This decision was reached during a meeting with civil servants of the Ministry of Environment’s General Department of Environmental Protection on 27 September 2023, with hopes to reduce the costs of operating factories and to effectively reduce waste pollution from factories.
In addition to addressing the issue regarding liquid waste, H.E. Minister raised two options for factories to use Solar Energy to replace the burning of fabrics and wood for steaming. This can be done by installing solar panels on factory rooftops, or through installing solar panels for rural household usage to compensate for the pollution and deforestation from the burning of fabrics and wood. Both solutions offered will promote the use of green energy, reduce pollution and reduce deforestation activity.
