Municipal Solid Waste to Energy

By April 8, 2021No Comments

Indonesia generates approximately 65 million ton of waste annually, which, without a real solution in place, will continue to grow exponentially. Globally, Indonesia is in the top 5 countries of Municipal Solid Waste generators

Untreated MSW causes numerous problems:

  • Environmental degradation: Centralized landfills require excessive transportation causing environmental and social degradation.
  • Health hazards: Landfills emit toxic and greenhouse gases leading to various respiratory diseases and global warming
  • Water and soil contamination: Leachate accumulates contaminants and causes a variety of diseases.

Due to its high efficiency and good eco-friendly performance characteristics, gasification technology provides an opportunity for the conversion of municipal solid wastes into clean energy. CPI and its partner Ankur Technology propose the use of this technology to handle solve many MSW-related problems:

  • Distributed solution: Relevant for villages, towns and cities of all sizes.
  • Lowest emissions: No harmful solid and liquid emissions. Gaseous emissions are well within limits.
  • Volume reduction: Complete conversion of MSW to energy or usable products. No landfilling.
  • Financially viable: The plant and operational expenditures ensure fastest recovery of capital.
  • Support of the reduce-reuse-recycle movement: The remains of the 3R can be processed in the gasification of waste, thus avoiding these remains to end up in landfill.

The types of MSW that can be transformed into energy:

Plastics

Food, garden and textiles wastes

Paper and cardboard

Leather

Ongoing and Potential MSW to Energy Projects

  • Main technology supplier for 5 MW of MSW gasification in Solo, Central Java. Project stage: construction with target completion end of 2021.
  • 400 KW to 1 MW of MSW gasification development in Bali. Project stage: discussions with related stakeholders.
