Shimao Energy is a company that operates degeneration plants with municipal solid waste and coal as the main raw materials.

There are already seven companies from Ningbo that have been listed this year. Another two companies from Ningbo - Daye Garden Industry Co Ltd and Ningbo Dechang Electric Machinery Co Ltd - are currently preparing for their IPOs.

On June 28, Ningbo Color Masterbatch Co Ltd made its debut on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, becoming the 100th A-share listed company from the city.
