Bio-ethanol Plant Sparks Sustainable City Project


In one of my trips to the Visayas, I visited the country’s first commercial scale bio-ethanol facility in San Carlos City, located in the province famous for being the sugarland capital of the Philippines.  The tour inside the plant opened up my eyes to another renewable energy idea. Despite the commercial and policy challenges this project has faced, what remains clear is that the path to sustainability is possible.

San Carlos City in The Philippines initiated the Sustainable City Project to balance economic growth and environmental protection, and to focus equally on rural and urban development. The program won a Galing Pook Foundation Award in 2008. Galing Pook is a sister program of the Ash Center’s Innovation in American Government Awards Program
