Germany and China to work on clean water tech

The German and Chinese governments will work together on research to make water consumption in cities more sustainable, after a cooperation deal was signed last week.

As part of the German-Chinese Year of Science, the two partners will join forces on developing technologies for wastewater treatment, protection of river systems and drinking water preservation. The project will start with a conference on water issues in Shanghai later this year, the German research ministry said.

“Despite the very different urban structures in China and Germany we can learn a lot from each other about sustainable city development,” said Georg Schütte, state secretary in the German research ministry. “China is facing huge challenges when it comes to developing its cities. This gives us a chance to try out innovative environmental technologies in fast-growing cities in real-time.”
