Pagbilao power station cited for eco waste management


LUCENA CITY, Quezon: The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Environmental Management Bureau in Quezon Province (EMB-Quezon) cited the Pagbilao Power Station (PPS) for strict compliance with the Ecological Solid Waste Management (ESWM) Act of 2000. The 735-megawatt power facility located in Pagbilao town was chosen, along with four local government units in Quezon by the DENR-EMB to participate in an exhibit to showcase best practices of compliant organizations. Melvin Fiegalan, Provincial Environmental Management Unit’s officer-in-charge, said the exhibit was aimed to “heighten environmental consciousness and generate greater participation and integration of efforts through the extended celebration of environmental protection concern and awareness.” Hazel Caasi, of TeaM Energy’s PPS, said that recovery and proper disposal of various waste products such as recyclables, biodegradables, residuals and other special waste have been fully integrated in the plant operations. Aside Pagbilao plant, the municipalities of Lucban, Gumaca, Mauban and Atimonan were also cited by the DENR-EMB for complying with the ESWM Act.
