HCM CITY (VNS) — The HCM City Department of Planning and Investment has petitioned the municipal People's Committee to allow Trisun Green Energy Co. to conduct research about the use of thermal plasma technology at a solid waste treatment plant.

Under the company proposal, the plant will use plasma technology to incinerate waste and create heat at temperatures above 3,000 degrees Celsius. The heat will be used to produce electricity.

The plant, which will cost about US$520 million, will be built on an area of 13 ha in Tay Bac Solid Waste Treatment Complex in Cu Chi District's Hiep Phuoc Commune.

The plant will have a daily capacity of treating 2,000 tonnes of household waste, 700 – 1,000 tonnes of industrial and hazardous waste and 1,000-2,000 tonnes of sludge.

The company has proposed that if the city assigns the company to treat 1,000 tonnes of solid waste a day, the price will be $31.88 per tonne; 2,000 tonnes of solid waste a day, $30.88 per tonne; and 3,000 tonnes of solid waste a day, $29.88 per tonne.

The project has advanced technology, requires less land and meets environmental protection standards, according to the department. — VNS
