China's war on trash creates market for European green enterprises


Trash separation is the talk of the town in China these days as the government unveils a list of 46 "pilot cities" to build up a garbage sorting and processing system by 2020.


Mandatory schemes on household garbage sorting have already emerged in metropolises like Shanghai in order to improve its recycling rates.

Moreover, an investment of 21.3 billion yuan (about 3.1 billion U.S. dollars) will be allocated to speed up building the recycling system, according to the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development.

Many European enterprises, with their advanced technology and rich experience, have seen enormous markets and are eyeing a share in China's ongoing green efforts.


Germany's ALBA group has brought one of its specialities to the southern Chinese city of Jieyang in Guangdong Province.

A complicated yet precise ingenuity was seen at one garbage processing plant.

After removing heavy metals, plastics, harmful waste, sand, rocks, water, step by step, recyclable substances were taken out, smashed and reshaped to fuel blocks.

"The unique technology turns household garbage into green fuel," said Chang Guang, project manager for the garbage processing plant, a joint venture of ALBA Group, Zhongde Metal Group and Guangdong Rising Assets Management Co., Ltd.

Chang said calorific value of the fuel block equals that of brown coal and can be used as alternative fuel in power or cement plants.

"It is more environmentally friendly. Compared to burning coals, our fuel block emits about 70 percent less CO2," Chang added.

The project has received support from the local government, as dealing with mountains of garbage has always been a headache for many cities including Jieyang.

The daily total volume of garbage in the mid-sized Chinese city has rocketed from 600 tons in 2005 to 1,500 tons in 2018.

Pei Albrecht, head of ALBA Group's China affairs, said many other cities have already shown interest in waste recycling technologies and the market potential in the coming years are beyond imagination.

"ALBA Group was invited to work out some plans for garbage disposals in cities like Taiyuan (in northern China). They're determined to solve their problems," said Pei.

And Chengdu, located in Southwestern China,as one of the 46 pilot cities of trash separation,is bringing as many advanced environmental protection such as solid waste treatment technology and equipment as possible from the world to speed up the construction of “ waste free city”.

With an eye on China's green future, Chinese enterprises are investing and cooperating with relevant European businesses.

In September,2018. Chengdu International Environmental Protection Expo (CDEPE) brought in the international resources and technology support from ECOMONDO- the leading green technology expo of Italian Exhibition Group in European-Mediterranean area, aiming to build a new platform for green technology exchange between western China and the world.


CDEPE2020 will be guided by Italian Exhibition Group(powered by ECOMONDO) and China Association of Environmental Protection Industry, co-organized by Sichuan Association of Environmental Protection Industry (the most authoritative environmental organization in Sichuan Province, with nearly 2,000 members enterprises );

CDEPE2020 will be held at Chengdu New International Convention and Exhibition center from March 31-April 2,2020,which covers the exhibition area of 40,000sqm,and expected to abstract more than 500 exhibitors and 28,000 visitors;

Catch the opportunity to step into the Southwestern China environmental market,CDEPE deserves and expects your coming!
