Bantar Gebang landfill to become waste residue processing center
The Jakarta Post
Bantar Gebang landfill will become a center for waste residue processing after Jakarta operates an intermediate treatment facility (ITF) for garbage this year.
Jakarta Environment and Sanitation Agency deputy head Ali Maulana said Jakarta would still need the Bantar Gebang landfill in Bekasi, West Java, to accommodate residue from processed garbage after the development of the waste-to-energy facility.
“Jakarta produces 7,000 square meters of garbage per day. Even if all the waste is processed at ITFs, there will be around 10 percent residue that can be dumped at Bantar Gebang,” Ali said as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com on Thursday.
The city plans to establish five ITFs near industrial estates in East and North Jakarta, Ali said.
The groundbreaking of the ITF in Sunter, North Jakarta, is scheduled for later this year with an estimated budget of Rp 3 trillion (US$224.9 million). It will be developed in cooperation with a Finnish company. (wnd)
