The Centre for China Studies (CCS) is an independent research think tank focused on the study of China, her phenomenal rise and important engagement with Africa.

In the face of persistent drought and dwindling water resources in Tunisia, a groundbreaking solution has emerged. Recently, the Chinese-built Sousse wastewater treatment plant has become a lifeline for farmers like Moez Nabil, ensuring a steady water supply for their crops. Nabil, an olive farmer from Sousse, has successfully maintained a stable crop yield, despite the challenges posed by water scarcity. The Sousse wastewater treatment plant, completed by the Chinese Sino-hydro Corporation Engineering Bureau 15 Co, Ltd., has proven instrumental in overcoming the adverse effects of the prolonged water crisis.

The impact of the plant extends beyond environmental benefits. With an annual capacity to treat 19 million cubic meters of sewage and provide 18 million cubic meters of irrigation water, the plant serves as a beacon of hope for local farmers. Its implementation has significantly mitigated the environmental pollution caused by untreated sewage, offering a sustainable solution to the region’s water challenges.

Operational since 2019, the Hamdoun and Sousse South sewage treatment stations utilize advanced technologies, ensuring almost automated and highly efficient processes. The treated water not only meets agricultural irrigation standards but also addresses the urgent agricultural needs of the community.

Moreover, the plant incorporates biogas cogeneration systems, generating 19,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity per day. This innovation not only reduces the plant’s energy consumption but also contributes to sustainable energy practices. The success of the Sousse wastewater treatment plant has garnered attention from other regions in Tunisia grappling with similar water crises. The positive social and economic impacts of this initiative have prompted inquiries from various areas seeking collaboration with Chinese constructors to address drought challenges and optimize water resource utilization.

In conclusion, the Chinese-built sewage treatment plant in Sousse is not merely a technological marvel; it represents a transformative force, breathing new life into Tunisian agriculture amid the ongoing water crisis.
