At 9:08 pm, March 20, Green Power Jurong Project’s 1st load of garbage entered treatment plant, marking the project being put into 72+24 hours pilot run. Located at Huayang Town, Jurong City, Jiangsu Province, Jurong Project signed an agreement to dispose 1,050 tons of domestic garbage per day and 700 tons per day in Phase I. Currently, the project is mainly responsible to dispose domestic garbage in Jurong urban and rural areas.
As Jurong city is adjacent to Jiangning district, Nanjing, the “Effect of Avoidance” from Jiangning district has great impact on commissioning of the project. Jurong Project made joint efforts with Zhenjiang government, Jurong government and Jiangning district government to push ahead mass work prior to project startup by setting up 6 household visiting teams. The teams are responsible for household visit in each village and related knowledge publicity. They printed and distributed more than 2,000 copies of pamphlets, organized 389 villagers to visit Haining project, held 3 public hearings, and specially organized 2 evaluation meetings prior to project startup. In the end, they won the understanding and support of residents in both areas.
