As part of the IEC campaign for technology promotion, the Technology Transfer and Packaging Unit of the Urban, Toxic Substances and Hazardous Wastes Research Center (TTPU-UTHRC) conducted a Forum on ENR Technologies on March 10, 2016 at the Cocoon Boutique Hotel, Quezon City.

A total of 43 representatives from the 13 cities in Metro Manila attended the occasion. Five (5) ENR technologies were presented on Charcoal Briquetting, Recycling, Composting, Nursery Establishment, Clonal Propagation Technique and Vertical Planting. Several considerations on technology adoption were discussed in the open forum. Queries include the technical aspects like maintenance in the establishment of a vertical planting within the LRT-MRT areas specifically on water consumption.

As part of the event, a mini-exhibit on ENR Technologies was displayed in the venue which featured the CBT process and the recommended plant species for urban greening.

The participants were given flyers on the different technologies presented. Finally, an interview schedule was undertaken on stakeholder’s analysis and training needs assessment. UTHRC
