      PT PLN (Persero) has succeeded in utilizing waste from burning coal from a steam power plant (PLTU) or known as fly ash & bottom ash (FABA) into material for the construction of a 10.04 km long road in Sulawesi.

      To build the 10.04 km road, PLN utilized a total of 13,369 tons of FABA from several PLTUs across Sulawesi, such as PLTU Amurang, PLTU Anggrek, PLTU Nii Tanasa, PLTU Barru and PLTU Punagaya.

      General Manager of PLN Sulawesi Generation and Distribution Main Unit, Jarot Setyawan explained, with the right mixture, the quality of roads from FABA can be compared with the quality of conventional roads in general.

      "The use of FABA is an innovation carried out by PLN. Roads with FABA material are tested, not inferior to materials in general," he said.

      Until now, PLN UIKL Sulawesi has utilized 51,371 tons of FABA. Apart from being used as a road material, FABA has been widely used for the construction of facilities and infrastructure in the form of adobe bricks and paving blocks, backfilling media and road paving material.

      Furthermore, roads that have utilized FABA include roads in Tenga and Tawang Villages in South Minahasa, concrete roads in Toli Toli Village, access roads for PLTU Tello, paving blocks on roads in Punagaya Village, and road and field paving at the Tomohon International Flower Festival. .

      Jarot added that FABA could be widely used by the public, SMEs and agencies following the categorization of FABA as waste that does not contain hazardous and toxic materials (B3). PLN opens opportunities for people who want to utilize FABA to become high-value products, including as a mixture in the construction and infrastructure industries.

      "PLN is open to people who want to take part in utilizing this FABA. FABA itself is not B3 waste, so it can be processed and provides many benefits," he concluded.
