Regulations on the Administration of Domestic Waste in Shanghai came into effect on July 1, 2019.
娱乐地图女神会所This shows that Shanghai is carrying out the most ambitious gar
bage revolution in history, with the topic “Garbage Classification Revolution” in Shanghai beco
ming a major point of public discussion, attracting media attention at home and abroad.娱乐地图
1. Shanghai’s waste classification system: infrastructure and humanism
娱乐地图女神会所China has carried out bagged garbage collection since the mid-80s and in 1995 began exploring the classification of garbage.
The Ministry of Housing and Construction in 2000 selected eight maj
or cities, including Beijing, Shanghai and Hangzhou, to classify and recycle garbage.娱乐地图
After 19 years of this pilot, the expected results have not been achieved. Munici
娱乐地图女神会所pal garbage disposal has become a bottleneck problem restricting China’s development.
Shanghai is on par with cities like New York, London, Tokyo and Paris when consider
ing its economy and finance, shipping, trade, and science and technology industries.娱乐地图女神会所
Today incineration accounts for about 36 percent of Shanghai’s dome
s娱乐地图tic waste treatment, landfills about half,, and recycling less than 10 percent.
The figures for London are 40, 30, and nearly 30 percent, respectively, with Tokyo registering about 75, 3, and 20 percent.
Compared with these global first-tier cities, the gap in urban waste classificati娱乐地图女神会所
on in Shanghai is not only down to infrastructure, but the humanism of its residents.
2. Shanghai’s three later-developing advantages娱乐地图
After entering a new era, Shanghai encountered unprecedented opportunities
娱乐地图in domestic garbage treatment, reflected in three later-developing advantages.

While dramatic night shots like this particular image of the highway account for a con

“If you look at the trend of shooting night urban images, it’s really because most of the

上海419女神会所Siegemund adds that he expects himself to be working in the architecture field for th
e foreseeable future. Shanghai, too, will also remain his home for the coming decade.
“I can imagine staying here for another eight to 10 years. The problem上海419
with Europe is that people deliberate too much. Things move so slowly. To decide o
上海419女神会所n something takes such a long time that so many things already pass,” he explains.
“Here in Shanghai, something new is always happening. Things are always cha

Doctors in Hubei province have successfully transplanted kidneys
from a prematurely born donor baby into a 47-year-old woman suffering from kidney failure.娱乐地图女神会所
The donor weighed only 1.3 kilograms, the lightest kidney donor ever reported, Wuhan Union Hospital said on Wednesday.
娱乐地图The woman, surnamed Wang, from Duchang county, Jiangxi province, was diagnos
ed with uremia in June last year and transplant surgery performed a month later.
Without the transplant, she would have had to rely on blood dialysis for the rest of her life.娱乐地图女神会所
The kidneys used in the surgery were from a baby born prematurely
娱乐地图, whose parents decided to donate the organs after the infant died, the hospital said.
Following a year of follow-up treatment, the baby’s kidneys, which were between 3 and 4 centimeters long when tran娱乐地图
splanted, have grown to 6.9 cm and 7.6 cm in the patient’s body, closer to the usual size of 10 cm for an adult.
娱乐地图女神会所The two kidneys are functioning normally and Wang’s health has recovered, the hospital said.
Transplant surgeries using kidneys donated by infants are
very difficult compared with kidneys donated by adults. Generally, infants that weigh less th娱乐地图
an 5 kg are not considered as sources of organs for transplant surgeries abroad, the hospital said.
娱乐地图女神会所Wang Zhendi, a transplant surgeon in the hospital and the woman’s do
ctor, said the blood vessels and ureter, a tube that carries urine from the kidney to the ur
inary bladder, are very thin in infants’ kidneys. This makes precise surgery very difficult, with higher chances of post-surgery complications. It is also more di
fficult for such kidneys to function in an adult’s body as they are not fully developed.娱乐地图
“The less the weight of the donor, the slower the kidney recovers functioning in the body where it is transplanted,” he said.
Although an adult can survive with just one kidney, usually two ki娱乐地图女神会所
dneys are transplanted from an infant to improve the chances of a healthy outcome, he said.
The success of the surgery means sources for kidney transplant surgeries can be expanded to inclu娱乐地图
de infant donors. This will ease the gap between the number of organs donated and the number of patie
娱乐地图女神会所nts with terminal kidney disease waiting for transplant surgery in China, the hospital said.
In Wuhan Union Hospital alone, more than 500 registered patients wit
h kidney failure are waiting for suitable organs for transplantation, the hospital said.

上海会所The woman, surnamed Wang, from Duchang county, Jiangxi province, was diagnos

the same hospital in July last year, Chutian Metropolis Daily reported on Wednesday.上海会所品茶微信
The kidneys used in the surgery came from a premature ba

上海会所Following a year’s treatment, the baby’s kidneys have grown to the size of an adult’s and function healthily.
Wang has recovered her health, the hospital said.
The donor is now the lightest kidney donor in the world, the hospital announced on Wednesday.
Transplant surgeries using kidneys donated by infants are difficult, and infants w上海会所品茶微信
ho weigh less than five kilograms are not considered sources of organs in many countries, the hospital said.
The success of the surgery in Wuhan means sources of kidney for transplant surgeries
will be greatly expanded to include early infants, which will ease the gap between the number of organs don
ated and the number of patients with terminal kidney diseases waiting for transplant surgeries in China, the hospital said.
The event on Wednesday, co-funded by Wuhan city government and the Wuhan military garrison
, launched on April 17 and attracted over 100 teams and tens of thousands participants, according to organizers.
