The Technical Assistance will fund biogas and biomass practices in rural Qingdao to be implemented and operated by the Qingdao Energy Group (QEG), the largest local state-owned energy company in Qingdao. The project will complement Asian Development Bank -financed Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Clean Air Program. Upon project completion, similar technical application and business model can be replicated in other similar rural areas in the greater Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region by turning agricultural and livestock wastes to cleaner and low-carbon heating and cooking fuel.
During the project preparation, ADB will facilitate establishing a knowledge and technical exchange platform between the QEG and advanced countries in using biogas and biomass such as Germany, Japan, Sweden, and the United States. This will help Qingdao gain further knowledge and experience in the areas of (i) policies, institutional laws and regulations; (ii) biogas and biomass technologies; and (iii) relevant project experiences.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
