Onlen Onlen

Di zaman era teknologi canggih kaya sekarang, kemalasan begitu sangat mudah diakomodasi haha..(meuni gitu amat bilangnya), lebih tepat disebut bahwa betapa banyak kemudahan yang dirasakan oleh manusia. Hebat itu bapak Ibu atau anak2 muda yang memiliki inovasi-inovasi dahsyat memudahkan manusia-manusia yang lainnya. Amal jariyah yang subhanallah..

Bagi si saya yang sekarang udah terbatas juga mobilitasnya, online shopping and online food-ing adalah 2 hal yang sangat membantu. Lagi gabisa masak (karena malas atau emang karena pusing-mualnya pada level yang lagi tinggi) maka tinggal scroll aplikasi go-food dan milih mau makan apa. Tinggal dianter ke rumah. Pun dengan belanja baju.. meskipun perutnya belum gede (iyalah baru trimester 1), tapi ketika udah pengen pake gamis biar ga sesek, maka biasanya IG yang jadi sasaran.. dan Bapak kurir akan mengantarnya tepat ke rumah.

Well, this onlen fenomenon memang makin mantap aja hari demi hari. Sebelum jadi bumil, juga udah sering pake aplikasi ojek onlen untuk memudahkan transportasi, apalagi Jakarta..

Just wondering akan sampe gimanakah teknologi informasi akan terus berkembang ^__^

 

 

Biogas and MRV

Biogas technology implementation in treating tofu wastewater industries is one of the low carbon technologies that can be used in GHG emission reduction. The emission reduction from this action could be calculated from 2 sources. Firstly, the tofu industry wastewater which could emit CH4, NO2, and CO2 if there is no treatment applied. It also will pollute the environment and cause the decreasing in water quality which plays significant role for human health there. Tofu wastewater treatment could prevent emission because the organic wastewater is treated into biogas which can be used for fuel substitution in people’s daily activities. Secondly, as mentioned before, this activity could produce biogas that can be used in fossil fuel substitution; so, this fuel substitution also could be considered as mitigation action.

Taking these sources of reduction into consideration, to calculate the emission reduction in tofu wastewater treatment activities comprehensively, it is needed to measure the reduction in energy sector and wastewater sector.

There are methodologies that could be used in the calculation, for instance IPCC guidelines, CDM project calculation, and other relevant methods. Basically the available methods have similarities or even the same except for the ways they are used. For MRV system in Indonesia, although the official institutions and system has not yet established yet, there are several methodologies use in different ways, for example the IPCC guidelines is used in RAN/RAD GRK,  while Nusantara Carbon Scheme as Indonesia’s voluntary carbon market uses ISO 14064 series. In the other hand, there are also regional carbon markets such as EU-ETS and J-VETS that also use different methods. If Indonesia is willing to join these regional carbon market, Indonesia has to prepare itself to know about the system involved in them, but CDM approach might be appropriate to be used as standard in the calculation.

Considering the RAD GRK for Central Java province as mentioned in previous workshop has decided to include the biogas technology implementation in tofu wastewater treatment to be one of the actions in their mitigation plans, here, we focused on IPCC 2006 guideline which is used as official method. However, we could also use the CDM methodologies namely AM0013 and AMS-H for detailed calculation in estimating the emission reduction. It is possible in the future that not only Central Java province who has planned to use the biogas from tofu waste but also the other regions in different policy, or other mechanisms that possible to dig the potencies of this technology.
