Transforming Coconut Shell into Briquettes

Transforming Coconut Shell into BriquettesDozens of media chief editors in Indonesia made a visit to the community-based waste management at Tanah Lot tourist attraction on Saturday (Jun 15). Aside from having a closer look at the waste management of coconut shells into briquette, the entourage also saw the magnificence of the tourist object. “This visit also serves as media campaign,” said the Operation Manager of Tanah Lot tourist attraction, I Ketut Toya Adnyana.

Toya Adnyana said the eco-friendly waste management system at Tanah Lot was in collaboration with the Aqua and Tabanan government which had been running since three years ago. The program consisted of three phases, namely the establishment of the Independent Community Movement for Waste Care (Gemaripah Serasi), socialization and education for people regarding the proper waste disposal.  

Currently, the community movement handled the processing of the young coconut shell garbage. On average, the garbage of young coconut shell generated per day reached 2 trucks, where in high season or holiday season the daily production of garbage reached 6 trucks. “To give economic value, then the coconut shell garbage is processed into briquettes and sold by local people to get additional income,” he said.

Chairman of the organization, I Made Sulindra, said that to make briquettes, the coconut shell garbage should be cut into pieces and then mixed with sawdust. Afterwards, the briquettes were sold to hotels and restaurants in Bali used to grill fish, satay and others. “At the moment, we are conducting various trials in order the briquettes produced can comply with the standards desired by hotel industry,” he added.

Meanwhile, VP Corporate Secretary of Danone Aqua, Parmaningsih Hadinegoro, said that some tourist destinations in Bali, including Tanah Lot becoming the icon of Bali, faced the waste problem that had not been managed well. The more tourist arrivals, the more garbage generated. “Aqua through its CSR has a sustainable initiative program in the form of the Integrated Community-based Waste Management,” she said. (BTN/015)
