Main projects - UNIDO - Indonesia

Supply of services for extended inventory of PCB electrical equipment in Indonesia. The project is organized by United Nations for Industrial Development Organisation – UNIDO in collaboration with Minstry for Environment from Republic of Indonesia as national partner.

The project is in progress starting with 01.07.2015.

The activity covers all 6 provinces in Java island and aims the following activities:
  • Elaboration of a detailed work schedule;
  • Training of personnel dealing with this project. Training includes conforming methods for sampling, analysis of inventory and data;
  • Identification of potential industries/entities from Indonesia, using PCB contaminated transformers in their activity and development of of a data base;
  • Organization of meetings, briefings, attendance to seminars aiming the awareness of the owners of potential PCB contaminated electrical equipment, for project scope and danger of PCBs;
  • Elaboration – together with PCB equipment owners – of safety procedures on sampling (including procedures on turning off, earthing and turning on the transformers from which samples are taken);
  • Elaboration of methodology for PCB contaminated electrical equipment inventory and labelling;
  • Based on above mentioned, elaboration and putting into practice of a preliminary sampling plan for potential PCB contamination, covering at least 3000 samples to be taken in 6 provinces of Java;
  • Elaboration of data base configuration similar to PCB inventory format of UNEP, adapted to country specific situation;
  • As per data base, elaboration of Geographic Information System (GIS) showing geographical distribution, number and waste and PCB contaminated equipment concentration;
  • Sampling from potential PCB contaminated equipment from selected locations/provinces in Indonesia (as per proposed method and sampling plan) and testing with specific laboratory devices;
  • Updating the inventory of contaminated equipment, including equipment with PCB concentrations <50 ppm;
  • After making the data base, preparation of statistical result analysis;
  • Elaboration of monthly reports (in English and Indonesian) on inventory progress;
  • Elaboration of final report on inventory in compliance with the requirements of Stockholm Convention on POPs.

Final report shall be the basis of a Management Plan for PCB contaminated equipment in Indonesia.
