Kimou Environmental Holding Limited (the “Group”), which Commences Trading on Main Board of Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 16th July 2019，stock code 06805.HK, is a developer and operator of large-scale electroplating industrial parks in the PRC. Active in exploring and putting into practice its expertise in electroplating industrial park operation, the Group has, since its industrial park in Huizhou, Guangdong, was established in 2005, remained dedicated to its core business of electroplating wastewater treatment, insisting on tackling systematically pollution resulting from electroplating and offering related management services to electroplating companies, developing with innovation ways to help the electroplating industry protect the environment.
Largest scale and fastest growing in the industry
The Group owns three large electroplating industrial parks in the PRC – in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area in Southern China, the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei economic hub in Northern China and the core districts in the economic belt mid-stream the Yangtze. Its Huizhou Longxi Environmental Electroplating Industrial Park and Tianjin Bingang Electroplating Industrial Base started operation in 2007 and 2016 respectively, and construction of the Central China Surface Processing Recycling Economic Industrial Park has begun.
The three industrial parks together occupy 1,600,000 sq.m. and the Group has already obtained land use rights for 1,280,000 sq.m. They can handle a total of 57,000 tonnes of wastewater a day, with more than 50% of the treated water reusable.

So far, more than 170 electroplating entities have set up offices in the industrial parks.
Embrace technological R&D and industry-academia-research integration
The Group uses different techniques in handling electroplating wastewater, including physiochemical and biochemical process, ion exchange, filtering and advanced oxidation to categorize and collect wastewater for centralized treatment. There are indicators such as wastewater reuse and discharge levels laid down that agree with relevant environmental protection standards set by the Chinese Government.
