Team Finland Workshop - Smart Energy, Indonesia

Welcome to

Team Finland Workshop - Smart Energy, Indonesia

The program includes a virtual workshop followed by 1:1 meetings.

Indonesian citizens produce 175,000 tons of solid waste per day - equivalent of 66.5 million tons last year, according to the Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forestry. Waste to Energy was included to the National Strategic Program in 2018, and therefore, Indonesia’s Presidential Decree pushes the construction of new waste to energy facilities across the country, valuing up to EUR 1.5 billion in total.

Together with Smart Energy Finland and Bio-Circular Economy Program, Business Finland is organizing a virtual workshop on November 24, 2020 at 08:00 – 11:30 (Finnish time) to boost cooperation between Finnish companies and Indonesian authorities as well as local partners. The event is tailored for companies that work in the field of Municipal Solid Waste Management (including Plastics), Waste to Energy (W2E) or Landfill Gas.

In addition to the workshop, 1:1 meetings are organized between the participants to facilitate more direct discussions.
