On November 6th, 2018, at the Vietnam Environment Administration (Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment), the Project Management Board held a kick-off meeting to provide a service and technology component for plastics recycling technology in two craft villages in Hung Yen. The meeting aimed to unify the contents, implementation plan and activities of coordinating and managing the products of the bidding package.
This is a package under Component 3 of the “Implementing Best Available Techniques (BAT) and Best Environmental Practices (BEP) project in outdoor combustion to implement the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), through the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
The project is a practical action to implement the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants. Around the world, five countries – Cambodia, Laos, Mongolia, the Philippines and Vietnam are selected by UNIDO.
The project is a practical action to implement the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants.
This package was co-chaired by Vietnam Cleaner Production Center Co.Ltd (VNCPC) and its partners Vinacolour Co. Ltd., Viet Trung Environmental Technology Co. Ltd in two plastic recycling villages Minh Khai and Phan Boi (Hung Yen), during 2 years (2018 – 2020).
The purpose of the tender package is to survey, feasibility study, identify and apply BAT/BEP solution to improve the production process, reduce the amount of waste generated in the production process while reducing emissions. Non-destructive organic pollutants (UPOPs) due to plastic waste burning activities.
Main activities of the project include:
Survey and evaluate the current status of plastic recycling technology in two craft villages
- Proposed BAT/BEP solutions
- Training and technology transfer for households
- Installing and testing two new technological lines in two craft villages
- Installation and testing of waste plastic recycling line to create useful products such as brick, plastic tile, plastic fence, tray, plastic tray, …
- Measurement and analysis of economic and environmental efficiency before and after project implementation.
