The series of Technology for Indonesia activities in 2024 in the form of camps and implementation will be held again this year starting from Monday, May 13 to May 20 2024. Located at the Sahid Hotel, Surabaya. The theme raised in this year's TFI activities is related to the environment. This TFI activity was attended by a total of 62 participants from 33 KSE partner state universities who are interested in innovation in the environmental sector. This activity is routinely carried out every year to provide a platform for KSE scholarship recipients who are interested in developing or creating innovation.

The TFI participants, who are often called JAWARA, put together the tools and products they had previously proposed for 7 days in a row. In total there are 17 innovations developed by these JAWS, including:

1.      Pyrolysis – Converting plastic waste into fuel oil (BBM).

2.     Trashtastic – Converts organic waste into electrical fuel.

3.     Automatic Organic Waste Shredder - A machine designed to grind organic waste automatically.

4.     Automatic Waste Shredding and Sorting Equipment - A machine designed to sort types of waste and chop them automatically.

5.     3D Printer Filament – ​​Plastic waste is converted into filament for 3D printer basic materials.

6.     Durian Skin Waste Turns into Plastic - Durian skin is processed into plastic.

7.     Algae Air Filter – Air filtration using Algae.

8.     Eggshell Adsorbent - Eggshell waste is processed into an adsorbent and placed in the exhaust of motor vehicles.

9.     Automatic Paper Shredder – A tool that combines several machines for automatic processing of waste paper.

10.   KNOOR – Spray made from used cooking oil to prevent corrosion.

11.    Smart Garbage – Smart trash can with sensors and sound.

12.   SWITCH and EGSYS – Applications for buying and selling inorganic waste.

13.   Water Filtration – Tools for filtering water using IoT technology and monitoring tools.

14.   Hydram Pump – Energy-free water pump.

15.   Alternative Animal Feed – Making feed for fish, ducks and other animals using ingredients.

16.   ITICK - IoT (Internet of Things) technology and smart sensors to automatically monitor and control animal feed fermentation conditions.

17.   Frequency Sound Generator - Controls the growth and development of Green Fly (Lucilia Sericata) larvae using musical frequencies.

Starting on the first day, the participants held a symbolic opening by being opened directly by Mr. Hengky Poerwowidagdo – Chief Operating Officer of KSE. After completing the opening, Mr. Hengky Poerwowidagdo then continued with coaching to all JAWARA participants. This coaching contains information about each individual's dreams. Participants were invited to tell what their dreams were, followed by a discussion regarding the obstacles that arose in the process of achieving these dreams.


In the evening, the JAWARA presented the results that had been mutually agreed upon for the innovations that would be created by each group. At the same time, the TFI committee was also gathered to take part in the discussion, especially the logistics team which was tasked with providing all the necessities needed by each team.

 Furthermore, for 5 consecutive days the participants prepared each of the innovations they created, during these 5 days continuous improvements were made to create innovations that could be used. Even though there were many failures during the refinement process, the participants managed to overcome these problems well. Excellent collaboration between the committee and participants was one of the keys to the success of this activity.


On Tuesday, May 14 2024, TFI participants also received knowledge from one of the donors, namely PT Samuel Aset Management, which was delivered by Mr. Budi Budar. He delivered material regarding technological innovation in the livestock sector. Previously, Mr. Adrian Karim, one of the representatives from PT Samuel Aset Management, also gave an introduction to the TFI participants.

Every day, in the evening, the participants also conduct FGDs regarding progress and obstacles encountered in the field each day, including what will be implemented the next day so that obstacles that occur that day can be minimized. Each progress FGD was led directly by the facilitator, namely Dr. Nurhadi Siswantoro, ST., MT and Nourma Al Viandari, S.P. The two facilitators are alumni from KSE who are currently involved in the technology field.



Arriving on Saturday, May 18 2024, the JAWARA implemented their respective tools at the designated location. One of them is the implementation of pyrolysis innovation (plastic waste into fuel) which takes place at Kenjeran Beach. This implementation was carried out by testing using boat engines from fishermen on the beach. The results obtained are quite encouraging because the oil produced can be used to replace diesel fuel in boat engines.


The closing of the 2024 TFI Camp & Implementation activities was held on Sunday, May 19 2024. The closing ceremony was held at the Keputih Village Office together with the Keputih Village Head and attended by the Keputih community. Thanks were conveyed by Mr. Wing Sjahendra as the person in charge of the 2024 TFI Camp & Implementation program. He expressed his gratitude to all parties, especially the Keputih Subdistrict officials who had given permission to the TFI participants to carry out equipment repair trials in the subdistrict area. Not only Mr. Wing delivered his speech, on this occasion the Head of the Keputih Village also delivered his speech, Mr. Fajar Febriansyah SH, MH expressed his gratitude for having been given the opportunity to take advantage of the results of the really cool innovations of his fellow students, in the future he I hope it can be put to good use by the local community.


After the ceremony of handing over the innovative tools, the activity continued with a direct inspection of the equipment exhibition location by the sub-district officials and also the community who were present. On this occasion, the TFI participants explained in detail what innovations they had created and how to operate them along with the benefits that could be enjoyed by the community. This aims to make it easier for the community when the tools have been distributed to sub-districts and used by the community.
