Green chemistry project aims to reduce use of hazardous chemicals



The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Vietnam Chemicals Agency under the Ministry of Industry and Trade has launched a project promoting the application of Green Chemistry in Vietnam to support green growth and reduce the use and release of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and hazardous chemicals.

 "Vietnam is one of the pioneers in POPs issues and has a lot of experience in dealing with POPs left over from the war to the present,” Lai said, adding that that was the reason why the UNDP and GEF expect that Vietnam will lay the foundations as well as give the first lessons and experiments in this field.

The project will be carried out for three years with the support of UNDP and the Global Environment Fund (GEF).
