The PM made the remark on May 28 while visiting local energy company Stockholm Exergi and multinational networking and telecommunications firm Ericsson, as part of his ongoing official visit to Sweden.
The management of Stockholm Exergi, which is renowned for its work in energy transformation and waste recycling, said the company is willing to transfer its latest recycling-based energy transformation technology to Vietnamese firms and localities, particularly Hanoi.
In 2018, Stockholm Exergi supplied 8,176 GWh for the heating demand of 800,000 residents in Stockholm. About 90 percent of its heating system is run on recycled fuel resources, and the company is working towards making Stockholm a city free from fossil fuel.
