SEN and green tech mission start visit to Denmark (with photos)

     The Secretary for the Environment, Mr Edward Yau, and a green tech mission from Hong Kong started their visit to Denmark in Copenhagen today (April 25, Copenhagen time). While in Copenhagen they will take a look at the city's advanced waste treatment technology and explore possibilities for co-operation in green business.

     The mission first visited Amagerforbrænding, which runs Copenhagen's largest incineration plant. They toured its recycling station and the incineration plant to learn more about the city's waste treatment facilities and technology for generating energy from waste.

     The mission will then attend a luncheon with top executives from various green organisations to identify opportunities for co-operation in green business. The luncheon is co-hosted by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (HKETO) in London, Hong Kong Trade Development Council and Denmark-Hong Kong Trade Association.

     In the afternoon, the mission will meet representatives from Copenhagen Cleantech Cluster, where they will listen to presentations and conduct group discussions on various aspects relating to cleantech research, development and implementation. Mr Yau will also meet the Danish Shipowners' Association to hear more about the Fair Winds Charter.

     The mission will then attend a reception co-hosted by the HKETO London, Hong Kong Trade Development Council and Denmark-Hong Kong Trade Association for the Danish business sector. During the reception Mr Yau will give a presentation entitled "Hong Kong: the Gateway to Green Pearl River Delta" on green business opportunities available to international investors.

     The mission will proceed to Malmo in Sweden tomorrow (April 26, Copenhagen time).
