The plant will be located at a site spanning 7.1 hectares and will primarily turn waste into compost, with trials taking place last year. Situated in an area specifically for domestic and industrial waste treatment in Vinh Tan commune of Vinh Cuu district, the plant has a daily capacity of treating 450 tonnes of waste and can operate for eight hours a day.
Approximately 80% of the organic waste received will be treated as compost, while roughly 5% of plastic bags will be recovered, recycled, and subsequently reused.
As part of the project Menart are to be in charge of supplying equipment, with work now underway to complete the waste sorting and composting apparatus, whilst continuing to facilitate operations aimed at expanding the plant. Menart’s facilities for the project will be made either in the nation or in Belgium, with the Belgian company sending its experts to the country in order to study the local conditions.
Berengere Menart, general director of Menart, outlined her confidence in co-operation with the firm’s Vietnamese partners, affirming her wish for greater technology collaboration with these associates in both environmental and agricultural projects moving forward.
Originally founded in 1961 with a primary focus on designing and manufacturing composting machines and waste sorting plants, Menart now operates across 60 countries throughout Asia, Europe, Africa, and America.
The firm has operated within the Vietnamese market since the late 1990s and has provided waste treatment equipment for plants in some Vietnamese localities such as Dong Nai, Soc Trang, Kon Tum, Ha Tinh, Thai Nguyen, and Ha Nam.
