DANANG – The Danang City Department of Natural Resources and Environment is inviting foreign and domestic enterprises to register their interest in investing in the solid waste treatment plant with a designed capacity of 1,000 tons per day.
The plant will be located at the Danang City solid waste management complex and executed in the PPP (public-private partnership) form.
After July 3, 2022, the local government will invite competitive tenders to choose an investor.
The 30,000-square-meter project is expected to be under construction within two years in 2023 and 2024, with a total investment of nearly VND803 billion. It takes 12 years and 11 months to recover the cost of the investment. The waste treatment fee is not more than US$17/ton.
Reportedly, the implementation of the project partly helps the city achieve the goal of building an environmentally friendly Danang by 2025.
In addition, the project will meet the urgent needs for solid waste treatment in the city. Specifically, in 2019 (before the pandemic outbreak), the amount of solid waste generated every day that needed to be transported to the Khanh Son waste treatment (Danang’s main waste treatment area) for treatment was about 1,100 tons by the landfill method.
According to a 2018-2019 report by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) as well as the 2020 report by Danang Urban Environment JSC, by 2025, the amount of daily solid waste will be from 1,600-1,650 tons. Currently, the city will also run a waste-to-energy plant with a capacity of 650 tons daily at the complex.
That means, by 2025, more than 1,000 tons of daily solid waste will need to be treated.
