Firm offers plan for Inayawan landfillCebu Daily News
Cebu City’s Solid Waste Management Board (SWMB) recommended a private company to help the city government implement plans to improve the Inayawan Sanitary landfill in the next 25 years.
Greenergy Solutions Inc. (GSI) proposed a 25-year development project, which would include the remediation or removal of pollutants, and waste-to-energy components, said Jade Ponce, board chairman in a statement.
Ponce said the project wouldn’t cost the city a centavo.
It would implemented under the city government’s Private Public Partnership (PPP) program.
He said Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama would only have to enter into an Integrated Waste Management Agreement (IWMA) with GSI chairperson and chief executive officer Ruth P. Briones, who is also a convenor of the Zero Waste Philippines.
The Solid Waste Management Board passed a June 20 resolution endorsing the agreement to Rama.
The GSI proposal is a landfill gas and waste-to-energy project.
It will involve the construction of a waste-to-energy facility at the 17- hectare Inayawan landfill for the treatment of industrial, commercial and household wastes and the recovery of energy.
Ponce said the facility would process up to 1,000 tons per day of residual waste and daily fresh waste and produce about 24 megawatts of electricity.
The firm also plans to convert the landfill’s 1.8 million tons of waste as feedstock to thermal gasifier, which generates electricity to be sold as renewable energy. /Chief of Reporters Doris C. Bongcac
