The Indonesian Domestic Biogas Programme (IDBP) is in Indonesia better known as the BIRU programme; an acronym of Biogas Rumah, or ‘biogas for the home’. BIRU aims to promote the use of biodigesters as a local, sustainable, energy source by developing the market while working towards the development of a commercial, market-oriented sector, leading to the creation of jobs
The Indonesian Domestic Biogas Programme (IDBP) or BIRU is a program that seeks to disseminate renewable energy programs through the use of biogas reactors as an energy source and the use of bio-slurry (biogas pulp) as a natural fertilizer.
Starting in May 2009 to December 2019, it has built 24,769 biogas reactors in 13 provinces in Indonesia, namely Lampung, West Java, DKI Jakarta, Banten, Central Java, DI Yogyakarta, East Java, Central Kalimantan, South Sulawesi, Central Sulawesi, Bali, West Nusa Tenggara and East Nusa Tenggara (Sumba).
Waste processing becomes a blessing is the motto of the BIRU program which projects the processing of organic waste from livestock manure and kitchen waste to be processed into energy so that it can meet household cooking needs every day.
