Chungju Acquires Patent for Wastewater Treatment New Technology

According to Yonhap News,

(CHUNGJU=Yonhap News) Chungju City announced March 12 that it has acquired a patent for developing a wastewater treatment new technology through industrial academic and public cooperation.


The city, Korea National University of Transportation, Joeun Engineering Co., Ltd. and Hoam Engineering Co., Ltd. began a joint project to develop water regeneration technology in 2013.

The new technology integrated an automatic control system onto the technology that can eradicate nitrogen and iron that cause tidal currents in streams.
