Giant Waste-to-Energy Power Plant

Giant Waste-to-Energy Power Plant


Two Danish architecture firms, Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects and Gottlieb Paludan Architects, have won a competition to design the world’s largest waste-to-energy power plant. The Shenzhen East Waste-to-Energy Plant is supposed to begin operation by 2020 in Shenzhen, China.

The plant is expected to burn 5,000 tons of garbage per day. This is about a third of the waste generated each year by Shenzhen’s 20 million inhabitants.

The plant is designed as a large circular building. Two thirds of its 66,000 m² roof will be covered with photovoltaic panels to generate the plant’s own sustainable energy supply. The building will be surrounded by a landscaped park and will offer a series of visitor facilities, including a looping walkway to the rooftop.

    That is very good, but I think that first it must be clear what the emissions of CO2, CH4 are. The environment must be considered for this project.
