  • Hong Kong choking on food waste 香港的廚餘危機

    http://www.scmp.com/video Hong Kong may be considered a gourmet's paradise but it's also becoming known as a city that wastes excessive amounts of food. According to the Environmental Protection Department, about 3,300 tonnes of food is thrown away daily. That means each person on average wastes about half-a-kilogram a day. Because food waste is non-recycable, it is dumped into our rapidly filling landfills. Along with the 9,300 tonnes of municipal rubbish produced every day, the city's landfills could reach capacity as soon as 2013. The government plans to build more incinerators but is facing opposition due to its hazardous effects. While people can take immediate steps to reduce food waste, technology is helping to alleviate the problem. We meet two companies who have install...

    Rubbish, garbage, trash, waste. No, we’re not talking about recent events in Legco but the 9,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste Hong Kong produces every day, meaning that everyone who lives here is, on average, responsible for 1.36 kilogrammes. Up to 99% of local solid waste that is recycled is then exported for further processing overseas. The problem is even worse than usual this year as torrential rainstorms have led to Hong Kong’s beaches being inundated with marine waste from the mainland. And then there’s the issue of electronic or e-waste, not all of which is our own. Also with us to talk about these issues is Christine Loh, acting Secretary for the Environment.

    Turning Pallets to Mulch: One Company Tackles Hong Kong's Wood Waste By DAI Xintong & WANG Qiang HONG KONG -- On a sprawling 5,000-square-meter plot of land in Eco Park, the Hong Kong Hung Wai Wooden Board Company is struggling to keep up with recycling the thousands of tons of wood waste generated each year in Hong Kong. A room is stocked full of flammable pellets used for heating and mounds of mulched wood litter the grounds of the first and only wood recycle company in Hong Kong.

    No one would call Hong Kong one of the world's greener cities. In fact it's a place that sometimes seems to equate conspicuous and even wasteful consumption with prosperity. But as landfills are getting filled, and refuse is continuing to pile up, the government and green groups are looking at new ways to handle solid waste, ranging from new charges, to an reward programme.

  • A waste-to-energy journey in Hong Kong

    Hong Kong produces approximately 1,200 tonnes of sludge daily. “Sludge” is a term used to describe the semi-solid by-product of sewage treatment. Previous to the opening of the T Park sludge treatment facility located at Tsang Tsui near Tuen Mun, Hong Kong only had 11 sewage treatment works, with sewage treatment byproduct going directly to landfill. T Park’s advanced sludge incinerators help reduce the sludge by 90% thereby disposing only 10% of the remaining sludge into the adjacent West New Territories landfill.

While people can take immediate steps to reduce food waste, technology is helping to alleviate the problem. We meet two companies who have installed a 'GoMixer' machine that can almost magically churn left over food into water. 香港是美食天堂,但同時也製造出份量驚人的廚餘。根據環保署數據,香港每天製造的廚餘高達3,300噸。換言之,每人每天平均製造半公斤廚餘。 由於廚餘無法循環再用,只能傾倒在堆填區;加上市內每天製造的9,300噸垃圾,預料本港堆填區將於2013年飽和。港府計劃加建多個焚化爐,但因其對環境會產生不良影響,故遭到外界反對。 要減少廚餘,除了市民自動自覺,科技也可以紓緩問題。有兩家公司便安裝了名為「GoMixer」的機器,可以將廚餘化成水。

Wong, 25, said currently the company has suspended operations for two months because "there is little space for the newly-arrived wood waste." "The space is being filled up with wood pellets" Wong said. "Few people in Hong Kong want to buy those wood pellets." Fees to transport the recycled pellets out of Hong Kong are too expensive, Wong said. To cut the company's budget, Wong reduced his workforce to 10 employees. Although the company has been losing HK$50,000 per month since he took over a little more than three years ago, Wong said he still strongly believes in wood recycling and hopes the city's government won't let his business eventually rot away.
