|Description||AGRICULTURAL AND MUNICIPAL WASTE TO ENERGY PROJECT|
|Objectives and Scope||
The project objectives are to successfully implement Waste to Energy (WTE) projects and to apply the use of clean, reliable, and safe Municipal Solid Waste(MSW) treatment in secondary cities in the PRC, where WTE infrastructure is lacking and demand is not fully met. Specifically, this project is to
(i) support a series of medium-sized WTE plants using clean technologies built through PPPs, (ii) introduce state-of-the-art technologies; (iii) address environmental problems by replacing landfills; (iv) enabl ADB to fund multiple municipal WTE projects otherwise difficult to assist
directly; and (v) reduce greenhouse gas emissions by eliminating methane gas emissions from landfills and replacing the use of fossil fuels for power generation.
|Status of Development Objectives||As of 30 June 2018, CEEEL had 19 WTE projects in operation. ADB funded projects-Nanjing and Wujiang WTE plants, are capable of processing 4,000 tons and 1,500 tons of household waste daily, respectively.|
|Status of Operation/Construction||ADB loan proceeds were channeled to project companies in Nanjing and Wujiang, and the constructions for both sites were completed by Apr 2017.|
|Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
ADB's country partnership strategy for the PRC is based on four development thrusts:
(i) inclusive growth and balanced development, (ii) resource efficiency and environmental sustainability, (iii) regional cooperation and public goods, and (iv) an environment conducive to private sector development.
ADB provides project-based financial assistance and focuses on pioneering projects with innovative contractual and financial structuring to encourage private sector participation, enhance management expertise, and improve corporate governance.
ADB's strategy towards Energy sector is to meet energy security, facilitate the transition to a low-carbon economy, and achieve ADB's vision of a region free of povert. The WTE plants that ADB sponsors will generate renewable energy in an economically and environmentally sustainable manner. The Project also promotes energy efficiency with advanced and cleaner technologies.
|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
|Environmental Aspects||The company implements its corporate level Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS) which is cascaded and adopted by the different business units. At the subproject/subsidiary level, both the Nanjing and Wujiang waste-to-energy (WTE) plants adopted and implemented the ESMS with the corresponding standard operating procedures and checklists for the daily operations of the WTE facilities. The WTE plants continue to implement the environmental management plan and monitor the various parameters|
|Involuntary Resettlement||Construction of the 2 WTE subprojects did not lead to any economic displacement although development of Wujiang WTE led to physical displacement of about 20 households (79 persons) who have been compensated and have already transferred to their replacement apartments. No issues or complaints were raised in relation to land acquisition undertaken by the local government for the two WTE sites.|
|Indigenous Peoples||No indigenous peoples and vulnerable households were impacted by the construction and operation of the 2 WTE plants.|
|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation||Grievance mechanism both at the community and workers' level are operational and managed by the Administration Management Department of both plants. There is close coordination between surrounding villages and the company. To date, no grievances have been raised in relation to the operation of both sites. CEIL conducts semi-annual meeting with workers to ensure that all workers' concerns and issues are discussed and properly addressed.|
