All of the garbage in the Nam Son rubbish dump in Soc Son District, Hanoi, will be recycled as an electric power resource.
Vietnamese and Korean investors sign co-operative agreement to recycle rubbish at the Nam Son rubbish dump as an electric power resource.
A co-operative agreement detailing the arrangement was signed in Hanoi on Monday between Viet Nam and partners in South Korea.
Experts lauded the project for utilising rubbish as a source of electric power, praising its leadership for their management of other waste-treatment plants in Viet Nam.
Vietnamese investors include the T&T Group Joint-stock Company and the Viet Nam Urban Environment Company.
South Korean investors include the Sudokwon Landfill Site Management Corporation, the Korea Engineering Consultants Corporation and the Samyoung Electronics Co Ltd.
Leaders of the T&T Group said to roll out the project, the investors would mutually design, build and operate the electric plant. It is expected that the plant will have a capacity of 5MW.
Le Anh Tuan, chairman of the Viet Nam Urban Environment Company, said the plant was scheduled to be built within 15 months with a total investment of US$13.146 million. It will be operational in 15 years.
The plant’s operation would help actively reduce pollution in the Nam Son rubbish dump and would contribute to producing sustainable power for the nation, he said.
