MSW landfill assessment and technical consultancy for the reduction of landfill amounts

Landfilling is easy and cheap in short-terms. But even engineered landfills harm the environment and population, also each ton of landfilled waste means a loss of resources, calorific value, potential business and growth. Each ton of landfilled waste means also a loss of space and a contamination of a landfill area. Open dumps and engineered landfills without a proper methane gas emission collection also present a great danger to their local and global surrounding. How to change this? The team of BlackForest Solutions conducts onsite landfill assessment, social studies, stakeholder integration and creates technical optimization concepts, which respect local conditions and budgets - from simple organic stream separation methods to fully-automated RDF production centers. In Tasikmalaya, EKONID and BFS consult the municipal decision makers how to proceed and which technologies to choose for the reduction of a currently high landfill rate, facing capacity and area restrictions.

Project details

Municipal waste landfill

In Indonesia, the majority of MSW ends up in engineered, secured or unsecured landfills. Besides waste transfer stations and informal sector activities, separation and recycling rarely take place.

Waste composition analysis

To be able to create technical concepts and to optimize current waste stream disposal, logistics, separation and/or recycling measures, a detailed onsite assessment and waste composition analysis is crucial.

Landfill rate reduction

Landfilling of organic waste should be prevented due to toxic processes, leachate water impacts and methane gas emissions. Also valuable recyclables should be separated professionally and overall landfill rates be minimized.
