DENR considers production of processed engineered fuel
by PNA release

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources is not discounting the possibility of eventually ending Philippine importation of waste-based processed engineered fuel (PEF), an alternative to fossil fuel used in cement production.

The agency is looking into possible production of PEF in the country so cement producers can buy this product from local sources instead of sourcing it abroad, DENR Usec. Benny Antiporda said.

“They won’t have to import PEF,” he said.

Reports cited Bureau of Customs as intercepting, in Misamis Oriental, shipment from Australia and declared as PEF consigned to Holcim Philippines Inc. for the company’s use in cement production.

DENR’s Environmental Management Bureau confirmed the shipment is PEF, as noted by the agency’s hazardous waste chief Gerry Sañez.

“PEF can be imported as it’s a tradable commodity and not mere waste for disposal,” he added.

Wood chips, textile, recyclable plastics, cardboard, and paper are among waste materials that can be used in making PEF, said Irvin Cadavona, EMB environmental management specialist.

He said when burned, PEF emits lesser carbon dioxide compared to fossil fuel.

“As far as I know, there’s no PEF processing plant in the country yet but it’s good to have this so the commodity can be produced locally,” he said.
