HÀ NỘI — A waste treatment and recycling plant was inaugurated in Cao Lãnh District, the Mekong Delta province of Đồng Tháp, on Wednesday.
The Đập Đá plant has total investment capital of VNĐ270 billion, covering an area of 10ha and with designed capacity of 240 tonnes of waste per day.
A representative of investor Cửu Long Environment Joint Stock Company said the plant uses Dano technology, which can classify waste components by both automatic and manual systems.
Waste is then recycled into plastic seeds, organic fertiliser, smoke-free coal and bricks.
The project will benefit and help solve environmental issues of Cao Lãnh City and the districts of Cao Lãnh, Tháp Mười and Thanh Bình.
Nguyễn Thanh Hùng, vice chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, praised the investor for completing the project ahead of schedule and asked it to effectively run the plant. In the near future, the company will install several plants to raise the daily capacity to 500 tonnes and treat part of the waste from Lấp Vò District. — VNS
