KOICA helps develop waste recycle technology

(VOV) -The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and Hanoi University of Science and Technology have agreed on a project to research waste recycle technology.

Under the 2013-2015 agreement signed in Hanoi on August 14 the Republic of Korean government will provide US$1.5 million in non-refundable aid to build a centre for developing recycling waste technology.

The project will not only improve research and analysis methods but also transfer waste recycle technology with a focus on electronic waste (e-waste).

The e-waste recycle is considered an effective solution to deal with serious environmental issues caused by discarded electronic devices such as television sets, telephones and computers.

The research of e-waste recycle will also help save natural resources for sustainable growth.
