|Description||DYNAGREEN WASTE TO ENERGY PROJECT|
|Objectives and Scope||Increased production of energy from technically efficient and environmentally sustainable waste-to-energy (WTE) power plants in small and medium sized cities in the PRC.|
|Status of Development Objectives||To be evaluated.|
|Status of Operation/Construction||Both the A-loan and CL-loan have been fully disbursed, to fund seven WTE sub-projects namely Tianjin, Huizhou, Anshun, Bengbu, Bobai, Hong'an and Shantou Projects. To date, except Hong'an Project is still under construction, all other six projects have commenced operations.|
|Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
ADB's country partnership strategy (CPS) for the PRC is based on three development pillars: inclusive growth, environmentally sustainable growth, and regional cooperation and integration. The CPS also sets out four priority sectors: natural resources and agriculture, energy, transport, and urban development. The CPS specifically states that ADB's non-sovereign operations will continue to finance catalytic projects, focusing on innovative financing solutions and demonstration projects for infrastructure investment, particularly in clean energy, urban environmental protection, and social infrastructure.
The project will address energy and urban development sectors to leverage ADB's comparative strengths and expertise through provision of finance to a non-sovereign client in a new sector where commercial finance is still scarce. It will thus contribute to the CPS objective of supporting environmentally sustainable growth in the PRC.
The project is fully consistent with the CPS and will complement ADB's overall support for urban development in the PRC through investment projects and knowledge products. In particular, the project benefits from public sector operations policy advice and lessons learned from public sector waste management projects. The project is consistent with ADB's Energy Policy. Under the policy, ADB's investments will focus on energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, as well as expansion of energy access. The policy states that support for renewable energy projects will be prioritized and broadened with the objective of creating a framework that makes investing in renewable energy commercially viable. The project is in line with ADB's efforts to strengthen non-sovereign operations and has a significant demonstration impact as the first ADB intervention with a public enterprise to take over the municipal government responsibility of providing waste management infrastructure.
|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
Since 2002, WTE plants in the PRC have been required to have a full environmental assessment. The sites for Dynagreen's municipal WTE plants are selected in coordination with the respective municipal governments to minimize impacts on the environment and nearby communities. Emission levels of major air pollutants are found to comply with PRC national standards. Dioxin emission from Dynagreen's WTE plants meet the European Union's air emission limit values for waste incineration plants .
Dynagreen's environmental and social management system incorporates measures to avoid, minimize, and mitigate the potential adverse environmental and social impacts of its subprojects. During due diligence, the audit confirmed that Dynagreen was satisfactorily implementing its existing environmental and social management system (ESMS). The company enhanced its pre-existing ESMS to meet the requirements of ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009) (SPS). To ensure compliance with ADB's SPS, Dynagreen is required to prepare an initial environmental examination and a resettlement or land acquisition planning report for each subproject and submit these to ADB for review and approval, and implement the approved plans. Dynagreen is also required to submit annual monitoring reports. ADB will ensure that the investment documentation includes appropriate provisions requiring Dynagreen to comply with national labor laws and to take specific measures (including in relation to contractors), in compliance with ADB's Social Protection Strategy. Dynagreen is required to report regularly to ADB on compliance with such measures. A no gender element classification is assigned for the proposed project.
|Involuntary Resettlement||Land acquisition is normally carried out by local governments before concessions are awarded to Dynagreen. The Dynagreen ESMS includes resettlement policies and procedures that are intended to ensure all projects are screened and necessary resettlement or land acquisition planning is undertaken consistent with the requirements of national laws and in accordance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement. During project construction and operation, Dynagreen is required to implement social programs consistent with its ESMS and corporate social responsibility initiatives.|
|Indigenous Peoples||The ESMS provides the necessary screening procedures to ensure adverse impacts to indigenous peoples are identified early. Since the projects are located in small and medium-sized cities, indigenous peoples safeguards are not likely to be triggered.|
|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation||During due diligence and review of pre-existing ESMS, interviews with Dynagreen's staff at corporate and project level were undertaken to understand the company's stakeholder identification and engagement approach. As a continuing process, Dynagreen is required to engage the community and, as appropriate, assist in social development initiatives. For all WTE projects financed by ADB, it is a requirement that consultation and participation will be undertaken in accordance with the ESMS and social planning.|
