Hanoi (VNA) – Papermaker Lee & Man Vietnam Ltd. announced at a press conference in Hanoi on November 1 that its packing paper mill based in the Mekong Delta province of Hau Giang will go into operation later this year.

Launched in 2014, the 280 million USD mill has an annual capacity of 420,000 tonnes of packing paper. It is equipped with a wastewater treatment facility capable of handling 20.000 cu.m each day, a 50MW turbine within a hydropower plant, and an automatic wastewater monitoring system.
