Perfect Green attended the "Waste-to-Energy Incinerator" seminarPerfect Green attended the "Waste-to-Energy Incinerator" seminar organized by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University on 26 May. Mr. Elvis Au, JP, Assistant Director of Environmental Protection Department, was the key speaker of the event.
We learnt more about the Government's plan on developing the Integrated Waste Treatment Facilities (IWMF) Phase 1 at an artificial island site near Shek Kwu Chau. The IWMF Phase 1 could substantially reduce the volume of 3,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste (MSW) by 90% each day. This would help to reduce landfill disposal requirement and lengthen the life span of landfills. The IWMF Phase 1 would also recover energy from the MSW, thereby reducing the use of fossil fuel for electricity generation and contributing to the reduction of local greenhouse gas emission.
