Truong Canh Tuyen, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, asked departments, agencies and localities to join hands to ensure the process, quality and safety of the project, and put the plant into operation in late 2021 as scheduled.
He asked the investor to choose cutting-edge and environmentally friendly technologies for the factory.
Covering 23ha, the plant has total investment capital of 1.32 trillion VND (56.86 million USD). During the first phase, it is designed to have a capacity of handling 300 tonnes of waste per day, generating 6MW, while 600 million tonnes of waste are expected to be handled in the second phase to produce 12MW.
