Cần Thơ Waste-to-Energy Factory


Description

Vietnam’s first waste-burning power plant, located in the Mekong Delta city of Cần Thơ, was financed by China’s Everbright International and built by Power China, the project contractor. The US$47 million project is commissioned for 22 years; it can process 400 tons of household waste and generate 150,000 kWh of electricity per day (60 million kWh/year) – using solid waste that was previously put into landfill or incinerated without generating any electricity. The plant also incorporates a wastewater treatment facility; its waste to energy technology and gas emissions fully comply with the Euro 2010 Standard.


Products Used

During construction of the Cần Thơ plant infrastructure, a Penetron Vietnam-certified team from Zhong Yi Feng Construction worked quickly to seal any active leaks in the concrete structures with PENEPLUG, a rapid-setting, crystalline-based repair mortar. In a next step, the interior surfaces of the concrete wastewater treatment tanks and canals were coated with an application of PENETRON, an integral crystalline waterproofing material. In a final step, the floors of the Cần Thơ plant were sealed with PENESEAL FH floor hardener.
