China’s Tianjin Eco-City Sets Ambitious Goals

by Matt Ball on January 11, 2011

The Tianjin Eco-City, a project between Singapore and China, aims to reduce the carbon emissions of China’s sixth largest city. To meet this goal, the city promises that 90 percent of the traffic within its limits will be public transportation.  The city will be divided into seven distinct sectors – a Lifescape, an Eco-Valley, a Solarscape, an Urbanscape, a Windscape, an Earthscape and Eco-Corridors – over 30 square kilometers. The city will incorporate solar and wind power, rainwater recycling and desalination of sea water. This ambitious city is expected to house 350,000 residents by 2020.
