Indonesia: JFE Engineering Corporation has started work on a 28MW waste heat recovery (WHR) project for PT Semen Indonesia, the leading state-owned cement company in Indonesia. The WHR project will be designed and manufactured by the Japanese engineering firm with installation by local contractors at the Tuban cement plant in West Java. Commissioned of the plant is scheduled for the end of 2014.
The Semen Indonesia project is the second WHR build JFE Engineering has undertaken in Indonesia following a previous project for Semen Padang. This project is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 130,000t at full load operation. Further collaboration between JFE Engineering and Semen Indonesia, following a strategic agreement signed on 23 October 2013, will see coordination between the companies on WHR projects and waste management in Indonesia and Vietnam.
The project from JFE Engineering is part of a feasibility study of the Joint Credit Mechanism (JCM) by the Ministry of Environment of Japan (MOEJ), to offset Japan's emissions targets through low carbon projects overseas. Once awarded accreditation on the scheme, the project will be supported by a subsidy from the MOEJ.
