February 19, 2024

Authorities in Quang Ngai Province, located in central Vietnam, have fined a company VND330 million (US$13,500) for disposing of wastewater containing chemical levels, including poisonous ones, that were much higher than the permitted levels. In particular, police officers identified that the company had discharged wastewater containing cyanide, a highly toxic chemical compound, at a concentration more than 21 times the permitted limit. In total, the company was fined VND330 million ($13,500). The Quang Ngai authorities also forced the firm to deal with the environmental pollution caused by its violations. In October 2019, the provincial police caught the company red-handed discharging untreated wastewater into the environment.
