DESCRIPTION
 
.
Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects, Gottlieb Paludan Architects, Waste-to-Energy Plant, Shenzhen, ChinaLocated on the mountainous outskirts of Shenzhen the new Shenzhen East Waste-to-Energy Plant will incinerate 5,000 tonnes of waste per day - equalling one third of the waste generated by Shenzhen's 20 million inhabitants every year. The plant will utilize the most advanced technology in waste incineration and power generation, whilst at the same time act as a source of education for the citizens of Shenzhen.

Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects, Gottlieb Paludan Architects, Waste-to-Energy Plant, Shenzhen, ChinaThe winning design organizes the entire plant, including auxiliary buildings, into one circular building - breaking with the traditional rectangular layout of industrial facilities. By proposing a clear circular form, the footprint of the plant is minimised and it reduces the amount of excavation required to build on the site.

Public visitors are invited into the plant through a landscaped park, via an entrance bridge that rises between the stacks to an entrance lobby and visitor centre overlooking the plant machinery. An internal circular path and walkway circle the plant explaining each process, before leading up to a 1.5km panoramic public walkway on the roof overlooking the surrounding landscape and the city of Shenzhen.

ECO-SUSTAINABILITY'
 
Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects, Gottlieb Paludan Architects, Waste-to-Energy Plant, Shenzhen, ChinaThe 66,000m2 roof is designed to be covered by up to 44,000m2 of photovoltaic panels providing the opportunity for the plant to not only provide a cleaner way to deal with the city’s waste but also contribute to the renewable energy provision for the city.

Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects, Gottlieb Paludan Architects, Waste-to-Energy Plant, Shenzhen, ChinaThe plant is intended to showcase the Waste-to-Energy production as an important technical process that is geared to deal with the issues of growing waste, as well as the issue of finding more environmentally friendly ways of generating electricity. At the same time visitors become informed on the challenge of the growing amounts of waste we produce every day and are also educated on initiatives on how to reduce their own amount of daily waste.
