BEIJING, China, Nov. 4, 2009 -- Tri-Tech Holding Inc., a premier Chinese company that engineers, manages and monitors municipal sewer systems, natural waterways and other Chinese water resources, announced today it has received a $1.6 million contract for a sewage treatment plant from the Construction Bureau of Kuancheng Manchu Autonomous County in Chengde City, Hebei Province.

The RMB10,887,800 contract for the Kuancheng County sewage treatment plant is a key Chengde City project for reduction of wastewater discharge. The plant will have a daily sewage treatment capacity of 20,000 tons that can be expanded to a maximum capacity of 30,000 tons. Kuancheng County has a population of 240,000 that will benefit from this project.

For the project, Tri-Tech will use a modified anaerobic ammonium oxidizing (A2/O) process with a "V" filter. A2/O is a well-known process that enables the removal of biological nutrients such as phosphorous or ammonium pollutants from sewage without adding special chemicals. Reclaimed wastewater discharged from the treatment plant will meet Class 1A standards as per the National Discharge Standard of Pollutants for Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plant. This reclaimed wastewater is suitable for certain reuses, including landscape irrigation, roadway dust control, and toilet flushing.

The contract includes procurement and installation of process equipment, pipelines, valves, electric devices, automatic control instruments, industrial television monitoring systems, as well as personnel training, plant inspection and completion trials.

Tri-Tech CEO Warren Zhao said, "We are pleased to work with Kuancheng County in building its first sewage treatment plant with a sewage disposal rate of 90%. This contract with a municipal client emphasizes our strong competitive position in China's wastewater treatment industry. We're honored that China's municipal governments continue to select Tri-Tech for superior equipment and technology to reduce urban sewage pollution and improve ecological environment and water quality."
