Binnies awarded contract for consultancy services for planning and development of Hong Kong’s second Integrated Waste Management Facility
Binnies has been appointed by the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) of the Government of the Hong Kong SAR, China to provide multidisciplinary engineering and consultancy services for the investigation, design and construction of Hong Kong’s second integrated waste management facility (I･PARK2) project, helping Hong Kong moving towards a new era of sustainable waste management.
The development of I･PARK2 plays an important role in supporting Hong Kong to move away from the reliance on landfills as set out in the “Waste Blueprint for Hong Kong 2035”, announced by the Government in 2021.
I･PARK2 will be equipped with advanced technologies to ensure the highest level of environmental performance and will effectively harness the energy and resources generated from municipal solid waste for various beneficial utilisations.
“The construction of I･PARK2 is an integral part of the Government’s long-term plan to meet Hong Kong’s solid waste management needs,” said Andy Kwok, Managing Director of Binnies Hong Kong. “We are thrilled to support and collaborate with EPD to deliver a world-class waste-to-energy facility to realise Hong Kong Government’s commitment to being an environmentally sustainable city.”
Binnies has assembled a team of global experts with worldwide experience in waste-to-energy technologies, power generation and resource recovery to deliver this significant project.
“In addition to energy and resource recovery, I･PARK2 will integrate with public amenities to fulfil EPD’s vision of developing the waste management facility into a social asset to the benefit of the local and wider communities. Public engagement and architectural design will be an integral part of project development,” said James Chan, Binnies’ Project Director for I･PARK2.
Binnies has a long history in supporting the Hong Kong government to tackle the city’s urban waste management challenges. Other than strategic landfill development, Binnies is also involved in various waste management projects such as the first biochar production plant from yard waste in Hong Kong and the largest food waste pre-treatment facility to support co-digestion of food waste and sewage sludge.
