E-Waste Backdoor Route for  Wired .  Port of Hai Pong overview. Viet Nam 2014.  In order to supply the Vietnamese recycling sector, a minor yet significant route of e-waste smuggling has grown between Vietnam and China. E-Waste arriving from the United States, the European Union, Japan and Hong Kong (China) avoid inspection in the port of Hong Kong and dock in the port of Hai Pong. From there, electronic materials of various nature, mostly computer parts and old cathodic ray tubes monitors, are recycled and sent over to China through the port of Mong Cai. Taking advantage of unclear regulation on the permanence of the e-waste in the country, the vietnamese have built their own processing plant in Klen An, a small village in Hai Pong.  From there are transferred by road to storage facilities in the province of Quang Ninh. Mong Cai is located across from the Chinese province of Guanxi. The e-waste crosses into China on boats along the river forming the international border.  It has been estimated that as much as 90%  of the e-waste passing through Vietnam is destined to re-export. However, this maybe no longer true. Viet Nam is absorbing and recycling an uncounted amount of waste in the laboratories of Klen An.
