Become Local Heroes, Herry Wijaya Optimized Can Reduce Waste Problems in Indonesia

BECOME LOCAL HEROES, HERRY WIJAYA OPTIMIZED CAN REDUCE WASTE PROBLEMS IN INDONESIA

The CEO of BANANA & Partners, Herry Wijaya, was invited as a guest speaker on the Local Heroes Talk Show on Thursday, (14/4/2022) in commemoration of the 19th Anniversary of Tribun Kaltim. Thanks to his contribution to reducing the waste problem in East Kalimantan, Herry Wijaya has been dubbed a waste hero. Herry Wijaya together with BANANA & Partners has a mission to manage waste, which is considered very effective and provides benefits to the community. BANANA & Partners itself, is a company that focuses on waste management and renewable energy.

On the Talk Show, Herry Wijaya explained the BANANA & Partners programs that were run to support the waste management mission. Several programs, such as Pay with Garbage, Alms Uses Garbage, Smart Use Garbage, and Healthy Use Garbage, use the concept of community empowerment.

In addition to the community empowerment program, Herry also revealed that BANANA & Partners also wants to form a sustainable ecosystem in the green economy. This program was later named BANA Academy. This program is open to final-year students and recent graduates who want to learn about the green economy and waste management. The hope is that this ecosystem will be sustainable and can help create a waste-free environment.

Not only in East Kalimantan, BANANA & Partners is also expected to grow globally. Therefore, Herry also revealed that on April 16–17, 2022, through the Research and Development Advisor BANANA & Partners, they will conduct a public presentation at SET Weekend, Tokyo, Japan.

Herry also explained that BANANA and Partners provide the main service, namely in the form of garbage collection using environmentally friendly electric vehicles. Then, the organic waste is processed to renew energy, while the inorganic waste will be processed into new goods. In Sepinggan, Balikpapan, at a place called PANDORA (Waste Recycling — Pusat Industri Daur Oelang Rumahan), all of the waste is processed.

BANANA & Partners received waste cooking oil to be processed into biodiesel and disinfectant. Organic waste can be used as activated charcoal, which can be used for cosmetics, and inorganic waste can be used to make bricks and other construction materials. Several companies, like Universal Tekno Reksajaya, Astra Motor, Pertamina, Prakasa Pratama Pier, and the Kalimantan Institute of Technology campus, have used the services and products of processed waste from BANANA & Partners.

Currently, BANANA & Partners is also utilizing blockchain technology to develop a circular economy in sustainable waste management. On March 1, 2022, BANANA & Partners launched the BANA Token as a utility to develop the Waste Recycling Center Ecosystem from upstream to downstream.

In the Talk Show, Herry did not forget to invite the community to contribute through the BANA Token. Herry explained how the process of purchasing products using the BANA Token. First, we have to prepare a crypto wallet first. After that, we can purchase pBANA tokens through the BANA Token Customer Service. Finally, we can only transact processed waste products from BANANA & Partners. This BANA Token will be used in the future to build PANDORA in different cities so that sustainable waste management can be spread out across Indonesia.

With the programs launched by BANANA & Partners, Herry Wijaya hopes that public awareness of waste will be raised. Herry is optimistic that by doing it together, we can realize a waste-free Indonesia.

DOES THE WASTE PROBLEM HAVE A STORY END?

DOES THE WASTE PROBLEM HAVE A STORY END?

Indonesia has been struggling with waste management problems for a long time. Based on data from the 2020 Waste Management Performance Achievement by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry from 275 regencies/cities throughout Indonesia, waste generated annually reaches 33.1 million. From a large amount of waste, unmanaged waste reached 40.7%. This amount is quite a lot to be homework that must be completed.

Many piles of untreated waste also come from households. Based on the data, there is 38% of household waste from the total amount of untreated waste. Waste that is not managed correctly can be a severe threat to the environment and public health. There have been many stories of piles of waste that have had a terrible impact. One of the ironic events was the landslide of a mountain of waste at the Cileungsi TPA, which claimed lives. Because of this incident, February 21 was later commemorated as National Waste Commemoration Day, hoping that the harmful effects caused by landfills would not be repeated.

Then, is this waste problem not taken seriously?

This question can be answered quickly. Of course, all parties, the government and the community, pay great attention to this problem. Indonesia has a target of reducing waste by 30% by 2025. However, to achieve this target, has the effort been maximized?

The problem of waste and all its drama has undoubtedly received much attention. However, there are not many sustainable waste management programs that can significantly reduce waste accumulation.

That’s what BANANA & Partners is here for.

In addition to eliminating pessimism about the waste problem, BANANA & Partners also wants to create sustainable waste management and processing ecosystem that is healthy, environmentally friendly and positively impacts society. BANANA & Partners offers the Home-based Recycling Center (PANDORA) as a solution to deal with the enormous amount of waste.

PANDORA is a centre for waste processing and producing various products such as composite materials and renewable energy owned by BANANA & Partners. In one pandora, there are several technologies, including plastic machines, FAME machines, and carbonized. We can produce FAME, biochar/charcoal, disinfectant, press plastic and shredded plastic. The largest production capacity is cooking oil into biodiesel at 400 L per day and plastic at 3 tons per day.

BANANA & Partners work together to process waste into environmentally friendly energy products. BANANA & Partners collects waste from the community; then, it is further processed to be used as energy in the form of biochar.

Waste into energy

On the other hand, it’s like crossing two or three islands once; BANANA & Partners simultaneously wants to reduce dependence on fossil energy. Based on a press release from the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources of the Republic of Indonesia, Arifin Tasrif, on October 22, 2020, it was explained that an energy transition is essential. In the next nine years, this relates to oil, natural gas will run out in 22 years, and coal will run out in the next 65 years. Meanwhile, Indonesia currently has an energy source capacity of 70.96 GW with 35.36% coal, 19.36% natural gas, 34.38% from petroleum, and only 10.9% from new and renewable energy.

BANANA & Partners strives to provide clean, environmentally friendly energy that the community can reuse. An example is the use of used cooking oil for biodiesel energy products. In 2019, Indonesia produced a sizeable waste of used cooking oil, reaching 13 million tons. This figure is significant because it is only below the European Union, which produces 22.7 million tons, America produces 16 million tons, and India produces 23 million tons.

The abundant use of waste and used cooking oil in Indonesia can reduce Indonesia’s dependence on fossil energy in Indonesia. Waste that is converted into biochar and used cooking oil converted into diesel oil can reduce fossil energy needs, which are still very high.

BANANA & Partners collected waste in the form of waste and used cooking oil from the community; then, it is further processed as energy in the form of biochar and diesel oil. In this process, BANANA & Partners also prioritize environmentally friendly processing processes. The technology used is called carbonized. Benefits that our Carbonizer technology namely can provide:

  1. Zero Emissions: without emitting dioxins, furans and sulfur oxides
  2. It is easy to operate and suitable for mixed waste: it does not require special operating skills and does not require complicated separation processes
  3. Cost Saving: production costs only need less than IDR 290,000 per one ton of waste.
  4. Providing clean energy: products include charcoal, ash, clean water, synthetic gas, and heat. The wider community and industry can directly use charcoal.
  5. Fast process: carbonization only takes 2 to 3 hours to treat the waste.

Circular Economy for Sustainable Waste Management

With the technology that BANANA & Partners has, the solution to the waste problem is at hand. However, we need a concept to make the solution to this waste and energy management system sustainable.

BANANA & Partners designed the circular economy concept to address this challenge. The circular economy ecosystem is built in the form of PANDORA. This step begins with the management of waste collected from the community and B2B services, either with companies, institutions, or Village-Owned Enterprises (BUMDes). There are also community empowerment programs for waste collection in waste and used cooking oil, such as Pay with Waste, Healthy Use Waste, Smart Use Waste, and Alms Use Waste. The collected waste, both organic and inorganic, is processed using the carbonized technology that we created to produce new products that are competitive in the market and are renewable.

BANANA & PARTNERS LAUNCHES BANATOKEN AS A CIRCULAR ECONOMY TOKEN FOR WASTE MANAGEMENT PROCESS

BANANA & Partners was founded in 2021 starting from concerns about the threat of waste to the environment, people’s dependence on fossil energy, and Indonesia’s current economic condition. With these four goals in mind, BANANA & Partners was born. Waste management, renewable energy, the circular economy, and the blockchain were all on the list.

Problems regarding waste that accumulates and are not processed make BANANA & Partners work together to process waste into environmentally friendly energy products. BANANA & Partners has a recycling center (Pusat Industri Daur Oelang Rumahan (PANDORA) operating in Balikpapan. In mid-2022, PANDORA will be present in the Tangerang Regency area in collaboration with Pertamina, New Energy Nexus, and Moretrash. The collected waste will be processed into various kinds of environmentally friendly products. Waste processing carried out at PANDORA uses carbonizer technology, which can process waste in 2–3 hours without producing smoke that damages the environment. It is innovative, a solution, but still eco-friendly.

Waste management carried out by BANANA & Partners uses the Circular Economy concept so that the community empowerment process continues in a sustainable manner. In 2022, BANANA & Partners launched the BANA Token. BANA Token is a real project from BANANA & Partners to realize a circular economy system from waste processing. In this regard, BANANA & Partners collaborated with BeKind to develop blockchain technology.

BANANA & Partners has processed 1,452 tons of plastic waste into plastic raw materials, 13.51 tons of office waste, 12.2 tons of used cooking oil (UCO) processed into biodiesel and disinfectant, and has been able to reduce 39.98 tons of carbon emissions by 2021. Later, it is hoped that PANDORA will be able to spread to other parts of Indonesia so that waste management has a bigger, more long-term effect.

Starting Tuesday, March 1, 2022, BANANA & Partners officially releases BANAToken. The private sale stage is carried out for 6 months starting from March 2022, then it will proceed to the pre-sale stage. Complete information about the BANA Token and the white paper is published on the https://banatoken.xyz/ page. We also have a BANA Token Indonesia community group to conduct dialogue and ask questions about the BANANA & Partners project and also the BANA Token. Banana & Partners hopes that many parties will support BANA Token so that it can have a larger positive impact in overcoming Indonesia’s waste, energy, and economic problems.
