Ano na kaya nangyari sa Korean firm na ito na gustong tumulong sa Pilipinas sa pamamagitan ng pagdala ng teknolohiya rito sa bansa kung saan kayang gawing pataba or organic fertilizer ang basura.Ang Korean company na ito ay ang Daepoong Fertilizer Co. Ltd at ang itatayo nilang kumpanya rito ay ang DP Pure Environment Inc.
Sa teknolohiyang dala ng kumpanyang ito, halos 50% ng basura ay kayang ma-convert na fertilizer samantala ang natitirang kalahati ay i-bi-breakdown sa kani-kanilang basic components para hindi makasama sa kapaligiran. Kung magiging matagumpay ang proyektong ito, magkakaroon na ng pasilidad na kayang gawing kapakipanginabang ang mga basura kesa itambak na lamang ito sa mga landfill na nakakadagdag ng polusyon sa kapaligiran.
Bukod pa roon, ang mga bayan na gagamit ng teknolohiyang ito ay magkakaroon din ng karagdagang pagkakakitaan o ABANEGO (Ang Barangay Negosyo) sa pamamagitan ng organic fertizer na kanilang magagawa. Ang susunod ay ang orihinal na artikulo na galing sa Philippine Star.
MANILA, Philippines – DP Pure Environment Inc., the local subsidiary of Daepoong Fertilizer Co., Ltd of the Daepoong Industries Korean conglomerate, is offering its technology to treat waste and turn it into organic fertilizer.
DP Pure Environment aims to begin operations before the end of 2010. CEO J.M. Lee said “every kind of waste produced, even glass with its hexagonal molecular structure, can be broken down into organic fertilizer.”
After exhaustive research and testing in Korea for the past 20 years, Lee opted to bring the technology to the Philippines. “The obvious choice for many people would have been China, due to its proximity and large population,” he admitted, “but I wanted to come to the Philippines because the investment climate and general atmosphere is quite appealing to the group.”
The process of converting trash into fertilizer has numerous benefits, as opposed to pre-existing methods of waste management. The largest advantage of DP Pure Environment’s approach is treat the trash, compress it and then convert it into fertilizer. Fifty percent of the actual waste matter is fermented into fertilizer while the remaining half is completely broken down during the process. This eliminates the need for waste water discharge, and the danger of contaminating the surrounding area.
Moreover, unlike in traditional land-fill trash disposal units, the unlimited supply of waste is considered an advantage. Using this technology, the more trash is produced and treated, the greater the output of fertilizer, thus increasing sellable yield.
On the effectiveness of the finished product, Lee said: “Our fertilizer has been extensively tested on farmland and staple crops such as rice and the results have been nothing but positive. Fertility of tested crops increased as much as three percent.” It is also chemical-free and safe to handle, unlike many existing fertilizers currently on the market.
DP Pure Environment Inc. is going through all the necessary processes in order to do business in the Philippines, taking every precaution that their documentation and accreditation is accurate and legal. “We’re going through everything with a fine-toothed comb because there are plans to put up multiple sites across the country,” said Lee. “We plan to be in the country for a very long time, and it’s only fitting to do things properly.”
