The Sinopec petrochemical complex in Yanshan - 50 km from the centre of Beijing - is one of China's largest production sites for synthetic rubber and resin, phenol, acetone, and high quality refined petroleum products.


Here, Asia's largest refiner processes more than 10 million tonnes of crude oil and produces 800,000 tonnes of ethylene annually.

A major customer for Veolia, which is responsible for the complete management of the water cycle, covering demineralised water, industrial water, drinking water, chilled water, and wastewater. The objective: optimize water consumption and increase its recycling rate and reduce the site’s water footprint.
