Our Company, Voice Development Corporation, is considering Malalag, Davao del Sur as the site for an "Integrated Coconut-based Food and Beverage Processing Plant."
As planned, the Tampakan mining project considers Malalag as the site of the power plant to supply energy to the SMI project and also a shipping point.
We have limited knowledge of the extent an/or progress of the SMI project. It is essential for us to know if there are prohibitions in establishing a food processing plant in the vicinity of the SMI project.
Specifically, is Malalag outside of the "Danger Zone" so to speak?
We look forward to an immediate and enlightening response.

Bifenthrin is non-polar and has a strong affinity for soil particles organic matter as represented by its high organic carbon (OC)-water adsorption partition coefficient. The strong sorption to soils and the low solubility would seem to confine these compounds to areas of use. However, they are able to move with runoff into surface streams by moving with suspended sediments a dissolved organic matter.

As of now, there is no schedule for PCO Orientation seminar but we can inform you once there will be a scheduled seminar. Good Day.

For more details pls, call Engr. Degrano at (02) 233-0809. Gobless
I am Friche Rabaya, a Laboratory Technician (JOC) from FDA-Satellite Laboratory for Mindanao, Tagum City.
FDA-SLM would like to seek help from your agency as we wanted to register as Hazardous Wastes Generator. The facility generates chemical wastes from physico-chemical and microbiological analyses of various products ranging from food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical products.
We have read from your Citizen's charter the essential steps for us to be registered as HW Generator. However, there are some requirements that are not familiar to us such as the ECC (which do not have a category for laboratory, as per Citizen's charter posted), the IEE and EIS, among others.
We do have a trained Pollution Control Officer
We would highly appreciate if you could help us regarding this matter.
Friche Jay R. Rabaya

Citizens Charter can be located under EMB-Home Menu and at the lower part of the Transparency Seal. Check this link http://www.emb.gov.ph/portal/r11/EMB-Home/CitizensCharter.aspx.

Pls. be advised that WQMA meeting will be this April 19, 2013, at Grand Regal Hotel, also our invitation letter for your end was received by ms. May Capili last April 15, 2013.
We at Mindanao Land Foundaiton just want to ask when will be the next WQMA meeting and venue this April 2013.
Thank you very much.
Here in Region XI, we have no registered treater/recycler to handle the disposal of waste containing mercury such as lamp waste and used thermometer.
For additional information, you may browse from our website www.emb.gov.ph/portal/r11 under Services menu, the list of accredited Hazardous Wastes Treatment, Storage and Disposal (TSD) Facilities on waste containing mercury.
Do you have contact agency or agency who handles disposal of mercury?
Yes, We have air quality assessment ( Annual ) to determine the status of air quality for Davao City.
I would just like to ask if your good office has a study on the air quality status of our city or if there is any study regarding the effects of motorized vehicles in the air quality of our city. Thank you very much...
Anent the questions on Fluorescent Lamp Wastes containing Mercury
(1.) Determination on the annual quantity of disposed CFLs in the country.
As of C.Y 2011, there are 17,312 pieces of lamp wastes reported from the registered hazardous waste generators within Region XI. No data available in other regions. For C.Y 2012 there are 14,478 pieces of lamp wastes reported and recorded.
(2.) There is no registered treater/ recycler of lamp waste containing Mercury in Region XI.
To address the particular concern, you may browse our website www.emb.gov.ph "A Guidebook on the Management of Mercury-Containing Lamp Wastes"
We thank you for your concern and support to protect the environment.
Compact flourescent lamps are promoted by DOE as an efficient lighting system. Yet these lamps contain mercury- a chemical hazardous to humans and the environment. Hence, must be safely managed at the end of their useful lives. Do we have the latest data on the annual quantity of disposed CFLs in the country? Do we have a recycling facility to salvage mercury from CFLs in region XI? or a regulation to institute a "take-back" program of CFLs by manufacturers? Hope that your office can come up with policy/circular to address mercury contamination on CFLs. Many people are not aware about the potential hazard of Mercury in CFLs.
The PENRO-LGU of Davao del Sur would like to request your good office IEC materials (English or Filipino version) for solid waste management. These materials will be distributed to our clients during our trainings/seminars. If available, we can just drop by your office for pick up.
Looking forward to your favorable action. Thank you.
