Mission report on selection of biodigester design and Formulation of Quality Control Framework and certification procedures for biogas constructors (2009).
One of the activities to be conducted for a Domestic Biogas Programme (DBP) is the selection of the most appropriate technology for dissemination under the framework of Indonesia Domestic Biogas Programme. A Terms of Reference (TOR) was developed by IDBP with the following objectives:
• To select the best suitable standard model of biogas plants for Indonesian context
• To formulate the general quality control framework
• To device the certification process for private sector participation.
Based upon TOR, a technical mission was organised during the period June 06-26, 2009. The overall development objective of the DBP in Indonesia is to disseminate domestic biodigesters as a local, sustainable energy source through the development of a commercial, market oriented sector in selected Indonesian provinces.
This brief report summarises the activities and outcomes of the mission. Some of the main activities of the mission were the stakeholders’ workshop and presentations on selection of a biogas plant model, discussion on quality control framework, and certification process for private sector.
The study has concluded that Indonesia has a high potential for biogas technology given the favourable social climatic, as well as technological conditions. However, there are some visible challenges for Indonesia Domestic Biogas.
