Bali Equipped With Major Waste Processing Facilities Worth Rp228 Billion

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Maritime Affairs and Investment Coordinating Minister Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan on Monday assessed that waste remains a crucial issue in Bali and that the community can no longer rely solely on landfills (TPA) as a solution. He said this drove the construction of an integrated waste processing site (TPST) in Bali.

"The investment model for the TPST’s construction is a collaboration between the central government through the PUPR (Public Works and Public Housing) Ministry," said Luhut in his statement, Monday, March 13.

He asserted that waste must be managed in an integrated manner from upstream to downstream using advanced technology. The PUPR Ministry, he continued, is building the hangar while the Denpasar City government is responsible for providing the land area. 

The private sector in PT Bali CMPP is also involved in preparing machinery and equipment with a 20-year management concession.

There are three TPSTs established in Denpasar, namely the Kesiman Kertalangu TPST, Tahura TPST, and Padang Sambian Kaja TPST. Luhut said these three facilities are the country’s inaugural city-scale waste processing facilities.

The entire capacity of the three TPSTs reaches a total of 1,020 tons on a daily basis with an investment value reaching Rp 128,633 billion and over Rp100 billion for the machinery and equipment provision.

The Kesiman Kertalangu TPST has now started trials processing up to 200 tonnes of waste per day. Its maximum capacity reaches 450 tons per day. Luhut estimates that the three TPSTs will be fully operational in June 2023.

Luhut also hopes that the three TPSTs can solve environmental problems in addition to providing economic benefits from waste processing products, one of which is refuse-derived fuel (RDF).

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo inaugurated the Kesiman Kertalangu TPST, Denpasar City, Bali Province on Monday, March 13, which according to him is the first waste treatment system with an efficient or non-complicated system.

Jokowi hopes that Kesimen's TPST can be imitated or inspired by cities or regencies in other provinces. "Obviously every city or district is required to have a waste processing site," Jokowi said when inaugurating the Kesiman Kertalangu TPST.
