Engineer and lawyer, Founder of Spectrum Blue Steel, her legacy
Morong, Rizal is the pilot for biosphere, gassification process, ways of treating waste, incineration – prohibited in Philippines, emits toxic materials
Biosphere, waste in the chamber at 400 deg C, product goes to second chamber at higher temp, photo?? ash to produce carbon blocks or cement, end product of high temperature could be used to generate energy, partnered with Ronald Flynn from US, zero waste
Syngas, product of thermal transformation, at hight temperature, turbine, “synthesis gas”, organic fertilizer, synthetic gas
Morong landfill, 10-40 hectares, revenues to town, environmental cost or impact to town, water, another product, will be producing 53,000 gallons of water per hour, carbon zero emission, higher credit , 30 MW equals to 30 tons of carbon credits, Kyoto protocol, environmental issues, industial pollutants, committed to contribute, pay for the pollution they have commited, countries produce machines, operate that has zero carbon, producing carbon credit, clean air, industry will compensate producer
Why Morong? Montalban will be closing, will be transfered to Morong, MMDA, governor of Rizal, Cuerpo, feuding, political differences, incinerator not accepted in the town, proximity of biosphere to Morong landfill, will be using areas, transform the area to clean part, closed facility, no garbage intact, no waste to see, no emission, bio mass technology compare to Payatas,
will operate 500 up to 1500 facilities in the Philippines, cheap electricity, zero tax operation, 50 less than what we’re paying currently, will be producing 700 MW per day or 40 MG per hour, solid waste, 1200 tons per day = 700 MW, 4000 tons per day currently, still negotiating, talking to the hauler, landfill will be used by not just MMDA but also other towns in Rizal
enough waste to produce energy, from 4 towns to MMDA, solid waste will never stop, hindi mapupuno ang landfill, no waiting trucks waiting daily, scheduled, not involve in hauling, only in renewable energy, mayors have own contractors,
could produce plenty of local jobs, big group of people, Mayor Buenaventura, from dead town, not the Morong town now, what more with this kind of development, will be window of Asian biosphere, it could be a new city, prioritizing local fols for the job, part of the agreement and contract
MOA, 25 year contract, Morong will assist in establishment, give people to coordinate, provide security, local labor, Morong town will get the share of end product, revenue, role of provincial government, silent, never requires to be part of, quarreling on the revenue, feud, Governor Ynares, function of solid waste is a direct action of the Mayor, its the law, not provincial, no law to talk to provincial government, Mercado
20% of income to Morong, will get another machine after 25 years, not BOT, build and transfer, $84 million facility, investment recover trough carbon credit
Would Atty Ruth Briones, live next to biosphere facility? Yes! walang problema, zero waste, living near Payatas, familiar with the pollution, mabaho, trucks marching to San Guillermo?,
other end products: ash, distilled water, carbon block, organic fertilizer, green energy
Final words, biospeher process is a revolutionary facility in the Philippines, carbon negative, clean energy, it has zero taxation, for investors, has plans for the whole country, plan to make Philippines zero waste energy, Mayalsia, Korea, Indonesia, Spain, Argentina, in US, licensed in Nevada, California, Utah..
