A sum of $6.4 billion was invested in Tin Thanh Group, a pioneer in using renewable energy and reducing global emissions, by Acuity Funding on September 25 to implement one manufacturing project in Vietnam and two others in South Carolina in the United States.
Around $1 billion will be used to develop four biomass power plants and thousands of hectares of sorghum cultivation in central and southern Vietnam, and a further $1.7 billion will be allocated for Tin Thanh Group (TTG) to build a tyre retreading and truck service plant in South Carolina to serve over one million trucks in the US with the goal of reducing emissions, saving costs, and transitioning to green energy.
The remaining $3.7 billion in funding will be spent on the establishment of a green hydrogen manufacturing facility in South Carolina.
Land grant approvals and support have also been given to TTG from the state of South Carolina, totalling huge incentives of over $500 million.
TTG is partnering with its foreign partner to implement this project. The results will contribute to revolutionising the automotive industry and replacing outdated and polluting coal-fired power plants.

During the ceremony, Tran Dinh Quyen, chairman of TTG, said that the above projects have been approved by Vietnamese and US authorities, and many patents have been registered.
“The business models and technologies for the projects are highly practical, so they can be applied on a global scale. The business activities will raise the annual trade between Vietnam, Australia, and the US to hundreds of billions of dollars, and bring significant bilateral benefits in the exchange of technology, capital, and labour,” Quyen said.
The signing ceremony was a historic milestone marking the largest cross-border trade transaction between Vietnam, the US, and Australia. It also attracted huge interest from representatives of the South Korean and Indian governments, who attended the ceremony.
