Accordingly, the company will carry out the project in the green environment technological zone with a capital of USD450 million from the US investors.

According to Nathan Lane, US economic attaché, this is one of the key projects invested in by the US during the celebration of the 20 years of Vietnam – US relations.

Do Huu Lam, Long An Provincial Party Committee Deputy Secretary and Chairman of the Provincial People’s Committee, said that this was a large project among 645 foreign projects invested in the locality.

Under the project, the green environment technological zone will treat common waste, both non-hazardous and hazardous waste, electronic waste, medical waste and drainage mud from Long An Province and Ho Chi Minh City, and in time, the whole southern key economic region.

As planned, the zone will be invested to receive and treat 40,000 tons of waste each day.

The zone is the second environmental project by CWS after the successful Da Phuoc waste solutions campus in Ho Chi Minh City.

The projects have actively contributed in protecting the environment and communities’ health. In addition, they have created thousands of jobs for labourers, added capital to the budget and promoted socio-economic development in Long An Province, Ho Chi Minh City as well as the southern key economic region./.
