“.. Nuclear Power Revealed

So let me tell you what else they did. They just showed you what's wrong with nuclear power. "Safe to the maximum," they said. "Our devices are strong and cannot fail." But they did. They are no match for Gaia.

It seems that for more than 20 years, every single time we sit in the chair and speak of electric power, we tell you that hundreds of thousands of tons of push/pull energy on a regular schedule is available to you. It is moon-driven, forever. It can make all of the electricity for all of the cities on your planet, no matter how much you use. There's no environmental impact at all. Use the power of the tides, the oceans, the waves in clever ways. Use them in a bigger way than any designer has ever put together yet, to power your cities. The largest cities on your planet are on the coasts, and that's where the power source is. Hydro is the answer. It's not dangerous. You've ignored it because it seems harder to engineer and it's not in a controlled environment. Yet, you've chosen to build one of the most complex and dangerous steam engines on Earth - nuclear power.

We also have indicated that all you have to do is dig down deep enough and the planet will give you heat. It's right below the surface, not too far away all the time. You'll have a Gaia steam engine that way, too. There's no danger at all and you don't have to dig that far. All you have to do is heat fluid, and there are some fluids that boil far faster than water. So we say it again and again. Maybe this will show you what's wrong with what you've been doing, and this will turn the attitudes of your science to create something so beautiful and so powerful for your grandchildren. Why do you think you were given the moon? Now you know.

This benevolent Universe gave you an astral body that allows the waters in your ocean to push and pull and push on the most regular schedule of anything you know of. Yet there you sit enjoying just looking at it instead of using it. It could be enormous, free energy forever, ready to be converted when you design the methods of capturing it. It's time. …”

City Administration to Turn Trash Into Power at Three New Facilities

Jakarta Globe, Dofa Fasila | August 11, 2011

The Jakarta administration is planning to build three treatment centers that will use waste to generate energy, Governor Fauzi Bowo said on Wednesday.

“What we want is to turn waste to energy, and this process has already begun,” Fauzi said.

The Cakung Cilincing intermediate treatment facility in North Jakarta, which began operating on Aug. 1., uses mechanical and biological technology to recycle inorganic waste and to ferment organic waste to produce gas that can be used as fuel. After processing, the waste is then sent to a landfill.

The treatment center will be able to process 400 tons of waste daily until the end of the year and 600 tons daily from January. It will reach its full capacity of 1,300 tons in July next year, he said.

When running at full capacity, the Cakung Cilincing ITF will be able to produce 4.95 megawatts of electricity, or 445,669 million metric British thermal units of gas fuel.

Fauzi said that the two other intermediate treatment facilities, would be built in Sunter and Marunda, both in North Jakarta, before the end of the year.

The existing Sunter waste facility, which sits on five hectares of land, will be upgraded into an ITF, Fauzi said.

“We are going to enhance the technology at the Sunter processing station into an ITF,” Fauzi said. “The city sanitation office will cooperate with private sector companies interested in investing.”

The Sunter ITF, Fauzi said, would use technology based on an incinerator that would be capable of reducing the volume of waste by 90 percent, producing a large amount of electricity and significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Eko Bharuna, head of the Jakarta Sanitation Office, said the Sunter project would be tendered in September.

“We are involving the private sector under a build, own, operate and transfer arrangement,” Eko said. “We have chosen this option so as not to burden the regional budget.”

“Besides building the various intermediate waste processing facilities that are capable of handling large amounts of waste, the city administration will also develop reuse, reduce, and recycle centers [Sentra 3R] in Jakarta’s five municipalities,” Fauzi said.

“In the future, all regional developers will have to build their own waste processing facilities,” he added.

He said that several developers, including Pantai Indah Kapuk, had already agreed to build 3R centers in their estates. Pantai Kapuk Indah’s 3R center would use integrated dry anaerobic digestion and composting technology and would be built in cooperation with a private investor and the Tsu Chi Buddhist Foundation, he said.

“The waste at PIK will be processed into electricity and compost,” Fauzi said. “The main difference with the ITF is that the 3R center will have a much smaller capacity, of around 250 tons.”

Another 3R center planned for Pesanggrahan, South Jakarta, will be built with the assistance of the Public Works Office’s environmental sanitation unit, he said.

Fauzi added that the city administration would not go ahead with a plan to build an integrated waste processing plant in Ciangir, in Legok district, Tangerang. The decision came after Tangerang authorities zoned the Ciangir area for residential purposes.

The city had purchased an area of 96 hectares in Ciangir and an environmental impact study was conducted in 1999.

Fauzi said that while the Tangerang administration had proposed a land swap, suggesting an area in Jatiwangi, closer to Jakarta, the city authorities preferred to develop the Ciangir land into residential estate in line with the new zoning requirements.

With the Ciangir ITF center scrapped, he said, the city would now have to rely on the three planned ITFs.

“With these three ITFs and the Bantar Gebang landfill, Jakarta’s waste problem will be solved for the next decade, as their cumulative processing capacity will be more than 8,000 tons per day,” he said.

Operations Begin for New Bali Plant To Purify Sewage Into Usable Water

Jakarta Globe, Made Arya Kencana, August 11, 2011

Denpasar. Bali officially began operations at a water purification facility on Wednesday that turns treated sewage into clean, usable water.

“The Balinese people are worried about predictions that the island will suffer from a water crisis in 2015,” provincial regional secretary Made Jendra said at the plant’s opening. “This, at least, will be alleviated by the operation of this facility.”

Jendra said the treatment plant, which was a joint project of the central government, Denpasar administration, Badung district government and Japan International Cooperation Agency, would be able to produce 9,000 cubic meters of clean water every day, or more than 100 liters per second.

While that figure was far from the estimated 1,500 liters per second needed to avert a water crisis in 2015, he said clean water production would hopefully grow further with the completion of a sewage network project.

Goro Yasuda, director for overseas projects at Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transportation and Tourism, said Bali would face a water crisis by 2015 because “the need for clean water vastly exceeds the capacity of the regional water company.”

Dewa Punia Asa, head of Bali’s public works office, said that so far only 8,647 households in Denpasar and Badung districts were linked to the first phase of the Denpasar Sewage Development Project. Those households are estimated to produce about 22,000 cubic meters of liquid waste a day.

A second phase, expected to be completed in 2014, is targeting 7,200 new connections, mostly hotels and restaurants in the tourist areas of Sanur, Kuta, Legian and Seminyak.

Tjok Bagus Budiana, who heads the province’s sewage management service, said the facility was designed to process as much as 51,000 cubic meters of liquid waste per day. It is built on a 17.5 hectare plot, 2.5 hectares of which is reserved for reservoirs to hold liquid waste.

He said households had to pay a monthly fee of Rp 15,000 to Rp 25,000 ($1.75 to $2.90) to be connected to the network. The fee, he added, would be higher for participating businesses.

Dutchman in Kenya: drilling against drought

RNW, 6 August 2011, by Rob van Dijk

To combat Kenya’s drought and famine, a Dutch resident wants to drill new wells, down to 100 metres, four to ten times deeper than most existing ones. “Most shallow wells have dried up. We could start drilling in two or three months.”

Wim van den Burg lives in southeast Kenya, close to the Somali border. In October and November, the “little rainy season”, there was no rain at all, the Dutchman recounts. “If we didn’t get any rain in the ‘big rainy season’ in November, I realised, we’d be in big trouble. And we are.”

No drinking water

There were a few showers in July. By then most of the corn had been scorched. A few stalks yielded shrivelled oars, far too little to feed all the hungry mouths. Worse still, many wells dried up, leaving people with nothing to drink.

Things are bound to get worse, Van den Burg fears, not just in Kenya, but across East Africa. “The next rainy season, the little one, doesn’t begin until October. Even if we get rain then, people won’t be able to harvest their crops until two or three months later.”

Deep down

Van den Burg has been working in Kenya since 1989. “We’ve dug 50 or 60 wells, each 10 to 25 metres deep. Most of them are still working. But in the remote areas the wells are dry.”

To find water, you need to drill further down, he explains. But to get to some 100 metres down you need a special drill, which costs around 60,000 euros. “Such drills also allow you to test the quality of the water, so you know if it’s worth building a well.”

Last weekend he began a drive to raise the money. Once he gets the drill, thousands of starving, thirsty people will again be able to drink and feed themselves.
