The Long An Provincial People’s Committee has issued an investment license to Vietnam Waste Solutions Inc. (VWS) for its Green Environment Technology Park project in the Mekong Delta province’s Thu Thua district.

The project covers an area of about 1,760 ha with total capital of $450 million and will be implemented in three phases. The first phase, with capital of $150 million, will be conducted over five years and once completed will treat 40,000 tonnes of waste per day from Long An province, Ho Chi Minh City, and elsewhere in the southern key economic region.

“The project applies advanced waste treatment technologies and the transfer of technology will help improve knowledge among experts and engineers in the country,” CEO of VMS, Mr. David Duong, told the presentation ceremony. “It will contribute positively to the protection of public health and create a green and clean environment.”

It will be developed, monitored, implemented and operated by US specialists using the most advanced waste solution technologies in the world.

According to Chairman of the Long An Provincial People’s Committee, Mr. Do Huu Lam, the province is committed to facilitating the quick implementation of the project and the completion of administrative procedures.

This will be the second environmental project implemented by California Waste Solutions Inc., the owner of VWS, following the Da Phuoc Integrated Waste Management Facility in Ho Chi Minh City.
