In Vietnam, the local regulation and environmental impact are driving coal mining industry to reuse the large volume of wastewater it produces. The co-research project between National University of Civil Engineering (NUCE) and Mitsubishi Rayon Corporation (MRC) has started early 2013 to evaluate if the MRC membranes could be a great tool for treatment of coal mine wastewater for reuse. The experiment were conducted at one of coal mine plants in Quang Ninh province, Vietnam. It was found that pre-treatment of coal mine wastewater was an important part in the treatment process. The MRC membrane was a significant barrier to maintain stable and high quality effluent to meet the requirement of Vietnam national technical standard for domestic use.
