Japanese Kume Group plans to invest in a waste to organic fertiliser plant in Hung Yen, aiming to help the northern province tackle waste and boost environmental protection, according to a local official.
Nguyen Van Phong, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee said that Kume Group would work with the Japan International Cooperation Agency to construct the plant.
A pilot plant will be built to treat and classify waste and turn the waste to organic fertiliser, while guidance will be given to locals on how to classify rubbish, he said, adding that another plant will be constructed after the pilot.
Kume Group has also asked for support from the province, especially in researching waste releasing in the locality and waste gathering for the plant.
Phong expressed his belief that the project would be effective, pledging that the province will create optimal conditions for its implementation, especially in land use, clean water, infrastructure and power supply.
The province will back the construction of the pilot plant, while directing provincial departments and agencies to co-ordinate with Kume Group during the project, stated Phong.
