Hong Kong's first food waste recycling facility to capture this neglected resource.

Hong Kong's waste production per capita is much higher than other advanced cities in Asia, especially food waste recorded with 3,300 tonnes per day in 2020. Without proper treatment, the biodegradable residue may risk the food security and ecosystem, therefore a state-of-art recycling and treatment facility for organic resource is needed.

Hong Kong O·PARK1

O·PARK1 on Lantau Island, is Hong Kong's first of its kind food waste recycling project. It is able to treat 73,000 tonnes of food waste from restaurants and food factories annually. The project, operating in the name of OSCAR Bioenergy Joint Venture, applies biological treatment, such as anaerobic and composting processes, to convert waste into methane gas and organic fertilizer. The plant is fully in accordance with the Chinese and EU standards, and the strictest safety and environmental requirements.
