Six teams have been shortlisted to design the world's largest waste-to-energy plant in Shenzhen, China: Arup, Atkins, AECOM, Gerber Architekten, Schmidt Hammer Lassen with Gottlieb Paludan Architects, and local firm Tanghua Architects. Aiming to manage Shenzhen's growing population (and waste accumulation), the "Shenzhen East Waste-to-Energy Plant" plans to incinerate 5000 tonnes of waste daily and generate an estimated 550 million kWh per year.

Shenzhen Municipality and the client, the Shenzhen Energy Group, has set aside a 267,000-square-meter site on the outskirts of Shenzhen for the project. According to a press release by the shortlisted practice Schmidt Hammer Lassen, the city is looking for a "strong architectural vision" that "will give the city and the local residents an inviting public complex while also providing a platform for public education."
