About the Integrated Waste Management Facility: Located off the coast of Shek Kwu Chau, which is to the south of Lantau Island, the IWMF is Hong Kong’s first integrated waste management facility for municipal solid waste. As a key part of Hong Kong’s waste management strategy, it is able to reduce the total volume of waste treated at the facility by more than 90%, thus extending the lifespan of landfills. Currently, Hong Kong landfills its non-recycled waste. Expected to be completed in 2024, the IWMF comprises a WTE Plant, a mechanical treatment plant and ancillary facilities, which include an administration building, visitor centre, port handling facilities, as well as desalination and wastewater treatment plants. Contracted to treat about 3,000 tonnes per day of mixed municipal solid waste, the WTE Plant will feature Keppel Seghers’ proven WTE technology with its air-cooled grate, boiler design, and advanced combustion control system. In addition, the WTE Plant will also use Keppel Seghers’ flue gas cleaning system, ensuring that the plant’s emissions will comply with Hong Kong and EU standards, which are amongst the most stringent international standards available. … (LINK)
