FajarPaper aims to minimize its impact on the environment. Almost all of our raw material needs are met through recycled fiber, which in turn avoid the destruction of natural forest to sustain the pulp requirements as raw material. FajarPaper’s mills use daily paper deposits brought by local paper collectors, recycled paper from customers, and imported recyclable material.
FajarPaper’s approach to manufacturing is designed to be sustainable. Our 70 megawatt power plants deliver efficient, low-cost energy by burning natural gas and a quantity of solid waste by-product recycled resulting in cleaner emissions. FajarPaper uses a water treatment system with a capacity of 68,000 m3/day, in compliance with the environmental regulations. The water treatment system increases manufacturing efficiency by reducing the quantity of water, required for papermaking, and also reduces the levels of biological efficient discharged.
Not only the need for landfills is eliminated through the incineration process, but also the steam generated which is diverted to be used in the paper making process. The steam is used in the production of the finished paper, and hence contributes to reducing energy costs. The first incinerator was procured and installed through a grant under a joint program between the Indonesian Industrial and Trade Ministry and the Japanese government via NEDO (New Energy Technology Development Organization). Installation was completed in 2001 with an annual total burning capacity of 95 bone-dry tons per day. The construction of the second incinerator was completed in 2011, with a bigger capacity, of around 150 bone-dry tons per day, in order to handle sludge and solid waste from the fifth paper machine, PM5 which was completed at the end of 2010.
Fajar Paper’s business practices are designed to be ethically and environmentally responsible: achieving long-term, sustainable growth to meet the needs of a growing consumer population without compromising future resources.
FajarPaper managed to acquire the international standard of environmental management within ISO 14001 certification in 2010, and occupational health and safety management system within OHSAS 18001 certification in 2011.
