Resource Recovery System
Integrated Resource Recovery System (IRRS) is a holistic approach in
managing the discards of waste generators. It is more than waste management.
It unifies the practices of treatment, recycling, and disposal, and
elevates it by converting once discarded materials, goods and energy
into useful and saleable materials and products. Moreover, this concept
also introduces new opportunities in entrepreneurship as it opens doors
for service industries to flourish.
IRRS involves a considerable amount of research. It involves assessing
present practices in order to determine how these practices may be improved
or added upon.
Industrial Ecology Module of the Prime Project is working towards the
implementation of an IRRS in the Philippines. This will attempt to address
the problematic waste management system in the Philippines. The project
shall primarily involve a study to establish the feasibility of the
facility. The study shall consider the components of the physical site
as well as action programs to be implemented.
