This interest arose when the Acting Mayor of Bandung received a visit from the Regent of Banyumas, Achmad Husein at the Bandung City Hall, Wednesday 17 May 2023.

At the meeting, Achmad explained the success of waste management in his working area.

"Regarding waste processing, we use Gibrik Mini or automatic waste sorting machines," he said.

He revealed, this machine has a capacity of 0.5 tons per hour. The tool has an investment value of around Rp.75 million. Length 80 cm, width 55 cm.

"Using a 15hp delta electric panel. The price is IDR 75 million per unit," said Achmad.

He said why the Kang Pisman program owned by the City of Bandung should be supported by this tool, because this minimalist tool has sorting efficiency and does not require large areas of land.

In addition, continued Achmad, Gibrik Mini can improve the quality of recycling, optimize resource utilization as well as improve hygiene and health.

"The investment value is IDR 75 million per RW. As for the benefits, it can reduce the environmental impact on the transportation process, use waste at the local level and empower the local economy," he said.

Uniquely, this tool, continued Achmad, is able to sort organic and inorganic waste. According to the system, the tool is able to sort waste based on specific gravity, wind pressure to the shape of the waste.

"So the machine can sort it out on its own. We just have to put the garbage into the tool. It's enough to store it in a small area, this tool can work," he said.

Responding to this, Acting Mayor of Bandung, Ema Sumarna was interested in this sophisticated and simple tool.

"This tool is capable of reducing half a ton of waste per hour. So if it is implemented at several polling stations in the city of Bandung, waste management will get better," he said.

Ema added, although currently they still use conventional waste to be disposed of in the TPA, the Bandung City Government continues to make efforts to make waste management more optimal and complete at the source.

"This is really optimal, we make full use of it. Hopefully we will place it in 130 polling stations, but first look at the conditions of the places," said Ema.

Please note, Banyumas Regency has declared that it is a waste-free area.

"They declared a zero waste area, so we are interested. The point is that this must be sustainable so that waste management in the city of Bandung is more optimal," he said.(yan)**
