(Low carbon hotel project in Vietnam: Improving the energy efficiency of commercial buildings by utilization of high efficiency equipment) from 2016- 2018. At the end of the project, the total carbon emission reduction is 261 tons of CO2


Project name: Low carbon hotel – New energy management system for Vietnam (V-BEMS)

(Low carbon hotel project in Vietnam: Improving the energy efficiency of commercial buildings by utilization of high efficiency equipment) from 2016- 2018. At the end of the project, the total carbon emission reduction is 261 tons of CO2. With a contribution rate of 30% for the Vietnamese side, 70% for the Japanese side, the number of carbon credits to be distributed among the project members is 80 tons of CO2 for Vietnam and 181 tons of CO2 for Japan; The topic "Research and assessment of CO2 emissions in Ho Chi Minh City, propose solutions to build a low-carbon city" has built a map of the current status of CO2 emissions and absorption from emission sources such as: traffic, factories, population activities and absorption from typical vegetation in HCMC and propose solutions to reduce CO2 emissions to build a low-carbon city model. Map results can be divided into 4 distinct areas. The two areas with negative emissions are colored from red to light pink with emissions ranging from 14 tons CO2/year to 136 tons CO2/year and are concentrated in the Central District of Ho Chi Minh City and other districts. industrial parks and export processing zones are concentrated, but the density of trees and vegetation is quite low, but traffic activities and population density are very high, which leads to quite high total CO2 emissions. The topic has guided a group of students to win the Consolation Prize, the 20th Science Research Student Award - Eur├ęka in 2018 and receive the transfer of the research project "Application of GIS and remote sensing to estimate the total attractive CO2 potential". from vegetation in the city. HCM” for Nguyen Le Gia Environmental Technology Company Limited.

Assoc. Dr. Ho Thi Thanh Van has built strong research groups and created a professional scientific research working environment with the goal of training students, graduate students and doctoral students to become scientists. Children can contribute to promote scientific research and development. Assoc. Dr. Ho Thi Thanh Van always creates conditions for research team members to participate in international seminars and forums to learn from international experiences and approach. Funding for the active research group is taken from the projects and topics of the research group. Assoc. Dr. Ho Thi Thanh Van is currently the leader of the nanotechnology and renewable energy research group at the University of Natural Resources and Environment of Ho Chi Minh City.

According to VOV Traffic News on October 6, 2021, in major cities of Vietnam, the shooting point is Ho Chi Minh City. In Ho Chi Minh City, traffic pollution accounts for about 65% of the total emissions of cities, the concentration of emissions in roads and densely populated areas exceeds the allowable threshold many times. According to the latest statistical results, the city now. Ho Chi Minh City has more than 9 million motorbikes, 500,000 cars of all kinds, etc., and vehicles using diesel, gasoline or fossil fuels have emitted a large amount of NO, CO2, SO2 gas. volatile organic compounds. In the past 5 years, 98% of the results sent from semi-automatic air monitoring stations did not meet the national technical regulations on air quality (VN Standards)

The Clean Fresh Air project is an air purifier project containing volatile organic compounds, focusing on toluene and n - hexane,

VOCs are caused by many sources such as traffic emissions, biological sources,

VOCs on contact can cause skin, eye and respiratory irritation and can cause unconsciousness with short-term exposure to high concentrations of VOCs. Long-term exposure to high concentrations of VOCs damages organs, including the central nervous system, liver and kidneys, causing cancer. Causes occupational diseases: occupational tanning disease, occupational oil nodule disease, extremely dangerous marrow failure syndrome; Affects 3 types of blood cells (red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets). Manifestations of this disease are anemia, infection and bleeding due to thrombocytopenia.

According to the "Air quality monitoring program, emissions inventory at a series of points throughout the city. Ho Chi Minh City, then using a simulation program, "discharge zoning" conducted by the Institute of Environment and Natural Resources showed that traffic activities account for the highest proportion of emissions in HCMC. Notably, 97% of NMVOC (non-methane volatile organic compounds) emissions of the whole city are from traffic activities and the "leading" pollutant is motorbikes. It can be seen that motorbikes alone have "contributed" 65.4% of NMVOC to the air. Current commercial gasoline contains a number of toxic volatile organic compounds (such as n-hexane or toluene) that have adverse effects on human health. Commercial gasoline is a mixture of many components with specific functions that are combined to optimize both the quality and economy of the product. From the worrisome facts about human health. The Clean Fresh Air team brought to the project a project called "New Nanotechnology Clean Fresh Air Air Purifier". The group's topic focuses on solving the problem of air pollution at petrol stations caused by VOCs. It is mainly NMVOCs (non-methane volatile organic compounds) accounting for 64.5% - According to the Institute of Environment and Natural Resources pointed out.
