DA NANG (VNS) — The central city has commenced construction of the biggest unbaked brick plant in Hoa Vang district with a capacity of 110 million bricks per year.
The plant received a total investment of US$4.5 million from Toan Hoa Vinh trading and service joint-stock company and is slated to start delivery by this September.
Once the plant becomes operational, it will be able to meet the demand to use unbaked bricks following the Government's programme on development of unbaked constructional material by 2020 and reducing carbon emissions in the environment.
According to a forecast by the Viet Nam Association of Construction Material, Viet Nam's construction industry will need 42 billion bricks in 2020 with a consumption of 5 million tonnes of coal and an emission of 17 million tonnes of carbon.
