The Cost Benefit Analysis Between Conventional Final Shelter with Refuse Derived Fuel Waste Management in Cilacap City
Abstract: Urban Waste Disposal has become a major concern of the Cilacap Regency Government. Urban waste is currently estimated at 2.25 liters per household / day. Taking into account population growth, the total urban waste that will be generated reaches around 1.15 million m3 / year by 2020. One of the TPA Cilacap, TPA Tritih Lor in Jeruklegi Subdistrict, which is the largest landfill in Cilacap Regency, receives approximately 120 tons of waste per day. This landfill will reach its maximum capacity in 2018 (DLHK, 2017). The problems that arise in the city of Cilacap with the presence of a pile of garbage in the landfill that is not managed properly is getting more and more days because it is directly proportional to population growth and will also impact the decline in environmental quality. Tritih Lor Landfill in Jeruklegi District, which is the largest landfill in Cilacap Regency, receives approximately 120 tons of waste per day. This landfill will reach its maximum capacity in 2018. One of the sustainable long-term methods chosen by the Cilacap District Government is to transform urban waste into Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF), which is a high calorific value separation from processed waste, which can be used as an alternative fuel for cement plants. RDF processing obtained from urban waste will reduce the landfill volume and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by avoiding the formation of methane gas in the landfill. In this study, research related to the comparison of the value of investment and operational processing of conventional waste compared to investment and operational processing of waste using RDF. The conclusion of this study including 1) Reducing 80 % of garbage into the landfill, 2) Watersheds and groundwater are not contaminated with leachate (leachate is significantly reduced), 3) Scavengers can still operate, with a safer OSH approach, 4) Open employment opportunities in waste processing facilities, 5) Avoid conflicts caused by land acquisition process for new landfill, 6) Contribution Global warming can be avoided or reduced due to CH4 and C gas 2) the result of decomposition of waste does not occur, 7) Extend the life of the existing landfill, 8) The creation of a clean environment and reduced pollution of soil, water and air, with the remaining production in the form of top soil that is beneficial to crop land.
