Today four Dutch experts in waste-to-energy and water treatment systems are joining the Shenzhen municipal government in a workshop aimed at providing Shenzhen hands-on advice on how to implement and optimize the energy supply and distribution plan of the Low-Carbon Zone in Longgang district, Shenzhen.
The experts are from NL Agency, Waternet, and the Amsterdam Waste & Energy Company. The latter operates the world’s most efficient waste-to-energy facility, partly because of close collaboration with the neighbouring water treatment facility. The workshop, co-organised by the Netherlands Office of Science and Technology in Guangzhou, is part of the ongoing Low-Carbon Zone collaboration government-to-government (G2G) between The Netherlands and Shenzhen as a follow up to the large scale expert meeting that was held earlier this year. The workshop was preceded by site visits to existing power plants and water treatment facilities.
Tomorrow, architects from The Netherlands will advise the Shenzhen Institute of Building Research on the designs of the pilot projects, some of which are to be realized before June next year. Please check back for more updates.
