A solid waste treatment plant in Ly Son island district, the central province of Quang Ngai has experienced a trial run after five months of construction.

With an average daily capacity of 15.5 tonnes, the plant, the first of its kind in the island district, can handle a remarkable volume of daily and production waste discharged from locals, said Le Hoai An, head of the district’s Natural Resources and Environment Division.

The plant was built on an area of 2 hectares in An Hai and An Vinh communes at a cost of 30.7 billion VND (1.5 million USD).

Once put into official operation, the plant will contribute to improving the living environment for local residents and marine creatures, said An.-VNA
