Philippines and Cyclion’s $3 million waste-energy plant set for Q4 launch

By Eileen Mencias

The Philippines is taking a step towards cleaner energy and better waste management with a new project in Manila.

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) announced that the $3 million waste-to-energy plant project with Australian startup Cyclion Pty Ltd. is targeted to start operations by the end of the year.

This state-of-the-art facility will use Cyclion’s innovative technology to convert biowaste into clean-burning fuel. This will not only improve waste management but also contribute to the country’s goal of sustainable energy production.

Cyclion and NDC aim to establish a network of recycling facilities across the Philippines. Their first plant, with a capacity of 50 tons per day, is expected to be operational by the end of the year. They are also in discussions for a much larger facility with a capacity of 900 tons per day, planned for construction in 2025.

One of the key advantages of Cyclion’s technology is its versatility. Its “Cyclion Catalytic Fluid” method can handle mixed waste, including plastics and organic materials, without any pre-treatment. This liquefies the waste and converts it into usable fuel or electricity.

Both the NDC and Cyclion are excited about this partnership. NDC sees it as a way to improve waste management and achieve energy security, while Cyclion is excited to contribute to the Philippines’ sustainable future with their innovative solutions.
