Petron collects 500 MT debris from Guimaras

September 20, 2006

PETRON Corp., the country’s largest oil refinery, said Wednesday that it has shipped out some 500 metric tons (MT) of oil-covered debris as part of its clean-up operations in Guimaras.

In a press statement, Petron said a Landing Craft Tanker (LCT) with a capacity of 2,000 metric tons left the Cabalagnan Wharf in Nueva Valencia after lunch on Wednesday.

The LCT will bring the debris to Holcim Philippines ’ Lugait plant in Misamis Oriental where it will be used as an alternative fuel and raw material in cement production without compromising the quality of cement.

The oil firm noted that the high technology plant will convert the oil-covered debris into energy without producing any hazardous compounds or fumes.

Petron said Holcim has had experience in handling, storing and co-processing of similar materials locally and globally.
