PT Banjarsari Pribumi (BP) holds a coal mining business license in Lahat Regency, South Sumatra, with a land area of 519.84 hectares. With optimal access via SLR road, BP’s area provides infrastructure supporting coal transportation and environmental sustainability.
Coal Resources and Environmental Commitment
Based on the JORC Report 2019, BP has coal resources of 36.2 million tons, coal reserves of 27.6 million tons, with a calorific value ranging from 3,800 to 4,500 kcal/kg (GAR). BP’s commitment extends beyond environmentally friendly coal production to waste management.
Collaboration with TPS 3R Masda Jaya: Enhancing Productivity and Sustainability
PT Banjarsari Pribumi has chosen TPS 3R Masda Jaya as a partner to manage its waste, even providing a three-phase electrical installation facility to support productivity at TPS 3R.
Seriousness in Waste Management
Herdiansyah, Chairman of TPS 3R Masda Jaya, expressed PT Banjarsari Pribumi’s seriousness in domestic waste management. “For more than two years, we have been collaborating with PT Banjarsari Pribumi to manage domestic waste,” he said in today’s updated news on Saturday, January 20, 2024.
Joint Efforts to Reduce Waste
Herdiansyah also expressed gratitude for the trust given by PT Banjarsari Pribumi. “Hopefully, our efforts to reduce waste entering the landfill will soon be realized in line with the local government’s targets,” he added.
In an effort to optimize waste reduction, PT Banjarsari Pribumi and TPS 3R Masda Jaya have taken several strategic steps.
- Processing “Asoy” Plastic Waste
“Asoy” plastic waste will be compressed using a pressing machine at TPS 3R Masda Jaya, supported by machinery from PT Bukit Bara Alam. PT Banjarsari Pribumi also assists in the installation of a three-phase electrical supply to operate the machine.
- Maggot (BSF) Cultivation for Organic Waste Decomposition
The second step involves cultivating Maggot (BSF) as a method for organic waste decomposition at TPS 3R. The collaboration between PT Banjarsari Pribumi and TPS 3R Masda Jaya is a manifestation of their love for the environment.
“Thanks to PT Banjarsari Pribumi for trusting us to manage waste and helping us with the procurement of a three-phase electrical power supply,” he concluded.
With this initiative, PT Banjarsari Pribumi and TPS 3R Masda Jaya are not only creating sustainability in the coal industry but also making a positive contribution to the environment.
Discussing Waste Management
In addressing global waste-related issues, it is important to delve deeper into the steps taken by PT Banjarsari Pribumi and TPS 3R Masda Jaya to manage waste effectively.
Innovation in Plastic Waste Processing
The first step in reducing the impact of plastic waste is through effective processing. TPS 3R Masda Jaya has taken the initiative by using a pressing machine to compact “Asoy” plastic waste. This machine, provided by PT Bukit Bara Alam, not only helps reduce the volume of plastic waste but also creates more easily recyclable materials.
PT Banjarsari Pribumi, as an environmentally conscious partner, not only donated the pressing machine but also assisted in the installation of a three-phase electrical supply to operate the machine. With this collaboration, they are not only reducing plastic waste but also using more efficient electrical energy.
Maggot (BSF) Cultivation: Organic Solution for Waste
The next step involves cultivating Maggot (BSF) as an organic method for decomposing organic waste. PT Banjarsari Pribumi and TPS 3R Masda Jaya are working together to implement this Maggot cultivation as an environmentally friendly alternative.
Maggot, as the larva of the Black Soldier Fly, plays a crucial role in decomposing organic waste. Through this collaboration, they are not only demonstrating responsibility toward the environment but also creating a natural recycling cycle.
Benefits of Collaboration: Sustainability and Community Support
The collaboration between PT Banjarsari Pribumi and TPS 3R Masda Jaya not only provides direct benefits to the environment but also has a positive impact on the sustainability of the industry and community support.
Sustainability of Environmentally Friendly Coal Industry
With a focus on environmentally friendly coal production, PT Banjarsari Pribumi has set high standards in the industry. Collaboration with TPS 3R Masda Jaya as a waste management partner is an additional step towards achieving sustainability.
Their efforts in reducing environmental impact through plastic waste processing and Maggot cultivation not only showcase corporate responsibility but also prove that the coal industry can contribute positively to the ecosystem.
Community Support for the Environment
This collaboration also creates awareness and community support for the environment. By involving the community in waste management efforts, PT Banjarsari Pribumi and TPS 3R Masda Jaya help shape a positive perception of the coal industry and make it an example of environmental sustainability.
Facing Future Challenges: Continued Collaboration for Sustainability
Despite achieving significant progress in waste management, PT Banjarsari Pribumi and TPS 3R Masda Jaya realize that future challenges require closer cooperation. They are committed to continuing to collaborate in finding new innovations and more effective strategies to reduce environmental impact.
By involving stakeholders, local governments, and the community, they hope to create broader positive changes in how the coal industry interacts with its surrounding environment.
With a strong collaboration between PT Banjarsari Pribumi (Titan Group) and TPS 3R Masda Jaya, the emphasis is not only on the sustainability of the coal industry but also on a positive contribution to the environment and the community. They prove that with strategic steps and awareness of environmental impact, any industry can become an agent of change for sustainability.
