TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The Jakarta provincial federal government is organizing to grow its internal-city intermediate cure facility (ITF), which is intended to minimize its dependency on the key landfill in the city’s satellite city of Bekasi, Bantargebang, which is notoriously known for its trash mountains.
Jakarta intends to develop four ITFs whose construction will be handed to two of its regional-owned enterprises (BUMD): PT Jakarta Propertindo (Jakpro) and Perumda Sarana Jaya below the coordination of the Jakarta Environment Agency (Dinas LH)
The agency’s acting head, Syaripudin, claimed on Friday, March 12 the ITFs were hoped to decrease the trashes and improve them into renewable energy sources via technology-dependent waste administration process.
PT Jakpro is tasked to construct the intermediate treatment services in Sunter and the Western support spots and the latter will be designed to process up to two thousand tons of trash day-to-day with 80 % effectiveness.
The ITFs planned in the eastern and southern spots are hoped to reduce waste by 70-90 p.c, particularly looking at that trash dropped at the Bantargebang landfill proceeds to mature on a day by day foundation from 5,665 tons in 2014 to 7,424 tons in 2020.
In the meantime, the Sunter ITF, which functions as the principal headquarters, is hoped to cut down 2,200 tons of trash and general waste and generate potential electrical power up to 35 megawatts.
“This challenge is hoped to be one of the quite a few endeavours of making use of trash into electrical energy that will be advantageous for Jakarta inhabitants,” said Syaripudin.
