Abstract

One example of marginal land is land mined and sandy soil. This land tends to be difficult to overgrow vegetation. Environment 19 Mile is part of the ModADA or Ajkwa watershed that has been modified as a PTFI tailing deposition area. The effect of high natural erosion and transport of mineral soils during the tailings drainage process causes soil structure in ModADA, especially in the double dike area to form faster, and allow natural vegetation. Characteristics of succession in the area were observed by vegetation profiles. The combination of making transects and sampling plots was used as a method for observing characteristic vegetation in the double dike area. The results showed that based on differences in vegetation height and canopy area there were 3 layers of vegetation, namely A, B, and C in the Double levees with flooded or tend to dry area. In the flooded area, Paraserianthes afalcataria and Timonius timon were dominated by an average plant height of 17.33 m; and layer B is dominated by Pandanus lauterbachii with an average plant height of 6.83m. In areas that tend to be dry, layer A species is dominated by Timonius Timon, Ficus armiti Miq, Glochidion macrocarpa, and Sterculia sp with an average plant height of 14.75 m; while layer B is dominated by Casuarina equisetifolia, Ficus armiti King, Ficus armiti Miq, Glochidion macrocarpa, Antiaris sp, Macaranga aleuroitoides, and Campnosperma brevi petiolata with an average plant height of 8.39 m. Layer C is in both types of soil occupied by species Phragmites karka. The vegetation profile shows that the area is an area with double dikes in the early stages of succession. This proves that this region is able to develop into natural revegetation of ModADA and accelerated through reclamation

Abstract

In meeting the needs of cement raw materials of limestone, PT Semen Baturaja (Persero) Tbk do its own mining activities. Mining activities will have an impact on the surrounding environment. Positive impacts arising from mining activities such as increasing the income of the surrounding community, opening jobs, and so forth. Meanwhile, the negative impacts caused are the change in the natural order and the color of the earth, noise, air pollution, water quality degradation, and others. Changes in the natural order that will be generated after mining activities are completed, one of which is a mine hole (void). The climate in South Sumatra, this region is generally included in tropical regions. The geology of the Baturaja formation is generally included in the Palembang group, which has Tma, Qtk and Tmpm formations. Mining activities at the limestone quarry of PT. Semen Baturaja (Persero) Tbk., carried out in two ways, it was surface mining, and blasting activity. Freshwater fish aquaculture will be carried out to provide economic value and can be used as an indicator that the water contained in voids is not dangerous, and it’s still in a standard regulated by the government.

Abstract

In order to improve a community composting system, three scenarios have set based on the critical points of initial system from sensitivity analysis result of Life Cycle Assessment of community composting system of agricultural and agro industrial wastes composting. Sensitivity analysis of initial system revealed two critical points that used as consideration on setting of improvement system scenarios. On initial system, composting process contributed the highest impact potency on acidification, eutrophication, global warming, and photochemical oxidation, while distribution was responsible for the highest impact on human toxicity potential. By comparison of initial composting system with three improvement scenarios, it found that the third improvement scenario (SC3) was the best scenario that recommended to be implemented. SC3 promoted application of compost blanket for gases emission reduction of compost pile, and substitution diesel fuel of pick-up with CNG fuel for transportation emission reduction. This scenario reduced impact of initial composting system by 29% with the highest impact reduction was on global warming potential by 54%.
