  • The second phase of the Laogang Renewable Resources Recycling Center in Shanghai marked its first year of operations on July 1.
  • Its construction was to deal with the ever-growing waste treatment demand posed by the city, which produced about 28,000 metric ton domestic waste a day.
  • Measuring 188,600 square meters, the recycling center is the largest domestic waste treatment facility in the world, with eight incineration furnaces that can burn around 10,000 metric tons of waste per day.
