The High Command of Chemistry's Centre for Environment Treatment Technology and Japan's Shimizu Corporation held a ceremony in Hanoi on September 4 to announce a memorandum of understanding on the cooperation and plan to test a dioxin decontamination project at Bien Hoa airport in the southern province of Dong Nai. The activity aims to overcome the consequences of the toxin left over from the war and study technologies to master dioxin treatment. A representative from Shimizu Corporation introduced a soil washing technology which is a combination of soil washing and burning technology which could reduce waste and strengthen the economy. The project will begin in November 2018 and soil washing will be carried out from mid-January to April 2019.

According to assessments from Vietnam and the US, some 500,000 cubic meters of dioxin-contaminated land in the airport needs to be treated, but it requires a large amount of capital and technology.
