From the outset, the goal was to design a waste-to-energy plant that is simple, clean, iconic and a deserved indicator of the forward thinking developments that are being made within the waste-to-energy sector in China, and how this can be portrayed not only to the surrounding residents of Shenzhen but to the world. By proposing a clean circular form, the footprint of the plant is controlled and reduces the amount of excavation required to build on the site. When complete, the Waste-to-Energy plant will be the largest of its kind in the world.
