Based on the “first two year update of climate change in People’s Republic of China (2016)”, 1.3% of the total Chinese CO2 emissions originate from the waste sector, amounting to 158 Mt CO2e. By 2025, China’s rapid urbanisation is expected to reach 1 billion urban citizens and, subsequently, to an estimated annual emissions reduction potential from Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) of 236.3 Mt CO2e.
With its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), China pledges to achieve the following by 2030: reduce CO2 emissions per unit of GDP by 60-65% based on 2005 levels, increase the share of non-fossil fuels in primary energy consumption to around 20% based on 2005 levels.
Following its development targets and its NDC towards a low-carbon society, China is strengthening its efforts to reduce GHG emissions and increase the usage of urban waste for the production of energy. The China Integrated Waste Management NAMA (IWM NAMA) has been commissioned by NAMA Facility1 and implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ2) GmbH since September 2017, to induce changes within the sector that go beyond the improvement of waste management and set the basis for a transformative change in the sector. Changes will be made through technical assistance to support the implementation of IWM systems in (at least) three demonstration municipalities, policy advice, tailor-made capacity building and the mobilisation of the private sector and public investment in the replication of the demonstrated integrated solutions in other municipalities.
EUBCE is the most important international conference in the field of biomass. For more than 30 years, it has been committed to research and development and served as an annual meeting place for biomass professionals. This time, the “Sino-Europe Low-Carbon Integrated Waste Management Seminar” will be jointly organised by EUBIA, ETA and GIZ IWM NAMA project, as an important event of EUBCE to promote the exchange between the Chinese and European waste management industries, especially exploring low-carbon waste integrated management.
