FILINVEST Development Corp. (FDC), through its subsidiaries Countrywide Water Services Inc. (CWSI), has rolled out its sustainable water technology at the Crimson Resort and Spa Mactan.

CWSI commissioned the resort’s new on-site sewage treatment plant to enhance its operations while at the same time adapting eco-friendly practices.

“CWSI has been meeting the water supply and wastewater system needs of various Filinvest subsidiaries for many years. This new partnership with Crimson Mactan further creates synergy within Filinvest, as we all pursue sustainable initiatives to improve our socio-economic impacts,” CWSI president and chief executive officer Juan Eugenio Roxas said in a statement.

Roxas said as businesses prepare to re-ignite the local tourism post-pandemic, CWSI remains at the forefront of improving the resort’s services.

Through their technical expertise in wastewater regeneration, he said the resort advances its green practices as it caters to the needs of conscious travelers while maximizing the use of available natural resources without sacrificing ecological balance.

The wastewater treatment facility can treat up to 300 cubic meters of domestic wastewater per day.

Making use of Membrane Bioreactor technology, which provides high-end water sanitation compared to traditional wastewater technology, the facility can guarantee better-quality effluent suitable for re-use in the resort’s six-hectare grounds to provide water for its landscaping and garden irrigation.

The implementation of this treatment facility aligns with Crimson Resort’s sustainability goals for responsible consumption and production and climate action.

“The sustainability program in the resorts, especially at Crimson Mactan, has always been at the core of our operation. With this new facility, the resort will be able to reduce water consumption by 170 cubic meters per day, further ensure cleaner water effluent and improve efficiency of recycling of wastewater for better environmental protection” Francis Gotianun, senior vice president of Filinvest Hospitality said.

Crimson Resort and Spa Mactan is a recipient of the Anahaw Philippine Sustainable Tourism Certificate by the Zero-Carbon Resorts and is an Association of Southeast Asian Nations’ Green Hotel for its programs that include wastewater treatment, environmental protection including the marine-reserve project and energy conservation projects among others.

CSWI, the implementer of the facility, is a subsidiary of FDC and will manage the facility for 20 years. (JOB with PR)
