Vietnam wins Energy Global Awards 2009

Vietnam would be awarded for the project “Building brick and pottery continuous four-chamber kilns with rice husk gasification technology”, Energy Global Awards’ organization board has officially announced.

The Ministry of Science and Technology said that the project was carried out by the Energy Conservation Research and Development Center (Enerteam) since the beginning of 2009 at Tan Mai Ltd Company’s brick and pottery kiln in the Mekong Delta Province of Dong Thap.

The project aimed at raising energy usage effectiveness in making burnt clay products, reducing environmental pollution and enhancing usage of bio fuel instead of fossil fuel to soften the green house effect.

In addition, the project was targeted to find out technological solutions for the Mekong Delta to replace traditional brick kilns which have used old-style production methods, causing severe environmental pollution.
