best opportunities to promote technologies to solve environmental problems in China and around the world.
The vertical barrier system, which could effectively control, separate and block contaminants from polluting underground water and soils in dredge mining operations, is one of the core technologies independently developed by BGE (XSHG: 603588), a leading player in the industry that provides advanced pollution prevention and treatment solutions in China.
The technology, which is expected to become the most eco-friendly solution to the rising potential threats caused by leakage of toxic and harmful obstacles in abandoned mines as well as aging refuse landfills in the cities, has been honored the third prize of Science and Technology of Environmental Protection, and selected on the list of 2015 National Key Environmental Protection Practical Technology.
So far, the vertical barrier technology has been successfully used in a series of projects in China, including Zijin Mining Project in Fujian province and Chihong Zn&Ge project in Yunnan province, which the vertical barrier wall was used to contain groundwater flow and migration of metal ion, as well as Jingjiang Project in Jiangsu province to contain groundwater flow and migration of organic chemicals.
Originally founded in 1992, BGE, whose predecessor was Lining Engineering Department of the Institute of High Energy Physics of Chinese Academy of Science, has been committed in environment technology researches and providing solutions to pollution prevention and control.
BGE was listed on the A-share (XSHG: 603588) at Shanghai Stock Exchange on December 29th. 2014. It has about 1400 employees with total assets of 4.4 billion Yuan. At present, BGE owns 138 patented technologies, 6 software copyrights. BGE has hosted or participated in the setting of 38 national and professional standards and technical specification.
As a member of International Association of Geosynthetic Installers (IAGI) and International Geosynthetics Society (IGS) since 2006, BGE has been a pioneer in exploring the international market with completing projects in Kazakhstan, Indonesia, Mongolia, Laos and Myanmar.
BGE has also set up an branch together with the Indonesian government to promote local industrial upgrading by BGE's advanced incineration technology.
