Boracay Water's waste-to-energy project gets 'first proponent status'
MetadataShow full item record
Boracay Island Water Co., Inc. (Boracay Water) on Friday said its proposal for the establishment of a waste-to-energy plant has received "first proponent status" from the local government unit. Manila Water Total Solutions (MWTS) submitted the unsolicited proposal before Boracay Island was shut down for a major clean-up in late April. “[Our proposal] is considered as the primary project they consider for their PPP (Public-Private Partnership). So, it’s the first option already. Meaning to say, having submitted our proposal to the LGU, it’s the first option they will have to look into before accepting other offers from other companies,” Boracay Water General Manager and Chief Operating Officer Joseph Michael A. Santos said during a media briefing on Friday. Mr. Santos declined to give details on the proposed waste-to-energy plant, which is aimed at addressing the solid waste management problem in Boracay.
