Producers and research institutes from both home and abroad are showcasing their energy-saving equipment and pollution reduction technologies at an exhibition which will end in Hanoi on May 23.

The 2014 International Exhibition Fair on Environment and Energy Technology (Entech Hanoi), which opened on May 21, witnessed the participation of domestic businesses and universities and those from Japan, the Republic of Korea (RoK) and Europe.

It looks to accelerate the technology transfer between markets as well as improve the efficiency of using natural energy and resources, contributing to reducing environmental pollution in the community towards a low-carbon economy.

Notably, participating firms are also displaying environmentally friendly products powered by renewable and clean energy, including wind and solar energy, in addition to advanced waste treatment technologies.

On the sidelines of the expo, a range of relevant activities will be held, including symposiums and the Vietnam-RoK energy and environment industry forum, plus exchange programmes between participating businesses at the event.

The 2014 Entech Hanoi is the sixth annual event held by the capital’s People’s Committee. Since its inception in 2009, the event has facilitated the signing of 1,280 contracts. The technology transfer agreements have been worth up to 104.5 million USD.-VNA
