CEBU CITY

Antonio Tompar, chairman of water technology provider Mactan Rock Industries Inc. (MRU), is urging the use of desalination technology to mitigate water scarcity in Cebu.

"The Philippines has a lot of water sources aside from huge river banks," Tompar said. "Even stored rain water can be converted into purified fresh water safe for human consumption."
