Recycling Centre saturates, resulting in 3000 tons of food waste possibly being transported to landfills

by Admin on Jan 15, 2019 in Uncategorized

The development of converting food waste to biogas and compost is encountering hurdles, hence most of the food waste will go to landfills in the future. C&I (Commercial & Industry) sectors are not willing to transport the food waste to the organic recycling center due to the high cost of transportation. Meanwhile, since the pig farmers reject to use food waste as the feed due to the recent swine fever issue, the handling methods of local food waste become fewer and fewer. In addition, the governmental organic recycling center can only handle 200 tons of food waste per day which is much lower than 3000 tons food waste produced per day in HK,

so the final destination of food waste can only be the landfill. The food waste cannot be converted, then causing pressure to the landfill. The EPA said that they would provide free technical assistance and staff training to industry and business communities, motivating them to transport the food waste to organic recycling center and ensuring the processes meet the hygiene standard.

According to Monitoring of Solid Waste in Hong Kong Waste Statistics for 2017, of 3762 tonnes of solid waste disposed of at the strategic landfills every day, more than a third were food waste. The Organic Resources Recovery Centre Phase 1 (ORRC1) could treat 200 tons of

 organic waste (mostly food waste) per day for the production of biogas and compost. And each phase of the ORRC would avoid landfilling of about 200 and 300 tons of waste every day respectively, hence contribute to extending the useful life of landfills in Hong Kong.

20th April 2018, Central and Western District Green and Technology Carnival was held in Lok Sin Tong Leung Kau Kui College. As an environmental technology company, our machine gained affirmation and recognition from headmaster, thus being invited to participate in the activity. This carnival was part of the promotion programme "Technology and Environmental Protection at Our Home" sponsored by Central and Western District Council, introducing residents in the district understanding the importance of environmental protection and technology through this carnival. The 

atmosphere of the carnival was keeping warm and high, attracting more than 1000 people of both local residents and other school students to attend.
Central and Western District is the most prosperous part of HK, with the highest average monthly income among 18 districts. Generally, local residents have relatively high acceptance of environmental protection and technology. And the numerous environmental technology activities get fully support from government. To some extent, the development within the district could reflect the coming trend of HK.

In the activity, our next-generation household

food waste machine was displayed which caught lots of attention from visitors. They showed great interest, and they were looking forward the launching of this household machine. 
We hope that our household food waste machine could go into everyone and every family in the near future.
