Title of Project: Decentralized water resource circulation as a sustainable solution for plantation

 

Sector: Water pollution

 

Country: Vietnam

 

Lead Institution:    Hanoi University of Science and Technology

 

Co-PI Institution:    Hanoi University of Science and Technology

 

Partner(s):     VIEBA, PANDORA, VIETXANH CON-TECH., JSC, AVIPRO JSC., CECR

 

Final Budget:     $171,957.00

 

Project Length: 2 year

 

Research Objective:

 

Determine the possibility of municipal wastewater recycling to develop appropriate on-site plant systems, minimize domestic wastewater emissions into the environment, and repurpose waste nutrients.

 

Project Description:

The project aims to develop practices that promote Decentralized water circulation to reuse water and nutrients in domestic wastewater to support greenifying local areas without excessively exploiting the local natural resource. Effective measures and practices can conceivably change local water usage in different communities. 

The translation partners in this project, VIETXANH, and AVIPRO, have a multifunction facility, equipment, and technician ready for the LASER PULSE funded project in terms of R&D, manufacture, test, and deploy the water circulation system as the outcome of the project. Two other translation partners, the Vietba garment company with 120 women workers and the Pandora Education Park will host the water circulation system. Two complete systems will be designed, fabricated, and run at the hosts’ premises to prove the concept of cost-effective, flexible treatment configurations with innovative technologies to reclaim water to reuse water and nutrients in domestic wastewater to a flora system for greenery in the campus and developing a learning section. Based on the research results, the project team will perform propagation campaigns through public media, scientific publications, and policy communication about the concept of decentralized water resource circulation.       

 

Embedded Research Translation Product:

 Outputs:

  • Practices and mechanisms for mitigation of water pollution are put in place. Two products are wastewater treatment systems at the Vieba Garment Company (20 m3/day) and at the Pandora Educational Park (~10m3 /day).
  • Awareness- raising campaign
  • Two TV broadcasting environmental programs on national educational channel VTV and cable channel will be showed. Training courses for SMEs, provincial environmental, educational and industrial authorities will be organized.
  • Policy recommendations on promoting water circulation, especially at decentralised level will be developed and discussed in the policy dialog.
  • Journal article and/or book chapter, conference proceeding on performance of the systems will be additional awareness-raising products
