PT TIMAH Tbk is committed to reduce the negative impact of greenhouse effect and the damage to ozone layer as a result of various emissions. Such as CO2, Ozone Depleting Substance (BPO), and other emissions. Greenhouse Gas Emission (GRK) has become a serious problem for the world. Thefore, as a mining Company that is committed to the preservations of nature and environment, PT TIMAH Tbk strives to reduce the impacts trough a series of activities and innovations. [GRI 103-1, GRI 302-2]
The main source of emission from PT TIMAH Tbk’s operational activities are the utilization of mining equipment that uses non-renewable fossil fuel, such as diesel fuel and benzine, as well as the installation of diesel fuel power plant. To reduce emission to the air, PT TIMAH Tbk continuously strives to reduce the production greenhouse gas emission. One of the efforts taken is by conducting efficiency of energy usage in each work units and in all lines of the Company’s activities.
Through the efficiency program, in 2020, PT TIMAH Tbk has succeeded to save or reduce energy usage by 657,316 GigaJoule, which was 1,916,394 in 2019 into 1,487,957 in 2020. As for the efforts that are carried out are the following: [GRI 103-3, GRI 302-4]
1. Replacing lighting tols with LED lamps
2. Replacing non-inverter AC with inverter AC
3. Replacing CRT computer monitor with LCD monitor
4. Replacing the Company’ operational vehicles including forklift periodically in every 5 years
5. Energy saving program, by turning off the electricity when the office is no operating.
Office, Houses, and Factory:
• Diverting electricity energy from genset to PLN
Metallurgy Unit Factory:
1. Smelting recovery system (smelting of tin slag to produce tin dust with a grade of more than 60% Sn) by utilizing fuming furnace technology.
2. Increasing smelting recovery by 1.4% through the utilization of fuming furnace technology, from 97.6 to 99%.
3. Replacing fuels for fuming furnace with a more efficient, economic, and environmentally-friendly fuels, which is pulverized coal, previously the stationary reverberatory furnace uses marine oil fuel.
