EMB XII leads review of SMWTF EIS

ALABEL, Sarangani (January 21, 2021) – Engr. Omar Saikol, Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) XII regional director, leads the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) review of the Sarangani Medical Waste Treatment Facility (SMWTF) on January 20 at the Kasfala Hall. During the event, Saikol commended the efforts of Congressman Rogelio Pacquiao, Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon, Vice Governor Elmer De Peralta, and the rest of the board members for the “extra push” in establishing the SMWTF. The said facility will treat infectious wastes from all the province-run hospitals in Sarangani. In Region 12, Sarangani is the second province to have the said machinery which is a waste processor that uses pyrolysis or the process of decomposing medical waste materials using extreme heat without having direct contact with the waste materials.
