By three years time, the Aqualyng Caofeidian Water Desalination Project, which was co-established by Beijing Enterprises Water Group Limited and Aqualyng China Limited, will be capable of desalting one million tons of seawater from the Bohai Sea every day. The desalted water will then be delivered through 270 km of pipelining from Tangshan City in Hebei Province to Beijing.
