BCDA backs $250-M New Clark City waste-to-energy project

/ 02:14 AM March 31, 2023

MAKATI  -The top executive of state-run Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) voiced support for a $250-million waste-to-energy project near the New Clark City in Tarlac.

The unsolicited proposal was earlier made by Metro Clark Waste Management Corp., which operates the 100-hectare landfill in Clark, Pampanga.

During the company’s recent 20th anniversary celebration, BCDA CEO Aileen Zosa described the their proposal as the “best fit” for New Clark City.


“We want to make New Clark City a livable, walkable, sustainable and efficient community. We want to ensure that our garbage are efficiently collected and disposed,” Zosa said in a statement on Thursday.


The proposed power project is designed to reduce waste at the landfill by up to 70 percent.

The unsolicited offer had been submitted in 2019 but approvals were delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Metro Clark Waste Management earlier partnered with Plambeck-Emirates, a venture between a Plambeck Germany, a publicly listed firm with extensive experience in renewable energy projects and the Royal Family of Abu Dhabi.

“We would like to see more of Metro Clark’s projects take off because this would mean more green investments pouring into our country. Apart from creating jobs, we are also looking at lengthening the lifespan of sanitary landfills and improving our environmental outlook,” a speech that was attributed to Environment Secretary Antonia Yulo-Loyzaga showed.

Loyzaga also recognized Metro Clark Waste Management for its “pioneering waste management system in the Philippines.”

The company’s sanitary landfill is the only facility in Southeast Asia that is internationally certified in environment management system, occupational health and safety and quality management system, she added.
