DS LNG PROJECT
JGC is commited to help sustain the environment and in pursuing this commitment, JGC developed the Waste Management Plans standardization for all projects that aim to ensure all wastes generated from its activities during the construction phase and until the end of the Projects are effectively controlled, handled and responsibly disposed of in an environmentally sound manner to protect and safeguard the environment and neighboring properties and sensitive receptors, to reduce the risk of current and future liabilities, and to comply with JGC’s internal environmental management standards. The objectives of the Waste Management Plan include but are not limited to:
- All wastes will be properly collected, identified, segregated and contained, according to Project requirements
- Waste containers should be labelled, using assigned waste generator labels
- Work site waste should only be accumulated in the nearest assigned waste collection point
- Proper management and documentation of the transport and ultimate disposal or recycling of the waste, according to Project requirements
- Measure and record the amounts of waste sent off-site, in the prescribed manner
- Record the totals of each type of waste disposed of or recycled
DS LNG WASTE COMPOSTING PROGRAM
The uniqueness of the DS LNG Waste Management Program includes the composting of their food wastes or leftovers collected from kitchen and other areas where food is prepared and eaten. DS LNG believes that the preparation waste and left-over food is one of the major sources of wastes. The excess trimmings of meat and vegetables, cooked or uncooked leftovers, fruits, and all of the edible matter that is usually found in our kitchens comes in small or large quantities but, no matter what the volume is, these wastes are not worthless if we can still make use of them in away that can actually help our environment perform the cycle of life, and will be better for ourselves.
Because of this belief, the DS LNG Management, responding to a proposal from their Environmental Team, acquired two units of waste grinders with a capacity of 500KG each and operated them according to the volume of wastes generated from kitchen and pantries. The grinded wastes are mixed into soil and used as fertilizer for planting.

The fertilizer has been sent to the nearby communities to be used for their farming needs and some is used in the DS LNG Project for their greening efforts and making an environmentally sound area.
