Indonesia Indonesia’s new regulation on industrial emissions management

Mandatory installation of CEMS in 10 type industries

On May 24, 2021, the Minister of Environment and Forestry Regulation No. 13 of 2021 on Continuous Emission Monitoring System for Industrial Emissions was enacted in Indonesia and came into effect on the same day. This regulation requires certain industries to install a Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS) and to connect the data to the Continuous Industrial Emission Monitoring Information System (SISPEK) operated by the government.

Target Industry Types

The following ten types of industries are required to install a CEMS:

  1. iron and steel refining
  2. pulp and paper manufacturing
  3. rayon
  4. carbon black
  5. oil and gas
  6. mining
  7. waste incineration
  8. cement
  9. thermal power plant
  10. fertilizer/ammonium nitrate

The above mentioned eligible entities must be connected to SISPEK by January 1, 2023 in accordance with this regulation.

 

Procedure for connection to SISPEK

The procedure for connecting to SISPEK consists of the following five steps:

  1. Registration
  2. Submit of administrative data
  3. Submit of technical data
  4. Verification
  5. Connection test

 

The first step, “Registration“, is to send in an application form on the dedicated system (https://ditppu.menlhk.go.id). The application form must include information such as the stack code, emission source, and the type of CEMS. If there are no problems with the application, a registration number will be issued via the same system.

The next step is to submit both “Administrative data” and “Technical data” on the system, which consist of the following information:

Administrative data

      1. Company profile
      2. Chimney installation location
      3. Emission sources

Technical data

      1. Reference information of CEMS such as model number and supplier data
      2. Profile of the quantity of emission sources installed and persons in charge
      3. Technical specifications such as measurement and certification methods
      4. Parameters, measurement range and sample flow rate analyzer
      5. Network system and data interface system (DIS) communication
      6. Calibration of parameters and results
      7. Supplementary data for quality control and quality assurance.

The administrative data will be validated by the authority and if there are no problems, a certificate of validation will be issued. The technical data is then subjected to further “Verification” by the authorities.

After passing the verification, “Connection test” of the final step is conducted, and if the data is transferred to the authority’s system without any problems, it is certified to have passed the test and an approval certificate is issued. The approval certificate is valid for three years and can be extended. However, in the event that the CEMS is replaced, a new approval certificate is required.
