Abstract

This study aimed to provide a basis for future policy making in supporting the waste to energy from tofu in Indonesia. The policy studied was the credit program scheme for tofu industry. The financial feasibility, as well as cost and benefit analysis, were conducted to meet the objectives. Tofu industries are mostly small-sized industry which supports people with middle-to-low incomes. On the other hand, tofu industry also contributes significant amounts of emissions. Thus this calls for government intervention to encourage tofu industries to convert their wastes to energy. The result of the study shows that the developments of biogas reactors are feasible for size 84 m3 and 94 m3. The study also found that for both sizes, the benefits are higher than the costs.
