May 30, 2007

Commitment to the environment

PT. South Pacific Viscose, the biggest Austrian investment in Indonesia which currently produces 150.000 tons of viscose fibers per annum, shows responsibility in environmental and global warming issues.

The existing waste water treatment plant was expanded with a Biological Treatment Facility with a treatment capacity of 24.000 qqm per day at a cost of 2 million US Dollars. Additionally a new Waste Gas Treatment Plant, the first of its kind in Asia, was built to recover gases (CS2 carbon disulphide) from spinning, using vapor phase adsorption and desorption, a technology using know-how from South Pacific Viscose´s Austrian parent company Lenzing. The capacity of the plant is 8.000 tons per annum of pure CS2. The investment for the Waste Gas Treatment Plant was 12 million US Dollars. 

The new plants were inaugurated in SPV´s Purwakarta factory on May 25th 2007 in the presence of State Minister for Environment, Ir. Rachmat Nadi Witoelar, West Java Governor Drs. Danny Setiawan, Director General of Metal, Machinery, Textile and Miscellaneous Industries of the Department of Industry, Ansar Bukhari, and Austria´s Ambassador to Indonesia, Dr. Klaus Wölfer.
