Building material plants may have to move to IPs

HCM CITY (VNS)— All polluting and obsolete construction-materials factories in HCM City will be either closed down or moved to industrial parks by 2020.

The Department of Construction is making a study of brick kilns and cement and other plants since accurate data is not available to decide how many should be closed down, how many need to have their technologies upgraded, and how many should move to IPs.

They will move to Hiep Phuoc IP in Nha Be District, Southeastern IP in Cu Chi District, and Phong Phu IP in Binh Chanh District.

The department is also working with seven neighbouring provinces — Dong Nai, Tay Ninh, Binh Duong, Binh Phuoc, Long An, Tien Giang, and Ba Ria - Vung Tau — to ensure supply to the city.

Sai Gon Giai Phong (Liberated Sai Gon) newspaper quoted deputy director of the department, Phan Duc Nhan, as saying: "All manual brick kilns have stopped manufacturing. At many other workshops, people have started changing their career."

"The Government offers many incentives to encourage manufacture of green materials using modern technologies, especially those who can take advantage of industrial waste," he said. — VNS
