Japan helps in source water treatment

The Halvo Co., Ltd from the Japanese prefecture of Kagoshima has been implementing a project on source water treatment at 29 localities in central Ha Tinh and southern Vinh Long provinces.

The project, launched three years ago, is supported by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
For river and well water, the company has been using H-O-H technology to purify, and for waste water from factories and industrial zones, it has been applying Kiyomarukun technology to treat, said Halvo Director Yagyu Yoshiharu. 

In April, the company invested JPY100 million (US$1 million) in building a water treatment factory in Long An province’s Phuc Long industrial zone. At present, the factory, which aims to produce materials for water treatment, has been put into operation.

Currently, Japan has over 200,000 small- and medium-sized enterprises operating in various fields, mainly in support industry.
