Vietnam Hanoi Allocates 2K Square Meters more for Waste-to-energy Project

The authorities of Vietnam’s capital city of Hanoi have agreed to allocate 1,950 square meters more for the Soc Son waste-to-energy project, the municipal Department of Planning and Architecture has said. The size adjustment came after the city changed the planning for a landfill and a road of the project into an ash processing zone. The change will also increase the construction density in some areas. The total area for the project has been raised to 32,251 square meters. Soc Son waste-to-energy project requires an investment of VND7 trillion ($301.72 million). It has a capacity to process 4,000 tons of waste daily to generate 75 million kilowatts per hour (kWh).
