BANGKOK, 15 July 2015 -The Ministry of Industry is making progress in finding sites to accommodate industrial waste, with a few private entities having already expressed their intention to offer land for the sites.
Department of Industrial Works director-general Pasu Loharjun(พสุ โลหารชุน) spoke of the progress in finding a total of six sites to accommodate industrial waste, in line with the government policy to encourage appropriate waste management within each locality and mitigate the problem of illegal dumping of waste.
Mr. Pasu indicated that the joint study between the Ministry of Industry and Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) has determined that the waste management sites will likely be situated in the North, Northeast and East. There are now 2-3 private entities that have expressed their intention of providing the sites to be developed into industrial waste treatment complexes.
Using state land for the sites would mean the sites will be located in more remote areas, said Mr.Pasu
