Build, Construct, and Develop
While Protecting and Sustaining Nature

We see clear waters, verdant forests and fresh air as our gifts to our children for the greater Glory of God Almighty. Ecosystem Technologies was founded to make this future a reality.

The Breakthrough

Unleashing the Property Development Sector

Leveraging on its more than 20 years of experience with technology development and its extensive inventory of proprietary technologies and over 18 patents, Ecosystem pioneered the Sequence Bio Reactor (SBR) and Sequence Bio-Membrane Reactor (SBMR) technologies, among others, allowing biological recovery of multiple sources of contaminated water for potable and non-potable uses.

1971

National Waterworks and Sewage Authority (NAWASA) was transformed into the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewage System.

Population count: 36,332,192

1973

Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA) created to support semi-autonomous water districts in the provices.

Population count: 38,480,264

1995

Ecosystem Technologies founded by inventor Robert Y. So, who initially introduced the Sequencing Batch Reactor to the Philippines.

Population count: 69,835,715

1997

First underground treatment plant completed in the Philippines by Ecosystem in Lahug, Cebu using his propitary Sequence Bio Reactor.

Population count: 72,262,088

2004

Clean Water Act was passed to improve water quality and prevent pollution through improvement of sanitation and wastewater treatment.

Population count: 83,861,990

2007

Ecosystem completes first 100 projects, popularizing underground construction of SBR plants in the property development sector.

Population count: 88,557,553

2015

Ecosystem wins Technology Company of the Year from the Asia CEO Awards.

Population count: 101,716,359

2016

Ecosystem joins Metro Pacific Investments Corp within its Metro Pacific Water brand, in preparation for its next stage of growth.

Population count: 103,320,222

2018

Ecosystem founder Dr. Robert Y. So ascends to the chairmanship of Ecosystem, also after being conferred a Doctorate of Humanities Honoris Causa, for contribution in eco-philanthropy.

Population count: 106,512,074

The Philippine development sector context differs from counterparts in the developed world in that due to serverely lagging public sector infrastructure development of water supply, and especially sewewage and sanitation, the private development sector was legally mandated to treat its own sewage and wastewater, as part of regulation of construction as well as facilities management.

With high population growth also contributing to rapid urbanization, combined with the lack of public sector sanitation services, it presented a unique challenge for developers with finite space innovation is that the biological process does not emit toxic, flammable, and explosive gases, eliminating the need for expensive sensors and gas removal equipment. This meant that the treatment plants can be safely built and operated underground.

Developers no longer had to set aside valuable space just for sewage treatment above ground, which then allowed for uninhibited architectural design and uninhited usable space for residents, tenants, and guests. The development therefore fulfills its regulatory obligations and moreover makes its contributions to environmental sustainablity.

The property development sector thus continued to build and build, supporting the overall economic growth of the Philippines while being supported by a Filipino technological innovation.
