Energy saving in industrial wastewater treatment for rubber industry

Implementing Entity:Environmental Management and Technology Center (EMATEC)

Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

Technology to be adopted (aerator technology)
  • This aerator strongly mix air from blower and wastewater to treat wastewater aerobically.
  • There is no pressure loss in aerator and can reduce electricity consumption at blower.
  • This aerator needs no maintenance more than 15 years.
  • This aerator can use existing air pipe.
PT. Aneka Bumi Pratama (PT. ABP), crumb rubber company in Kota Palembang, needs more efficient wastewater treatment system to meet wastewater quality standard in Indonesia. This project will substitute existing diffuser to Japanese aerator to improve wastewater treatment in PT. ABP as well as reduce electricity consumption and cost for changing diffuser.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

745 tCO2/year

  • Reference CO2 emissions: 2,484 tCO2/year
  • Project CO2 emissions: 1,739 tCO2/yea
By this project, CH4 emissions from industrial wastewater treatment will be reduced since aeration condition in wastewater treatment will be improved. Therefore, expected CH4 reduction through this project will be evaluated additionally.
