Economic Benefits

The economic benefits of the eco-KALAN include:

  • Jobs in the production, transportation and marketing of the eco-KALAN.
  • Jobs in the conversion to fuel of coconut industry waste by-products.
  • Jobs in the development of tree farming operations for sustainable supply of firewood and for offsetting carbon emissions from the use of the eco-KALAN.*
  • More profitable restaurants, eateries, and roadside or home food businesses as energy costs drop with the use of eco-KALAN.
  • Incremental revenues from waste by-products of coconut-based industries such as fresh coconut and copra production and virgin coconut oil extraction.
  • Investment dollars flowing into the Province of Negros Oriental and other regions in the Philippines.
  • Increased tourism in the country.
  • Most cost effective, environmentally friendly stove for developing countries.

*The eco-KALAN Project, in cooperation with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Negros Oriental Division of the Department of Education, and 302nd Infantry (Achiever) Brigade of the Philippine Army, has established the Sustainable Tree Farming for Firewood (STFF) Program in northern Sta. Catalina, Negros Oriental

“to ensure environmental sustainability” (Goal 7, United Nations (UN) Millennium Development).

The eco-KALAN Project, when applied on a national and international scale, has the potential to mitigate the harmful effects of climate change.

The eco-KALAN and its ensuing economic benefits are also well aligned with the

UN Millennium Goal 1 - “to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger”. The eco-KALAN Project also applies Principle 1 of the UN Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, June 3-14, 1992, which states: “Human beings are at the centre of concerns for sustainable development. They are entitled to a healthy and productive life in harmony with nature.”
