|Description||MUNICIPAL WASTE TO ENERGY PROJECT|
|Objectives and Scope||Under the Project, the Project Sponsor aims to develop and invest in WTE projects and treat daily 8,000 tons of MSW from 16 million of urban population, and to generate annually approximately 800 gigawatt-hours of green electricity by 2013.|
|Status of Development Objectives||
The project introduced a new method to improve the efficiency of MSW management and the electricity supply, creating better living standards in the cities of Jinan, Suzhou, Zhenjiang, Pizhou, and Sanya.
The project offered a strong model for private sector participation in WTE projects via PPP model in medium-sized municipalities.
The project has positively impacted and contributed significantly to private sector development and ADB strategic objectives by having good demonstration effects, setting new standards, and improving the market.
|Status of Operation/Construction||ADB loan proceeds were channeled to five project companies, namely in Jinan, Zhenjiang, Suzhou, Pizhou, and Sanya. By 2017, ADB intervention had resulted in a daily waste processing capacity of 5,800 tons, generated 956 million kWh of green electricity, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 1.2 million tons.|
|Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The project is ADB''s first private sector MSW treatment project and aligns fully with ADB''s Strategy 2020. Its pioneering features embody ADB's country and energy sector policies and private sector operations strategies.|
|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
|Environmental Aspects||The Project Sponsor has established an Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS). Screening of individual projects and project implementation are undertaken in accordance with the ESMS.|
|Involuntary Resettlement||Social due diligence reports covering land acquisition audits and resettlement plan were prepared in alignment with ADB's involuntary resettlement policy and PRC laws and regulations.|
|Indigenous Peoples||As all five WTE plants are located in peri-urban areas, the project did not significantly impact ethnic minorities who are considered indigenous peoples.|
|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation||Local governments consulted with communities and households affected by land acquisition and resettlement throughout the course of land acquisition and resettlement activities and a grievance redress mechanism was established to address any concerns. The WTE plants continue to conduct dialogues with neighboring communities and carry out community development programs during operation.|
