Urban solid waste management and treatment to energy has become more and more critical in big cities in Vietnam, such as Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, Hanoi, overburdening the local governments.

The central government of Vietnam has stressed in the recent development master plan that landfill of municipal solid waste must be reduced by 80% by 2025. This forces the cities to take action now to improve the situation by upgrading their waste policy.

Ho Chi Minh City has called for solutions to treat a new MSW treatment complex at a site about 50km from city center, in which 1,000 tons/day out of over 8,000 tons/day of city's MSW will be used to generate electricity. There will be two more projects to follow (i.e. one project of 1,000 tons/day and one project of 2,000 tons/day) to be put into operation by 2030. Besides, there are many other smaller WtE projects (around 50-100tons/day) in surrounding HCM City areas can be used for trial purpose and, if successful, for piloting. Projects in other cities will follow, e.g. in Hanoi the problem is acute as well, the city generates municipal solid waste in the amount of 7,000 t/d.

Finnish solutions in waste-to-energy are known as leading globally. Offering of the competitors' already revealed imperfect features. This makes the expertise of Finnish companies and offering in solid waste management and W2E even more competitive and interesting for potential project owners and local authorities.
