First Balfour recently signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc. (ALKFI) to support the latter’s Bantay Baterya and Bantay Langis projects.
Bantay Baterya aims to reprocess junk lead-acid batteries for recycling into fresh raw materials for the production of new batteries, while Bantay Langis endeavors to treat and recycle used industrial and engine oil. Both projects propose to create sustained public awareness on the health and environmental hazards posed by the improper disposal of junk batteries and used oil.
Under the agreement, First Balfour will donate its used batteries and oil and their equivalent monetary value to ALKFI for use in its environmental preservation projects. Its partner-treaters—Oriental & Motolite Marketing Corporation and Genetron International Marketing—also graced the MOA signing at the First Balfour corporate office in Sucat, Parañaque.
The agreement was signed by Bantay Kalikasan program director Norie Garcia and ALKFI chief marketing officer Susan Afan, First Balfour Plant and Equipment division manager Rodel Cariaga and pollution control officer Leslie Jacinto, Rita Regalado of Oriental & Motolite for Bantay Baterya and Jocelyn Panen of Genetron for Bantay Langis.
