Catbalogan City – The city government is negotiating with a European company for the building of a waste treatment facility, a report from the city mayor said.

Catbalogan Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan told reporters her office is in talks with Quantum International for a plasma-based treatment plant.

Tan said the facility will help solve the city’s worsening waste disposal problem and recycle the waste into a reusable product.

The company will use plasma gasification, an emerging technology that processes wastes through recycling and converting the carbon-based materials into fuels.

She said the plant can start commercial operation in 18 months.
