Ha Noi (Biz Hub) – Papermaker Lee & Man Vietnam Ltd's packing paper mill based in the Mekong Delta province of Hau Giang will go into operation later this year.

This was announced by the company at a press conference in Ha Noi on November 1.

Launched in 2014, the US$280 million mill has an annual capacity of 420,000 tonnes of packing paper. It is equipped with a wastewater treatment facility capable of handling 20.000cu.m. per day, a 50MW turbine within a hydropower plant and an automatic wastewater monitoring system.

The plant is expected to treat a total of nearly 14,000cu.m. of wastewater per day, Lee & Man Vietnam's Executive General Director Patrick Chung said.

The company's representative said its environment assessment report was approved in 2008 by the provincial authorities after being considered by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.

A $349 million paper pulp mill with a yearly capacity of 330,000 tonnes, which is located in Hau Giang Province, had also been licensed, but its construction has not started yet. — VNS
