In Hong Kong, our solutions to turn the tide revolve around reducing carbon emissions in line with the government’s four major decarbonization strategies and measures – net-zero electricity generation, energy savings and green buildings, green transport and waste reduction.
On net-zero electricity generation
Through our NENT, WENT & SENTX landfills, the gas extracted can be treated as town gas or transformed into electricity and put into the grid.
Through T.Park, heat produced from the sludge incineration process is recovered and converted into electricity.
At O.Park1, energy is being recovered from food waste using anaerobic digestion.
On energy saving and green buildings
With Southa, we help our clients to decarbonize their activities with our services (engineering, construction, operation and maintenance) relying on digital solutions that provide deep insights and allow us to recommend and implement energy-savings.
In Kai Tak, our district cooling plants and network provide an energy efficient centralised system to cool down nearby buildings.
On green transport
At the transfer stations managed by Veolia, the majority of them transport waste through marine vessels instead of trucks, which contributes to nearly 50% of CO2 savings.
On waste reduction
Through the Ecospace-Kum Shing Joint Venture, chemical and clinical waste are being treated and reduced to a minimum volume with no impact on the environment.
At T.Park, the sludge incineration process reduces the original sludge volume by up to 90%, substantially easing the pressure on the landfill loading.
At O.Park1, food waste is being transformed into organic fertilizer and methane gas through anaerobic digestion and composting.
Through Waylung, the implementation of smart collection helps to access to more recyclables and favour the development of a circular economy.
Together, Veolia is determined to contribute to human progress with our stakeholders.
