PHÚ YÊN — The central province of Phú Yên has restarted construction of a solid garbage treatment plant in Hòa Kiến and An Phú communes of Tuy Hòa City after a three-year delay.
The province said the project, which will be built on 10ha with total investment of VNĐ264 billion (US$11.7 million), was designed to treat 240 tonnes of household rubbish – 50 per cent of the province’s rubbish– each day.
Chairman of T-Tech, the new project investor, Nguyễn Đình Trọng said last week the plant would recycle 30 per cent of total rubbish, while 60 per cent will be burnt in furnace for biogas collection.
The plant will also produce 10,000 bricks from rubbish each day and compost from rubbish.
According to the province, nearly 500 tonnes of household rubbish are released each day, but only 50 per cent of garbage is collected daily.
The province has 20 dumps, but only two use environmentally friendly treatment.
The plant will start operations in 2019.
The project, approved in 2014, had its licence revoked by the local administration from the Thanh Tùng company – the initial investor of the project - in March of 2017 as the company had not begun construction.
Phú Yên will be the second province in the central region to develop a solid waste treatment project after Đà Nẵng.
In 2015, the Việt Nam Environment Joint-Stock Company debuted its first waste treatment plant at Khánh Sơn dump in Đà Nẵng processing 100 per cent of rubbish into recycled oil and unbaked bricks bio charcoal. — VNS
