Worlds Largest Waste To Energy Plant

China is building the world's largest waste to energy plant in Shenzhen. The city will use it to convert up to one third of its trash into electricity. When operational it will burn 5,000 tonnes (5,511 tonnes) of trash per day. It will also generate renewable energy using 44,000 m2 (473,000 ft2) of solar panels.

Shenzhen plans to open the facility to the general public for educational purposes. The plant is currently under construction, and should begin operations by 2020.
