As one of the efforts to reduce CO2 emissions into the environment through finding renewable energy sources in Vietnam, Toyota Motor Vietnam (TMV) and Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) in collaboration with Vietnam Gardening Association (VACVINA) has deployed Biogas project from 2000 to 2004.
With total funding of US$ 480,000, this project helped convert the organic substances into fuel for the Animal Husbandry Sector, covering the whole country, and protecting forests by reducing the need for firewood.
In the first phase (2000-2002), the project was implemented in three Northern provinces (Vinh Phuc, Thai Nguyen, Hai Phong) with the support of technical training for 45 technicians and 69 biogas-digesters. In the second phase (2002-2004), TMV continued to implement the project in 6 economic geographical areas nationwide (North mountainous provinces, Red River Delta, Central Northern, Tay Nguyen, Central Southern, Mekong River and East Southern) of which each province was supported with 3 technicians and 3 biogas. Totally, there are 180 technicians trained and 60 bio-digesters were granted in this period.
Within the first 3 months in early 2008, TMV in collaboration with local departments of Hanoi city, Ho Chi Minh City and Vinh Phuc province launched environmental sanitation activities to respond to the “All people act for clean street”. In this campaign, TMV has donated more than 10 large dustbins to the management of 23-9 Park for cleaning the park area.
