The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources – Republic of Indonesia prioritized refusederived fuels (RDF) to decarbonize the electricity sector and at the same time to achieve renewable energy targets. Achieving this objective needs intensive dissemination of RDF technological application in society as well as to expand the off-taker potentials and create a business scheme between off-takers and operators in the temporary dump. Therefore, the International Climate Change Engagement Program from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) would be a great opportunity to facilitate knowledge transfer and information exchange between Australia and Indonesia. By increasing utilization of solid waste co-firing in coal-fired power plants, Indonesia could benefit from the DFAT program through technology learning on Australia’s emerging Carbon Capture, Use and Storage (CCUS). This interest is also aligned with Australia's Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources/CCUS's Hubs and Technologies Program, which aim to increase knowledge and capabilities as well as deploy CCUS at a large scale in Australia and beyond.
