74th Infantry Battalion holds training on charcoal briquetting

Lucena City (7 December) -- The 74th Infantry Batallion of the Philippine Army (PA) taught 35 Mulanay residents in charcoal briquetting recently as an alternative source of livelihood to generate additional income for their everyday expenses.

Col. Dennis Perez, leader of the training staff, said the charcoal making they taught was different because it uses coconut husk, twigs, banana leaves, and other dried leaves in the charcoal briquetting, adding that the process does not need to cut trees thus the environment is protected.

The 74th IB also donated one unit charcoal briquetting machine for residents participated in the training to practice the procedures in the charcoal making.

The training is in line with the Mulanay municipal government's campaign in promoting solid waste management to improve the tourism industry in the area.

Mulanay Mayor Joselito Ojeda said the training program was a proof that the Army always on hand to help the people not only in the preservation of peace in the area but also in the development of the town. (PIA Calabarzon) [top]
