“Asia Pacific Rayon (APR)’s operation is in line with the government’s agenda, namely prioritising the development of the textile industry to achieve Making Indonesia 4.0,” said Airlangga during 'Revitalizing Indonesia Textile Industry; Plantation to Fashion' event in Jakarta.
APR has commenced production and is on track to become one of the largest integrated viscose-rayon fibre manufacturers in the world, said director Basrie Kamba adding that they want to reiterate support for Indonesia’s ambition to strategically develop its textile industry to compete globally.
Established with an investment of more than $740 million, APR’s new Riau-based production facility has a 240,000 tonne capacity and has committed to export at least 50 per cent of its viscose fibre output, with the remainder targeted at domestic manufacturing.
Further, Kamba said that sustainable manufacturing is important because it creates market advantage for APR’s customers and helps to establish a world-class reputation for sustainably produced Indonesian viscose-rayon.
“We are committed to responsible production to ensure the highest performance in chemical management recovery systems, wastewater and air emissions treatment. Our production facility is powered by renewable biomass and we invest in technology to ensure maximum energy efficiency in our operations,” Kamba said.
APR’s supply is drawn from sustainably-managed plantations, with all of the dissolving pulp it consumes fully traceable to internationally certified plantations.
“We would like to congratulate APR for the start-up of their operations. This is a moment that we have all been waiting for,” said Dewanto, president director of PT Pamor Spinning Mills, a key APR customer.
Ben Poon, deputy business head of APR, emphasised that APR is a business enabler to help the textile value chain innovate and develop new products and find new market opportunities. (RR)
