Balikpapan City has the vision to be a leading, comfortable, and sustainable city in Indonesia. This vision is also associated with the city’s aspirations to pursue low emission development as an effort to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through several priority sectors, one of which is the waste management sector. The city’s sanitary landfill, locally named Tempat Pembuangan Akhir (TPA) Manggar, has integrated gas networking pipelines and wastewater treatment units that allow them to capture methane gas released in the landfill and utilize this as an alternative energy resource for nearby communities. To measure and estimate the emissions reduction, an LFG Recovery Methodology was implemented. This methodology is envisioned to support the implementation of the Measurement, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) Framework of Indonesia’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) target by offering local governments a methodology that will allow them to quantify their GHG emissions reduction contribution.
