The project will adopt "pre-treatment + solid-liquid extraction of oil + medium-temperature blend-stirred anaerobic fermentation + residue incineration + methane-to-energy" in the main treatment process, and is equipped with a pre-treatment workshop, a deodorisation system and other equipment.
Danyang Food Waste Project, with an investment of approximately RMB63.2 million, will also be invested in and constructed on a BOT model and is scheduled to be transferred to the local government at the same time as Danyang Waste-to-energy Project of the Group. With a designed daily food waste processing capacity of 80 tonnes, Danyang Food Waste Project is equipped with one 80 tonnes/day food waste treatment line, and will adopt "pre-treatment + solid-liquid extraction of oil + reserved anaerobic digestion + residue incineration + methane-to-energy" in the main treatment process. The project is also equipped with a deodorisation system and other equipment.
Mr. Wang Tianyi, CEO of Everbright International, said, "Daxin Food Waste Project is the largest food waste treatment project invested and constructed by Everbright International in China, as well as a key environmental protection project in Shenyang City. Following meticulous preparatory works, the project commenced construction on the day following that on which the project agreement was signed, and it is expected to commence operation in Mid-2019. This demonstrates again Everbright International's speedy progress in project development. As of now, the Group has secured a total of 12 household and food waste integrated treatment projects. The integrated treatment of household and food waste is able to achieve synergies and resource sharing between the projects, which could facilitate the improvement of the local environment. It would also enhance operational efficiency and lower management and operational costs."
