Abstract

Recent The development of power generation capacity is directed to meet the load growth, and in certain areas it is preferred to meet the shortage of electricity supply (RUPTL, 2017). The planned addition of combined generating capacity throughout Indonesia such as coal-fired power plants (CFPP) will dominate the type of power plant to be built, reaching 31.9 GW or 53.0% in the year 2017 to 2026, and by 2019 the addition of very high-power plants reaches 18.7GW. This is in line with the 35,000MW program targeted for completion in 2019. Coal demand continues to increase every year, until the year 2026 reached 152.8 million tons per year. The CFPP operation produce solid waste as Fly Ash and Bottom Ash (FABA) or generally named by Coal Combustion Products (CCPs). Formation of the CCPs in general is 3-5% of total coal used, then will required wide land for the placement of FABA product if it cannot be utilized. Characteristics of the CCPs could substitute cement for infrastructure. The utilization of the CCPs in Indonesia still very small amount only 0,47%. Comparative method applied to analyze the regulation in Indonesia with other countries in regulate the CCPs from CFPP. Regulation for CCPs as hazardous waste make some difficulties in utilize the CCPs for construction material. In the other side Indonesia need to build infrastructure with low cost. Through review regulation on determination of FABA from CFPP as hazardous waste could be an effort to increase the utilization of FABA in Indonesia.
