A waste treatment plant applying the Spanish technology is being built in the central province of Phu Yen.
A ceremony was held on July 12 to kick off the construction of the 456-billion-VND (23 million USD) project invested by the Thanh Tung Lt. Company.

Covering an area of 10 hectares in Hoa Kien commune, Tuy Hoa city, the plant is designed to treat 300 tonnes of garbage on a daily basis.

It is expected to be commissioned in two years.

According to experts, Vietnam discharges hundreds of millions tonnes of garbage every year, with only 10 percent recycled. The acceleration of treatment projects, therefore, will help the country ease environmental pollution.-VNA
