Energy Saving in Industrial Wastewater Treatment System for Rubber Industry
- Representative Participant
- EMATEC:Environmental Management and Technology Center
Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity
(1) This project aims to reduce electricity consumption in blower at industrial wastewater treatment facility in PT. ABP (Aneka Bumi Pratama), crumb rubber producer in Palembang city, by replacing existing diffuser to aerator.
(2) Both Diffuser and aerator is an aeration device for wastewater treatment but principle is different. Aerator can reduce BOD more efficiently than diffuser and needs less air pressure from blower. Less air pressure contributes to reduce electricity consumption as well as CO2 emissions from electricity.
Expected GHG Emission Reductions
Reference CO2 emissions: 1,485 [tCO2/year]
Project CO2 emissions: 1,082 [tCO2/year]
