Incinerator expected to process 2,000 tons of Jakarta's trash daily
The Jakarta Post
Jakarta expects to thermally process 2,000 tons of waste daily with its first incinerator treatment facility (ITF) in Sunter, North Jakarta.
The incinerator, expected to be constructed between August and October on 3 hectares of land, is intended to solve the chronic trash problem in Jakarta, which produces around 7,000 tons of trash daily.
"With the 3-ha plot of land, we want to maximize treatment to process 2,000 tons per day," said Satya Heragandhi, president director of city-owned developer PT Jakarta Propertindo, which is responsible for building the facility.
The incinerator would use technology that complies to strict environmental standards used in Nordic countries, he explained.
Currently, he said, the developer is waiting for the central government to finish the re-deliberation of a presidential regulation on the facility’s construction.
Once the paperwork is finished, city officials can proceed with the project.
Previously, in November last year, the Supreme Court revoked Presidential Regulation (Perpres) No. 18/2016 on accelerating the development of waste-based power plants or incinerators, based on a request by various civic groups that showed concerns about the impact of these incinerators on the environment and the public’s health.
