with Ian Brownlee and Louise Preston

on Wednesday, 11 December 2013
Bisous, 9F LKF Tower, 33 Wyndham Street, Central

Networking starts at 6:00pm and the speakers will start at 6:30pm

You all know that Hong Kong is facing a massive problem around handling its waste. Had you stopped to think why the government plans to build an Integrated Waste Management Facility (IWMF) on reclaimed land next to Shek Kwu Chau Island and are not considering existing reclaimed land or for that matter why are they not looking at using the existing landfill sites.  Well a group of individuals have put in an application to the Town Planning Board to have 4 existing sites rezoned to allow IWMF’s to be built, rather than just relying on 1 site currently planned by the government.  You can read about their proposal and learn how to make a submission before 20 Dec via their website –

So if you are interested in:

  • Discussing what technology and systems could be part of a solution
  • Looking for business opportunities in the recycling and waste management sectors
  • Concerned about the IWMF (which includes an Incinerator) planned near Shek Kwu Chau
  • Interested in understanding what options are proposed for handling HK’s waste
  • Understanding how to make a submission before 20 Dec either supporting or opposing the application

Then come along to the discussion with the “Integrated Waste Management Action Group” (IWMAG) who consists of various NGO’s, professionals and members of the public who are knowledgeable in the issues which relate to the development and operation of a comprehensive, truly integrated waste management (IWM) system for the whole of Hong Kong.

The speakers on the night will be Mr Ian Brownlee and Ms Louise Preston.  Mr Brownlee is the managing director of planning and development consultancy MasterPlan Limited, who facilitated the IWMAG application.  Ms Preston is the chair of Living Islands Movement and there will be a team of experts there to answer your questions.

Media are welcome.
