The Story Behind my Traveling to Europe

August. Busy time for my activities. As a student that lived in the village, it should be rather strange even if your village has important event at night but you have a class in the morning. Especially if you live in java culture, so many events from your neighbour will invite you. This story began on April. There was the day when I enjoyed the student atmosphere.

I enrolled as a master student in crop estate technology faculty agriculture technology Gadjah Mada University. I have entered the second semester in there. Therefore there was time for preparing thesis plan. As interesting as I study, I would like to study essential oil more. So I visited Prof. Hardjono Sastro Hamidjojo, my lecturer in bachelor last time. He is someone expert in the essential oil. I want to learn synthesis from compounds of citronella oil, to make synthesised compounds that be a higher value to sell.

Prof. Hardjono Sastrohamidjojo

Yes, I have got permission from him. But, unfortunately, the project required be paid by myself. I imagined it might be so expensive. And then where was the money comes from?

My Feeling about Chalmers and Sweden

My name is Ahmad Safarudin. I am a master student at Crop Estate Technology Faculty Agriculture Technology,Gadjah Mada University, Indonesia. I enrolled as an exchange student in Autumn 2015 period doing my thesis work on biotechnology projects. I really interest in developing the waste materials to renewable energy. Then, it was that I have done the research in Chalmers, made biogas from waste.

I worked my lab work at the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering of Chalmers through Linnaeus Palme program. I did the lab work about developing lignocelluloses waste to produce biogas. I don’t take the wrong option choosing Chalmers as the place to work my thesis. The place was a comfortable area for doing my lab work. I have the very kind supervisor and people in this department was so friendly. It is easy to obtain chemicals and use lab instruments who I can not get in Indonesia as easy as in Chalmers. The department provided me superb facilities that I need to do my thesis work.

Perasaan

Perasaan adalah makhluk rumit yang berada dalam jiwa yang kelaparan oleh penantian. Mungkin kita tidak memerlukan perasaan. Dari perasaan yang terhubung ke perasaan lainnya jiwa-jiwa merasakan sakit, tersesat. Terperosok kedalam lantunan fatamorgana. Seakan perasaan berkata kepada perasaan yang lainnya,” Ahirnya aku menemukanmu wahai cahaya, keindahan yang sejati.” Namun ternyata, perasaan menyulutkan api-api keinginan, api-api ke-egoan. Hingga api tumbuh besar dan besar. Ahirnya ego bertahta, menyingkirkan kepasrahan dalam lubuk jiwa.

Menakar Urgensi Realisasi PLTN

Baru-baru ini media elektronik mulai mengangkat diskursus energi sebagai respon acara diskusi “Mengenal Lebih Dekat Iptek Nuklir” di Bogor di Favehotel, Bogor, Sabtu 13 September 2014. Dalam diskusi tersebut Kepala Badan Tenaga Nuklir Nasional (Batan) menyinggung rencana kenaikan harga bahan bakar minyak (BBM) yang akan dilakukan di masa pemerintahan Jokowi. Ia mempertanyakan ketidak jelasan sikap pemerintah terkait kebijakan mempertahankan subsidi BBM sampai saat ini.
 
Padahal alokasi subsidi BBM yang sekitar Rp300 triliun itu dapat digunakan untuk membangun enam PLTN komersial. Dari pernyataan Kepala Batan Djarot Sulistio Wisnubroto tersebut
