Can Tho (VNA) –
The Korean Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH) wants to study cooperation opportunities in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho to build waste treatment plants.

Director of KITECH Gun Young Jung expressed the wish at a working session with Vice Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Pham Gia Tuc in Can Tho on October 10.

He said the RoK has new cutting edge and environmentally friendly waste treatment technology which is suitable with the economic development orientation and climate change adaptation in the Mekong Delta.

Waste will be recycled and reused or changed into energy to serve local daily activities, he added.

Tuc hoped to soon cooperate with the KITEC in this field and noted that the city discharges 700 tonnes of waste on a day while the waste treatment system could deal with only 400 tonnes per day.

He asked the RoK to expand investment in medical and solid waste treatment.

Can Tho has available 15 hectares of land for the construction of waste treatment plants, Tuc said, adding that the city welcomes investors using modern and environmentally friendly technologies.

Local authorities will provide the maximum support in terms of administrative procedures, tax incentives and land usage for investors, he affirmed.-VNA
