Urbanization, together with the continuous growth of the population under the current socio-economic development of the country, creates a frequent migration from rural areas to urban areas for better living standards. Consequently, this trend significantly increases solid wastes, especially municipal solid wastes (MSW). According to MONRE, more than 50% of total MSW (35.6 thousand tons/day) came from the urban area compared to 28.4 thousand tons/day from rural areas. This requires waste management and treatment methods towards smart solutions, maximizing waste’s exploitation as feedstock for the energy industry and reducing negative impacts on the environment and human health. Despite the development in solid waste treatment solutions, the waste-to-power sector is still facing many challenges in extraction methods, finance, environmental standards, etc. Many questions arise about the future of this sector to align with the power development strategy and environmental protection & climate commitments.

With the aim to foster the efficient use of waste, follow the “WASTE IS A RESOURCE” principle to protect the environment, and contribute to the Net-Zero target by 2050, Vietnam Initiative for Energy Transition (VIETSE) has developed a potential solid waste scenario in Vietnam and analyzed the technical solutions to optimize this resource. Based on the output research, VIETSE created a visualization tool on the solid waste potential in Vietnam at the urban and industrial scale to contribute to realizing the future potential of this field in the energy transition with the goals of reducing environmental pollution reduction and protecting the climate. This tool is expected to support the investment decision-making process, develop effective waste management and treatment policies, and contribute to the energy industry development and environmental protection.
