P&G Partners With ADB To Help Turn Waste Into Electricity In The Philippines

August 31, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble Co. partnered with the Asian Development Bank to assess the feasibility of building power plants that will generate up to 2MW of electricity using solid waste collected from homes and businesses in the Philippines. According to estimates, about 6,700 tons of solid waste is generated daily in Metro Manila alone, with only 720 tons being recycled or composted. The rest is disposed of in dump sites, burned in open-air locations, or dumped illegally, leading to serious environmental problems. The project is expected to do away with landfills, leaving less than 1 percent of waste after processing.
