As of 30 June 2020, environmental energy sector had signed 177 projects in total, including 133 waste-to-energy projects, 25 food waste treatment projects, 6 sludge treatment and disposal projects, 3 leachate treatment projects, 2 methane-to-energy projects, 1 fecal treatment project, 2 fly ash landfill projects, 1 medical waste treatment project, 1 construction and decoration waste treatment project, 2 waste sorting and transferring projects and 1 solid waste treatment project, with a total investment of approximately RMB79.450 billion and undertook 2 O&M projects. These projects are designed to have an annual household waste processing capacity of approximately 45,829,000 tonnes, which can generate approximately 15,142,309,000 kWh of on-grid electricity annually, an annual food waste processing capacity of approximately 1,110,000 tonnes, an annual sludge treatment capacity of approximately 193,000 tonnes, and an annual medical waste treatment capacity of 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.
