HA NOI (VNS) — The Prime Minister has approved a project to promote non-fired brick (NFB) production and utilisation.
The project aims to help Viet Nam reduce greenhouse gas emissions by gradually cutting down on the use of fossil fuels and good quality soil for brick making, while increasing the production, sales and utilisation of NFBs.
Funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the five-year project has total investment of nearly US$39 million, of which $2.8 million will be provided by GEF as non-refundable aid through the UN Development Programme (UNDP).
In the decade following project completion, direct and indirect CO2 emissions will be reduced by an estimated 383 ktonnes and 13,400 ktonnes. — VNS
