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
Tai’an has recently upgraded its waste incineration plant and will soon implement a number of improvements to its biogas plant for restaurant and kitchen waste in the framework of the NAMA project.
The project boundary of Tai’an City includes Taishan and Daiyue Districts, covering an area of 130 square kilometres. The Tai’an Environmental Sanitation Office under the Municipal Management Bureau is the authority responsible for waste management in the city.
