China benefits from Lake Taihu algae treatment
2017-07-14 15:39:00


An innovative, new treatment process is making positive use of the blue-green algae that has infested one of China's five main fresh water lakes, Taihu Lake, in eastern Jiangsu Province.

The blue-green bloom in the lake has knocked out water supply, wrecked havoc on its ecosystem and turned its once clear, dazzling waters into a putrid, tea-green sludge.

Clean up is not easy, but compared with previous treatment processes, the new approach is much less labor-intensive, thanks to its automatic re-floatation installation.
