China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

The Ti­bet au­ton­o­mous re­gion put its first haz­ardous waste dis­posal cen­ter into oper­a­tion on Wed­nes­day. It fills a gap in Ti­bet’s abil­ity to deal with med­i­cal waste and other haz­ardous waste, said Wang Jun­min, deputy di­rec­tor of the lo­cal en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion bureau. The cen­ter, China’s high­est such fa­cil­ity in terms of al­ti­tude, can process about 8 met­ric tons of waste per day and about 3,376 tons an­nu­ally, and cost more than 82 mil­lion yuan ($13.14 mil­lion).
