The Consorcio Vega Baja Sostenible, which for the first time has had a presence at the International Fair of Environmental Solutions (Ecofira), in Valencia, has received on its stand the visit of the vice president of the Consell, Monica Oltra, during the tour that it has carried out by the exhibitors of the different companies in the waste sector, after the opening ceremony that took place next to Pavilion 5 in which the event is held. The president of the consortium, Manuel Pineda, has been in charge of receiving Oltra, who has committed himself to the head of the Vega Baja Sustainable Consortium to solve the problem of waste in the region. In this sense, Pineda himself recalled that is pending approval of the budget of the Generalitat, which includes that will be allocated around 800,000 for waste management of the Vega Baja, an investment that “puts the focus of the Valencian government in the resolution of the problem of our 27 municipalities, hence President Puig begins with the most immediate and most important, which is to put the money, “said the mayor of Rafal and regional deputy.
The president of the Consortium was accompanied by the mayors of Algorfa, Manuel Ros and the vice president of the entity and mayor of Dolores, José Joaquín Hernández Sáez. The representative of the Environment of Alicante, Javier Sendra, has also approached the exhibitor of the entity, who has taken advantage of his passage through the stand to talk about the future with the people in charge of the Consortium. The exhibitor of the consortium entity has also attended today the visit of several companies in the sector that have shown their interest to improve the efficiency in the management of recycling and the implementation of systems with which to quantify the waste produced by the municipalities of La Vega Baja . In this sense, the companies have also exchanged information regarding the operation of the future transfer and treatment plants that the Consortium intends to promote in the region.
Piquer: “Being at the fair allows us to make the problem visible”
The Director General of Climate Change and Environmental Quality, Joan Piquer, explained that “it is very important, and I would say that the fact that the Consortium is present in Ecofira is historic, not only because it helps improve its own image but also because it is a decisive step to make visible the serious problem that the region is dragging, something that will also allow us to advance in the solution of the integral management of waste in the Vega Baja “. In this sense Piquer has insisted on the need to “go all to one and unify wills to carry out both the transfer and treatment plants and start the ecoparks both mobile and fixed that the Vega Baja needs” .
