BEIJING, July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Recon Technology, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RCON) ("Recon" or the "Company"), today announced that its 51% subsidiary, Gan Su BHD Environmental Technology Co., Ltd ("Gan Su BHD"), received the official 3-year hazardous waste operating permit on July 27, 2020 issued by the Environmental Protection Bureau of Gansu Province.
In addition, Gansu BHD has received a new order from the North China Branch of China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation ("Sinopec") to dispose 1,680 tons of oily sludge in Gansu Pingliang work zone. The value for this order is about RMB3.6 million ($0.5 million).
As previously disclosed by the Company, Gansu BHD purchased 50 year land use rights of a piece of 26,235 square meter land to construct a comprehensive disposal treatment facility to mainly serve the oilfield sewage treatment needs of Yumen Oilfield Company, China's first petroleum production base and a PetroChina Co., Ltd. ("PetroChina") subsidiary. The construction completed in January 2020. The comprehensive disposal treatment project has an annual processing capacity of 60,000 tons of oily waste, and is one of the most advanced and the only such automated treatment facility located in Gansu Province so far. As of today, Gansu BHD also provides services and treatment solution to Sinopec's Gansu branch.
M. Guangqiang Chen, co-founder and CTO of Recon, stated, "With the official permit, Gansu BHD can eventually provide large scale treatment service to clients. Affected by Covid-19, Gansu BHD's operation was postponed temporally. By far, we have resumed its operation. We have transported about 5,000 tons of oily sludge to our factory disposal site and are ready to process it so it can meet the requirements of national environmental laws and regulations. We have also received the major part of the services fees for this project from the client, demonstrating the trust and the confidence from our clients on Gansu BHD's treatment advantage and capacity. We believe Gansu BHD's performance will be reflected in our financial results gradually from mid-2020 and we expect more development on this disposal business."
