The Dana-Italia and Dana-Australia companies have been fined for improperly implementing environmental impact reports and not having certificates of completion for environmental protection work in the operation phase.

The firms are located in the Thanh Vinh Industrial Complex in Da Nang.

Local authorities said the two steel companies – which started operation in 2006 – have discharged untreated fumes, dust and waste water into the environment.

They also buried a large amount of slag, polluting nearby residential areas.

Residents living around the plants have repeatedly gathered in front of the companies’ gate demanding they halt production.
