After banning garbage imports in 2018, the year 2019 in China dealt with environmental issues caused by a build-up of garbage, and improved waste management and recycling systems by issuing a plan requiring mandatory garbage sorting.
-Besides garbage sorting, China is also improving its garbage treatment facilities and disposal methods to achieve harm-free disposal as well as transform garbage into a resource. Through technological innovations, more cities and companies can dispose of garbage in a harmless way and use it as a resource. Good example is a kitchen waste disposal factory in Changsha in central China’s Hunan province where kitchen waste goes through sorting, crushing, sifting and mechanical pressing before being turned into waste oil, waste water and waste residue. Using advanced processing methods, the waste oil can be turned into mixed industrial oil and bio-diesel. Waste water, after anaerobic fermentation, can reach the discharging standard. Sewage gas produced during the process will be used for electricity generation or distilled into natural gas. Waste residue will feed maggots, which can be used as high-protein forage. As a result, every bit of kitchen waste is innocuously disposed of and used. At a cement kiln in Songzi in Central China’s Hubei province, a coordinating project for household garbage disposal has been put into operation. Household garbage will go through crushing, sifting and winnowing procedures. Eventually it will be sorted into three categories — combustible, noncombustible and metal. Combustible materials will become fuel replacements for cement production, while noncombustible items will be ground and dried, then made into raw material for cement production. Metal will also be recycled and used. Cement produced in the factory has been widely used for construction of highways and bridges.
Here at ECOTECH CHINA WASTE we want to support the latest technological innovations and advanced processing methods that allow the use of garbage as a resource. This is the perfect opportunity for our visitors to discover some surprising ways to convert waste into valuable resources thanks to the latest technological advancements in environmental industry.
ECOTECH CHINA WASTE (SHANGHAI) is one of the largest international exhibitions in Asia for solid waste treatment and waste gas treatment. Over the course of five years, the event has received international recognition as one of the leading trading and networking platforms in Asia for waste treatment.
It is expected that ECOTECH CHINA WASTE (SHANGHAI) will cover more than 32,000 square meters of exhibition space and attract more than 500 exhibitors and 32,000 visitors from home and abroad. ECOTECH CHINA WASTE offers a perfect opportunity to explore a wide spectrum of products, including solid waste treatment and recycling equipment, waste gas treatment, waste management, sludge treatment, environmental engineering and soil remediation technology, allowing interaction between upstream and downstream enterprises.
The edition 2019 of ECOTECH CHINA WASTE (SHANGHAI) took place on June 3-5 2019, at Shanghai National Convention and Exhibition Center. Co-organized by All China Environment Federation and CHC Expo, the exhibition was complemented by 20 conferences attended by more than 100 industry professors.
As part of WieTec exhibition platform, ECOTECH CHINA WASTE (SHANGHAI) is taking place at the same time as six other WieTec exhibitions: AQUATECH CHINA, FLOWTECH CHINA (SHANGHAI), BUILDEX CHINA (SHANGHAI), COMFORTECO, ECOTECH CHINA AIR (SHANGHAI) and Intelligence & Environment China. We anticipate that WieTec 2020 will cover more than 250,000 square meters of exhibition space, and gather more than 3,500 exhibitors and 120,000 visitors from home and abroad. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
