Waste to Energy | Southern China

Waste to Energy

The plant uses municipal waste, reducing Southern China’s mounting landfills. The waste is then produced into energy to both run the plant and contribute to the region’s electricity supply.

HISTORY

Built in 1999, it was the twenty-third of its kind in the world. It later expanded in 2013 in South Eastern China. Built on a land space of only 2.1 hectares, it is considered one of the most compact in the world.


OBJECTIVES & RESULTS


OBJECTIVES:

The plant uses municipal waste, reducing Southern China’s mounting landfills. The waste is then produced into energy to both run the plant and contribute to the region’s electricity supply.
