NEW EMISSION REDUCTION POLICY IN INDONESIA. 23 – 25 March 2021
Mercury emissions from the Indonesian coal fleet – An opportunity for stakeholder engagement and a call for project proposals
The IEACCC has recently completed Phase 1 of a State Department funded project aimed at reducing the emissions of mercury from the coal sector in Indonesia. An evaluation of the entire Indonesian coal utility fleet, on a unit-by-unit basis, has indicated that there are fewer than 15 units (out of over 100) which could be responsible for almost 50% of the total mercury emissions from the existing fleet over their remaining plant lifetime. This offers a significant opportunity for a targeted mercury reduction strategy.
