Shek Kwu Chau Incinerator proposal by Government

2008 Jan 29

Environmental Protection Department filed a report on site selection dated Jan 29th, 2008, to Panel on Environmental Affairs of Legislative Council.

Engaging a consultant, Camp Dresser & Mckee, site selection narrowed down to 2 potentials, Shek Kwu Chau and Tsang Tsui Ash Lagoons.

Shek Kwu Chau was recommended for its remote location, light population, insignificant visual impact.

Air quality impact would only be limited to Cheung Chau, but residents in Cheung Chau are not located at prevailing downwind direction.

Refuse transfer through marine transport is cost effective throughout Hong Kong to Shek Kwu Chau for its central location in terms of sea traffic.

Drawbacks are massive reclamatiion, erosion of habitat of Chinese White Dolphin, longer construction time and at higher cost.
