HÀ NỘI — A fertiliser company is teaming up with Sky Life, a Japanese corporation to build a microbiological factory in central Thừa Thiên-Huế Province.
The announcement was made by Nguyễn Hồng Lam, chairman of Quế Lâm Group's board of directors.
The 15ha plant has an estimated capacity of 5,000 tonnes of microorganisms per year and will be built in 2020 to serve fertiliser production, animal husbandry and environmental treatment.
The production of microorganisms in Việt Nam is important and necessary to reduce costs for farmers, according to Lam.
He said the plant will include a complex area including breeding, cultivation, processing and ecotourism with an investment capital of VNĐ500 billion (US$21.7 million).
Quế Lâm Group is among the leading firms producing and trading organic fertiliser. It is now operating nine organic fertiliser plants across Việt Nam, providing 500,000 tonnes of products each year.
Lâm said the group will soon increase its organic fertiliser production capacity to one million tonnes per year.
The company aims to produce 1.5 million tonnes of organic fertiliser by 2020, two million tonnes by 2025 and 3.5 million tonnes by 2035. — VNS
