ABB is working with First Quezon Biogas Corporation, through its partner Yamato Technologies Pte Ltd. from Singapore, to power the country’s first commercial biogas facility. Currently being constructed in the province of Candelaria in Quezon, the plant will transform chicken manure, rice straws, and other agricultural waste into useable energy that can augment the load requirements of the Luzon grid.
Albert Alquiros, president of the First Quezon Biogas Corporation, sees the $9.7 million biogas plant as a means to help the town of Candelaria realize its zero waste objective, as it will require some 20 tons of agricultural waste annually to maintain its operations.

Indoor air pollution caused by cooking fumes alone is behind the recent ranking of the Philippines by the World Health Organization (WHO) as second in the Asia-Pacific with the most number of household sickness linked to poor quality of indoor air.
