ANATECH and Ecoeye, participated.

Through the dispatch, the Ministry of Environment has started to support the Korean company's project to collect landfill gas at the Zani Khan landfill in Mandalay, Myanmar, and to supply high-efficiency Cookstoves, a stove-type cooking device.

the Zani Khan landfill in Mandalay, which is being promoted by HANATECH, which has domestic technology for the only landfill gas power generation facility in Korea.
