Tra Vinh expands biogas composite models


The Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh is deploying a project to construct 1,000 biogas composite tanks within the year.

The project is developed by the Centre for Rural Communities Research and Development (CCRD) and the provincial Gardening Association.

Accordingly, each livestock household participating in the programme will receive 1.5 million VND (70 USD) and be provided with a loan of 6 million VND (280 USD) for each biogas tank.

The construction of a 6-cubic-metre tank costs about 10.5 million VND (490 USD) while those of 8-cubic-metre tank and 10-cubic tank are valued at 12.5 million VND (580 USD) and 14.5 million VND (670 USD), respectively.

Since 2014, under a biogas development project designed for the Mekong Delta region, Tra Vinh has installed 600 biogas spherical tanks made of composite materials , said Chairman of the provincial Gardening Association Le Van Be.

The composite tanks are highly durable, productive, economically efficient and environmentally-friendly, helping to reduce environmental pollution and conserve energy.-VNA
