As of 31 December 2019, the Group's environmental energy sector had 125 waste-to-energy projects (including 2 O&M projects), 18 food waste treatment projects, 5 sludge treatment and disposal projects, 3 leachate treatment projects, 2 methane-to-energy projects, 1 fecal treatment project, 1 fly ash landfill project, 1 medical waste treatment project and 1 solid waste treatment project, with a total investment of approximately RMB70.594 billion. These projects have a total designed annual household waste processing capacity of approximately 41.64 million tonnes, which can generate annual on-grid electricity of approximately 13.7 billion kWh. The total designed annual food waste treatment capacity is approximately 865,000 tonnes, while the total designed annual sludge treatment capacity is approximately 157,000 tonnes, and the designed annual medical waste treatment capacity is approximately 4,000 tonnes.
Projects in Operation
|Project||Average Annual Electricity
|Suzhou Methane-to-energy Project Phase I||18,000,000||28|
|Suzhou Methane-to-energy Project Phase II||9,000,000||13|
Suzhou Methane-to-energy Project Phase I and II have a combined annual electricity generation capacity of 27,000,000 kWh. It collects methane produced from waste landfill sites for electricity generation. The project also utilises the high temperatures and residual heat from the gas. It is the first Verified Emission Reduction (VER) project in China that has registered with the Switzerland-based Gold Standard Foundation.
