CRCC won 6 overseas waste incineration power plant projects in Kazakhstan

China Railway 20th Bureau Group Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Railway Construction Corporation, signed a feasibility study agreement and an EPC contract of intent for the 6 waste incineration power plant projects in Kazakhstan with the Kazakhstan Waste 2 Energy Company.

This project is one of the waste-to-energy projects planned by the Ministry of Ecology, Geology and Natural Resources of Kazakhstan. The project mainly builds 6 waste incineration power plants in 6 cities including Nur-Sultan, Almaty, Shymkent, Ust-Kamenogorsk, Karaganda, and Aktobe.  The amount of waste exceeds 1.3 million tons, and the daily waste disposal capacity of each power plant is between 300 and 1500 tons. The planned construction period is 4 years and will be implemented in two phases. China Railway 20th Bureau Group Co., Ltd. has actively overcome various unfavorable factors of the new crown epidemic and has carried out various tasks.

It is understood that as of 2021, Kazakhstan has a total of 31.9 billion tons of production and domestic waste, of which approximately 125 million tons are solid domestic waste. Turning waste into treasure has become an important topic in Kazakhstan. It solves the problem of urban waste disposal and environmental protection, and converts solid waste resources into clean energy. After the project is completed, it will have a positive impact on promoting the green and sustainable development of Kazakhstan, improving the energy structure, and promoting employment.
