The NAMA Support Project China Integrated Waste Management (IWM NAMA) project aims to reduce GHG emissions of China’s waste sector and induce a transformational change in the way waste is handled through increasing the attractiveness of IWM and waste-to-energy solutions as financially sustainable low-carbon investment options. The supporting measures include:
- Technical support regarding optimizing the efficiency of waste treatment facilities
- Policy recommendations on upgrading an integrated waste management system
- Capacity-building on “best practices of IWM”, introduction of EPR, waste prevention/3Rs etc.
- Awareness-raising to promote waste segregation at source
Bengbu actively develops its waste management system to have a waste-to-energy (WtE) facility as part of the NAMA support project. In the scope of the project, the city also aims to recover biogas from organic waste at an anaerobic digestion plant (in construction) and to close material cycles through a system of recycling stations.
The project boundary of Bengbu City is the urban area including Laoshan, Yuhui, Huai Shang and Longzihu Districts, covering an area of 614 square kilometres. The Bengbu Housing, Urban and Rural Development Bureau is responsible for the city’s appearance and its environmental sanitation.
