Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan believes waste-to-energy can resolve waste problem in the country.

"Waste-to-energy is very helpful," said Luhut during the opening ceremony of the Indonesia Marine Plastic Debris Summit in Jakarta on Wednesday (11/2).

He mentioned that Solo has 7.5 MW waste-to-energy power plant, while Semarang has 1.5 MW power plant.

"Solo turns 1,000 tonnes of waste into energy every day," he continued.

He added that larger cities will also develop waste-to-energy. Jakarta and Surabaya will operate waste-to-energy power plants in the near future.

"It is important for future generation," he concluded.
