I·PARK Waste-to-Energy Facilities: Transforming Waste into Renewable Energy in Hong Kong

The Hong Kong government is actively promoting the construction of waste-to-energy facilities to address the issue of landfill overcrowding. One such facility is I·PARK1, which is currently being built and will be able to process 3,000 tons of municipal solid waste per day. Another facility, I·PARK2, is also under development and is expected to handle approximately 6,000 tons of waste daily. Prof. Kenneth Leung, the Dean of the School of Energy and Environment at City University of Hong Kong, explains that these modern waste incineration facilities use advanced technology to efficiently convert waste into energy. The new incineration techniques involve high-temperature combustion that thoroughly burns harmful gases. This helps reduce the volume of waste and save landfill space.

Prof. Leung emphasizes that the emissions from these facilities will comply with strict international and national standards. With improved technology, the new incineration plants will have minimal environmental impact, and their emissions will be continuously monitored and publicly accessible to ensure transparency and public confidence.
