SUEZ supports China in the treatment of hazardous waste    9/25/2018 3:42:00 PM    ReadCount:348

 SUEZ NWS and Shanghai Huayi1 entered today into an agreement to jointly provide hazardous waste treatment and recovery solutions in Qinzhou, Guangxi province, China. Responsible for the management of hazardous waste at several industrial sites in China including the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP), this project marks another major milestone in SUEZ NWS’s commitment to support local government’s ambitious environmental goals in this area.

The agreement provides for the creation of a joint venture between SUEZ NWS (51%) and Huayi Group (49%), which will be responsible for the construction, financing and operation for 50 years of an energy recovery unit (ERU) for the hazardous waste produced by the Qinzhou Harbor Economic and Technical Development Zone of Guangxi Province. With a total investment of about €46 million, this facility will have an annual treatment capacity of 30,000 tons. The construction of the unit will begin in 2018 and will be operational by 2021.
The facility will provide safe and environmentally friendly disposal of hazardous waste, with a unit designed and built according to European standards in terms of air emissions. It will also recover 86,400 tons of steam, which will be supplied to local industrial customers, thus avoiding the consumption of an equivalent of 12,000 tons of coal per year and limiting greenhouse gas emissions.
“We’re delighted to partner with SUEZ Group on sustainable industrialization”, said Mr. Wang Wen Xi, Head of Environmental Protection department of Shanghai Huayi. “We have every confidence that by combining our strengths, we will achieve excellence in the Qinzhou project, for the benefit of China’s environmental sector. We plan to work with industrialists in more locations to achieve China’s noble environmental ambitions.”
