Jakarta to conduct green fuel RDF production trial in October

JAKARTA (ANTARA) – The Jakarta Environment Agency will conduct a trial of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) production from waste treated at Bantargebang Integrated Waste Management Site (TPST) from October to December 2022.

“We aim to conduct operational trials by December 2022 and be fully operational by January 2023,” Asep Kuswanto, director of the Jakarta Environment Office, said here on Thursday. I was.

Kuswant explained that the RDF processing site at TPST Bantargebang will be able to produce around 750 tons of RDF in the form of environmentally friendly coal from 2,000 tons of waste per day.

The 2,000 tons of waste consist of 1,000 tons of new waste and 1,000 tons of old waste. On the other hand, RDF can be used as an alternative fuel in cement plants and help reduce air pollution.

According to Kuswanto, work to build the RDF facility is now more than 70 percent complete, with a target completion date of October 2022, after which a cooperation agreement has been signed.

On October 10, 2022, Kuswanto said his side will sign contracts with two cement companies for the use of RDF products.

He explained that under the cooperation scheme, the two cement companies will use RDF for 10-15 years. Kuswanto said the RDF processing site reached about 50 million cubic meters at heights of up to 50 meters, and he hopes to reduce the amount of waste in the Bantargebang landfill.

In addition to obtaining green fuels for energy from RDF and compost, waste reduction at TPST Bantar Gebang enables new land to be reused.

Meanwhile, Jakarta sent 7,800 tons of waste to TPST Bantargebang every day.
