In an interview, he said that he has already contacted well-known companies that build recycling plants, he even traveled to Tulum to visit a similar place made by “Petgas” that recycles plastics into fuels and has the required certificates for its operation.

Berne Santiago commented that he visited the operation of this plant in Tulum and assured that in San Cristóbal this could be part of the solution to the problem of solid waste treatment and not only think about a garbage dump but generate fuel in this case.
