The development of waste treatment has its historical background and needs. At present, waste treatment in foreign countries has gradually turned to energy-recycling technology, which is to increase the maximum energy efficiency of waste under the new technology of heat treatment or biological treatment. As we faces difficulties in energy development, environmental awareness, and economic restructuring, the Executive Yuan adopted the “National Waste multi-disposal System Plan” on July 6, 2017, planning a total of central areas within six years (2017-2022). It will invest NT$15.3 billion in the development of waste energy-resources and gradually move toward the era of circular economy. The project aims to assist the administration of National Waste multi-disposal System Plan. Through the cooperation of the central authorities and the local governments, the waste treatment facilities are properly upgraded. The results of implementing the project in this year are as follows:
1.Completed the “National Waste multi-disposal System Plan Database”, which included the application information of the project case, the upgrading of the incineration plant and the cost of environmental protection facilities, and the local government's application for the case.
2.To assist in the written review of local government applications for the “National Waste multi-disposal System Plan”, a total of 13 cases, and continue to promote the progress tracking situation (funding situation) for local governments.
3.Completion of the “National Waste multi-disposal System Plan” application model for local government applications and related recommendations for EPA.
4.Complete the reference manual for waste energy-resource and environmental education promotion and the report of National Waste multi-disposal System Plan.
5.Completed the project related propaganda and technical exchange activities, including handling the conference with about 200 person-times. The project organized 4 conference for the incineration plants and facilities. The project also completed 2 films.
