San Juan, Puerto Rico
This report, prepared for Punto Verde of Puerto Rico, proposes a waste management plan for the Punto Verde Park. The plan includes composting, recycling, and waste removal. The report also explores the feasibility of incorporating green roofing, solar power, and biodiesel technology within the Park. We found that green roofing is not feasible at this time, but recommend creating an educational display of a green roof. We also found that a photovoltaic solar system will benefit the Park. Lastly, we determined that although biodiesel is the Park's most cost effective energy option, there is not currently enough information available to commit to the technology.
