JAKARTA - Indonesia in the midst of modernization of technology has yet to have a sufficient amount of waste management. This makes four State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN/SOEs) Companies in the field Mining Industry which are ANTAM, Bukit Asam, Inalum, PT Timah and Pertamina Patra Niaga held a waste management synergies.

This Synergy is realised through the signing of cooperation agreements in the framework of an integrated waste management business activities at the Office Building of Ministry of State-Owned-Enterprises, Tuesday (02/21/2017). This is an important step to managing waste in order to have a useful added value.

"The signing of this collaboration synergy is deliberately done so there will be no longer competition between State-Owned-Enterprises companies, but with all the capabilities of each company can come together to manage something of value-added," said Fajar Harry Sampurno, Deputy Mining, Strategic Industry and media of the the Ministry of BUMN/SOEs, as reported from bumn.go.id (22/2/2017).

Related to the waste management, there is a state-owned waste management in almost every country, ideally, five is enough, but in Indonesia there is only one in Java and there are a chance to create another one in East Java. The synergy is certainly very useful in carrying out waste management activities and simplify the coordination with the Ministry of Environment.

Fajar Harry Sampurno also congratulated on the achievement of the synergy by saying, "Congratulations to Antam, Bukit Asam, Inalum, Timah, and Pertamina Patra Niaga, this is the achievement of one of the pillars of the development of State-Owned Enterprises, which is downstream and it increase local content that has been laid out in the BUMN/SOEs roadmap. I expect all BUMN/SOEs Mining Industry may see this as a responsibility and new opportunities."
