80% of polluting firms taken off black list

TAY NINH — Eighty-seven (80.5 per cent) out of 108 factories have been removed from the pollution black list in the southwestern province of Tay Ninh, said Nguyen Hoang, deputy head of the provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment yesterday.

Most of the factories operate in the agricultural production sector.

Hoang said that waste treatment in 13 medical centres was now the biggest challenge facing the province because there were no funds from the Government to tackle the problem.
