Quarterly Research Topic 2

Waste Management in China

There have been many interesting innovations and challenges that China is facing in their waste management strategy. The purpose of the research report is to identify where these challenges lie, where some opportunities are for foreign waste management enterprises, and how Chinese government policy frames the attitude China has towards municipal waste management.

A common theme in municipal waste management throughout all sectors was the challenge of sorting the waste in a way that makes it possible to reuse the waste in one way or another. This could mean potentially reusing the products through extracting valuable resources, through changing the chemical composition of the waste to something completely different, or more traditional recycling schemes.

We found through researching the Communist Party’s policy that waste management was taken very seriously at the highest levels of governance. It is something that comes up during every five-year-plan at the very top, and is heavily invested in by provinces and cities and districts all the way to the bottom.

This report provides a general overview of the waste management marketing in China, municipal waste and its related national and regional policies, The Food Waste Industry in China, hazardous waste and e-waste in China. Furthermore, it will highlight waste management methods such as anaerobic digestion, waste sorting, mineral extraction from electronic products and other strategies to provide SMEs within the industry a guide on how China is moving forward with their waste management strategy in the present and future.

What happened in the year 1421?

From 1421 to 1423, during the Ming Dynasty of China under Emperor Zhu Di (朱棣) the fleets of Admiral Zheng He (鄭和), commanded by the Chinese captains, discovered Australia, New Zealand, the Americas, Antarctica, the Northeast Passage; and circumnavigated Greenland.

Due to this endeavour we can conclude that “1421 is the year that the Chinese discover the world”.
