A Japanese Company Successfully Reduces 35,000 Tons of CO2 Emissions in Indonesia

Jakarta, MINA – Japanese company, Azbil Corporation with low-carbon technology has succeeded in reducing about 35,000 tons of CO2 gas emissions in the last 10 months at the refinery unit of Indonesia’s largest gas and oil company, PT Pertamina (Persero).

The success was one of three pilot projects in Indonesia with the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) organized by the Japan Industrial and Energy Technology Development Organization (NEDO).

“In January 2020, the NEDO and the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) announced that the three projects resulted in the issuance of credits worth 37,836 tons (gas emissions) in which Azbil contributed around 92 percent, or 34,956 tons,” Azbil Corporation said in a statement press received by MINA, Saturday, February 29.

Azbil installed its advanced control technology system so that it was coordinated with several power plants automatically without operator assistance.

In addition to reducing CO2 gas, power plants are also able to cut energy use by around 4 percent which leads to cost savings of around 300 million yen, or around Rp 40 billion.

Azbil’s advanced technology has been widely applied in several countries for power generation equipment, such as boilers and turbines.

Azbil Corporation, founded in 1906, is a leading company in the building and automation industry, using measurement and control technology to provide more efficient and sustainable solutions. (R/RE1)
