Poten Environment Group
Based in Beijing, China
One of China's major EPC contractors in industrial water treatment, including reuse and zero liquid discharge projects. As well as engineering and systems integration services, the company offers membrane and equipment supply, and operations and maintenance services. In terms of wastewater treatment, the company specialises in ammonia and COD treatment. Poten Environment Group has over 90 subsidiaries and 5 regional centres. In 2018, Poten Environment failed in an attempt to acquire Chinese UPW and zero liquid discharge specialist, TG Hilyte Environmental. This exacerbated the company's financial difficulties which were already caused by a tightening PPP market in China. Poten is seeking financial backing from state-owned enterprise (SOE) investors.
