‘Hybrid’ eco-park to rise in Clark

THE Clark Development Corporation (CDC) through its Environmental Permits Division (EPD) is developing a one-hectare facility in Clark Freeport into a hybrid eco-park dedicated to installing renewable energy projects.

CDC-EPD Manager Engineer Rogelio Magat said this during an interview on CDC’s radio-television program Clark in Action aired over 105.5 UFM and broadcast live via air cable of Converge ICT.

According to Magat, the eco-park is a three-year program targeted to be completed by 2023 and divided into three phases.

Magat said included in the phase one development of the project is a tree nursery to house all endemic and native species of trees and the construction of EPD’s satellite office.

Also included in the project are the composting facility for Clark’s green wastes, vertical gardens and GreenHouse facility equipped with an automated irrigation system.

Magat also mentioned that locators or anyone interested in planting different kinds of plant species in a confined space may adopt the idea of the eco-park.

“The facility will have solar panels so that its power will be run by renewable energy. There will also be Greywater harvesting (facility), and the lighting system will be LEDs (light-emitting diodes),” he added.

Magat and his team are thankful to CDC President-Chief Executive Officer Manuel R. Gaerlan for supporting their initiative on the said project.

“The funding of the Eco park is from the current administration with so much support from President Gaerlan,” he said.

The state-owned firm looks forward to the completion of the eco-park project that will soon be open to the public. (PR)
