A GREEN Coal Plant, a type of facility used to process bana grass to produce “green coal,” will soon rise in the province of Bataan.
Bana grass is a type of plant that grows quickly and is easy to plant, making it an alternative to traditional coal.
By using bana grass, pollution and poisoning of the environment will be reduced as it does not require large commercial lands and does not require chemical nutrients. Instead, bana grass is said to meet energy needs by creating “green coal” that is safer and has lower carbon emissions.
Just recently, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between the province of Bataan, and Mackay Negros Bana Charcoal Corporation uses bana grass in the production of “green coal.”
Governor Jose Enrique “Joet” Garcia III signed the MOU on behalf of the province, together with the Mackay Negros Bana Charcoal Corporation, represented by its Chairman James Ronaldson Mackay.
Garcia stated that this agreement aligns with the provincial government’s promotion of green energy, and the corporation will be a partner of the provincial government. He said the partnership will provide a source of clean and safe energy for the health of everyone, as well as for nature and the environment.
Experts have studied the use of bana grass and have determined that it is an effective alternative to traditional coal, with lower environmental impact and fewer negative effects on public health.
