Spotlight on the technologies innovating in the treatment of waste generated in Vietnam

Currently, about 85% of the waste generated in Vietnam is being buried without treatment in landfill sites, 80% of which are unhygienic and pollute the environment. The national 3R (Reduce, Recycle, Reuse) campaign gained momentum with wastes being dumped into the nearest landfills. Majority of the companies in Vietnam’s solid waste management industry are state-owned with the technologies provided by the foreign countries, few of them are large multinational companies and have subsidiaries in Vietnam. Most of the technology providers are from Singapore, China, USA and European countries. However, adoption of technologies in the country is lower and is mainly focused on the hardware products. The disadvantage created by the unclear legislation in the industry compels oneself to utilize foreign methods to tackle waste. Numerous waste to energy technologies are being encouraged by the government to utilize the waste and make useful resources for further use.
