On April 1, 2018, the 2nd-phase project of Yuncheng second sewage treatment plant of SafBon located in the coking Industrial Park of Yuncheng was successfully launched. This project is the coking waste water of the industrial park, which is difficult to deal with and requires high technology. It is a long-standing problem in the local area. After treatment, the effluent should meet the national discharge standard. Yuncheng county is located in the southwestern part of Shandong province. Zhuzhaoxin river which runs through the eastern part of the county and is an important part of the trunk canal of the eastern route of the South to North Water Transfer Project.
Therefore, ensuring the water quality of the water system has always been the top priority for the local government and environmental protection departments. The two phase of the Yuncheng second sewage treatment plant is located in the Yuncheng coking Industrial Park. And this coking Industrial park is located just right in the Zhu- Zhao New River Basin, and the drainage of the park directly into the Zhu- Zhao New River. In order to ensure the water quality of the Shandong section of the main canal in the south to the north project, the Heze municipal government promulgated the most stringent industrial wastewater discharge standards in the history of March 2018, requiring the concentration of COD less than 30mg/l, the concentration of total phosphorus less than 0.3mg/l and ammonia nitrogen less than 2mg/l. This brought unprecedented pressure to the Yuncheng county government and environmental protection departments, and also raised more stringent target requirements for the two phase expansion project.
Coking wastewater is one of the most difficult types of industrial wastewater, with complex components and a wide variety of components, not only the high concentration of CODcr and NH3-N, but also a large number of phenolic compounds and polycyclic aromatic compounds, heterocyclic compounds and aliphatic compounds containing nitrogen, oxygen and sulfur, with many toxic components and high chromaticity, brings great difficulties to biodegradation and the cost of processing is high. At the same time, under the current environmental protection situation, the coking enterprises are built with advanced oxidation pretreatment system in the internal waste water, and the pre treated wastewater is reconcentrated to the industrial sewage plant of the park, which makes the coking wastewater more difficult to break down the chain degradation. Therefore, how to deal with the "two coking wastewater" to achieve qualified discharge has always been one of the most difficult subjects in the domestic and foreign water treatment industry.
Facing the difficulty “secondary coking wastewater” problem, SafBon performed full evaluation of the characteristics of local coking wastewater pollution and conducted on-site pilot tests and scientific experiments. The technical solutions issued by SafBon based on the above materials received the approval from the government finally.
At present, the second phase expansion project of Yucheng Second Sewage Treatment Plant is under construction. It is expected that the commissioning phase will start at the end of December. The completion of this project is believed to completely solve the problem of coking wastewater treatment in the park, producing obvious economic benefits in the local area, also playing a positive role in water quality protection of the South-Water-to-North Project.

On May 1st 2018, the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the 50,000t/d sea water desalination project which contracted to Safbon was successfully held in Aktau, the famous oil city of Kazakhstan. Experts of technology, construction and operation management of Safbon leading by the president Mr. Zhang Chunlin attended the event were warmly welcomed by the state governor Mr. Tugzhanov, the Mayor of Kuryk town Mr. Bekov, also the residents and the medias of Mangistauskaya Oblast.
Governor Tugzhanov expressed his vision in his speech: It is his dream to use clean water for the locals, which is also a urgent realistic issue that is eager to be solved. This plays an important role in promoting local economic development. This desalination project of SafBon will alleviate the serious water problem in the Aktau region and also bring a gospel to the local community.
Chairman Hilling Zhang believes that the governor and his people’s choice of Safbon as a collaborator of this great seawater desalination project is an extremely correct decision. Although Safbon is headquartered in Shanghai, he has 25% of employees working in Europe and the United States. He has a global team of experts who can provide “green seawater desalination technology”, making the project an environmentally friendly project, ensuring that no pollutants are emitted to the Caspian Sea, and building the project into a model of low-carbon seawater desalination projects.
After the completion of this project, it is believed that the serious drinking water problem in Aktau would be effectively alleviated, the living quality of Aktau residents would be greatly improved, the development of local economy would be promoted.
After the grand ribbon-cutting ceremony, the governor and the local squire warmly welcomed Chairman Zhang Chunlin and his entourage in the beautiful Mongolian yurts. He expressed his blessings on the National Day of Unity in Kazakhstan and congratulated on the prosperity of the Manggis State of more than 100 ethnic groups. Peace, people's health and longevity.
The local television station asked in the interview why Safbon chose Aktau? Zhang Chunlin, chairman of the company, answered in a straightforward manner that Aktau is equivalent to Dongying in Kazakhstan (where Shengli Oil Field is located). Both cities are oil cities. They all built cities in the 1950s because of oil. Safbon provided Dongying City with a drinking water project that met the European standards six or seven years ago. Local residents can open the tap and safely drink safe water.
The settlement of this world-class advanced desalination project in Kuryk Town will continuously deliver healthy and qualified purified water to local residents and industrial users, which will greatly alleviate the water shortage problem. Safbon is making its own contribution abroad with advanced Chinese technology under the guidance of The Belt and Road policy

—— the smooth convocation of the management meeting of the vice presidents of SafBon Water Service
Before you become a leader, the whole of success is self-growth. When you become a leader, success becomes a help for others to grow.
-- Jack Welch
Spring is approaching. SafBon Water Service held the management meeting of the vice presidents of the group from 27th to 28th in Mar. Unified leadership has always been this enterprise’s management philosophy, and the whole company has the same voice-- ONE VOICE， ONE LANGUAGE. Each VP works tightly around the president of Zhang Chunlin. Nowadays, a total of 12 VPs, 1 CEO, and 5 overseas CEOs managing 5 major business sectors of SafBon Water Service plus operation and supply chain and the departments of finance, investment and market make up a large organization. Under the organizational structure of SafBon, we require every senior executive to take charge, aware of the fact that everybody has the duty of transmitting and carrying out the meaning of the company’s decisions and strategies, and nobody shall stand by. Meanwhile, it is demanded that with the strategy of the group company all take actions quickly, accomplish quickly, coordinate inside the organization quickly, communicate with each other quickly, and take active part in your own work and thinking, thus take good control of the work in your charge!
At the meeting the chairman made a speech with the theme of We SafBon, whose summary is shown below:
The culture of SafBon Water Service: transparency, share and data driven. It is required all the staff sign a pledge solemnly. Whoever violates this principle will be demanded to depart firmly! A CEO should be the one who has foresight, vision and global insight and the one who is broad-minded and grafts Chinese power with global resources. Every senior executive needs to have a positive attitude, get out of comfortable zone and face challenges actively! Senior executives are supposed to have sight of the big picture, have a clear judgment on the uncertainty of the future and be prepared to deal with changes at any time.
Our corporation must use one language and a consistent style of writing and expression should be used in all the parts from project negotiation, marketing activity, technical exchange, delivery process, bank credit to websites of the company and propaganda on LinkedIn, etc.
The management and efficiency of all sub-companies need to be improved, just like what the West Point CATCH 22 "22 rules" said: each CEO of sub-companies should unconditionally obey the command of headquarters, which is a basic discipline. We need to reduce ineffective communication. Each CEO of subsidiary’s work report template needs to be detailed, and each contract should be reported individually and separately, adhere to the principle: any action delay means loss, efficiency means money. We have to establish a mechanism for mutual learning and communication. The cross meeting between the headquarters and the subsidiaries and among the subsidiaries will become normal in the future. All subsidiaries need to adjust their talent structure. People who have engineering education background are what we expect. In order to highlight the characteristics of a water treatment company, it is reasonable that the ratio of process engineers reaches 50%.
At the meeting the 12 vice presidents shared what they have learned from work and their respective management philosophy, and all agreed each vice president and CEO is result oriented, and pursues results with a strong executive power, with the financial index as a guide, stable talent structure as the concept of development, long-term and sustainable planning of the organization as the basic requirements. In the future, we will establish three centers in Shanghai headquarter: a design center, a procurement center and an accounting center, while overseas subsidiaries' work content is to gain market orders and carry them out, so as to generate higher profits for headquarters. The product manual of the flat ceramic ultrafiltration membrane and air floatation equipment will be published in the second half of the year gradually to ensure that customers can calculate and choose the equipment on their own. In order to prevent problems in the installation and commissioning stage, the company's operation department should be involved in the preliminary design and audit process of construction drawings in advance. Designers should listen to the opinions of the operation units and modify the design plan. At the same time, the group will choose a plant as a training base for SafBon Water Service, and prepare training materials and teams with SafBon features, which will become the "Communist Party of SafBon". As for the building site, architectural appearance of operating water plant, clothing, logo and so on, we will have the visualization system reform, highlighting the characteristics of SafBon.
We are expecting SafBon Water Service to grow sturdily and become the best among China's environmental water enterprises and further promote the innovation and development of the industry!

The main process is Dissolved Air Floatation + Nano-ceramic Flat Ultrafiltration Membrane + Two-stage Reverse Osmosis. The project will apply DAF from KWI Austria and CFM from ItN.
With the completion of this project, the current state of limited water supply will be greatly eased, and the economic development of the area and the surrounding towns and cities will be promoted.
On March 1st, the SafBon Chairman, Hilling Chang, visited Peru's capital city Lima for a four-days’ business trip with Alexander who is the international market manager of the SafBon. Two business visits have been made for Ministry Of Housing, Construction and Sanitation, and discussed water conservation planning and cooperation between the two countries over the next 3-5 year. At the same time, the group Chairman has close contacts with the leaders of the large state-owned Chinese state-owned enterprises and partners to develop new projects, such as water supply plants, desalination plants and sewage treatment plants and so on. In the initial stage of the project, technical and technical solutions are provided through technical exchanges and technical solutions, and the technical and technological routes of our group are implanted into these projects to allow the owners to accept us and make us in the predominance of future tenders.
The third stop for Mr. Hilling is Chile's capital Santiago, which is arranged by SWT CEO Chris C. We have carried out extensive contact with the chairman and CEO and others of the board of directors of a local professional water treatment company, and exchanges on projects to be invested by Chile in the next 3-5 years, such as seawater desalination, sewage treatment plants and mineral wastewater treatment plants. Since the company has offices in Chile, Peru and Columbia, a mature network system has been established in market development. How does the SafBon group develop the market and develop together with such partners? This is a challenging topic for management. We need everyone's advice to make our market solid.
A month ago, two water engineering experts from the AYA company of Costa Rico spent a week in SafBon, Shanghai, inspected its sewage treatment plants, sludge drying treatment plants, water plants and other projects. They spoke highly of SafBon’s construction ability, capability and management ability in the large engineering construction project.
How much knowledge you have about South America? Chile is about 4500 kilometers from north to south, and is close to the Pacific Ocean. The distance between the north and the south of Peru is 3254 kilometers, which is also close to the Pacific Ocean. The two countries add up to a magnificent coastline, plus Costa Rica, and hold a panoramic view of a long coastline in South America.
