Indonesia: Gikoko Bekasi - LFG Flaring Project
(The Netherlands CDM Facility)

UNFCCC Reference No.: 2509

The gas-flaring facility at Bekasi’s Sumur Batu landfill will generate up to seven hundred cubic meters of solid waste each year. The flaring technique essentially traps the methane gas resulting from solid waste, and goes a long way in reducing the number of climate pollutants deriving from Bekasi. Methane is a greenhouse gas that is potentially 21 times more harmful than CO2, the main contributor to global warming. The flaring facility will be built by PT Gikoko Kogyo Indonesia, an engineering company that specializes in clean air technology.

The World Bank, acting as a trustee of the Netherlands Clean Development Facility, will help provide the social benefit component. “Seven percent of the revenues will support community development in Sumur Batu,” said Bekasi city secretary Tjandra Utama Effendi in a press conference after the signing ceremony. “Another 10 percent of the revenue will be added to the local budget.”
