HUNG YEN (VNS) — The Tuan Cuong Plastic Co Ltd in Minh Hai Commune, Van Lam District, the northern province of Hung Yen, has been fined nearly VND220 million (US$10,400) for creating pollution.
The company discharged waste water, which exceeded the regulated level by 10 times, polluting the local water resources of Chi Dao and Minh Hai communes, according to local authorities.
The company had been fined for a similar violation in December last year.
The Tuan Cuong Company has been operating for nearly 10 years, manufacturing a variety of bags for supermarkets. However, the company used substandard materials and an improper waste water treatment system during their manufacturing process. — VNS
