A GLOBAL consultancy firm contracted to do a feasibility study on the proposed waste-to-energy (WTE) facility at the Inayawan landfill is set to start the groundwork early next month. Cebu City Environment and Natural Resources Office head Nida C. Cabrera said Mott MacDonald, an engineering, management and development consultancy with headquarters in the United Kingdom, will probably start the work on the first week of January 2018. Ms. Cabrera said a study is needed to see if the facility would be effective. The company has been tapped to assess the current situation at the landfill, as well as review the economic, legal, technical, social, and environmental parameters of the planned WTE project. It would also examine how the power generated by the waste incinerator could be sold to the local power distributor. Ms. Cabrera said the pre-feasibility study would take at least three months and another six months for the final study. — The Freeman
