Characteristics of waste in China
Municipal solid waste in China is comprised mostly of food waste, with a high moisture content and corresponding high numbers of bacteria. Veolia’s advanced systems can track dry and wet waste and identify suitable treatment channels for recovery or recycling according to the waste characteristics, protecting the wellbeing of humans and the environment.
