Through a quick test, the wastewater has a pH exceeding 7 times the allowable, and the bulb housing contains mercury and sulfur, which if not treated properly, will be very toxic.
The functional forces and the factory of the lamp system will hand over all the best waste to a hazardous waste treatment unit in Vinh Cuu district to collect.
In April 25, the police force will continue to distribute and exploit at some other questionable locations inside the factory to expand the investigation.
