Everbright International Wins Xi'an Lantian Waste Electricity and Heat Cogeneration PPP Project in Shaanxi Province

25 January 2018, Hong Kong - China Everbright International Limited ("Everbright International" or the "Group") (HKSE: 00257) is pleased to announce that the Group has won the bid for Xi'an Lantian Household Waste Electricity and Heat Cogeneration PPP (Public-Private Partnership) Project ("Xi'an Lantian Project") in Shaanxi Province, with a leading score in the overall bidding process. The project is estimated to command a total investment of approximately RMB1.08 billion.

With a concession period of 30 years (construction period inclusive), Xi'an Lantian Project has a designed daily household waste processing capacity of 2,250 tonnes. The project will be equipped with three 750 tonnes/day mechanical grate furnaces and two sets of 25MW turbine power generators. The water produced from the leachate treatment will comply with water quality standards allowing the utilisation of reused water in open-type recirculating cooling water systems, realising the "full reuse and nil discharge" of leachate. The project is expected to generate approximately 250 million kWh of green electricity annually, with its gas emissions fully complying with the Euro 2010 Standard.

Mr. Wang Tianyi, CEO of Everbright International, said, "As the capital city of Shaanxi Province, Xi'an is a core city of the Guanzhong Plain urban cluster, as designated by the State Council of the PRC in January 2018. The city is also a gateway under the plan for the large-scale development of China's western region. While acting as a keystone of the westward opening-up in the country, the city also plays a crucial role in the Belt and Road Initiative. Xi'an Lantian Project sets a significant milestone as it is Everbright International's first household waste treatment project located in a provincial capital in Western China and the Group's fifth waste treatment project located in a provincial capital of the country."

Mr. Wang Tianyi continued, "Everbright International will fully make use of its advantages and experience in investment, construction, operation and management, and uphold its philosophy of first-class management, excellent design and high-quality construction. This is to ensure that Xi'an Lantian Project will adopt state-of-the-art technology and strictly follow relevant emission standards, which will help to achieve the harmless treatment, reduction and reuse of local household waste. We will develop the project into a high-quality benchmark waste-to-energy project in Western China, with a view to enhancing the ecological and living environment of Xi'an City, the starting point of the Silk Road Economic Belt."
