Czech Republic offers solutions in solid waste management

THE Czech Republic, through Ambassador Jana Šedivá, has committed to working closely with the Philippines in various areas, including finding solutions to the looming waste crisis in the latter.

This, as the Embassy of the Czech Republic conducted a pioneer conference on solid waste management: “Clean Philippines: Solutions to the Waste Pollution” last November 21 in Makati City, with WASTen z.s. as a partner.

WASTen z.s. is a solid waste-management association in the Czech Republic with 30 members composed of different universities, private companies, as well as research and development organizations. It aims to assist governments in European states in solving their waste crisis, while aiding economic growth in the continent.

In the event, members of WASTen z.s. introduced and discussed various Czech technologies and practices on solid waste management—particularly solutions for separating waste, converting waste to energy, and diverting plastic waste into concrete-like material. Presenters also tackled benefits of the innovations, and ways they can assist the Philippines in overcoming its issues with solid waste processing.

The afternoon saw a knowledge-exchange session among Czech presenters and their Filipino audience.

The gathering was the first among the series of conferences on solid waste management prepared in Manila by the embassy and WASTen z.s. The Czech delegation was expected to meet with counterparts in Davao City on November 23 and in Cebu City on November 25.
