A Makati City-based company plans to build a waste-to-energy facility in Catanduanes province using a Singaporean technology.

Green energy expert Opus Energy Solutions Inc. together with the province of Catanduanes plan to create a waste-to-energy facility that will adopt the renewable energy technology of Singapore in an effort to address waste and energy issues being experienced in the province.

The two organizations will bring Singapore's emission standard to the nation, maximizing the transformation of solid waste from landfill and other collection equipment into electricity. It is also possible to use its by-products as useful materials.

To start the project, Opus Energy President and CEO Rafael Javier Eubra and Singapore Management Consultancy Managing Partner Ng Hua Chong signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) last month with Catanduanes Rep. Hector Sanchez and other provincial local government representatives.

One of the designs from Opus Energy, held by the company’s partner, in principle, is endorsed by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and has a buyback agreement with the National Power Corp.

“What we use in our power plant is solid waste and convert it to electricity.” Eubra stated.

The process includes recovering solid wastes and transforming it into useful energy in the most efficient, safest and commercially viable way possible.

“We get endorsements from these government agencies. So, with the MoU, we are to build a power plant — a waste-to-energy power plant — in Catanduanes,” Eubra said.

“We are also looking into the possibility of combining desalination with waste-to-energy power plant similar to Singapore project as combined power and desalination plant,” Eubra said.

The official also explained that the facility can produce distilled water through multi stage flash (MSF) by utilizing steam cycle condensation.

Singapore Management Consultancy is an entity that specializes in providing consultation to interested parties to share Singapore’s wealth of experience in public or private sectors.

On the other hand, Opus Energy is a Makati-based energy solutions company founded by a group of entrepreneurs that develop solar farms, wind energy, wave energy and other sources of green sustainable energy.
