Global Waste Investment Fact File: Sri Lanka

Next up in our series of Global Waste Investment Fact Files is the Sri Lanka edition. As of August 2017, AcuComm was listing six waste projects in the country. These have a total value of US$347 million or US$58 million each.


Key points from this Fact File:
  • Incineration (with energy recovery) is the leading project type, accounting for US$326 million or 94% of the total. This is followed by waste processing, accounting for US$15 million or 4% of the total.
  • The total estimated capacity of these projects is 0.9 million tonnes. This is equal to 148,219 tonnes per project on average.
  • This capacity is equal to 20% of Sri Lanka’s estimated annual waste generate at 4.4 million tonnes.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – Spain Recycling Centre

Construction of a recycling point for household waste

The Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning for Andalucia is currently in the process of constructing a recycling point for the collection of urban waste in the municipality of Bornos. The facility will receive up to 350 tonnes of special waste each year and will serve almost 8,000 people in the area.

Various types of waste to be received at the centre include gardening debris, oil waste, batteries, furniture/wood debris, electronic equipment, cardboard, glass and more.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – France WtE Facility

Modernisation and expansion of a WtE facility

SIDOMPE’s waste-to-energy (WtE) facility at Thiverval-Grignon is to be modernised as part of a new project undertaken by CNIM. The company, which operates three of the current waste incineration lines at the plant, will be replacing two lines and adding an additional fourth.

Martin GmbH will supply a two-track retraction grate for the new line.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – Japan Biomass Plant

Development of a 75 MW biomass plant

In an effort to generate 500 MW of renewable electricity by 2030, Kansai Electric Power Company (KEPCO) is planning to build a new biomass plant in Sakata City, Yamagata Prefecture.

The plant, which will use palm kernel shells and wood pellets as fuel, requires an environmental impact assessment to be carried out before plans can progress.

#Editors’Pick – Waste-to-energy facilities

India: Construction of a 500 tpd WtE plant

Last month, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) invited tenders for the construction of a new waste-to-energy plant in Karnataka. It will have a throughput of 500 tonnes of refuse-derived fuel (RDF) per day, generating 40 MW of electricity.

Canada: RFI for waste-to-energy technologies

Comox Strathcona Waste Management (CSWM) has issued a Request for Information (RFI) with the hope that qualified waste-to-energy technology vendors will be interested in participating in a feasibility study for managing municipal solid waste.

The costs of landfilling are high, so the company is keen to see whether there are financial, social and environmental benefits of apply WtE technologies instead.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – Turkey Biogas Plant

Construction of an animal waste-fuelled biogas plant

Work is now underway on a new biogas facility in Gaziantep, Turkey. The facility will produce about 60% of the electricity required to power the city’s rail system.

Once completed, the plant will act as a manure “recycling service”, producing biogas from the animal waste that is created by local farms. It will also produce liquid fertiliser.

Current plans are that work will be completed in August 2018.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – China WtE Plants

Installation of circulating fluidised bed boilers at five locations

ANDRITZ has received an order from Nine Dragons Paper (Holdings) Ltd to supply five circulating fluidised bed boilers for the company’s locations in Taicang, Quanzhou, Tongxin, Chongqing and Dongguan.

The boilers will utilise waste generated from the recycling of paper, including rejects and sludges. The high-pressure steam produced will help to generate electricity for the Nine Dragons paper mills.

Start-up is scheduled for the second half of 2018.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – China WtE Facility

Construction of a 1,000 tpd WtE facility

This week, China Everbright International announced that it has signed a concession agreement for a household waste-to-energy (WtE) project in Leshan City, Sichuan Province. The company will invest in and construct the facility under a build-operate-transfer (BOT) model.

Designed to have a daily household waste processing capacity of 1,000 tonnes, the facility is expected to generate 128,740,000 kWh of electricity annually. It will help to improve the environmental protection infrastructures and management of Leshan, as its population continues to grow.
