Abstract

The use of Pure Plant Oil (PPO) as a fuel blend in a power plant is mandatory as stipulated in the Ministerial Decree of Energy and Mineral Resource of the Republic of Indonesia. However, the implementation of PPO used in power generation has many obstacles due to a lack of information concerning the impacts of PPO used in the operating performance of the power generation engine. In this study, the effect of PPO as a blended fuel with High-Speed Diesel (HSD) was studied by using the gas turbine with a capacity of 18 MW. The PPO was blended based on volume with a ratio of 0%, 5%, 10% and 20%. As the results, it is shown that the use of PPO with a blend ratio of 20% is the maximum fuel blend ratio according to the threshold value of a flue gas temperature and a vibration velocity in the gas turbine.

Abstract

Renewable energy fueled power generations are few developed by private sector in Indonesia. High-cost investment and low electricity selling price to PT PLN as a single buyer is main barriers for private sector to involve in the development of renewable energy fueled power generations. In this project, the economic feasibility of Mini Hydro Power Plant of Cikaso with capacity of 5.3 MW, located at Sukabumi Regency, West Java province was assessed. This project utilized revenue generated from carbon market to increase the economic feasibility. Procedure to register the project to United Nation for Climate Change Convention (UNFCCC) as a Clean Development Mechanism project was explained in detail. Approved Consolidation Methodology (ACM) 0002 Version 12.3.0 was used to calculate grid emission factor in Jawa-Bali-Madura the grid electricity system. It was calculated that the grid emission factor is 0.833 (t-CO2/MWh), and the carbon emission reduction generated for this project is 21,982 ton/year. From the analysis result, it can be proven that the additional revenue from carbon credit could increase the project IRR from 10.28% to 13.52%.

Abstract

Utilization of empty fruit bunch (EFB) waste as a fuel for power electric generation is one of the options available for palm oil factory in the effort to reduce EFB waste. At the moment, there are several options to utilize EFB waste such as fertilization and composting. However, both ways show ineffective result, particularly in handling huge amount of EFB. Up to now, Indonesia only has a limited number of EFB fueled power plants. This paper explains technically and economically EFB fueled power plant supplying to PLN grid in Pinang Tinggi Palm Oil Factory located at Sei Bahar, Jambi Province. The economical feasibility is low, if the additional revenue generated from selling remnant oil, selling ash of EFB and selling credit carbon are not counted as an income. Using these additional revenues, the IRR project increased from 2.03% to 15.12%. The investment cost and the selling electricity price are critical sensitivity factors for project economics.
