Result of application: BUSADCO products which have been widely applied in many cities and provinces, in which, the products for environmental protection have been applied in 48/63 provinces and cities and exported to foreign countries (Malaysia, Laos). Especially, there have been 13 provinces and cities promulgated the policy on application of BUSADCO’S technology in their areas such as Ba Ria - Vung Tau, Khanh Hoa, Binh Dinh, Phu Yen, Nghe An, Thai Binh, Hung Yen, Vinh Phuc, Ho Chi Minh City, Hue, Quang Ngai, Quang Tri and Nam Dinh. These products have also been applied in ODA projects of multilateral cooperation such as WB, ADB... and bilateral cooperation such as JICA, France, Switzerland, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain...
Application of typical products: In Ba Ria - Vung Tau province, the new system for rainwater collection and odor control and technical trenches were applied mandatorily. The drainage systems on 114 streets and 34 alleys in Nha Trang city - Khanh Hoa province were improved and upgraded with the application of BUSADCO’s products by using WB funds. The new system for rainwater collection and odor control were installed in the whole of Quy Nhon city - Binh Dinh province by using WB funds. This product was also installed in the cities of Phu Yen province. 634 new systems for rainwater collection and odor control were installed in Dong Hoi city - Quang Binh province by using ADB funds. 213 new systems for rainwater collection and odor control were installed in Quang Ngai province. With JICA funds, 3,000 new systems for rainwater collection and odor control were installed in Hue city. BUSADCO products of P.R.C pipes and box culverts, P.R.C drainage ditches, new system for rainwater collection and odor control were used in Vinh city - Nghe An province. BUSADCO products of P.R.C pipes and box culverts, P.R.C drainage ditches, new system for rainwater collection and odor control and urban septic tanks were used in Dien Chau district, Nghe An province. BUSADCO wastewater drainage and treatment system with small and medium capacity using Danish ODA funds was constructed for pilot performance by the Department of Science and Technology – Ministry of Construction. The products of P.R.C pipes and box culverts, P.R.C manhole with thin walls in conjunction with joints and P.R.C irrigation ditches were applied in Thai Binh province in installing 13.5 km of traffic ditches, 50 km of P.R.C irrigation ditches in 54 communes; the design for construction drawings has been prepared and BUSADCO products also were supplied for construction of the dyke No.6 with the section from K33 + 020 to K35 + 760 in Dong Minh commune and the dyke No.5 with the section from K22 + 300 to K23 + 300 in Nam Thinh commune, Tien Hai district, Thai Binh province. The precast reinforced concrete and fibrous concrete channels, ditches with thin walls were applied in Vinh Phuc province with the installation of 53 km of P.R.C irrigation ditches in 43 communes. The electrical manholes, P.R.C tombs, technical trenches, P.R.C urban septic tanks as well as P.R.C slow filtration tanks and domestic water tanks with thin walls were applied in Hanoi city.
In Ho Chi Minh City: the products of P.R.C technical trenches, new system for rainwater collection and odor control and P.R.C manhole with thin walls in conjunction with joints were applied in the project of upgrading Nguyen Hue Street. The approved projects and designs of construction drawings with the application of BUSADCO products include: The renovation works on Tran Nao, Hoang Huu Nam streets, the project of Thu Thiem urban area...
