El Salvador: New Composting Plant
This plant is the first of 42 that are planned to be constructed as part of the National Integrated Solid Waste Management Program.
Tuesday, July 27, 2010
The signing of an agreement between four councils in south eastern El Salvador, the Ministry for the Environment and Natural Resources (MARN) and the Social Investment Fund for Regional Development (FISDL) is the beginning of the process to allocate funds for the studies and designs necessary to develop the composting and recycling facility.
The four plants will receive solid waste from nine municipalities that produce about 8.5 tons per day.
The signing of the Partnership for the Development of Recovered Waste will allow waste materials to become valuable and to be recycled wherever possible.
The recycling industry grows in the region as a way to save costs, create jobs and protect the environment.
Germany offered the loan at a favorable interest rate, in order to create and build landfills and recycling centers.
