PT Dharma Satya Nusantara Tbk has commissioned the first Bio-CNG Plant in Indonesia at Muara Wahau, East Kalimantan in October, 2020. The Bio-CNG Plant project is a testament of our commitment to implement the circular economy concept to replace the use of Fossil Fuels in our electricity generation and transportation through the use of in-situ byproducts (waste) in a sustainable and cost effective way.

The Bio-CNG plant utilizes methane capture from the liquid waste produced by our Palm Oil Mill. The methane captured is utilized in an engine which powers two 0.6 Kilowatt generators that their combined capacity can generate 1.2 Megawatts of electricity. The electricity from the Gas generators is used to power our in-situ Palm Kernel Crushing Plant (KCP) which had previously depended on Diesel generators for power.

Beyond that, the excess methane gas captured is further scrubbed and purified to approximately above 90% methane content and then compressed in the Bio-CNG Plant with a capacity of 280 m3/h. The Bio-CNG gas is secured safely in gas containers for mobility to transport around our plantation. The containers of Bio-CNG gas are distributed to several sites in our plantations using Bio-CNG-fueled trucks where it is used to replace fossil fuels in electricity generators, as well as in transportation vehicles.

This project provides DSNG a form of sustainable in-situ renewable energy (RE). Using this RE, we estimate that we could reduce our utilization of approximately 2 Million liters of diesel fuel per year for our power generation and vehicles.

More importantly, DSNG will also reduce its Green House Gas emission by approximately 50,000 tones CO2 per year. In simple terms, the reduction of more than 50,000 tones CO2, is equivalent to planting of over 800,000 trees or removing 11,000 units of passenger’s car from being used or removing 17,000 tons of landfill or trash.

At DSNG, we strive to be the responsible choice for people, planet and prosperity.
