The project AKIZ (integrated wastewater concept for industrial zones in transition and developing countries, using the industrial zone Tra Noc in Can Tho) is the predecessor of the project TAKIZ.

The work was carried out between November 2009 and July 2016 under the direction of IEEM gGmbH. An abstract is provided below.


Due to the rapid economic development over the past two decades, there are now more than 200 registered industrial zones in Vietnam. The number will continue to increase in the years to come. Most of the industrial zones have no, or only inadequate, waste water infrastructures. This leads to considerable environmental pollution and risks to public health. The purpose of the AKIZ project is the development of an integrated management concept ensuring sustainable operation of waste water systems in industrial zones in Vietnam. In addition to technical aspects, such as decentralized and centralized waste water treatment, the scheme also includes economic issues.
