Development of the world’s largest thermal waste treatment plant
Martin GMBH has announced that its partner, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Environmental & Chemical Engineering (MHIEC), has been commissioned to equip the world’s largest thermal waste treatment plant, which is currently under development in Shanghai.
The facility will have eight furnace lines, with a total capacity of 6,800 tonnes per day. Each will be equipped with a 13.55 metre-wide Martin back-up grate and will produce 144 MW of electric power in total. Commissioning is scheduled for 2019.
This project can now be accessed in full for the next 7 days. To make sure your organisation doesn’t miss out on the key details, click here.
Next up in our series of Global Waste Investment Fact Files is the Japan edition. As of February 2017, AcuComm was listing 101 waste projects in the country, with a total value of US$11,258 million, or US$111 million each.
Key points from this Fact File:
- Incineration (with energy recovery) is the leading project type, accounting for US$8,542 million or 76% of the total. This is followed by integrated/mixed facilities, accounting for US$1,283 million or 11% of the total.
- The total estimated capacity of these projects is 13.2 million tonnes. This is equal to 130,607 tonnes per project on average.
- This capacity is equal to 30% of Japan’s estimated annual waste generation, at 44.3 million tonnes or 351kg per person.
- Waste investments totalling US$8,208 million are expected to become operational over the next few years. This is currently expected to peak in 2020 at US$3,502 million.

Myanmar: Construction of a WtE facility
Earlier this month, JFE Engineering announced that they had completed Myanmar’s first waste-to-energy (WtE) facility. The plant will incinerate 60 tonnes of waste each day, generating 0.76 MW of electricity.
Prior to the opening of the new facility, the city of Yangon was sending all of its 2,500 tonnes of waste per day to landfill.

Italy: Construction of a 100,000 tpa organic waste treatment facility
HERAmbiente, a part of Hera Group, is constructing a new organic waste treatment facility in Bologna. The relevant permits were obtained in March, which enabled the Notice to Proceed to be signed on 31st March.
Hitachi Zosen Inova is set to supply its Kompogas dry anaerobic digestion (AD) technology, with construction for these scheduled to begin in July 2017.
Construction of the plant was based on plans to treat organic waste generated in the region using methane fermentation technology. It is thought that it will be the largest dry AD plant in Europe.

Opening of an aluminium recycling plant
Ferrovial Services has recently opened a new aluminium recycling plant at the Centre for Environmental Management in Santa María de Palutordera, Barcelona.
The plant will process any aluminium that has been separated and recovered from other treatment plants and will aim to enhance the quality of recovered materials. It is then hoped that the aluminium can be sold directly to foundries without the need of further intermediaries.
The facility has a processing capacity of 2 tonnes per hour and estimates that at least 1,800 tonnes will be recovered this year.

Development of Albania’s first WtE facility
Earlier in April, the Ministry of the Environment announced that Albania’s first waste-to-energy (WtE) plant had been officially opened at Elbasan.
Established in partnership with Albtek Energy, the plant has a reported generating capacity of 2.85 MW, with steam generated from the process to be used in the agricultural sector. Total investment in the project had been estimated at €27.9 million.

Construction of a biomass pellet plant
Eskom is planning to undertake a project in collaboration with the SA Forestry Company Limited (Safcol) and the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) to build the company’s first biomass plant.
After making modifications to IDC’s pellets facility in Sabie to create a torrefied pellet plant, Eskom will use wood from Safcol’s forests as feedstock. The resulting pellets will then be delivered to Arnot Power Station, where they’ll burn with coal to generate electricity.
This project is now open to access in full for 7 days. For the contact details of all the key individuals involved, click here.
In the week ended 21st April 2017, AcuComm added 42 new or updated projects to our Business db, worth an estimated US$2,523m and feedstock capacity of just under 9.5 million tonnes.
This takes the total estimated investment value of projects to US$368.9 billion.
- MSW was the leading feedstock type reported on in the past week, accounting for an estimated 5.3 million tonnes, or 55.4% of the total. This was followed by organic waste with 1.6 million tonnes or 16.8%.
- The leading countries in the past week were the USA and the UK, with seven projects each. This was followed by India with four.

Construction of a 100,000 tpa organic waste treatment facility
This month, the building site for a new organic waste treatment facility in Bologna was opened. Expected to have a capacity of 100,000 tonnes per annum, the facility will produce enough biogas to heat around 5,000 homes, as well as produce 30,000 tonnes of compost to be sold to farms and garden centres.
Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI) will be supplying the Kompogas dry anaerobic digestion technology, which, when complete, is set to be the largest in Europe. Construction on these is scheduled to begin in July 2017.

Construction of a recycling plant and incineration facility
This month, Hitachi Zosen announced that it has formed a joint venture (S Environment Technology), which has won an order to build waste recycling and waste incineration facilities at Camp Hansen.
The recycling plant will run for five hours each day, with a throughput of 6.3 tonnes. The incineration plant will run for eight hours a day, with the two furnaces having a combined throughput of 32 tonnes.
Now available to access in full for 7 days, this project is not one to be missed. You can find out the latest details by clicking here.
