HA NOI — The management board of Van Phong economic zone has granted an investment licence to Van Phong Rock-Crystal Joint Stock Co to build a non-heated building materials factory using copper-slag in the central coastal city of Nha Trang with total investment capital of VND200 billion (US$9.5 million).

The factory, located in Ninh Thuy Ward of Ninh Hoa Commune is expected to use 75,000 tonnes of copper-slag per year. Copper slag is an abrasive blasting grit made of granulated slag from metal smelting processes (also called iron silicate).

The construction of the factory aims to use discarded copper-slag to avoid environmental pollution.-VNS
