EVERY one of us has a “special gift” from God. Creativity or inventiveness is the most unique since it opened the door for us into the world where we are now, a high-tech civilization.
Through inventive minds, in terms of science and technology, nothing is impossible now. Inventors in our modern time are capable to produce what we labelled a hundred years before as “not viable” equipment.
With God, nothing is impossible. And as God’s creations, we human beings can co-create things which our Heavenly Maker intends for us to use in our daily living, for as long as those inventions will not harm His other important creation, the earth and its environment. Instead the inventors’ inven-tions must preserve all the things that He Made for our comfortable existence in this world.
Godly Filipino inventors co-create things that can safeguard our environment. One of them is inventor Mr. Manuel M. Malonzo, former Filipino In-ventors Society, Incorporated (FIS, Inc.) national Board of Directors.
Isa siya sa mga “gifted” Filipino na nakilala ko. He is a multi-awarded inventor. In 2011 he won the National Intellectual Property Award during the 37th Philippine Business Conference and Expo held at the Manila Hotel.
He has been very active as FIS, Inc. Public Relation Officer until na-stroke in 2015. Since then he spent more time at home and in his place of work devoting his time in transforming his ideas to reality. As of now, he has 25 patented inventions including his latest project titled High Pressure High Temperature Hospital Waste Equipment which the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) accredited in January 2018.
“Unique ang invention kong ito. Wala pa nito kahit sa U.S. Malaking tulong ito sa mga hospital natin dito sa Filipinas at maging sa iba’t ibang bansa,” ayon kay Inv. Malonzo.
Paliwanag pa niya, ang mga hospital daw particularly sa Metro Manila ay mayroong waste materials na around 1,000 to 2,000 kilos daily.
“Sa pagpapatapon ng mga basurang ganito sa garbage collectors, ang nagagastos po ng hospital ay P45,000 a day sa 1,000 kilos at P90,000 a day sa 2,000 kilos.”
“Ang problema nito, kung saan-saang dumpsites ng mga basura lang sa kapaligiran ng Metro Manila itinatapon ng mga garbage collector ang mga hospital waste na hinahakot nila mula sa mga pagamutan.”
Pagdidiin pa niya, “environmental hazard ang mga hospital waste materials at magdadala ng mga sakit sa mga taong makakalanghap ng hanging mu-la rito dahil nagtataglay ang mga basurang ito mula sa mga pagamutan ng mga harmful bacteria.”
Ang High Pressure High Temperature (HP HT) Hospital Waste Equipment ay maituturing na isang sanitation technology dahil puwedeng i-recycle ang ilang hospital waste materials na dumaan sa invention niyang ito.
Ang concept ng hospital waste sanitation technology ay galing sa invention din ni Inv. Manny Malonzo na HP HT Cremation Equipment for pets and cadaver. Which means ang patay na hayop or bangkay ng tao ay susunugin (iki-cremate) sa pamamagitan ng “high pressure, high temperature” sa loob ng naturang equipment.
BACKGROUND AND SIGNIFICANCE OF HP HT EQUIPMENT
The HP HT equipment is intended for hospital and pharmaceutical waste management. It can also be used on paint, plastic and rubber factories; res-taurant and fast food chains; dumpsites; pets and human crematorium. It does not use electricity and no exhaust mechanism. It has no chemical, no burn-ing/fire, and no air emission or atmosphere contamination.
Concerning HP HT Cremation Equipment for pets and cadaver it uses water for liquefaction procedure or dissolution of bone powder. Eighty (80) li-ters of diesel in 3 hours heating time is all it needs to complete the process of cremation.
As to restaurant or fast food chains and factories: garbage like rubbers; paints and synthetics or plastics; HP HT equipement also uses water for liq-uefaction or dissolution of waste materials.
It extracts oil and hydrosol which could be converted into valuable products. This process consumes only three (3) kilograms amount of LPG in 1½ hour heating time.
HP HT equipment uses LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) and diesel for heating purposes only placed at its bottom, not for direct incineration or crema-tion with what is inside the apparatus.
The cylinder type HP HT equipment conforms to no-burn or a non-combustion technology. It reduced- to-ashes, dissolved and liquefied waste ma-terials by means of extreme heat generated by LPG or diesel to be recycled as useable commodities.
“Mayroon nang unit ng HP HT Cremation Equipment ang Loyola Memorial Chapel,” dagdag na impormasyon ni Inv. Manny.
Regarding HP HT Hospital Waste Equipment he said, a temperature of 400 degrees Celsius and 400 psi pressure are needed to incinerate completely and liquefy the hospital wastes.
“Ang isang unit ng HP HT Hospital Waste Equipment ay puwedeng mag-incinerate at mag-liquefy ng 2,000 kilos ng hospital wastes per day,” ayon pa kay Inv. Manny.
He reiterated that HP HT can also be used as incinerator of waste materials from dumpsites or direct from the waterways or rivers in Metro Manila clogging with all kinds of garbage: plastics, canisters, dead animals, waste papers and cardboard boxes, etc.
“Malaking tulong din ang HP HT equipment sa pagtanggal ng tambak na mga basura sa kanal sa Metro Manila na nagiging sanhi ng pagbaha tuwing tag-ulan.”
“Magkano ang isang unit ng HP HT Hospital Waste Equipment na puwede ring gamitin sa pag-incinerate ng mga nagkalat na basura sa Metro Ma-nila,” tanong namin.
“Ang isang unit ng HP HT Hospital Waste Equipment na capable mag-incinerate ng 2,000 kilos per day mula sa mga pagamutan or from dumpsites ay nagkakahalaga ng P1.5 million,” ayon sa kanya.
For marketing purposes of his 25 patented inventions including herbal medicines, Inv. Manny established his own company in 2008, Malonzo Skills Enterprises (MSE). Its Vision-Mission: Create jobs for Filipinos; Mitigate environmental pollutants. Butch Roldan
