Garcia stressed that this technology which is now widely adopted in South Korea and Japan is suitable to Bataan where  the  expected economic growth would further improve with the influx of foreign and local investors due to the sufficient , cheaper and stable power supply .

Victor Lee, vice president of Philippine Recycle Green Energy, said that the proposed $ 200 million waste to energy plant would derive its fuel from solid waste collected from households, commercial establishments and industrial firms in the eleven towns including four industrial zones, and this City.

The project  reportedly categorized under the  government built operate transfer (BOT) scheme will  become operational in two years after an agreement is formally inked between the Bataan provincial government and South Korean proponents, Lee said.

Lee cited the political leaders’ desire to improve the sanitation and garbage collections with the installation of the state of the art recycling  facility in the province. This would also bring the historic Peninsula to the top echelon as  investment haven for Korean capitalists.

The waste recycling facility is the first of its kind to be established in the country and perhaps in Southeast Asian countries, Lee said.

According to Lee, study shows that the daily waste in Bataan of 1,000 tons could produce 500 tons of pellet-type fuel for the power plant project.

This new technology would need some 200 production staff composed of South Korean  and Filipino engineers to efficiently run the facility.
