Date, time & venue

2018-05-07;7:00pm - 8:00pm;Chan Yat Mei Sophie Room – 9/F

Programme Highlights:-

Alongside waste reduction at source and recycling initiatives, waste to energy facilities adopting advanced incineration technology form an indispensable and integral part of Hong Kong’s overall waste management strategy.

The Environmental Protection Department (EPD), after going through an open tender process, awarded a contract to design, build and operate the Integrated Waste Management Facilities (IWMF) Phase 1 in November 2017.  In addition to an incinerator system with a maximum treatment capacity of 3,000 tonnes per day of municipal solid waste (MSW), the IWMF Phase 1 will also have a mechanical sorting and recycling facility that can recover useful resources from 200 tonnes of MSW received per day.

Mr Yu would give an overview of the design and contraction of the project, with particular focus on the seawall construction and reclamation, environmental and ecological enhancement measures, and the design and construction of the incineration and energy recovery systems.



Mr YU Wang-pong is currently the Principal Environmental Protection Officer at the Environmental Protection Department of HKSAR Government overseeing waste infrastructure programmes.  Mr Yu has a BSc (Engineering) and is a member of HKIE (Environmental and Civil disciplines).  He has over 30 years of experience in various environmental and infrastructure projects and is currently responsible for the implementation of the Integrated Waste Management Facilities (IWMF) Phase 1 to be built on an artificial island and a trial scheme for anaerobic co-digestion of food waste with sewage sludge at Tai Po Sewage Treatment Works, as well as overseeing a study on planning of territory-wide plan and strategy for provision of waste treatment and bulk transfer facilities to meet Hong Kong’s long term sustainable needs.
