Ha Tinh agencies late last week had a working session with Formosa Ha Tinh on the treatment of the company’s waste.

Formosa Ha Tinh was asked to provide documents on the environmental impact assessment as well as industrial waste sources and waste treatment solutions.

The company was also requested to provide a list of individuals and companies involved in the carrying and treatment of industrial waste.

Formosa’s representatives said the company had signed a hazardous waste treatment contract with the Phu Ha Environment Service Company, in Phu Ninh district in Phu Tho province. 

About 145 tons of waste have been carried from Formosa to the plant for treatment since August 2015.

The Ha Tinh Department of Natural Resources and Environment has examined the 145 tons of waste to find if Phu Ha Company kept the waste at its treatment plant in Ky Anh district in Ha Tinh province, or if it carried the waste to Phu Tho province for treatment.

The department said there was no waste treatment plant in Ha Tinh province which has technology to treat hazardous waste.

The Ky Anh Urban Environment Company has been asked to carry 267 tons of waste sludge now buried in a farm to a waste treatment plant owned by Phu Ha Company in Ky Anh district in Ha Tinh province and store the sludge there.

Vo Ta Dinh, director of the Ha Tinh Department of Natural Resources and Environment, said late last week the analysis of the waste sludge now buried in the farm in Ky Anh Town in Ha Tinh province had concluded.

According to Dinh, the work of excavating, packing and carrying away the 267 tons of waste in the farm to other places to avoid environmental pollution was still being implemented.

Meanwhile, Nguyen Chi Thuc, director of the Phu Ha Environment Company, confirmed that Phu Ha, based in Phu Tho province, signed a contract with Formosa Ha Tinh on waste treatment, and Phu Ha has carried the waste to Phu Tho for treatment.

As for the waste treatment plant in Ky Anh district in Ha Tinh, it is still under construction and trial operation, and has not been licensed to operate officially.

Therefore, he said the waste must not be treated in Ha Tinh province.
