CLARK FREEPORT— The Clark Development Corporation (CDC) through its Environmental Permits Division (EPD) is developing a one-hectare facility here into a ‘hybrid’ Eco park dedicated to install renewable energy projects in this Freeport.

CDC-EPD Manager Engr. 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 is divided into three phases.

Magat said that 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 Grey water harvesting (facility), and the lighting system will be LEDs,” he added.

Magat and his team are thankful to CDC President-CEO 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.
