According to the bank documents, the development objective of the Zhuzhou Brownfield Remediation Project for China is to reduce public exposure to contaminated land in the project area using risk-based remediation approaches. There are four components to the project, the first component being remediation of contaminated plots. This component will support cleanup and remediation of 2.73 km2 of contaminated plots and 0.11 km2 of dispersed open soil plots in residential areas. The second component is the associated treatment and disposal works. This component will support investments in associated remediation and disposal facilities that are required to treat contaminated materials and thus enable the remediation of certain plots or to make sure that the remediation is sustainable under component one, including: (a) Xinqiao dewatering site; (b) Xinqiao Solidification/Stabilization (S/S) facility; (c) wastewater treatment facilities; and (d) development of an industrial solid waste landfill in the project area. The third component is the capacity building and knowledge management. The project will support Zhuzhou Municipality’s and Shifeng District’s capacity to build and operationalize the technical and management knowledge gained from the project implementation, engage the public, and manage remediation and redevelopment strategic planning. Finally, the fourth component is the Project management, monitoring, and evaluation.
