From May 21 to May 22, 2019, the International Environmental Technology Center (IETC), a subsidiary of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and Osaka Municipal Government jointly organized the "Technical Solutions for Global Waste Management" conference in Osaka, Japan. Long Jisheng, expert member of International Solid Waste Association, chairman and CEO of SUS Environment, was invited to attend the meeting. In addition, SUS Environment also signed a strategic cooperation agreement with the United Nations International Environmental Technology Center (IETC), and both sides will deepen cooperation in global solid waste management.
Long Jisheng introduced the great achievements of China's waste-to-energy industry at the meeting. He pointed out that waste-to-energy has obvious advantages over landfill. It not only has a high degree of waste reduction and harmlessness, but it also generates electricity so as to realize waste reuse. After 30 years of development, China's waste-to-energy industry has been in the forefront of the world. China is willing to share the rich experience gained in practice with other countries. In particular, SUS has solved the problems of high moisture content and low calorific value of garbage in China by means of reforming incinerator grate and optimizing process flow. This experience is especially applicable to other Asian countries with similar eating habits.
During the meeting, the successful case of SUS changing "NIMBY" into "PIMBY" attracted wide attention. SUS Ningbo Mingzhou Waste-to-Energy Project adopts strict flue gas purification process, which is the first project of SUS to adopt the "seven step" full set of combined system. In addition, the flue gas emission index is better than the strict EU Emission Standard (2010 / 75 / EU). The project is a garden like factory, with garbage sorting museum, fitness and sports facilities, Party building hall, etc., which are open to the public free of charge. The project made the plant area into an open community, and build the community into a home shared with the surrounding residents, successfully turning "NIMBY" into "PIMBY", and innovating the face of the industry.

SUS's efforts to solve the problem of waste disposal in China were recognized by the participants. Long Jisheng, and Keith Alverson, director of the United Nations International Environmental Technology Center (IETC), signed a strategic cooperation agreement on behalf of both sides, planning to continuously deepen cooperation in global solid waste management.
With excellent technology and service, SUS is striving to make solid waste treatment another beautiful business card of China. On the afternoon of March 25, 2019, local time in France, under the witness of the leaders of China and France, SUS Environment signed the "Renewable Energy Development Platform" with China Investment Corporation, French National Investment Bank, and French Qair at the Elysee Palace Co-construction work agreement", which locked the first batch of 2 billion euro project investment intention. On April 8, 2019, SUS signed another US $100 million loan agreement with the Asian Development Bank, which is the first low-carbon Eco-industrial Park supported by the Asian Development Bank.
The conference aimed to provide a platform for governments and enterprises to communicate. Guests invited to attend the meeting included Rolph Payet, executive secretary of Basel Convention, Antonis Mavropoulos, President of International Solid Waste Association (ISWA), former environment minister of Egypt, relevant officials of Ministry of environment, Ministry of foreign affairs and Osaka City of Japan, officials of Southeast Asian countries, and environmental protection enterprises of many countries.
