The Project Phase I commands an investment of approximately RMB436.3 million, with a daily solid waste processing capacity of 800 tonnes (comprising 700 tonnes of household waste, 50 tonnes of food waste and 50 tonnes of sludge). The waste-to-energy system of the Project Phase I is equipped with a self-developed 700 tonnes/day mechanic grate furnace and a 12MW turbine power generator, and is expected to generate 96,000,000 kWh of green electricity annually. Its gas emissions will fully comply with the Euro 2010 Standard.

Ruzhou City is a historical and cultural city in Henan Province with pleasant living environment surrounded by mountains and rivers. In recent years, as the regional central city in the southwest of Henan Province, Ruzhou City has experienced relatively quick development across many aspects in terms of economy, culture, and in particular ecological conservation and green development. As a city directly governed by the provincial government, Ruzhou City is the first to construct a veinous industrial park to promote its ecological conservation, and to develop circular economy for the long term.

Mr. Hu Yanguo, CEO of Environmental Energy Sector at Everbright International, said, "Ruzhou Industrial Park Project is Everbright International's fourth environmental energy project in Henan Province and its 12th veinous industrial park. It is also the Group's first veinous industrial park in a county-level city. The Group will adhere to its core value and principle of ‘Producing Quality Projects and Building a Quality Brand', and pursue high standards and high-quality designs, operation and management, in an effort to develop Ruzhou Industrial Park Project into a benchmark veinous industrial park project in Central China. Through the Project, the Group will be committed to achieving the integrated and harmless treatment, reduction and reuse of various waste, and to further facilitating comprehensive cooperation in the construction of industrial parks and the water environment management with the local government, in order to continuously contribute to the sustainable social and economic development of the city."
