Dong Nai (VNA) – France’s CNIM Group had a working session on December 16 with officials of the southern province of Dong Nai to discuss investment possibility for a waste-to-energy power plant worth nearly 20 million EUR in the locality.

A world leading waste treatment, CNIM group has invested in numerous projects to burn garbage to generate electricity in many nations in the world. After a fact-find period, CNIM wants to build a modern waste-to-energy power plant in Dong Nai with an average daily capacity estimated at 1,300 tonnes of garbage.

Dinh Quoc Thai, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee said the province has a population of over three million, discharging around 1,000 tonnes of waste per day and even more in the coming years.

Dong Nai needs waste treatment projects applying advanced technologies to meet the treatment capacity while protecting the environment, Thai added.

He also requested the provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment to further work with the group on the project.-VNA
