The brief

Yantai Hammarby Eco City is an ecological smart city built on an area of 880,000 square meters based on the global eco-city model of the Hammarby lake city project in Stockholm. The project embraces the green system concept of the Hammarby lake city project, aiming to lower energy consumption, improve recycling, and coexist with the green natural environment.

The green area on the site is maintained at 46% and the mission of the project is to strive for excellence in urban sustainable development. The enclosed pneumatic garbage automatic collection system of Yantai Hammarby Eco City mainly collects two fractions of waste; general waste and recyclable waste in the community.
