The increasing volume of wastes generated, coupled with its major Green House Gas (GHG) contribution and subsequent impact on climate change, is exacerbated unsustainable SWM interventions among LGUs. These are the compounding reasons why government through the DENR-EMB and the NSWMC should push for the adoption of the appropriate SLF technologies possibly with the WtE complement.
To provide a comprehensive basis for the establishment, development, promotion, implementation and monitoring of SLF technologies appropriate for Regions taking into consideration the technical, financial, socio-political, legal and institutional factors. This may also include the adoption of appropriate Waste to Energy (WtE) technologies based on its contribution in achieving the waste diversion goal as indicated in the 2011-2016 Philippine Development Plan (PDP), with the value-added contribution of energy generation and GHG reduction.
The results of the proposed F/S should serve as a catalyst for the LGU to implement SWM in a holistic, economical and efficient manner. The F/S should be able to determine the financial feasibility as well as the most appropriate implementation site(s) in the region as well as local and/or foreign technologies that can be adopted considering the Philippines in general. It will serve as a possible proof-of-concept case to achieve an improved waste management system through reuse, recycling, composting and other resource recovery activities by 2022.
