   Raymundo said the modern technology is being introduced in the country through the Philippine Recycle Green Energy. About 11 hectare of lands in Barangay Daang-Pare have been chosen as the possible site of the multi-billion peso solid garbage processing plant which systematically will segregate waste coming from households, commercial establishments and industrial firms in Bataan.

   Mayor Raymundo said the first of its kind project would do away with the expensive sanitary landfill with the new technology automatically separating the refuse  by  converting  them into pellets like ” longanisa size ” to be used as fuel for the  70 MW power plant.

   The prototype disposal system unlike the incinerator plant closed in  Quezon City  several years ago is an environment friendly because it emits less  hazardous particles  compared to other systems where  diesel fuels are being used in the operations, Raymundo said.

   Bataan Governor Albert Raymond S. Garcia led the delegation composed of Raymundo, Limay mayor Lilver Roque and Mariveles mayor Jessie Concepcion last month who inspected the waste processing plant operating in South Korea.

   Meanwhile , Victor Lee , Vice President of the Philippine Recycle Green Energy, the proponent of the  waste processing plant has guaranteed the safe and reliable performance of the highly-breed power plant using pellets .He added that the South Korean technology has surpassed the Japanese expertise in manufacturing first class waste processing machinery.

   Lee added that the historical background and  the  determination of the present  political leaders who have been continuously pursuing  development programs and feasible projects for  the  industrial growth of the province make Bataan an ideal location for the said plant.
