Some of the equipment and machines for the pyrolysis gasification process that will convert garbage into construction materials were delivered yesterday at the City’s Central Materials Recovery Facility. More machines and personnel will arrive in the coming days.
Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, who implemented the closure of the old dumpsite in Barangay Candau-ay recently, welcomes the delivery of the equipment necessary for the installation and commission of 1 set of pyrolysis gasification process with an environment pollution control device.
If fully operational, the pyrolysis equipment will turn all collected solid wastes into useful byproducts such as pavers, hollow blocks and other construction materials for the various infrastructure projects and in the maintenance of roads.
On the other hand, biodegradable wastes can be processed to become organic fertilizers.
With the closure of the open dumpsite in Barangay Candau-ay, all collected solid wastes and garbage in Dumaguete City will now be sorted in the Central Materials Recovery Facility.
Mayor Remollo aims to achieve the goal of a Zero Waste Dumaguete through the conversion of residual wastes into construction materials for public works coupled with the people’s cooperation in reducing consumption, practicing waste segregation and recycling.
