    Doosan Lentjes @ Waste-to-Energy Asia Summit 2017: Technology experts meet Indonesian waste sector

    From 07 – 09 June 2017, Doosan Lentjes will discuss the potential of waste-to-energy (WtE) for Indonesia on the Waste-to-Energy Asia Summit to take place in Jakarta, Indonesia.

    According to the local Environment & Forestry Ministry, the roughly 250 million Indonesian citizens produce 175,000 tons of solid waste per day which is equivalent to 64 million tons per year. From these amounts, currently, 69% are sent to non-sanitary open dumpsites which has substantially negative effects on both environment and human health due to harmful greenhouse gas emissions being released. Simultaneously, increasing levels of urbanisation and a growing Indonesian middle class will result in even higher amounts of waste generated in the future while requiring more electricity to be produced.

    “This situation requires the application of advanced technologies that help to meet the Indonesian challenges of both reliable waste disposal and power shortage”, says Reinhard Knittel, Sales Director at Doosan Lentjes. “In doing so, the Indonesian government follows a proven waste hierarchy approach prioritising waste reduction, reusing and recycling. However, when recycling is not an option, the thermal waste treatment of solid waste is the final, indispensable stage of a modern and sustainable waste management concept, reducing waste volumes by more than 90 percent while recovering valuable power from the solid waste – a largely CO-2 neutral energy source. At the Waste-to-Energy Asia Summit 2017, we are pleased to discuss how state-of-the-art WtE processes tailored to individual requirements can help local clients implement sustainable waste management concepts supporting local efforts to maximise environmental protection”, concludes Knittel.

    The event in Jakarta will unite professionals from across the Indonesian and beyond waste management sector and deliver valuable information about latest technological developments, local markets and players.
