INSEE Ecocycle continues the journey of “Together with farmers protecting the environment”
Over the past 7 years, “Together with farmers protecting the environment” project has created a positive change for agriculture and also for environment in 22 cities and provinces in Southern Vietnam from Ninh Thuan to Ca Mau. The project not only helps farmers to improve their ability to use right type and right dose of pesticides but also protects farmers and the environment by training spraying method, labor protection as well as collect and treat used pesticides packages safely.
In 2019, Plant Protection Department and Southern Regional Plant Protection Center together with the participation from 50 enterprises in the plant protection industry continued to implement “Together with farmers protecting the environment” project, including the collection and treatment of pesticides packages campaign. As a companion from the early days, INSEE Ecocycle did not only consult and built waste reservoirs but also provided specialized equipment to directly collected in 22 provinces as well as provide free logistics support for the project. During 2 weeks of implementation, INSEE Ecocycle received over 13,000 kg of pesticide packages. These wastes were delivered to INSEE plant in Hon Chong- Kien Giang province and handled safely by Co-processing technology in a cement kiln.
Mr Le Quoc Cuong – Director of the Southern Plant Protection Center shared: “The participant of INSEE, a company outside the plant protection industry has showed the meaning of the program as well as enhance sustainable development direction like INSEE’s mission. I hope that INSEE will continue the journey of “Together with farmers protecting the environment” in the coming years so that the used pesticide packages will be collected and treated safely”.
