Hong Kong’s waste crisis opens doors to U.S. waste management firms. To address Hong Kong’s waste management crisis, the Hong Kong government recently published Waste Blueprint 2035, which outlines specific steps the territory will take to dramatically increase recycling and materials recovery, reduce waste flows into landfills and ultimately reach a zero-landfill target.

The recently announced 2022-23 budget bolstered this effort by allocating US$670 million for waste management programs. The Hong Kong government is focused on procuring advanced technologies and equipment in the following areas:
• Waste-to-resources/energy systems and technologies
• Advanced refuse transfer station technologies
• Landfill management/extension and optimization technologies
• High efficiency incinerators and associated technologies.
• Waste recycling and on-site separation systems using AI and robotic sorting technologies.
• Landfill and waste-water treatment systems
• Smart collection and transportation systems
