On May 7-18, Ruiling and Liu Xin visited Hanoi for wastewater sampling under assistance of Tu Binh Minh’s group from VNU University of Science. During their stay, 5 types of DGTs were deployed and 24 h composite samples were collected at the inlet of Yen So WWTP for consecutive 7 days. They also collected composite water samples in Kim Nguu cannal and outlet of the plant. All the water samples were extracted immediately after collection every day. The sampling achieved its goals as expected.

Prof Tu Binh Minh is SCP partner in Hanoi, Vietnam. His group has interacted with us frequently since last September. Currently, we’ve successfully conducted PAS and WWTP sampling campaigns in Hanoi as we discussed in first meeting. We hope our collaborative relationship can be very long and fruitful.
