Jakarta, June 9, 2022 - PT Aneka Tambang Tbk (ANTAM; IDX: ANTM; ASX: ATM) member of Mining Industry Indonesia (MIND ID) – the State-Owned Enterprise Holding of the Mining Industry Indonesia, announced that the Company is always committed to reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in line with the Government's commitment in achieving Net Zero Emissions by 2060. ANTAM has made several efforts to meet GHG emission reduction targets, among others, by maximizing new and renewable energy in the Company's operational areas.
ANTAM's Director of Operations and Production, Dewa Wirantaya, said:
“In order to support the reduction of GHG emissions, ANTAM has taken the initiative and innovation, among others, by installing emission control systems in the Ferronickel Plant at Pomalaa. ANTAM is also preparing a decarbonization roadmap with MIND ID and is starting to implement various decarbonization efforts in each business unit. Recently, We also signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with PT PLN (Persero) for electricity supply in the Ferronickel Plant at Pomalaa, Southeast Sulawesi, by using New Renewable Energy (NRE) based power plant. We hope that through the use of NRE, in the future, it will increase the reduction of GHG emissions produced by the Company”.
ANTAM and PLN signed the MoU on Electricity Supply for the Southeast Sulawesi Ferronickel Plant on Friday, June 3, 2022. Through this signing, the two companies agreed to 150 MVA of electricity supply. With the supply of electricity to the three lines of the Ferronickel Plant from the PLN grid, it is hoped that the carbon gas emissions will be reduced by more than 50%.
Other efforts made by ANTAM to reduce GHG emissions include the use of B30 fuel for mining operational vehicles, the use of solar panels for lighting facilities at the mine roads in business units, and the replacement of energy from Marine Fuel Oil to Dual Fuel, that will be able to reduce GHG emissions in nickel ore processing and ferronickel production.
The Company also strives to apply appropriate and environmentally friendly technology to reduce energy consumption and implement a regular monitoring and evaluation system by energy managers and energy auditors certified by the National Professional Certification Agency to assist the energy efficiency and monitoring process. Through the use of green energy and the efforts to reduce GHG emissions, it is hoped that it will help ANTAM manage the environment better for the sustainability of the Company.
