To gather experience and information on collection of source separated food waste and the application of biological technology to recycle food waste in Hong Kong, the Environmental Protection Department developed the Pilot Composting Plant (KBPCP) at the Kowloon Bay Waste Recycling Centre (KBWRC) in mid-2008.
The Pilot Plant consists of an enclosed pre-treatment area, two composting drum units, curing pads, product screens and biofilters The total treatment capacity of the KBPCP is 500 tonnes of food waste feedstock per year and about 100 tonnes of compost product will be produced.
The aim of this visit is allow our members to gain knowledge of the treatment process of source separated food waste including pre-treatment, composting, curing, final products and application of compost.
