Indonesia can apply clean coal technology to reduce emissions

Indonesia has teamed up with the World Coal Association (WCA) consider to apply high efficiency, low emissions (HELE) clean coal technologies, developed to increase the efficiency of coal-fired power plants and maintain international commitments to mitigate climate change risks.

WCA chief executive Benjamin Sporton explained that with HELE, Indonesia could reduce emissions of carbon dioxide ( CO2 ) and other greenhouse gases as well as non-greenhouse gases such as nitrogen oxide (NOx), sulphur dioxide ( S02 ) and particulate matter.

"This technology allows Indonesia to continue to use its coal resources to meet increasing energy demand and promote economic growth while continuing to meet its emission reduction targets in the Paris Agreement," Sporton told journalists on Tuesday.

He added that although it was slightly more expensive, the clean coal technology could reduce CO2 emissions by 35 percent compared to existing technology, which is less efficient.

Indonesia is the fourth-largest coal producer in the world. As an abundant source of fuel, coal remains a primary component of the country’s efforts to provide electricity to a bigger percentage of its population. Currently, 50 coal-fired power plants are operational in Indonesia with a capacity of 19,404 megawatts (MW).

Under the Paris Agreement within the framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Indonesia has committed unconditionally to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 29 percent in 2030 compared to business as usual. The target could be increased to 41 percent if the country receives international support. .

This year in Thailand-what next?

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


Indonesia  to launch 13th economic package this month

Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said on Wednesday that the government would release its 13th economic policy package in August, adding that the draft had been completed.

Darmin said the 13th package was largely an extension of the previous one, but would expand its focus beyond industry. The 12th package focused on small and medium enterprises.

"We are just waiting to schedule a meeting with the president," Darmin told reporters at his office. He refused to give the exact date the new policy package would come into effect.

 The ministry team must meet with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo one more time to finalize the details, Darmin said.
