Vietnam aims to regulate up to 90% of industrial waste by 2025

Vietnam is looking to have 70-90% of waste in key industrial sectors subject to evaluation such that databases about it can be created and regulations introduced to deal with such waste by 2025.

The goal is part of the industrial environmental protection plan for the next five years which was recently approved by Deputy PM Trinh Dinh Dung.

The plan is designed to control sources of waste, minimise environmental incidents, recognise environmental issues in the coming period, and promote sustainable production and consumption.

By-products from power plants will be converted into building materials.

Under the plan, 80% of ash, slag and gypsum from power stations, chemical and fertiliser plants will be recycled and processed into manufacturing and construction materials.

Measures will be taken to promote the use of environmentally friendly bags at supermarkets and shopping centres with the ultimate goal of replacing non-biodegradable plastic bags.

Under the plan, risks will be identified towards introducing environmental protection policies for energy projects such as waste to energy, wind power and solar power, as well as for some other sectors.

Over the next five years, all enterprises in industry and trade will be educated on the laws and regulations on environmental protection.
