InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA - To positively deliver impacts for the environment, about 200 hectares areas – the former mining areas, parts of PT Simbiosis Karya Agroindustri (SISKA), the subsidiary of Buana Karya Bhakti Group, have been conjured to be useful green areas.

About 100 hectares of the former mining areas have become Indigofera plantations, while the rests have been planted by palm oil plantations. The reclamation process would be the real evidence that abandoned areas now turn to be productive asset to support environmental sustainability.

It spent about 2 years to conjure the areas. The first thing to do was by covering up every hole in the former mining, after that, it needed special treatment by spreading empty bunches, watered with fertilizers from the feces of cows. The areas were carefully watched so that the grass grew. These were the significant processes in the reclamation process.

Ranch Manager PT Buana Karya Bhakti, Wahyu Darsono said, it involved cows to step on and flat the areas. The process was about to get denser areas and ready for the next phase. As the output, the abandoned and broken areas have been successfully changed.

It was carefully considered to plant palm oil in some parts of the former mining areas because palm oil is the main commodity, the location of the areas is next to the high way. These were some considerations to develop palm oil. Some areas now turn to be Indigofera plantations the support to get additional woof for cow breeding.

For your information, the areas are parts of PT Simbiosis Karya Agroindustri that also cultivates about 6.000 hectares (plasma and main plantations). Besides palm oil, the company also breeds cows within about 2.000 cows. (T2)
