In a significant step towards improving waste management practices in Metro Manila, the City of Manila, in collaboration with the Department of Public Services, played host to EMSUS Co. Ltd. and the Korean Environment Industry and Technology Institute (KEITI) earlier today. This visit is part of the Pre-Feasibility Study for Waste Management Facilities in the region, carried out in partnership with the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and CEST Inc.

The representatives from EMSUS Co. Ltd. and KEITI, renowned experts in environmental solutions, visited various waste management facilities in the city to gather valuable insights and assess the current practices. Their itinerary included visits to the City Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs), Barangay Materials Recovery System (MRS), and the Aling Tindera program, a waste-to-cash initiative that empowers local communities.

The primary objectives of this comprehensive study are as follows: first, to assess the materials resource recovery practices implemented across Metro Manila, aiming to identify areas of improvement and innovation. Second, to provide recommendations for enhancing the adaptability, resilience, and sustainability of the existing MRF operations. This step is crucial in ensuring that waste management systems align with global environmental standards and best practices.


Furthermore, the study aims to conduct a pre-feasibility assessment for the development of a demonstration MRF, serving as a model facility that showcases advanced waste management technologies and processes. The establishment of such a facility can serve as a learning platform for other areas in the region, enabling the replication of successful waste management strategies.

In addition to facility assessments, the study also seeks to develop a comprehensive capacity support plan for the effective and sustainable operations of MRFs. By identifying the key areas where capacity-building interventions are required, the plan will pave the way for strengthening the capabilities of waste management personnel and promoting knowledge-sharing among stakeholders.

The City of Manila, led by its dedicated Department of Public Services, remains committed to finding innovative solutions for waste management challenges in Metro Manila. Collaborative efforts with esteemed partners such as EMSUS Co. Ltd., KEITI, MMDA, and CEST Inc. are instrumental in achieving this goal.

The Pre-Feasibility Study for Waste Management Facilities in Metro Manila demonstrates the city's proactive approach to environmental sustainability and underscores its commitment to addressing waste management issues. By embracing cutting-edge technologies and implementing sustainable practices, the city aims to create a cleaner and greener environment for its residents.


The visit of EMSUS Co. Ltd. and KEITI marks a significant milestone in this ongoing study. Their expertise and experience in environmental solutions will greatly contribute to the development of effective waste management strategies that can be replicated and scaled across the region.

As the study progresses, the City of Manila, along with its partners, remains dedicated to building a robust and sustainable waste management system that promotes environmental stewardship and supports the overall well-being of its residents.
