A consortium is going to develop a solid waste-to-energy facility for Quezon City, Filippine.
This integrated solid waste management facility will be able of processing and converting up to 3,000 metric tons per day of the city’s municipal solid waste into 42 megawatts of renewable energy, enough to power 60,000 to 90,000 homes. The volume of solid waste as a result of economic growth and urbanization has become a challenge for local governments to ensure effective and sustainable management of waste: an integrated solid waste management facility is a sustainable approach to society’s use of resources to reduce the amount of waste that must be placed in landfills for disposal while being environmentally responsive.
This waste to energy facility will provide an environmental, sustainable, long term, world-class waste management solution that will eliminate the need for landfilling and will provide Quezon City with other important fiscal and socio-economic benefits.
