Waste Water Compliance Training 2018

(January 15 - 18, 2018)

 

On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), the German-Philippine Chamber facilitated a Capacity Building Training on Waste Water Management Technology and Water Efficiency Measures to support compliance of the industry with the new DENR Administrative Order 2016-08 on water quality guidelines and general effluent standards.

In cooperation with the Philippine Chamber of Commerce (PCCI) and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), trainings in Taguig and Tagaytay were executed, in January 2018, which gathered 80 company representatives from various industries.

It is not just the lack of financial resources but the technological knowledge that challenges SMEs to apply the new regulations to their business practices. Often, high investments are not needed to increase the waste water quality. Therefore, the compliance training provides SMEs with possible water efficiency approaches and technology solutions based on German technology to increase their competitiveness as well as to improve their sustainability in the market.

The Training

Torsten Lingner, project manager at Sachsen Wasser GmbH, Germany presented important information regarding the new regulations of the DENR AO 2016-08 to Philippine SMEs as well as discussed efficient wastewater treatment techniques for application and implementation of the Compliance Action Plan (CAP) with the support of DENR and PCCI during a two day training in Taguig and Tagaytay.

Topics:

• Basics of wastewater management and technologies

• Standalone wastewater treatment solutions (high-tech)

• Cleaner production approaches for SMEs

• Guidelines for the Compliance Action Plan
