I guess one can really gain a lot of insight when studying the many different available technologies available for waste treatment, be it in the solid, waste or gas form. There are of course efforts towards waste management especially where solid waste is concerned and the regulations and laws are existing but as to its implementation, that still remains a question.
With the Philippines having so many problems, I guess environmental conservation is not really on the top list with the current administration. If I was not mistaken, it was stated last on the list in President Noynoy's platform of government and well, it was not very impressive for me. Of course, I could be mistaken as I am not currently living in my country.
I commend though the efforts of the many environmentally-concerned groups and organizations who are working hard to educate and implement the different waste programs decentrally. If only more effort and the national government would also make it a priority, they would be surprised at how much they can gain back from waste and in the process, help to ensure environmental sustainability. There is still a long way to go.... but it is doable.
Well, it's just me, seriously thinking....
