Vietnam opens first factory to turn nylon into fuel

A factory with a daily capacity of recycling 9 tons of plastic bags into PO and DO fuel began operations April 20th in the central city of Da Nang.


Vietnam's first factory to turn nylon bags into fuel.
The VND120 billion (US$5.8 million) factory is the first phase of a 520 billion project to turn solid waste into fuel and environment-friendly coal and bricks. The second phase is underway.

The factory, the first of its kind in Vietnam, has been built by the Vietnam Environment Joint-Stock Company on a total area of 12 hectares located next to the Khanh Son garbage dump in Lien Chieu District, one of the city’s major landfills.


Statistics show 650 tons of garbage, 8% of which are nylon bags, are sent to the Khanh Son landfill daily.


Three tons of plastic bags can be recycled into one ton of oil thanks to the waste-to-fuel facility in the factory, said Nguyen Van Tuan, the director of the Vietnam Environment Joint-Stock Company.
