For example, within the last 10 years, the amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) has tripled in the city, from roughly 800,000 tons/year in pre-2007 to 2,400,000 tons/year in 2010. As the result, this situation challenges the home city of 6 million Vietnamese to reach out to experts and experienced organizations, looking for plausible solutions regarding its pollution issue. At the end of 2012, Hanoi authority approached Amsterdam with an appeal of a cooperation in solid waste management, in which the transfer of Amsterdam’s technology of Waste-to-Energy (WtE) is one of suggested options. However, there are various questions regarding the capability of Hanoi to invest in and handle the state-of-art technology, which has inspired the author for this research. The focus of this research is to assess the possibilities of cooperation between Amsterdam and Hanoi in the field of Solid Waste Management, with the case study of technology transfer in Waste-to-Energy.
