Sector: Clean Technologies

On March 25 and 26, 2019, the Embassy of Canada in the Philippines will host a business symposium on waste management highlighting technological, social, and circular economy solutions. This event will target the key decision makers (mayors and city managers) of 20-25 local government units (LGUs) and provide an opportunity for them to share their challenges and meet Canadian companies, experts, and social enterprises providing solutions in waste management, waste-to-energy, polymer conversion, recycling, upcycling etc. 

Household waste is a key challenge for municipalities in the Philippines with opportunities for Canadian solutions providers. For example, the 13.7 million people in the National Capital Region of the Philippines alone generate approximately 3500 tonnes of household waste daily and are served by only three sanitary landfills.
