Research and treatment of air pollution by TiO2 nanomaterials

Nowadays, strong development and lack of pollutant control in many economic sectors have made environmental pollution more severe than ever before. Many industries such as consumer goods production and food process… have dismissed poisons that can damage human ecology and cause serious diseases for humans by their release into air, water resources. The development of nano technology, of which, typical material, nano TiO2 can help to clean the environment.

Technology to detoxicate herbicides/ dioxin infected soil by bioremediation

From 1999 to 2009, scientists from The Institute of Biotechnology, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology, researched several technologies to detoxicate dioxin infected soil by bioremediation at old military bases in the central city of Da Nang. The results show that in laboratories or pilot fields from 0.5 to 100 cubic metres, the pasteurization effectiveness reached from 40 to 100 pgTEQ per day.

Research, development, manufacture, and application of the fluorescent X-ray spectrometer in Vietnam

The fluorescent X-ray spectrometer is widely used in the world to analyze ultimate compositions qualitatively and quantitatively independent from their chemical link. A notable advantage of this spectrometer is quick analysis that does not damage models which can exist in many different states such as solid, liquids or gas. At the end of 1989, Doctor Le Quang Huy and his colleagues at the Institute of Materials Science were successful in researching and manufacturing the first fluorescent X-ray spectrometer in Vietnam. Upon this, scientists have continued to research and upgrading products and promoting application in many provinces and cities in Vietnam with positive results achieved.

VHI-18B noxious industrial solid waste incinerator

Scientists from the Institute of Environment Technology under the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology successfully produced a VHI-18B noxious industrial solid waste incinerator. The exhaust fumes of the incinerator met Vietnamese standard TCVN 6560-1999.

Varistor ZnO and lighting technology

Researching, finishing and manufacturing lighting technology in place of imported products are an indispensable and meaningful demand in Vietnam now.

Over the last 10 years, researches on new lightning arresters made by Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences have achieved good results. Dated April 12th, 2010, Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences held the acceptance of the trial project “Research, apply 5th generation Varistor into manufacturing anti-thunder equipments. This project put advances in technology of the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology into practice based upon previous research results. Then, promoted research and application into production to create new products with improved quality.
