TVB "Scoop" Interview - Introduction of SENT Landfill Gas Utilization Project and related application


Towngas General Manager – Commercial and Industrial Marketing and Sales Mr. Don Cheng has been interviewed by "Scoop" on Jade, TVB recently to talk about the fuel mix for Town Gas Production. As far back as the 1970s, Towngas switched the production feedstock from coal and heavy oil to naphtha, which yields a cleaner gas. In 2006, natural gas was introduced as a dual feedstock with naphtha in gas production. Also, landfill gas treat plants are constructed to promote the application of renewable energy. The treated gas can be used as fuel in gas production, turning waste to energy. Some theme parks, hospitals and Towngas Telecom Hong Kong Data Centre 2 are the users of landfill gas. The programme was broadcast at 7:30pm on 26 December 2019 on TVB Jade.
