SIIC to build 3.04b yuan waste treatment project in Shanghai

MAINBOARD-LISTED SIIC Environment Holdings on Monday night said it is building a waste treatment project in Shanghai with an expected investment of around 3.04 billion yuan (S$590.1 million).

Its indirect unit Shanghai SIIC Baojin'gang Environmental Resources Technology Co had obtained approval from the Shanghai Baoshan District Development and Reform Commission to be the project company, the water treatment firm said in a regulatory update.

Called the "Baoshan Renewable Energy Utilization Center Project", the project is located in Shanghai's Baoshan district and integrates dry waste incineration and wet waste disposal in an individual facility.

It is expected to be the first innocuous domestic waste treatment facility built after the implementation of mandatory waste sorting practices in Shanghai.
