Japanese New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation (NEDO) will help Hanoi implement a sample project to treat industrial waste in Nam Son waste treatment complex, Soc Son district, Hanoi.

A Memorandum of Understanding to this effect was signed in Hanoi on July 6.

NEDO has worked with the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources and the Hanoi People’s Committee to study the project since 2010.

The project, worth 29.2 million USD with 22.5 million USD funded by Japan, applies advanced waste treatment technology with a daily capacity of 75 tonnes. The energy recovered will be used to generate power.

Japanese Hitachi Zonsen and the Hanoi Urban Environment Company (URENCO) will jointly implement the project.

This model will then be duplicated in many cities and provinces nationwide.-VNA
