Pertamina committed to developing new and renewable energy

The Jakarta Post
Jakarta, Indonesia | Fri, December 15, 2017 | 10:58 pm

State oil and gas company PT Pertamina recently held the two-day Pertamina Energy Forum (PEF) 2017 as part of its activities to celebrate the company’s 60th anniversary.

The Energy Forum, held on Dec.12-13 in The Raffles Hotel, Jakarta, carried the theme “Striving Towards Sustainable Energy,” which is highly relevant to the current situation, in which world energy utilization has started to shift from fossil fuels to sustainable energy. In Indonesia, domestic demand for developing the renewable energy resource potential is also on the rise, as fossil-based energy reserves continue to decline.

In his welcoming remarks, Pertamina’s president director and CEO Elia Massa Manik highlighted the company’s preparedness for developing other renewable energy resources beyond geothermal energy, which the company started to develop a long time ago.

When it comes to new and renewable energy (NRE) development projects, Pertamina does not only focus on geothermal energy, but also other energy resources including solar, wind, micro hydro, green diesel and even a storage business for the middle term. The company is open to collaboration with existing players, the government and other stakeholders to allow Pertamina to accelerate the company’s capability.

“We are ready to establish a partnership, invest, or chip-in with other companies that have or are developing technology. Through the Pertamina Energy Forum 2017, Pertamina wants to provide an opportunity for developing sustainable and renewable energy by learning, collaborating, exchanging views with experts and speakers in the forum,” he said.

According to him, there was a rising awareness in international circles about the importance of renewable energy. Pertamina ensures itself that the company is on the frontline of renewable energy.

From the international perspective, efforts to deal with the impact of climate change refer to the 2016 Paris Agreement. “Currently the Euro 4 and 5-standardized fuel has gained ground in several countries because the fuel is more environmentally friendly,” he said.

Under the leadership of President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, the Indonesian government is committed to reducing emissions caused by greenhouse gases by up to 19 percent in 2030. The government is also striving to increase the contribution of renewable energy in the national energy mix to 23 percent in 2015, up from 7 percent in 2016. The government’s energy vision has also shifted from fossil fuels to clean and green energy to propel economic growth in the future.


“So this is our challenge because the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry and the Environment Ministry consistently want to push the greater role that renewable energy will play in the future. We also welcome the government’s plan to use the Euro 4 standard in 2021. We have also started to upgrade our refineries to anticipate this challenge,” Massa explained.

Renewable energy business is predicted to grow, with bigger investment expected to be made in solar and wind-powered power plants.

“Renewable energy business has seen rapid growth. From the side of the upstream sector, renewable energy power plants will be increasingly cheaper. From the side of storage, there will be more players in battery business. The construction of a battery complex with a capacity of 100 MW was recently completed. In the downstream sector, electric or hybrid cars will also see significant growth in the future. This trend will continue exponentially in the future,” Massa said.

Partner and managing director of Boston Consulting Group (BCG) Singapore, Ashees Sastry, who spoke on “Energy Transition: Global Trends and Impact to Indonesia” said the economic growth in China, India and Southeast Asia since 2000 had pushed the demand for energy. “By far, oil and gas have become the primary energy source until the future, when renewable energy will play a more significant role.

The important role of renewable energy can be seen in the continued increase in investment and demand for renewable energy and greater attention from Asian countries paid to investment in renewable energy. Apart from that, globally, the growth of the renewable energy sector has surpassed the growth of the coal sector.

“Fossil-based fuel, especially oil, can still dominate the energy mix, but new policy initiatives have helped the region move toward a new energy era,” he said.

Toshiyuki Shirai, a senior energy analyst in the World Energy Outlook (WEO) team in the International Energy Agency, who delivered a topic on “Asia Renewable Energy, Trend,” said currently the energy demand from Southeast Asia continued to rise in parallel with global economic growth.

However, as time goes by, several countries in the region, especially China, India and Southeast Asia have started to realize the importance of using new and renewable energy in helping reduce the impact of global warming.

New policy initiatives

Several new policy initiatives have started to be set in order to implement the clean energy initiatives, one of which is the reduction of fossil fuel subsidies and an increased budget for new and renewable energy.

“Today, China contributes one quarter of investment in the renewable energy sector, while China, India and Southeast Asia contribute 40% investment in the renewable energy sector,” said Shirai.

At the same time, the impact of clean energy policy in China and the United States is projected to reduce the demand for fuel by 12 percent in 2140 globally, according to Nick Sharma, executive director of Asia Pacific, Upstream Research and Consulting, IHS Markit.

According to him, electric cars would become a logical option for the public in the future. Currently, more than 99 percent (1.28 billion units) of cars in the world use gasoline, while 0.2 percent use electric energy.

“In 2040, we project one-third from the sale of new cars in the world’s largest automotive and energy market – China, Europe and the United States – around 16 percent of cars on the road will shift to electricity,” Nick said.

Pertamina President Director Elia Massa acknowledged that the oil and gas sector remained the company’s primary business. “However, Pertamina is aware that the oil and gas resources are limited. That’s why Pertamina has started to take anticipatory measures to boost the contribution of renewable energy.

“Renewable energy is the energy of the future,” he said. Several big oil and gas companies, such as Saudi Aramco, have made huge investments in renewable energy. Pertamina itself has taken an active role in supporting the government’s efforts to increase the contribution of renewable energy to national energy consumption.

Meanwhile, Pertamina Gas director Yenni Andayani said that as a state company, Pertamina continued to increase the portion of NRE in line with the national target of 23 percent of the total national energy mix in 2025. One of the efforts that Pertamina has made is transforming business, including focusing on the development of NRE.

“This is Pertamina’s strong commitment to develop the NRE potential in Indonesia,” she said.

Pertamina sees two parameters in developing NRE, namely economic attractiveness or how attractive a project is in terms of economics and technology maturity or the provision of supporting technology.

“We take these two parameters into account in executing the business opportunity,” she said.

NRE sources considered to have high economic attractiveness and technology maturity and that have been developed by Pertamina include: geothermal, biodiesel, biomass, mini hydro and solar PV. Apart from that, there are several other NRE potentials subject to evaluation and which could be developed commercially, such as wind power, large-scale hydro, bio-aviation fuel and bioethanol.

“We are now developing PV panels. Currently, the PV installation in Pertamina’s central office and Cilacap refinery complex area has a capacity of 1 MW,” she said.

“This will continue to spread to other areas, units and Pertamina’s subsidiaries across Indonesia,” she explained.

Optimizing the use of NRE would usher Indonesia toward a sustainable economy, according to Montty Girianna, the deputy coordinating energy and mineral resources minister at the Office of the Coordinating Economic Minister.

“This means that the Indonesian economy will not only be strong, but will also sustain over the centuries to come,” he said.

He acknowledged that Indonesia still lagged behind other countries in utilizing NRE. India, for example, is developing an NRE project, called “Nehru National Solar Mission,” a solar energy-fueled power plant with a capacity of 200 GW. China has become a big player in NRE, with its solar energy-fueled power plant with a capacity of 78.1 GW and wind energy-fueled power plant with a capacity of 149 GW.

“In Indonesia itself, the use of NRE is low compared to the available potential. Currently, we utilize 8,216 GW of the total NRE potential of 443,208 MJW. However, given the positive impact of NRE on the economy, I think it is time for us to be serious about developing this sector,” she opined.

Meanwhile, in his welcoming address on the second day of PET 2017, Deputy Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Arcandra Tahar said the future direction of energy will be 1) increasing electrification, ensuring the provision of energy and the fulfillment of domestic energy needs; 2) ensuring fair and equitable energy access; 3) increasing efficiency in energy utilization; 4) ensuring self-sufficiency in energy management and 5) optimizing energy resources in an integrated and sustainable manner with the government’s support through energy policies.

The second day of the forum featured speakers including Pertamina’s SVP of Corporate Strategy Growth Daniel S Purba, Center of Waste Management Indonesia director Bayu Indrawan and Pertamina’s finance director Arief Budiman.

Daniel said the company in the last ten years had been developing several renewable energy resources. “The company has taken real action in doing this. This is our way of stepping out of our comfort zone and responding to changes in the global energy sector, which, as we see, are happening quickly.”

Furthermore, Daniel discussed multiple renewable energy projects Pertamina has conducted, namely 1-2 MW solar panel installations at several operational offices where access to power is limited and at the head office, as well as a bioethanol project using Napier grass.

The company is also studying other potentials, notably waste from plantations. As for the bio-aviation fuel and biofuel processing projects, the company uses its modified refinery facility, he said.

Also, Pertamina is working with several research institutes to develop hydrotreated biodiesel catalyst used to help convert crude oil and palm oil into good quality diesel oil.

“To support the development of new and renewable energy, Pertamina is open to collaboration and strategic alliances, be it in financing or in technology. We also continue to develop business models which work well with the company and look for potential business opportunities in the future,” Daniel said.

Meanwhile, Center of Waste Management Indonesia director Bayu Indrawan talked about the difficulty of raising funds from local investors for the development of renewable energy. “Investors in Indonesia are special. They believe a mere plan is not good enough. There must a pilot project in place with profit in sight. Only then will they believe and become interested in investing,” he said.

The first project the center has been working on, in collaboration with a developer in Tangerang city area, is the conversion of waste from the residential complex into a solid material, like coal, for a biomass fuel plant.

“There are two sources of income we can get from urban waste management. The first one is the collection of household waste and the electricity we generate. If the scale is big, we can use the common business model. But if it is smaller, we see it more as a public service cooperating with the local government,” he added.

Pertamina’s finance director Arief Budiman said with various advancement in technology, new and renewable energy resources would continue to grow.

“The power plant and vehicle industries, which all this time have relied on fossil fuels, continue to evolve. They have started to utilize sustainable energy sources. Oil and gas companies, including Pertamina, cannot just sit still. The Beyond Oil era is upon us,” said Arief in the closing speech of PEF 2017.

According to Arief, through the Pertamina Energy Forum, Pertamina aims to invite discourse and open insight into the challenges faced by the energy sector.

He expressed the hope that PEF 2017 could generate various new ideas and perspectives that Pertamina can capitalize on as a sustainable energy company.

“We can see from the best practices we’ve covered in the last two days, about how industry players and stakeholders can build synergy to realize the development of sustainable energy.

“And we also want to thank all parties who have been supportive of Pertamina, so that in the last 60 years the company has continued to grow in this country that we love,” he concluded.


Pria ini Ciptakan Pengolahan Sampah Biomassa Hidrotermal Pertama di Indonesia

JAKARTA (KBK) – Setelah sukses mengembangkan biomassa hidrotermal di Jepang. Dr. Eng Bayu Indrawan kembali ke Indonesia dengan misi yang sama, yakni ingin menghadirkan teknologi tersebut guna membantu pemerintah Indonesia menanggulangi masalah sampah yang berlarut-larut.

Menurut Direktur PT.Shinko Teknik Indonesia itu sampah sejatinya sangat berdayaguna dan memiliki nilai karena dapat disulap menjadi bahan bakar setingkat batu bara dengan biomassa hidrotermal.

Sejak tahun 2003, Bayu begitu ia akrab disapa telah berkecipung secara intensif di sektor energi dan lingkungan. Bak gayung bersambut, dirinya pun mendapatkan beasiswa penuh dari Tokyo Institute of Technology, Jepang bidang lingkungan sains dan teknologi dengan fokus pada pengolahan limbah teknologi energi yang didukung oleh Kementerian Pendidikan, Kebudayaan, Olahraga, Sains dan Teknologi Jepang.

“Di Jepang saya sempat jadi joni alias jongos nippon selama beberapa tahun, saya berpikir ingin juga mengembangkan biomassa hidrotermal di Indonesia. Saya ingin membantu pemerintah Indonesia tangani sampah. Alhamdulilah di Indonesia saya mendapat investor dari Summarecon Serpong,” jelas penerima gelar Doktor Dogree (Dr. Eng.) itu.

Teknologi pengolahan sampah hidrotermal sendiri ialah teknologi yang dapat mengubah sampah menjadi produk yang bermanfaat dan ramah lingkungan, seperti bahan bakar padat menyerupai batu bara, pupuk dan pakan ternak.

Pengolahan dimulai dengan memasukan sampah basah atau kering ke dalam reaktor dan kemudian disambung dengan sebuah pengaduk dalam reaktor selama 1 jam. Sampah lalu “dipresto” dengan suhu 28 bar hingga berubah menjadi gumpalan berserat yang memiliki aroma seperti kopi. Serat tersebut lantas dijemur selama 4 hari hingga kering dan baru bisa digunakan untuk bahan bakar.

Di atas lahan seluas 5000 meter persegi di Kampung Carang Pulang, Kabupaten Tangerang, Banten, Bayu mendapat guyuran modal dari pihak Summarecon Serpong senilai Rp 50 miliar guna mengaplikasikan pengolahan sampah biomassa hidrotermal, dimana sekitar Rp 10-20 miliar diantaranya untuk peralatan, sedangkan sisanya untuk pembangunan infrastruktur.

Dengan jumlah sampah di kawasan Summarecon Serpong sebanyak 25 ton perhari, biomassa yang diproduksi Bayu masih sangat minim sekitar 70% dari pasokan sampah dan masih digunkaan untuk kepentingan internal. Selain lebih efisien, harga jual biomassa di tingkat pasaran juga tinggi sekitar 23 USD/KwH.

“Sampah di Kabupaten Tangerang dan sekitarnya itu sekitar 1.800 ron per hari, yang baru bisa terangut 800-900 ton. Dengan biomassa ini permasalahan sampah seperti itu bisa tertangani tinggal bagaimana antar pemerintahnya,” ungkap Bayu kepada KBK awal Oktober lalu.

Kedepannya Bayu berharap dapat bersinergi dengan pemerintah baik di tingkat kabupaten maupun provinsi di Indonesia untuk duduk bersama tanggulangi permasalahan sampah mengingat biomassa hidrotermal ciptaannya merupakan yang pertama di Indonesia.


Sampah Presto dari Tangerang

Koran Tempo
Sabtu, 08 Oktober 2016

Di Tangerang, 3,15 juta penduduknya menghasilkan 1.800 ton sampah setiap hari. Hanya 800 ton yang bisa diangkut ke tempat pembuangan. Sisanya teronggok di mana-mana. "Padahal petugas sudah mengangkutnya setiap hari tanpa libur," kata Bupati Ahmed Zaki Iskandar, kemarin.

Tempat pembuangan sampah akhir Jatiwaringin milik pemerintah luasnya 20 hektare. Zaki memperkirakan, dalam lima tahun, tempat itu tak lagi bisa menampung sampah yang dihasilkan orang Tangerang yang kian bertambah. "Bayangkan, kita akan dikepung sampah," kata Zaki.

Ia mengaku sudah berkeliling ke banyak tempat untuk mencari teknologi pengolahan sampah yang tepat untuk kabupatennya. Dan, ia menemukannya justru di daerah yang ia pimpin: kawasan Summarecon Serpong di Kampung Carang Pulang, Kecamatan Pagedangan.

Pengembang properti itu membuat pengolahan sampah presto dengan menggandeng PT Shinko Teknik Indonesia pada 2014. Bermodal Rp 25 miliar, mereka membuat satu pengolah sampah berkapasitas 25 ton per hari. Hasil pengolahannya berupa biomasa padat, seperti batu bara dengan nilai kalori setara dengan 5.000 kilokalori per kilogram, tanpa limbah hasil pengolahan sedikit pun.

Menurut Direktur PT Shinko Bayu Indrawan, biomasa itu merupakan bahan bakar terbarukan yang bisa dipakai untuk menghasilkan listrik. PT Shinko memanfaatkannya untuk kembali mengolah sampah. "Sekitar 30-40 persen kembali digunakan untuk mengolah sampah, sisanya bisa dijual," kata Bayu.

Sejauh ini, sisa biomasa yang dihasilkan pengolah sampah masih dikonsumsi oleh PT Summarecon untuk bahan bakar di perumahan. "Masih untuk kepentingan sendiri," kata Direktur Eksekutif Summarecon Serpong, Magdalena Juliani.

Teknik pengolahan sampah ini sederhana. Semua jenis sampah dimasukkan ke dalam "reaktor" itu untuk digiling. Hasilnya, yang berupa bubur, kemudian dikeringkan menjadi serpihan palet. Menurut Bayu, semua sampah diolah tanpa ditimbun lebih dulu, sehingga tak memerlukan tempat penampungan.

Bupati Ahmed Zaki saat datang menengok dua hari lalu tercengang karena tak ada bau dari tempat penggilingan sampah itu. "Aromanya malah seperti kopi robusta," kata dia. Ia tertarik mengembangkan mesin serupa untuk mengolah sampah di Tangerang memakai teknologi hidrotermal ini. Menurut dia, pengolah sampah dengan teknologi ini baru ada satu di Indonesia, yakni di Summarecon.

PT Shinko, kata Bayu, sedang mengembangkan pengolah sampah itu dengan meningkatkan kapasitasnya agar bisa dipakai untuk pembangkit listrik. Dalam hitungan awal, energi listrik 1 megawatt dihasilkan oleh 100 ton sampah.

Pengolah sampah yang sudah dipakai saat ini bisa memproduksi 7-8 ton sampah per 1,5 jam. Dengan demikian, untuk mengolah 25 ton sampah per hari, mesin mesti menyala selama delapan jam. Ada 18 orang pekerja yang mengoperasikan mesin itu di area pengolahan sampah seluas 1.500 meter persegi dengan luas lahan 5.000 meter persegi.

Sampah-sampah yang digiling di sini berasal dari perumahan Summarecon, mal, dan fasilitas umum. Sampah langsung diolah di mesin begitu truk sampah tiba. Setelah digiling selama setengah jam, palet yang keluar akan dikeringkan selama dua hari di rumah kaca agar kadar airnya di bawah 20 persen.

Ahmed Zaki akan mengupayakan penggunaan mesin ini dalam pengolahan runtah di kabupaten, juga di wilayah sekitarnya. Apalagi Kota Tangerang ditunjuk pemerintah pusat sebagai satu di antara tujuh kota yang masuk program percepatan pembangunan pembangkit listrik tenaga sampah. Kota lainnya adalah Jakarta, Bandung, Makassar, Surabaya, Surakarta, dan Semarang.

Bakar Vs Uap

Presiden Joko Widodo pernah meminta para ahli segera mencari solusi untuk mengolah sampah. Badan Pengkajian dan Penerapan Teknologi pada Februari lalu menyatakan solusi tercepat adalah membakarnya. Masalahnya, tungku pembakar melepaskan gas berbahaya jika suhunya di bawah 1.000 derajat Celsius. Dan, biayanya mahal. Untuk membakar 1.000 ton sampah, biaya membangun tungkunya Rp 1,3 triliun.

Selain itu, belum ada batas emisi dari pembakaran sampah. Kementerian Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan baru menetapkan kadar gas beracun maksimal untuk insinerator rumah sakit atau limbah B3. Karena itu, menurut Direktur PT Shinko Indonesia Bayu Indrawan, hidrotermal jauh lebih cocok. "Sampah di Indonesia itu mengandung 70 persen air, sehingga jika dibakar suhunya kurang dari 1.000 derajat," kata dia.

Dengan hidrotermal, tidak ada pembakaran langsung. Yang dipakai adalah uap. "Biaya juga jauh lebih murah," kata dia.

Mengolah sampah dengan uap:
- Sampah dimasukkan ke dalam reaktor uap bertekanan tinggi dengan suhu 200-250 derajat Celsius selama 30-60 menit.
- Pisau mesin akan mencacah seluruh sampah selama 10-30 menit. Tujuannya, sampah tercampur dan menyatu.
- Mesin hidrotermal mengekstraksi uap dengan kadar air kurang-lebih sama dengan bahan baku yang dibuang.
- Sampah dikeringkan secara alami menggunakan udara selama 1-3 hari.
- Produk yang dihasilkan mesin ini berupa bahan bakar padat seperti batu bara, pupuk padat dan cair, serta pakan ternak.

Bahan baku:
Sampah perkotaan, Endapan kotoran, Residu makanan, Kotoran hewan, Sampah organik, Penguapan, Pupuk cair/padat, Pakan ternak, Mesin uap, Pengembunan

Sukses di Jepang, Peneliti ini Pulang Buat Biomassa Hidrotermal Pertama di Indonesia

Indonesia memiliki potensi biomassa berbasis sampah yang sangat besar, terutama di areal perkotaan. Pelbagai teknologi pengolahan telah ditempuh. Namun baru-baru ini, seorang insiyur asal Indonesia yang sekolah di Jepang memprakarsai dibuatnya teknologi pengolahan sampah biomassa pertama di Indonesia dengan sistem hidrotermal.

Sistem hidrotermal ini pertama kali diterapkan di Indonesia, beroperasi di Kampung Carang Pulang, Kelurahan Medang, Kecamatan Pagedangan, Kabupaten Tangerang. Disokong oleh pengembang properti swasta, proyek ini mampu menghasilkan biomassa setara batu bara yang dapat digunakan sebagai bahan energi.

Setelah sebelumnya sukses mengembangkan biomassa hidrotermal di Jepang. Dr. Eng Bayu Indrawan kembali ke Indonesia dengan misi yang sama, yakni ingin menghadirkan teknologi tersebut guna membantu pemerintah Indonesia menanggulangi masalah sampah yang berlarut-larut.

“Di Jepang saya sempat jadi joni alias jongos nippon selama beberapa tahun, saya berpikir ingin juga mengembangkan biomassa hidrotermal di Indonesia. Saya ingin membantu pemerintah Indonesia tangani sampah. Alhamdulilah di Indonesia saya mendapat investor dari Summarecon Serpong,” tukas Bayu Indrawan seperti dikutip dari KBK News.

Sejak tahun 2003, Bayu intensif melakukan riset di sektor energi dan lingkungan. Setelah itu, Bayu mendapatkan beasiswa studi di Tokyo Institute of Technology dan melakukan riset lanjutan tentang Biomassa hidrotermal.

Di Indonesia, Bayu mendirikan PT Shinko Teknik Indonesia dan bekerjasama dengan Summarecon Serpong untuk mengelola sampah menjadi biomassa diatas lahan seluar 5000 meter persegi.

Dengan bantuan teknologi hidrotermal, pengolahan sampah tersebut diharapkan mampu mengolah sampah hingga 25 ton perhari di kawasan perumahan summarecon. Nantinya, biomassa hasil olahannya akan dijual ke PLN sebagai bahan baku alternatif penghasil energi pengganti batubara yang lebih ramah lingkungan.


Summarecon Produksi 'Sampah Presto'

PT Summarecon Agung mengadopsi teknologi baru pengolahan sampah di Kampung Carang Pulang, Megang, Pagedangan, Kabupaten Tangerang. Teknologi yang dipilih adalah hidrotermal yang diklaim dikembangkan dan telah digunakan di Jepang.

Direktur Eksekutif Summarecon Serpong, Magdalena Juliani, mengatakan, melalui pengolahan hidrotermal, sampah diolah menjadi bahan padat yang bisa dimanfaatkan sebagai bahan bakar dan sumber energi listrik. Aroma yang dihasilkan dari pemrosesannya juga jauh dari bau sampah. “Saat ini produksinya masih kami gunakan untuk kepentingan sendiri," ujar Magdalena, kemarin.

Untuk pengolahan sampahnya itu, Summarecon menggandeng PT Shinko Teknik Indonesia dengan nilai investasi yang ditanam mencapai Rp 25 miliar. Investasi semahal itu memungkinkan Summarecon mengolah sampah bak tulang yang dipresto. “Apa pun bentuk sampahnya, akan lebur menjadi bubur dan dikeringkan menjadi palet," kata Direktur PT Shinko Teknik Indonesia, Bayu Indrawan. Dia menambahkan, “Ini lebih baik daripada batu bara."

Bayu mengatakan, sebanyak 25 ton sampah Summarecon per hari seluruhnya bisa diolah tanpa menghasilkan limbah. Hasilnya, 30–40 persen energinya dipakai sebagai bahan bakar untuk proses pengolahan sampah. “Selebihnya bisa dijual," tuturnya.

Tempo membuktikan proses pengolahan sampah itu tidak mengumbar aroma sampah yang tak sedap. Bupati Tangerang Ahmed Zaki Iskandar sampai terkagum-kagum. “Aromanya justru seperti kopi robusta," kata Zaki.

Zaki berharap bisa memiliki mesin dengan teknologi serupa untuk mengolah 1.800 ton sampah di Kabupaten Tangerang setiap harinya. Adapun Gubernur Banten Rano Karno berharap penanganan sampah menjadi prioritas bagi setiap pengembang perumahan. “Mari berbisnis sampah," kata Rano. AYUCIPTA


Pengolahan Biomassa Hidrotermal Pertama Di Indonesia

JAKARTA (KBK) – Sebagai Gubernur Banten, H.Rano Karno mengaku terkejut ketika mengetahui pengolahan sampah menjadi biomassa menggunakan teknologi hidrotermal hadir di wilayah kekuasannya. “Menurut saya biomassa hidrotermal dalam mengolah sampah itu hal biasa, bukan hal baru. Tetapi yang membuat saya surprise ini dibangun di lahan primer milik pengembang Summarecon dan baru pertama kali di Indonsia,” ucap Rano ketika memberikan kata sambutannya dalam acara peresmian Pengolahan Biomassa Hidrotermal cetusan Summarecon Serpong di Kampung Carang Pulang, Kabupaten Tangerang, Banten, Rabu (05/10/16). Usai memberikan kata sambutan, Rano melakukan tour kecil mengelilingi kawasan pengolahan. Diapit oleh Bupati Tangerang Ahmad Zaki Iskandar dan Bayu Indrawan selaku Direktur PT.Shinko Teknik Indonesia, Rano tampak antusias mendengarkan dan melontarkan pertanyaan kepada Bayu seputar cara kerja hidrotermal mengubah sampah menjadi biomassa. Tangan kanan Rano tampak menunjuk-nunjuk mesin pengolahan sambil bertanya dengan wajah serius. Menurut Bayu Indrawan, kini biomassa hasil olahannya masih digunakan untuk internal Summarecon karena jumlahnya yang masih minim. “Biomassa hasil hidrotermal kami akan dikembangkan menjadi bahan bakar setingkat batu bara dan direncanakan akan di jual ke PLN dengan harga yang diatur pemerintah,” jelas Bayu. Bupati Tangerang Ahmed Zaki Iskandar pun optimis, hadirnya pengolahan biomassa hidrotermal di wilayah Tangerang dapat membantu mengatasi masalah sampah di wilayah Tangerang dan sekitarnya yang per hari mencapai 1,8 ribu ton sampah. ”Saya mengucapkan terimakasih kepada Summarecon pihak yang berinvestasi untuk mengolah sampah menjadi energi baru terbarukan. Apalagi hasil akhirnya bisa jadi listrik,” tambah Ahmed.


Zumi Zola Ajak Jepang Tangani Limbah Berbahaya

Liputan6.com, Jambi - Gubernur Jambi, Zumi Zola tengah serius mengatasi masalah limbah yang kerap menjadi masalah bagi warga Jambi. Limbah tersebut mulai dari limbah medis, sawit, karet hingga limbah rumah tangga.

Menurut mantan artis dan pesinetron ini, salah satu upaya adalah dengan mengajak investor dari Jepang untuk bekerja sama. Selain itu, Zola menyebut langkah tersebut sebagai promosi Jambi di tingkat nasional dan internasional.

"Kerjasama dengan investor Jepang ini sebagai langkah pembangunan. Tentunya investor yang benar-benar terpercaya dan berpengalaman," ujar Zumi Zola di Jambi, Jumat (7/4/2017).

Menurut dia, pertemuan dengan investor asal Jepang tersebut sudah beberapa kali dilakukan. Terakhir pada Kamis, 6 April 2017 kemarin. Investor asal Negeri Sakura itu tertarik menanamkan modalnya dalam pengelolaan limbah rumah tangga, medis dan kelapa sawit.

"Khusus kelapa sawit adalah berupa sampah tandan buah kosong yang nantinya dijadikan bahan bakar dan pupuk," kata Zola.

Ia menerangkan, untuk limbah sawit maupun pabrik beberapa kali memicu keributan di tengah masyarakat. Tak jarang, sekelompok warga yang rumahnya berdekatan dengan pabrik sawit kerap mengeluh akan bau yang tidak sedap karena limbah. Belum lagi bahaya lain yang ditimbulkan karena pengelolaan limbah yang serampangan.

Bentuk kerjasamanya, Pemprov Jambi nantinya akan menyediakan lahan untuk pembangunan pabrik pengelolaan limbah serta proses perizinannya.

"Untuk langkah selanjutnya adalah kami (Pemprov Jambi) akan melakukan kajian terlebih dahulu. Keuntungan apa yang akan didapat masyarakat nanti," ujar Zola mengakhiri.

Dr. Eng. Bayu Indrawan selaku perwakilan dari Shinko Teknik Indonesia yang merupakan anak perusahaan asal Jepang menjelaskan, pengolahan limbah dengan memanfaatkan sampah menjadi energi bio massa sangat membantu mengatasi permasalahan limbah. Caranya adalah dengan mengkonversi limbah menjadi bahan bakar padat dan cair, sehingga semua limbah dapat diproses kecuali besi dan kaca.

Menurut Bayu, proses tersebut sudah dilakukan di salah satu kawasan perumahan elit di Tangerang. Dari pengolahan limbah tersebut dapat menampung 50 ton perhari dengan kapasitas 100 ton perhari. Sementara limbah cair yang dihasilkan mencapai 2.000 liter perhari, di mana limbah cair tersebut setara dengan solar atau premium.

"Jika kerjasama ini bisa dilaksanakan, Jambi menjadi yang pertama di Pulau Sumatera dalam pengolahan limbah ini," kata Bayu.
