Providing Consultation for Municipal Waste Incineration Power Generation Project in Zhuzhou

The regions where Changsha City, Zhuzhou City, and Xiangtan City are located are the core areas of economic development in Hunan Province and are also one of the key urban agglomerations for the implementation of the national strategy of central China's rise. In 2007, the State Council approved the "Chang-Zhu-Tan Urban Agglomeration" as a "comprehensive reform pilot area for building a nationally resource-saving and environmentally friendly society."

The Zhuzhou City Urban Waste Incineration Power Generation Project is located in Changshi Village, Tongtang Bay Street, Shifeng District, Zhuzhou City, covering an area of 176.7 mu. The total scale is designed to process 1,500 tons of domestic waste per day, with the first phase processing 1,000 tons of domestic waste per day, with a total investment of approximately 570 million yuan. This project is the first waste incineration plant in Hunan Province to adopt advanced domestic and foreign mechanical grate incineration technology. The flue gas treatment adopts the "semi-dry method + activated carbon adsorption + bag filter" treatment technology. Flue gas, leachate, and fly ash treatment are designed according to national emission standards, with the key emission indicators of flue gas meeting EU emission standards. The project generates approximately 150 million kWh of electricity per year, saving over 300,000 tons of standard coal annually and reducing carbon emissions by 90,000 tons.

In March 2008, the Zhuzhou City Urban Management and Administrative Law Enforcement Bureau, as the authorized government body, selected Hong Kong's Chong Chi Group through a bidding process as the investor for this project. The project is invested, constructed, and operated through the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) model with a franchise period of 30 years, after which it will be transferred unconditionally. In December 2009, the Hunan Provincial Development and Reform Commission approved the project. In May 2011, the Zhuzhou Municipal Government hired Ktrue as the consulting agency to provide technical advice to the government and consulting services for the implementation of the franchise operation. In January 2012, the project officially signed the "Franchise Agreement," and in May of the same year, construction officially began. The project was ignited and put into operation in October 2014.

In this project, both the government and investors attach great importance to the demonstration of major technical schemes. Before the signing of the franchise agreement, the government commissioned our company to hire a high-level domestic expert group in the field of waste incineration power generation to form a project technical review expert group. This group provided review and consultation opinions on major technical issues such as the process technology scheme and core equipment selection proposed by the investor, assisting government departments in technical oversight of the franchise project. The main process equipment meets the government's requirements for technical advancement and reliability, as well as the economic requirements of the investor. The Zhuzhou City Urban Waste Incineration Power Generation Project took nearly 4 years from the start of the tender to the signing of the franchise agreement, with a significant time cost. One of the main reasons was the insufficient technical scheme demonstration in the early stage of the project. For example, during the negotiation period, the process route changed from fluidized bed to mechanical grate incineration. This is one of the experiences and lessons learned from the implementation of this project, that is, it is necessary for government departments to hire professional technical consultants to participate in and assist in the implementation of franchise operations, while also attaching great importance to and solidifying the early-stage technical demonstration work of the project.
