The Jakarta administration is planning to build three treatment centers that will use waste to generate energy, Governor Fauzi Bowo said on Wednesday.

"What we want is to turn waste to energy, and this process has already begun," Fauzi said.

The Cakung Cilincing intermediate treatment facility in North Jakarta, which began operating on Aug. 1, uses mechanical and biological technology to recycle inorganic waste and to ferment organic waste to produce gas that can be used as fuel. After processing, the waste is then sent to a landfill.

The treatment center will be able to process 400 tons of waste daily until the end of the year and 600 tons daily from January. It will reach its full capacity of 1,300 tons in July next year, he said.

When running at full capacity, the Cakung Cilincing ITF will be able to produce 4.95 megawatts of electricity, or 445,669 million metric British thermal units of gas fuel.

Fauzi said that the two other intermediate treatment facilities, would be built in Sunter and Marunda, both in North Jakarta, before the end of the year.

The existing Sunter waste facility, which sits on five hectares of land, will be upgraded into an ITF, Fauzi said.

"We are going to enhance the technology at the Sunter processing station into an ITF," Fauzi said. "The city sanitation office will cooperate with private sector companies interested in investing."

The Sunter ITF, Fauzi said, would use technology based on an incinerator that would be capable of reducing the volume of waste by 90 percent, producing a large amount of electricity and significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Eko Bharuna, head of the Jakarta Sanitation Office, said the Sunter project would be tendered in September.

"We are involving the private sector under a build, own, operate and transfer arrangement," Eko said. "We have chosen this option so as not to burden the regional budget."

"With these three ITFs and the Bantar Gebang landfill, Jakarta's waste problem will be solved for the next decade, as their cumulative processing capacity will be more than 8,000 tons per day," he said.

ASEAN  ANALYSIS

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
