Thai Nguyen (VNA) – Perilous waste from industrial parks located in northern mountainous provinces will be reduced considerably after Viet Xuan Moi Joint Stock Company puts the first phase of a waste treatment plant using European technology into use in Pho Yen town, Thai Nguyen province, from April.

Invested at a total cost of 120 billion VND (5.4 million USD), the 22-hectare plant becomes the first high-tech waste treatment plant in the region. Along with protecting the environment, it plays a crucial role in building Pho Yen town into a new industrial zone in the region.

The plant includes a hazardous waste incinerator, an oil recycling facility, an electrical and electronic waste treatment system and a battery treating system. It also has a warehouse system to classify and store the waste, as well as a cold storage facility for medical waste.

Upon stable operation, the plant will create jobs for 400 local labourers.
