Japanese conglomerate Sumitomo Corporation will build biggest waste recycling plant in the Philippines.

Sumitomo Director Kenzo Harada told Japan Today that the plant will be the biggest outside Japan and Asia, and will be the first in the Philippines.

Harada said the company has leased 62 hectares of land between Santa Rosa, Laguna, and the town of Silang Cavite.

The move is seen to ease Metro Manila’s garbage and waste problem in the next three years.

Harada said the plant is expected to recycle and segregate 120 tons of mixed garbage every day and turn into reusable materials like steel, plastics, copper, paper, and other materials, while biodegradable materials will be land-filled.

According to Philippine Daily Inquirer, Metro Manila produces 4th of the country’s total waste.

The $2.3 billion plant is also expected to produce 2,600 cubic meters of bio-gas everyday according to Harada.
