SUEZ NWS signed an agreement with its partner of Huaibei city, in Anhui Province, to build and operate a facility specialized in industrial hazardous waste management. Bringing sustainable solutions supportive to the local circular economy, this project will ensure the effective treatment of industrial waste whilst protecting the environment and fostering economic and social development. With a total investment of RMB 950 million, the construction of the project is scheduled to start in the second half of 2020. The completion and commissioning are expected by the end of 2021.
The facility will be designed and built to EU emission standards. Its energy recovery system will recover and produce 85,000 tonnes of steam per year, which will be supplied to the industrial customers in the area while mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. Furthermore, the above-ground landfill, to be designed and built in accordance with China’s latest and most rigorous pollution control standards, will be used for landfilling non-incinerable hazardous waste.
Song Yuxian, Director of the Administrative Board of the Anhui (Huaibei) New Coal Chemical Synthetic Material Base, said, “We are now accelerating industrial transformation and upgrade to align our activities with green, low-carbon, circular, energy-saving and environmentally-friendly requirements. We hope that the new JV will connect SUEZ’s environmental success stories around the world to not only enable safe and environmentally-friendly disposal of hazardous waste, but also to ensure environmental wellbeing and human health and a greener and more livable planet.”
