After that, the Deputy PM lauded the INTEC’s idea of investing in a waste-to-energy plant in Vietnam, saying the country is in need of modern and suitable waste treatment technologies to protect the environment.
However, most of modern technologies are normally expensive and not suitable to the Vietnam’s condition, because most of the technologies require waste classification.
"The viewpoints of Vietnam's waste treatment technology must first be safe and environmentally-friendly," said the deputy PM.
Currently, waste in Vietnam is basically treated by burying, which is harmful to the environment. Meanwhile, the piloting of other technologies following the models applied in many countries was not successful due to failure in waste classification, and high price is another concern of Vietnam.
On the basis, Deputy PM Dung asked the Ministry of Science and Technology to coordinate with other ministries and sectors to verify and assess economic-technical indications of the waste-to-energy technology of INTEC company.
The Ministry of Industry and Trade was assigned to work with relevant ministries and agencies to calculate the price of power generated by solid waste-to-energy plants.
As for businesses, Deputy PM Dung underscored the need to design specific projects for pilot implementation, while reminding enterprises to consider the possibility of producing lines and equipment domestically to reduce costs.
