NINH BÌNH – Environmental authorities in the Red River Delta province of Ninh Bình said they would use a waste incineration model to deal with garbage piling up.
After more than a year, the waste treatment facility using Losiho 500 incinerators in Khánh Thiện Commune, Yên Khánh District helped locals deal with trash pollution.
Due to the adverse impact of landfills on the environment, since the beginning of 2015, the province’s Centre for Scientific and Technological Information and Application under the Department of Science and Technology has been building a a waste treatment model using Losiho 500 incinerators.
The goal of the VNĐ1.2-billion (US$52,000) project is to complete new-style rural area goals in Phong An Hamlet in Khánh Thiện Commune, and to remove garbage from Khánh Thiện, Khánh Tiên and Khánh Lợi communes in Yên Khánh District.
According to Nguyễn Minh Tuấn, the centre’s deputy director, the Losiho 500 incinerator needs only two people to operate on an area of 200 sq.m. Tests showed that smoke emitted from the incinerator and air surrounding it met Việt Nam’s criteria on industrial fumes in terms of micro-dust particles and inorganic substances.
Phạm Minh Sanh, chairman of Khánh Thiện Commune’s People’s Committee, said that due to a big population and strong commercial development, the commune produces a huge amount of waste. — VNS
