The chairman of the group that is mining the coal deposit in Calatrava town denied reports that they will set up a coal-fired power plant at the mine site.

In fact, Marton Cui, chairman of the Calatrava Coal Multi-Purpose Cooperative told the Negros Daily Bulletin that they are not constructing any coal-fired plant.


AUTHORITIES ARE CALLING ON motorists, commuters and pedestrians to take extra precautions, as they expect road accident cases to rise again involving sugarcane trucks. Drivers of trucks hauling sugarcane are likewise reminded to avoid overloading, and to make sure their vehicles are in good condition and with adequate signal lights to avoid any untoward incidents on the road.* (Arman Toga photo)


THE SUGAR MILLING SEASON is peaking. More economic activities are again grinding in Negros Occidental which is still highly-dependent on the sugar industry. As farm workers do their toil to feed their family, industry and government leaders are trying to find ways to extract more from sugarcane especially with the challenges posed by the influx of cheap imported sugar starting next year.* (Arman Toga photo)

"The reports are not true," Cui said.

He, however, admitted that interested parties have contacted him after NDB reported on the availability of low grade coal mineral in the area.

Earlier, the newly organized Negros Electric Cooperatives Association (NECA) said it plans to look for potential investors to tap the coal deposits in Calatrava as answer to the impending power crisis facing the Philippines next year.

Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson also supported the move saying that "it will be up to the local government unit concerned to support it or not."

Cui said that new models of coal fired power plants can now process low grade coal.

With the impending power crisis facing the Philippines next year, stakeholders in the power sector are looking at local sources for power.

The move of the newly- organized Negros Electric Cooperatives Association (NECA) to look for potential investors to tap the coal deposits in Calatrava got a boost after Negros Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio Jose "Bong" Lacson bared his support for it.

Lacson told the Negros Daily Bulletin there is a need to tap sources for power to address the power crisis expected next year.

However, the vice governor said he "prefers renewable energy."

Lacson said that it will be up to the local government unit concerned to support it or not.

Earlier, Marton Cui, chairman of the Calatrava Coal Multi-Purpose Cooperative said that new models of coal fired power plants can now process low grade coal.

FIRE!

Some 124 families became homeless after a fire broke out at 11:45 yesterday morning and razed several houses in Purok Katilingban in Brgy. 39, Bacolod City.

The fire quickly spread because ma-jority of the houses were made of light materials and there were difficulties on the part of Bureau of Fire Protection firefighters as they cannot penetrate the area immediately.

No casualties were reported and initial estimate of damages was placed at P2 million.

The incident was covered live by DYAF Radyo Veritas Global Bacolod anchormen/re-porters Chito Berjit, Rommel Pido, Rey Alejandrino, Malou Flejoles and Leroy.* (Chito Berjit)

Martin Cui, chairman of Calatrava Coal Multi-Purpose Cooperative told NDB new boilers (in new coal-fired plants) can be fueled by low grade coal just like what is being mined in Calatrava.

"The old model (of boilers) requires high grade coal but new ones with high pressure boilers only require low grade. Existing coal-fired plants that are old require high grade coal. New models only require low grade in order to operate and produce power," Cui also said.
