The Department of Planning and Investment of southern Tay Ninh province has approved a project to build a plant to manufacture mechanical products from industrial waste in the locality.

Accordingly, Hue Phuong Green Environment Co. Ltd, which operates in the field of waste treatment in the province, will invest 50 billion VND (2.35 million USD) to implement the project.

The 6,000 sq.m plant will be constructed in Thanh Duc, Go Dau district with a daily capacity of 300 tonnes of products, specialising in producing rivets, screws, shaped steel, and slabs of bronze, lead and aluminium.

The provincial People’s Committee asked the investor to use advanced and environmentally friendly technologies in the plant while ensuring regulations on waste treatment. The investor is also asked to prepare a report on the environmental impact to submit to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment for approval.

The department said solid waste in the locality was usually buried, wasting money and land, and causing groundwater pollution.

Once operational, the project is expected to contribute to protecting the environment and bring economic benefits to the locality.-VNA
