October 2022: The largest garbage power plant in Vietnam is about to operate the second phase
As planned, by mid-October 2022, Thien Y waste-burning power plant, the biggest of its kind in Vietnam, will operate phase 2, receiving about 3,000 tons of waste per day and producing about 30MW of electricity.
The Thien Y waste incineration plant project was approved by the Hanoi People's Committee from the end of 2017, with an investment capital of more than 7,000 billion VND, constructed and operated by foreign investors. Based on the design, when completed, the plant will receive and process 5,000 tons of garbage per day, equivalent to 60-70% of the current landfill waste in Hanoi. Thien Y waste incineration plant is considered as the largest waste power plant in Vietnam and ranked 2nd in the world.
Although currently the waste incineration plant only handles about 1,000 tons of waste per day in Hanoi and generates 15MW of electricity for production, when phase 2 of the project is completed, the plant will receive about 3,000 tons of waste per day and produce about 30MW of electricity. In the future, when operating all 3 phases, the plant is capable of receiving 5,000 tons of waste per day, capable of handling about 4,000 tons of garbage per day, equivalent to about 50-60% of the waste generated in the city (on average, Hanoi generates about 7,000 tons of garbage every day).
Currently, most of the waste in the capital is being buried manually at two landfill sites, Nam Son and Xuan Son. Over-dependence on two landfill sites, Xuan Son and Nam Son, has been significantly affecting the operation of the collection units, maintaining environmental sanitation as well as the lives of people along the route that the landfills are located and where the garbage trucks pass by.
