University students awarded for water protection solutions
Six groups of Chinese university students were awarded on Friday in Shanghai for their researches and solutions in water protection in the LANXESS “Clean Water for Better Life” Research Competition.
A group from Beijing-based Minzu University of China won the first prize with their solution to tackle pollution in Caohai Lake in southwest China's Guizhou Province. They developed a multi-level underground infiltration system to treat the sewage.
The “Clean Water for Better Life” Research Competition was the fourth of its kind organized by LANXESS, an international specialty chemical company.
The annual event was initiated by LANXESS together with the China WTO Tribune in 2015 when China released its water pollution treatment plan known as the “Water Ten Plan.”
A total of 50 projects from 33 universities from across the country joined the competition this year.
