After the facility was completed, Attila Bodnár, EVP and Co-Founder of Organica, attended the ceremonial opening of the facility along with the Governor of Laguna Province, Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Santa Rosa City, and various other executives from Ayala Group, Manila Water, and the Philippine national government.
”The Laguna facility highlights the economic benefits of ”localized” approach Organica employes. By treating the water in a beatiful garden we drive lower infrastructure costs, increased land value, and enable cost efficient of the treated water.” Bodnar commented. ”We are pleased to have done this project for Manila Water and look forward to more projects in the future together as we bring our special brand of environment friendly, sustainable, wastewater treatment solutions to SE Asia.”
As the water industry came together to celebrate World Toilet Day on November 19, 2018, Laguna Water joined in the movement of water sustainability by inviting households and industrial parks to join in its desludging or used water siphoning service, as a means to ensure the continued protection of the environment.
According to the World Health Organization, 4.5-billion people worldwide do not have access to safe or well managed sanitation and wastewater services, where toilets are not connected to a sewer or a septic tank. This means that wastes are not treated properly, causing contamination of groundwater and other natural bodies of water.
For the Philippines, there’s an influx of improper disposal of untreated used water that has been identified as one of the leading causes of pollution of Laguna Lake. This contamination poses huge health threats to the community. With the use of Organica Water’s FCR technology, wastewater management and reuse has become safer for Laguna Lake and the residents that inhabit there.
