DENR hails rehab, re-engineering of Tondaligan

By November 13, 2022Inside News


DEPARTMENT of Environment and Natural Resources-Environmental Management Bureau (DENR-EMB) cites Tondaligan Ferdinand Rehabilitation and Re-engineering project launched by the city government on November 4, 2022 as a role model for other local government units (LGUs) with similar garbage disposal and management problems like Dagupan City.

DENR-EMB National Director Engr. William Cuñado cited the project during its commencement ceremony at the Old Tondaligan Ferdinand Dumpsite Facility to officially  start the rehabilitation of the area.

He said the city’s re-engineering project should inspire more local governments, industries and other sectors “to showcase their knowledge in cleaning up the environment and convert solid waste dumpsites into clean and productive eco-parks, as if previous dumpsites did not exist.”

Meanwhile, DENR-EMB Regional Director Engr. Maria Dorica Naz-Hipe lauded the free waste to energy facility that will translate to total closure of the 60-year-old open dumpsite in Dagupan City.

She hailed the  W2W project in Dagupan City as a pilot area of the waste-to-energy facility not only in Region 1 but in the entire Luzon.

The Sure Global Waste to Worth Innovations (W2WI) Facility worth US 11 million that will be established at no cost to the city government of Dagupan, can load up to 30 tons of garbage every day and can convert plastic wastes into 6,000 liters of diesel fuel and food wastes into 4,000 kilograms of methane gas.  (Leonardo Micua)
