Backing for `cheaper and cleaner' plan - Green Island Cement - Tap Shek Kok - Tuen Mun - Edward Yau - Electricity - Waste

A plan by Green Island Cement to build a waste melting system at Tap Shek Kok in Tuen Mun has been backed by the nongovernment organization Momentum 107.

Dozens of members of the group wearing masks depicting Secretary for the Environment Edward Yau Tang-wah and laboratory whites protested against the government's decision to veto the plan to generate electricity using waste, near the Cheung Kong subsidiary's plant yesterday.

Momentum 107 is a member of World Taxpayers Association and its name derives from Article 107 of the Basic Law, which requires the Hong Kong government to achieve fiscal balance and avoid deficits.
