Work started on the construction of a 32 million EUR waste recycling plant in Ly Trach commune, Bo Trach district, central Quang Binh province on December 23.

The plant, the province’s largest foreign-invested project so far, will help reduce environment pollution by using German advanced technology to classify and turn waste into useful products.
It is designed to process 300 tonnes of garbage every day which will be used to produce biogas, electricity and fertilizer.

Pham Trong Thuc, Director of the New and Renewable Energy Department under the Ministry of Industry and Trade, spoke highly of the plant and urged more support for the project as waste treatment and renewable energy is a new industry in Vietnam.

The recycling plant is expected to start operation in 18 months.-VNA
