A push by the government to develop recycled water is expected to create NT$150 billion (US$4.46 billion) worth of business opportunities in Taiwan by 2031, according to an estimate of the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
The ministry said that the central government is planning to launch a pilot program to build six recycled water plants as a model for the private sector to follow. The projects to build the plants have been approved by the Executive Yuan.
In addition, the local governments and private corporations are expected to make their own efforts to develop recycled water, the ministry added. [FULL STORY]
