[Reporter Chen Jiayi/Taipei Report] In order to introduce TSMC’s 2nm factory, the China Science and Technology Administration promoted the second-phase development project of the Taichung Park Expansion Project. The environmental impact assessment team conducted the third preliminary review of the “Central Science Park Taichung Park Expansion Phase II Development Plan” yesterday. Meeting.
Environmental groups and the public are worried that the expansion project may increase the burden on air pollution and water and electricity consumption in Taichung. The China Science and Technology Administration has promised that the ultimate goal is to use 100% recycled water. TSMC also stated that it will achieve 100% green electricity utilization in 2050.
The Environmental Protection Committee requires that the waste in the park must not be outsourced, and that it must pass the preliminary review and be sent to the Environmental Impact Assessment Conference for review.
Waste in the park shall not be outsourced
The second phase of the Zhongke Taichung Park expansion project base is located in Daya and Xitun, Taichung, adjacent to the west side of the Zhongke Taichung Park and the north side of the first expansion phase.
Six hectares, and then actively adjusted to eighty-nine.
Seventy-five hectares, the estimated output value exceeds 500 billion yuan, and provides 4,500 job opportunities.

At the previous review meeting, the China Science and Technology Administration reduced its scale and lowered water and electricity consumption. This time, it promised to increase the green area and air pollutants by one.
Twice the exchange rate and tighten the discharge standard; in addition, it promises that the waste recycling rate of the semiconductor industry will reach 90%.
Environmental groups worry about air pollution, increasing water burden
However, environmental groups and the public are still worried about air pollution, water and electricity problems.
Yang Guozhen, chairman of the Taiwan Ecological Association, said that Zhongke is only two to three kilometers away from the Taichung metropolis. When the air pollution is serious in winter, almost the entire Taichung city is within the scope of influence.
He emphasized, "I am not against TSMC," but the National Protector Mountain should be responsible for the environment and the health of the Chinese people.
Chen Qizhong from the Environmental Protection Association of Miaoli County said that part of Taichung's water use was diverted from the Liyutan Reservoir in Miaoli. Water and electricity cannot always be taken away from the relatively disadvantaged.
TSMC sent representatives to attend yesterday, emphasizing that in order to achieve the goal of net zero by 2050, it will strive to gradually use green electricity. 10% and 100% utilization rate of green electricity by 2050.
The China Science and Technology Administration also explained that the park mainly uses recycled water, which will not be used for people's livelihood. Only when the recycled water equipment is closed every year will it turn on the backup of tap water, emphasizing that the ultimate goal is to use 100% recycled water.
After supplementing and correcting the information, send it to the EIA conference for review
The three existing incinerators in Taichung City are fully loaded and can no longer handle the waste from the new park.
The Environmental Protection Committee believes that Zhongke Park should set up its own waste treatment facilities.
The China Science and Technology Administration proposed that it hoped that part of the waste in the early stage of operation could be outsourced, but the Environmental Protection Committee rejected it.
The Environmental Protection Committee believes that there is still time to plan and set up waste treatment facilities, which can also be transported to other science parks for treatment, and finally the China Science and Technology Administration promised to handle it.
In this case, the Environmental Protection Committee suggested supplementing and correcting the materials and passed it, and sent it to the Environmental Impact Assessment Conference for review.
