China is building the largest waste-to-energy plant in the world The Chinese city of Shenzhen plans to tackle its serious waste problem by burning 5,000 tonnes of it a day in what will become the largest waste-to-energy plant in the world. The process, which is expected to turn at least a third of the trash into useable electricity, isn’t exactly the best thing for the environment on account of all the CO2 it’ll release, but it'll at least put a nice, big dent in the landfills and illegal dumps that have been building up in Shenzhen. One of these landfills actually killed dozens of people last year when it unexpectedly collapsed. Expected to be up and running by 2020, the plant is less about generating electricity and more about finding a solution to the existing trash problem - the energy is just a handy bonus. According to Adele Peters at Fast Company, the new incinerator is one of 300 waste-to-energy plants that the Chinese government plans on building over the next three years.
