On 2 June 2017, FDR Integrated Resource Recovery Management Inc. (FDR-IRRMI), a company based in Cebu, inaugurated the Philippines’ first hybrid Dry Anaerobic Digesting (DAD) Biogas Plant in Naga City, Cebu. The DAD Biogas Plant will produce electricity and heat by fermenting pre-sorted organic waste from domestic garbage which are being collected from the Cities of Naga, Carcar and the Municipality of Minglanilla in Cebu Province. The Plant has a capacity to treat up to 130 tons of organic wastes per day and produces 650 kilowatt/hour of electric power for the Plant’s own-use and may soon deliver to grid upon expansion.

The waste-to-energy facility was designed and constructed by the Austrian company, IUT GmbH. IuT GmbH is a waste management specialist with more than 25 years of experience in waste sorting and treatment technology as well as in landfill remediation. It was funded by the Development Bank of the Philippines and was awarded a Sustainable Merit Award for Environment Category by the Association of Development Financing Institutions in Asia and Pacific (ADFIAP). The DAD Biogas Facility is the latest addition to the resource recovery operations in Naga City, Cebu that already has a material sorting facility, alternative fuel facility from residual waste for use by a cement plant, and composting facility for the use of “Sergio’s Farm”, which produces organic vegetables and Cebu’s strawberries.
