Background

The Paiton-2 power station is operated by PT Jawa Power and consists of 2 x 660 MW units. It began construction in 1996 and began operating in 2000.[3]

Paiton-2 is part of the 4,945-MW Paiton coal-fired power complex, including the two-unit, 800-MW PLN Paiton plant, owned by PLN; the two-unit, 1,340-MW Paiton-1 plant, operated by PT Paiton Energy; the single-unit, 825-MW Paiton-3 plant, operated by PT Paiton Energy; and the single-unit, 660-MW PLN Paiton Baru plant, owned by PLN.

Environmental Impact

In May 2017 it was reported that the Paiton power complex produces the largest amount of Hazardous and Toxic B3 waste of any facility in East Java, 153 million tonnes a year, a figure that represents 80% of the annual total of 170 million tonnes for East Java.[4] B3 waste is defined by Government Regulation 19 of 1994 as "any waste containing dangerous and/or toxic material, which due to its characteristics and/or concentration and/or amount, either directly or indirectly, may damage and/or pollute the living environment and/or endanger human health."[5]
