CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Over 2,000 million people in the world live without access to a basic drinking water service, and 3,6 billionhave no access to a basic sanitation service, resulting in avoidable deaths, chronic disease, fewer hours of education and low productivity.
ACCIONA has positioned itself as a key player in the water treatment sector. Its innovative management seeks to resolve the challenges with respect to the shortage of water resources.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The generation and use of energy accounts for 35 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in the world. This activity is the largest contributor to global warming. Investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency and other low-carbon technologies will continue to be essential to meet the emerging needs of humanity and to minimize their negative impact on the environment.
ACCIONA considers the fight against climate change and its effects to be a strategic priority. The company works to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in order to contribute to the progress of society and respond to the main challenges of sustainable development in the areas of infrastructure, water and energy, leading the transition to a low-carbon economy.
ACCIONA will increase its presence in the Philippines with the construction, operation and maintenance for 12 months of the Laguna Lake water treatment plant. It will serve an area that includes 6 million people with a capacity of 150,000 m3 per day each.
Laguna Lake DWTP will help to solve the problem of poor water quality in the area, applying an advanced treatment process of sludges and algae, among other features.
The project will be built in two phases, reaching a final treatment capacity of 150,000 m3 per day. The Laguna Lake Consortium will also undertake the operation and maintenance of the plant for 12 months.
Furthermore, as the site where the plant will be located is a floodable area, it will be necessary to do some filling and raising of the land level (5.5 meters).
The plot where the plant will be located is around two kilometers away from where ACCIONA carried out the Putatan II project.
