China sets 50% recycling goal for 2015

China – China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has set a goal of increasing the country’s industrial solid waste recycling rate to 50% by 2015, with the aim of recycling 7 billion tonnes during the 2011-2015 period.

The figure is nearly double that achieved during the 11th Five-Year Plan period of 2006-2010. If objectives are realised, MIIT estimates that 23 333 hectares of land currently occupied by industrial waste will be reclaimed. During the 2006-2010 period, China recycled 3.6 billion tonnes of solid waste and reclaimed 12 000 hectares of waste land, according to the ministry.
