The World Bank Loan China Plastic Waste Reduction Project - Ningbo Urban Domestic Waste Intelligent Classification, Collection, and Recycling Demonstration Project (referred to as the "World Bank Phase II Project") was officially launched in mid month.
The second phase of the World Bank project takes plastic waste treatment as the breakthrough point, with a total investment of 1.515 billion yuan, of which 150 million US dollars are applied for a World Bank loan. The main content of the project includes three sub projects: policy work and mechanism strengthening, smart solid waste management system and plastic recycling, project management and capacity building. The project plans to build one platform (smart management platform for household waste), two centers (smart management center for waste classification and electronic dismantling center for waste electrical appliances), three disposal plants (plastic waste centralized sorting and deep processing plant, large waste/construction decoration waste disposal plant, and municipal resource recycling base sewage treatment plant), and six recyclable material sorting centers over a period of five years, At the same time, 4000 intelligent recycling bins for all categories of garbage classification will be landed.
In 2013, Ningbo City collaborated with the World Bank to implement the first Asian urban household waste classification loan project. A complete household waste classification, collection, transportation, and disposal system was established in the central urban area of Ningbo, improving the level of waste reduction, harmlessness, and resource utilization in Ningbo. This project is known as a typical case study of China and the World Bank's cooperation in jointly addressing climate change, It has promoted the overall work of domestic waste classification in our city to continue to be at the forefront of the whole province in the country.
The management of household waste and the reduction of plastic pollution are public welfare products that transcend national boundaries and are of great significance for global environmental governance and green development. "At the project kickoff meeting held last week, World Bank project manager Frank van Walden stated that in the upcoming second phase of the project, the bank will make good use of the" output based incentive mechanism "to support Ningbo as a pathfinder for China's waste management, Promote waste classification to achieve high standards of refined management, and explore replicable and promotable "Ningbo experience".
The goal of the World Bank Phase II project is to achieve precise classification of domestic waste sources and the recycling of plastic waste to cover 1.2 million households in the central urban area of Ningbo by 2027; The precise classification rate at the source and the recycling rate of urban household waste have been significantly improved; The proportion of plastic recyclables in the total amount of recyclables, and the proportion of plastic recycling that can be recycled after dismantling household appliances reaches 20%; The plastic entering the municipal kitchen waste treatment plant is reduced by 50%.
