Additional Information

Construction of Rural Environment Team was founded in 2013 and the total investment funds was 2.14 million yuan. Currently, the team was composed of one chief, four Backbone experts and three assistant researchers. The mainly research contents of the team were: monitoring technology of rural ecological environment and identification of environmental main-control factors, emulation of rural environment-related material flow and simulation of typical contaminants migration and transformation, study of rural sewage monitoring technology and optimization of wastewater treatment engineering, treatment and resource recycling of rural solid waste, comprehensive evaluation and early warning of rural environment, rural environmental design, assessment and optimization.
