Binh Thuan (VNA) – The first phase of the first waste treatment and organic fertilizer production complex of the central province of Binh Thuan was completed and put into operation on December 16.

The complex in La Gi town covers an area of nearly 30 hectares and has the capacity of treating 200 tonnes of domestic waste and 255 tonnes of industrial waste per day.  Organic matters are reproduced into biological fertilisers used in agricultural production.

After the second phase is finished, the complex can also recycle plastic, nylon and rubber products and produce environmentally-friendly bricks.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Ngoc Hai said that the inaugural of the complex marks a step forward in La Gi town’s bid to become a Type III urban area and contributes to the locality’s sustainable socio-economic development.

According to Binh Thuan’s solid waste management planning, the province will have four provincial waste treatment complexes, 12 district-level waste treatment areas and two special ones with a total capacity of over 5,400 tonnes per day.-VNA
