Waste and environment management – industry’s top concern

As the country industrializes, urban centres will continue to grow, increasing pressure on the existing waste and water infrastructure. The Vietnam Environment Administration (VEA) has reported that solid waste is expected to reach a rate of 44 million tons annually. In which, 46 percent of this solid waste is being discharged from urban areas, 17 percent from industrial production zones, and the remaining from rural areas, trade villages and the medical sector. About 80 percent of the waste is being buried; the rest is treated by burning or composting. Currently, the country has more than 450 landfills but only around 120 follow proper sanitary regulations. Besides, air pollution is also the big concern of this Country due to increasing coal power usage and pollution from vehicular emissions.
