Bishop Alminaza

The San Carlos Diocese called on the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and other government monitoring bodies to strictly monitor the proposed barging out of waste water by the San Carlos Bio- Energy Industry (SCBI),according to Msgr. Gerardo Alminaza, bishop of the San Carlos Diocese.

"We are not opposing the barging out of waste water as long as it strictly complies with international protocols," Alminaza said.

"It is morally permissible," the bishop said adding that "the problem here is the issue of monitoring."

Alminaza said there concern is the DENR and other government agencies tasked to monitor the move to strictly do enforce the required conditions, " to really do their part."
