TAY NINH (VNS) — The Natural Resources and Environment Department in the southern province of Tay Ninh has decided to temporarily suspend operation of 44 tapioca and rubber manufacturers for violating environmental regulations.

Inspectors found the companies had failed to build standard waste treatment facilities and were discharging untreated waste into the environment.

They will only be allowed to resume operations after waste treatment systems are completed in line with regulations.

Local authorities have extended the deadlines for the companies to complete their waste treatment facilities twice. The latest deadline was June this year, but they still failed to meet the regulations. — VNS
