TAY NINH (VNS)— The Department of Natural Resources and Environment in southern Tay Ninh Province has handed over certificates confirming that eight companies have set up waste water treatment systems that meet required standards.
The companies specialise in processing cane sugar, starch and rubber.
Department Director Nguyen Dinh Xuan said that these were the first companies with factories located upstream Dong Nai River that have built standard waste water treatment systems under a project to protect the environment in Dong Nai River's Basin that has been approved by the Prime Minister.
So far, 89 companies have been ordered to build standard waste water treatment systems; including 12 that piloted them and 36 that have committed to completing the task this June.
Xuan said companies that fail to build standard waste water systems will be shut down. — VNS
