ĐẮK NÔNG — A ministrial inspection team has asked the Đắk Nông Aluminum Company to immediately review its technology after its factory released aluminum powder into the air in the Central Highlands province of Đắk Nông.

The industry and trade ministry team, led by Industrial Safety Techniques and Environment Director Trần Văn Lượng, surveyed the polluted area today and met with heads of the Đắk Nông Aluminum Company.

The company confirmed earlier complaints by residents in Village 11 of Nhân Cơ Commune that on June 28 white powder was seen dispersed from the factory, covering nearby leaves and roads.

The white powder was identified as residual aluminum that escaped from the Nhân Cơ factory when strong winds swept through an open container in which the aluminum was stored.  

The inspection team ascertained that no white powder remained in the affected area, having been washed away by several days of rain.

Lượng urged the Đắk Nông Company to urgently improve the protective wall around the factory and review its aluminum production technology to avoid similar incidents in the future. — VNS
