As forecasted by the Ministry of Science and Technology, the amount of urban solid waste until 2020 will reach 30 million tons, which is 2.6 times more than at present.

It is known that every year, the amount of discharged urban solid waste is 11.5 million tons. In our country, there are mainly 3 applied treatments including: landfill, biological incubation for organic fertilizer and burning technology scattered in a number of localities. Currently, there are about 26 treatment plants for solid waste, concentrated in large urban areas with a total designed capacity of approximately 5,000 tons/day.

Technology of solid waste disposal by landfill is the most applicable with nearly 460 waste landfills, but only 26% of the landfills are hygienic. So, scientists and managers said that this technology should be replaced by more advanced technology. Dr. Nguyen Van Lang, Chairman of Vietnam Association of Science and Technology said that the agency was encouraged to seek new ways to advance to the petitions of the government to ban on focused land filling technology.
