|Objectives and Scope||CEIL aims to develop and invest in WTE projects with a combined capacity of up to 7,500 tons of MSW daily in Viet Nam. Each WTE plant will treat MSW, recover waste heat for power generation and supply to the local grid, purify waste gas, and treat leachate. By 2028, 2.5 million tons of MSW will be treated per year, 790 GWh of electricity will be generated annually, and approximately 787,300 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e) emissions will be avoided on average per year.|
|Status of Development Objectives||Developing|
|Status of Operation/Construction||The first project, Can Tho Project, has been fully operational since November 2019. ADB is working towards making further disbursements under the facility.|
|Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
ADBs Midterm Review of Strategy 2020 outlined 10 strategic priorities of ADB operations to address the development challenges in Asia and the Pacific Islands. The project supports three of those priorities: (i) environment and climate change, (ii) infrastructure development, and (iii) private sector development and operations.
ADBs country partnership strategy for Viet Nam, 2016-2020 aims to foster inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth. The project is aligned with two of the three pillars of the strategy; (i) increasing the inclusiveness of infrastructure and service delivery; and (ii) improving environmental sustainability and climate change response.
The project aligns with ADBs energy policy which encourages interventions designed to shift reliance on fossil fuel sources for energy to renewable forms of energy to slowdown the growth of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and help countries achieve energy self-sufficiency.
The project is aligned with the commitments made by Viet Nam to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
|Environmental Aspects||The project entails a loan for general corporate finance and although specific subprojects have not yet been identified they are expected to be category B for environment, as the technologies and systems that will be used in the subprojects are technologically mature and proven capable of minimizing emissions to meet the stringent EU2010 emission standards. The subprojects are unlikely to have significant adverse environmental impacts that are irreversible, diverse, or unprecedented.|
|Involuntary Resettlement||The project is classified as category B involuntary resettlement. CEIL is planning smaller MSW WTE plants in Viet Nam than those it owns and operates in the PRC, which have variously caused major, non-major and no involuntary resettlement impacts. While subproject facilities in Viet Nam are not expected to require significant involuntary economic and physical displacement, government land grants for each concession in the form of land use rights may still produce non-major involuntary displacement impacts on residents or land users.|
|Indigenous Peoples||The project is classified as category C for indigenous peoples. The project is not expected to directly or indirectly affect the dignity, human rights, livelihood systems, or culture of the country's 53 recognized ethnic minority groups, which are concentrated mostly in the country's mountainous rural areas. Subprojects will be in urban and peri-urban areas where no distinct or vulnerable ethnic minority groups are expected to be adversely or beneficially affected.|
