K-Water, Hanwha E&C to boost waste treatment in VietnamK-Water and Hanwha E&C will be entering the Vietnamese sewage business. The companies said Tuesday they signed a memorandum of understanding with the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee on a public-private partnership over a wastewater treatment project, at the Plaza Hotel in central Seoul. Although Ho Chi Minh is the largest city in Vietnam, its wastewater treatment facilities can only process 10 percent of the waste the city produces. The city suffers from major problems including flood damages during the monsoon season and water pollution. The Korean state-run company and the Korean private construction company have proposed building a 300,000 square-meter (74 acre) treatment facility in the Tan Nhut area of Ho Chi Minh City.
