Alliance to End Plastic Waste Solution Model Playbooks Document Comprehensive and Integrated Solutions to Enable Plastic Circularity

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach Newswire - 17 April 2024 - The Alliance to End Plastic Waste has published the first two in a series of 'Solution Model' playbooks, to improve the understanding of the many stakeholders across the plastic value chain about what is possible and what else is needed to drive systems change to end plastic waste in the environment and develop a circular economy for plastics. National and regional governments, companies, and communities across the world face the issue of plastic pollution, for which there is no one-size-fits-all solution. The Alliance initiated the concept of Solution Models as an important component of its mission. Specifically, this involves the development, de-risking, and demonstration of solutions to address different sources of plastic waste in different situations. All of this aligns with the Alliance's key goals to reduce unmanaged waste, capture value from waste, create social benefit, and mitigate climate impact. Each solution is tested through Alliance projects. As the projects and solutions mature, the Alliance combines these findings with existing industry experience to develop Solution Models, which the Alliance hopes will further improve replication and scaling in collaboration with partners. It has worked in collaboration with Boston Consulting Group (BCG) to create playbooks to support this. The first two playbooks are about Engaging Households in Segregated Municipal Waste Collection and Unlocking Value Through Basic Manual Sorting of Municipal Waste. The first addresses household waste segregation which can significantly improve the volume and quality of material collected for recycling, while reducing sorting costs and decreasing landfill disposal. The playbook maps the steps Alliance project partners have taken to encourage households to separate the waste 'at source', in projects implemented in Argentina, China, India, and Indonesia. The second playbook highlights the improved value recovery of plastic waste for recycling, including the use of simple and low-cost equipment to improve the ergonomics and speed of basic manual sorting. The Solution Model expressed in this playbook is particularly relevant to countries which have limited collection and treatment infrastructure, or those with early-stage recycling systems. Alliance projects that underpin this Solution Model can be found in Brazil, China, Indonesia, and Kenya. In essence, the playbooks describe the challenges presented by the activities of each solution, how they were addressed in the projects, the lessons the Alliance has learnt, and its successes. They also record the enabling conditions necessary to implement the solutions, from policy levers to ecosystem conditions, business models, and innovation. The Alliance and BCG will continue to collaborate and, where applicable, update these playbooks as the solutions are strengthened. The Alliance hopes that the playbooks will encourage other organisations to scale and replicate these solutions, taking on the lessons the Alliance has learnt and the identified critical success factors. This will enable acceleration of the common interest to prevent plastic waste from entering the environment. Jacob Duer, President and CEO at the Alliance, said, "There is a need for solutions that are environmentally beneficial, socially responsible, and economically viable; and therefore, replicable and scalable if we are to advance the transition into a circular economy for plastics." "The plastic waste challenge is complex and requires a systems evolution from the current take-make-dispose model to a circular one that encourages reuse and recycle, alongside a range of other solutions required to address plastic pollution. To encourage this, we need investments and solutions that improve waste management, support behaviour change, and promote innovation." "We have not wavered in our aspiration to drive the systems change necessary to achieve full plastics circularity. This is a journey no organisation can approach alone, nor is there a silver bullet. We are calling for like-minded partners from across the public and private spheres to collaborate with us in furthering the development, strengthening, and implementation of current and future Solution Models." Marc Schmidt, Managing Director and Partner at BCG, Singapore, said, "The leakage of plastic waste into the environment is a critical issue that urgently needs tackling by working together with a wide range of stakeholders. We understand this is a big challenge." "We believe in creating practical, instructional solutions that can be easily implemented locally, tailored to the specific needs and context of a community dealing with plastic or waste issues. By scaling and replicating these solutions, we increase their impact significantly. We encourage local project developers to use these playbooks as a foundation and further develop and implement them." An in-depth introduction to the concept of Solution Models accompanied by a framework for documenting solutions can be found in a whitepaper published alongside the first two playbooks. Additional Solution Model playbooks are scheduled for release later in the year.

Innovative solutions for Resilient, Sustainable, Adaptive and Efficient IT Infrastructure in Data Centers and Distributed IT "With the recent explosion and popularity of AI, data centers have taken a leading role in driving digitization and electrification. Data centers are crucial for the most advanced systems and act as catalysts for sustainable progress across all industries. Simultaneously, the rapid advancement of digital technologies, the rise of edge IT, and the increasing adoption of IoT applications have generated a growing demand for computing, networking, and storage resources in edge IT environments. This demand arises from the convergence of operation technology (OT) and the need for close proximity to support critical business processes and enhance user experiences." shared Steven Lee, Director, Secure Power, Power Systems and Industrial Automation, Schneider Electric Hong Kong. As a pioneer in innovation, Schneider Electric is committed to delivering innovative solutions that address the unique challenges of a digital and energy-conscious world. By harnessing the power of digitization, AI, and IoT, Schneider Electric is shaping a more efficient, resilient, adaptive, and sustainable future for data centers and edge IT. Schneider Electric's Intelligent Micro Data Center One (IMDC One) offers an order-to-site assembly solution package that combines power, cooling, security, and monitoring into a single enclosure for up to 7kW IT load. This eliminates the need for an IT room, deploys 20% faster, and can save up to 50% on capital expenditure (CAPEX). The IMDC is scalable for up to three racks, providing standalone Edge IT capacity in branch offices, commercial buildings in semi-controlled environments, and wiring closets. This affordable solution offers a one-stop professional service with a fast response time, enabling simple and rapid deployment in weeks instead of months for customers, enabling seamless customer experiences and optimized business operations at the edge. Schneider Electric has expanded its APC Smart-UPS Ultra to 8kW and 10kW. This UPS is the world's smallest and lightest single-phase 8kW and 10kW UPS. It offers customers more scalable power while taking up minimal space. The extended range of UPS is 30% smaller, 50% lighter, and 1.5x more power-dense than comparable offerings in a 4U footprint. The UPS with Lithium-ion battery could last for about eight to ten years and has longer battery life than VRLA for three times. The UPS can also connect up to ten external battery packs to cover extended runtime. Medium voltage (MV) switchgear is critical for electrical distribution. However, most MV equipment has SF6 gas, which acts as a potent electrical insulator and emits a greenhouse gas 23,500 times stronger than CO2. Proper disposal of end-of-life switchgear is essential to prevent the release of SF6 into the atmosphere and avoid costly compliance measures. By transitioning to SF6-free switchgear, these challenges can be mitigated. Schneider Electric's AirSeT innovation combines the latest gas-insulated switchgear with pure air technology and digital connectivity. It's a sustainable solution that enables grid operators to modernize and decarbonize the grid while improving operational performance and reliability.

Arup and WWF to establish Nature-based Solutions standards for Hong Kong’s rural development

HONG KONG SAR - Media OutReach Newswire - 17 April 2024 - Arup and WWF released their joint research report 'Designing a Sustainable Rural Township With Nature-based Solutions' today. The research provides practical insights for integrating NbS into the planning of Hong Kong's rural districts to drive the city's sustainable development. (From left to right) ; Dr Bosco Chan, Director of Conservation at WWF-Hong Kong; Prof Rebecca Chiu, Honourary Professor at Department of Urban Planning and Design, University of Hong Kong, and Bartlett School of Planning, University College London; Ms Nicole Wong, Chief Executive Officer of the WWF-Hong Kong; Dr Vincent Cheng, Arup Fellow and East Asia Climate and Sustainability Services Leader; Mr Wong Kam Sing, Former Secretary for the Environment; Mr Jim Taylor, Senior Director of Planning and Development at CLP Power Hong Kong Limited; and Ms Claudia Yu, East Asia Nature Positive Design Leader at Arup, gathered to share insight on sustainability development in Hong Kong. Citing Lantau's Mui Wo as the prime case for examination, the research outlined similar challenges faced by peri-urban landscapes in Hong Kong, highlighting the importance of balancing economic and social development with environmental conservation. It proposes six actionable NbS for Mui Wo, also applicable to New Development Areas (NDAs): establishing a water buffalo park, developing an eco-shoreline, promoting regenerative agriculture, increasing aerial greening, building an integrated wetland treatment system, and river revitalisation. These solutions aim to address the environmental challenges and enhance the overall sustainability of the area. The study will serve as a comprehensive guidebook for diverse stakeholders, including the government, developers and other related sectors, to prioritise sustainability in rural development, foster green financing and ultimately boost Hong Kong's green economy. A launch event was held today, featuring speeches by Dr Vincent Cheng, Arup Fellow and East Asia Climate and Sustainability Services Leader, and Ms Nicole Wong, Chief Executive Officer of WWF-Hong Kong at the opening ceremony. In his opening remarks, Dr Vincent Cheng said: "Today's publication uses Mui Wo as an exemplary case study, demonstrating how Nature-based Solutions could be effectively integrated into Hong Kong's new development areas. Through this case study, we aim to inspire individuals, communities, policymakers, and businesses to embrace Nature-based Solutions as a fundamental part of our urban development agenda. It is a call to action, urging each and every one of us to contribute to the cause of nature conservation and sustainability. We must recognise that our actions today will shape Hong Kong's future for generations." Ms Nicole Wong said: "The collaboration between Arup and WWF-Hong Kong marks a significant milestone in the realm of environmental conservation. Nature-based Solutions offer a promising approach to address many of the environmental and societal challenges facing Hong Kong." This was followed by a panel discussion led by Mr Wong Kam Sing, Former Secretary for the Environment, with esteemed panelists from environmental, property, utilities and urban planning sectors. These included Dr Bosco Chan, Director, Conservation of WWF-Hong Kong; Prof Rebecca Chiu, MH, JP, Honourary Professor at Department of Urban Planning and Design, University of Hong Kong, and Bartlett School of Planning, University College London; Mr Jim Taylor, Senior Director of Planning and Development at CLP Power Hong Kong Limited; and Ms Claudia Yu, East Asia Nature Positive Design Leader at Arup. The business leaders across industries shed light on how to implement NbS in Hong Kong's NDAs and capture the rising opportunities in TNFD (The Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures) reporting. Ms Claudia Yu said: "We should acknowledge the value of nature and incorporate Nature-based designs in future city planning. The six Nature-based Solutions we proposed serve as a compelling demonstration of practical applications and show the potential for adopting Nature-based design, benefitting both the local community and the environment. We have also developed a landscape carbon calculator that allows us to evaluate the potential carbon emissions and sequestration, providing a roadmap towards a climate positive future. We look forward to applying this new concept in more future projects." Dr Bosco Chan said: "We should fully embrace NbS in Hong Kong's new development projects, as this approach provides exciting opportunities to harmonise nature conservation and development."
