National Engineering Laboratory of Waste Incineration Technologies and Equipment Inaugurated in Zhejiang University

  
  National Engineering Laboratory of Waste Incineration Technologies and Equipment, the sole national engineering laboratory established in the field of waste and hazardous waste incineration, is inaugurated in Zhejiang University on March 11, 2017.
   Liu Shuang at the Department of Science and Technology under the Ministry of Education, Yan Jianhua, Vice President of Zhejiang University, and Cen Kefa, an academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering, attend and deliver speech on the unveiling ceremony; more than 50 representatives from co-building partners, relevant departments and media are present at the launch ceremony to witness the starting of the construction of the Laboratory.
   A national engineering laboratory is an important part of China¨s technological innovation system, a vital guarantee for integrating innovation resources and reinforcing the supply of industrial technologies, a bridge joining fundamental research and industrial R&D and a significant base gathering and cultivating talents for engineering innovation.
   The establishment of National Engineering Laboratory of Waste Incineration Technologies and Equipment was approved by the National Development and Reform Commission in October 2016 after rigorous application examination and selection evaluation; the establishment is led by Zhejiang University (Institute for Thermal Power Engineering) under the cooperation with leading enterprises in the field including Everbright Environmental Protection (China) Limited, Hangzhou Jinjiang Group, Nantong Wanda Boiler Co. Ltd., Power Construction Corporation of China, Sinoma International Engineering Co., Ltd., Zhejiang Fuchunjiang Environmental Thermoelectric Co., Ltd. and Zhejiang Best Energy and Environment Co., Ltd.. The Laboratory is established to enhance the indigenous innovation capability in waste and hazardous waste incineration technology and promote the fast and sound development of waste and hazardous waste incineration field.
   Seeing that the domestic waste and hazardous waste incineration in China is of low stability and the problem of secondary pollution is prominent, the National Engineering Laboratory of Waste Incineration Technologies and Equipment is oriented toward meeting the urgent demand for solid waste disposal following the principles of minimization, biosafety and recycling and founded mainly to build a research platform for waste incineration technology and equipment application, support R&D and engineering of technologies, processes and equipment including efficient thermal disposal of solid waste, efficient utilization of thermal energy, efficient flue gas purification, detoxification of dioxin and stabilization of heavy metals, safe disposal of fly ash and slag, make breakthroughs in vital technologies including mechanical biological treatment of waste, efficient incineration through large-capacity grate waste incineration furnace and circulating fluidized bed, multistage gasification and pyrolysis of waste, entire process control and on-line detection of dioxin and detoxification of heavy metals in fly ash, enhance the indigenous innovation capability in waste and hazardous waste incineration technology and promote the fast and sound development of waste and hazardous waste incineration field and form core competence in the field of waste and hazardous waste incineration and disposal, thus reaching the leading level in the world in aspects of energy utilization efficiency and pollutant detection and control and playing a key role in the field of waste and hazardous waste incineration and disposal at home and abroad.
   On the unveiling ceremony, the National Engineering Laboratory of Waste Incineration Technologies and Equipment declares to appoint the Professor Yan Jianhua to be the Director of the Laboratory and the Academician Cen Kefa be the Chairman of the Technical Committee.
   The 1st meeting of the National Engineering Laboratory of Waste Incineration Technologies and Equipment's Directorate is held before the unveiling ceremony. Based on the recommendations of the Owner, the Professor Ni Mingjiang, the President of Institute for Sustainable Energy of Zhejiang University is assigned as the Chairman of the Directorate, and Wang Yuanluo, the General Manager of Hangzhou Jinjiang Group, and Cai Shuguang, the Executive Director and the Deputy General Manager of China Everbright International Limited and the Chief Executive Officer of Everbright Envirotech (China) Limited are appointed to be the Vice Chairman of the Directorate.
   The National Engineering Laboratory of Waste Incineration Technologies and Equipment is situated in Qingshanhu Energy R&D Base, Zhejiang University in the Lot of Qingshanhu Science & Technology Park, Kechuang Corridor of West Hangzhou, and its construction period is 3 years.
