Waste Management

Intro Sample...


The EcoPark will come into operation in late 2006. Additionally, we will continue to encourage the development of recycling technology through the Environment and Conservation Fund and the Innovation and Technology Fund. In doing so, we will not only reduce pressure on our waste facilities, but also conserve resources and jump-start a circular economy.
Throw less, Pay less
The core of our comprehensive strategy is the "polluter-pays" principle. We propose to introduce producer responsibility schemes (PRSs) that hold the manufacturers, importers, retailers and consumers responsible for what they produce and consume. We aim to introduce to the Legislative Council the Product Eco-responsibility Bill in 2006 to provide a legal framework for PRSs. With PRSs in place, we can consider introducing landfill disposal bans so as to make better use of our landfills as the final repository of unavoidable and properly treated wastes. We also propose introducing legislation on waste charging by 2007 as a direct economic incentive to avoid and reduce waste.
Debates, discussions and concerns expressed by business people, community leaders, academics, non-government organisations (NGOs), government representatives, students and members of the general public came to conclusions as follows:

    Mechanical pulping There are two major mechanical pulps, thermo mechanical pulp (TMP) and groundwood pulp (GW). In the TMP process, wood is chipped and then fed into large steam-heated refiners where the chips are squeezed and fibreized between two steel discs. In the groundwood process, debarked logs are fed into grinders where they are pressed against rotating stones and fibreized. Mechanical pulping does not remove the lignin, so the yield is very high, >95%, but also causes paper made from this pulp to yellow and become brittle over time. Mechanical pulps have rather short fibre lengths a
