T·PARK to hold anniversary activities

May 19, 2022

The Environmental Protection Department announced today that online programmes will be held to celebrate T·PARK’s sixth anniversary and more visitors can join its guided tours.


The department said it will conduct a series of publicity activities through online platforms including social media to showcase how the facility adopts sustainable waste treatment solutions to practice turning waste into energy.


It will also hold “use less, waste less” workshops in July and August for the public to enjoy the fun of recycling resources.


As Hong Kong's first large-scale waste-to-energy (WtE) facility, T·PARK has treated more than 2.7 million tonnes of sewage sludge since its opening in 2016, the department pointed out.


While alleviating the pressure on landfills, the sludge incineration process also generates heat energy that is turned into electricity to support the facility’s energy needs and the surplus electricity generated is exported to the public power grid.


The facility has achieved reduction of waste and carbon emissions, and its environmental education centre is well received by the public, with more than 280,000 visitors in the past six years.


The department explained that to enable more visitors to join T·PARK’s guided tours, it has relaxed the booking to allow each tour session to accommodate 30 people and booking by organisations, including schools and higher education institutions, will resume on May 26.


T·PARK, as the city's largest WtE facility, is a landmark with novel architectural and engineering design.


With its green building design features, T·PARK has attained the Hong Kong Green Building Council’s BEAM Plus New Buildings Platinum rating. In addition to winning many local and overseas awards in engineering and sustainable architectural design, the facility’s T·CAFÉ has won various design awards.


Visits to T·PARK can be booked online.
