Metro Clark Waste Management Corporation (MCWMC) has submitted an unsolicited proposal to construct a USD 210 million waste-to-Energy facility in Clark, Pampanga.
The facility is estimated to be completed in three years, and MCWMC is hoping to start the construction by mid-2020. Once completed, the planned waste-to-Energy facility will be able to process 2,000 tons, generating 35 megawatts of electrical renewable Energy.
The current Clark Integrated Facility only has capacity to hold 30 – 40 million tons of garbage. On average, the facility collects nearly 3,000 tons per day, and it is expected that the volume of garbage collection will grow over the next years.
MCWMC, which is partly owned by German conglomerates BN Ingenieure GmbH and Heers & Brockstedt Umwelttechnik GmBH, envisions that the solid waste management facility in Clark will move from just landfilling to using modern recycling technology and renewable Energy generation.
