SMEC has been engaged by the Government of the Philippines, through the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) to conduct the feasibility study to determine the most appropriate and cost-effective waste-to-energy technologies for 178 local government units in the Manila Bay region.
SMEC’s scope of work includes:
- Data gathering and waste characterisation
- Value analysis and options statement
- Project analyses to include: technology integration and evaluation; emission analysis; economic and financial analysis; and social and environmental analysis
- Development of a decision planning tool
- Capacity building
Waste in the Manila Bay region has dramatically worsened over recent years, due to increased pollution carried by rivers and inadequate treatment of solid waste.
The objective of the project is to provide a comprehensive basis for the establishment, development, promotion and implementation of waste-to-energy technologies appropriate for the Manila Bay Region.
The study will be used to produce a comprehensive waste analysis and serve as a test case to achieve an improved waste management system through reuse, recycling, composting and other resource recovery activities.
