Producer in Vietnam employs Danish Technology
In a commendable example of technology transfer, Jutland-based C.F. Nielsen A/S has completed the first full briquetting plant in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam. The plant processes clean wood, bark and potentially other types of available biomass. The new factory opening took place in Can Tho on 26 January, this year. The inauguration ceremony was attended by many visitors, both national and from around the world, who witnessed the first briquettes emerging from the production lines.
The new plant is owned by Thuy-Son Group (Daviwood), which also possesses its own nursery and plantation. This means that there is full control of the biomass from seeds to harvesting, which provides customers of the briquettes with full transparency throughout the manufacturing process and ensures sustainability.
Initially, the briquetting plant will process acacia wood from the FSC and FSC-COC certified forest in the province of Ca Mao in the South of Vietnam.
