Carbon free island initiative will handle environmental matters in the islet and the island.
Under the MOU, in the first phase, the Vietnamese and RoK businesses will provide environmentally friendly technologies to turn An Binh islet, three miles away from Ly Son Islands, into a carbon free islet to improve locals’ living standards and protect the environment.
The Vietnamese and RoK enterprises will apply plastics recycling technologies to help cope with plastic waste issues on Vietnamese islands.
Moreover, advanced desalination systems on An Binh to supply clean water for islanders and a wave power system with a capacity of 50 – 100kW on the island in 2020 will be installed to help reduce costs and solve environmental issues created by the use of diesel generators here.
