Wilmar Supports Palm Oil Downstream Industries in Indonesia to Spur Green Energy

InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA – Wilmar always does succeed the government’s programs to realize palm oil downstream industries nationally, namely biodiesel. The company convinced that biodiesel industry will be the host in our country.

Director of Wilmar, Erik Tjia said, biodiesel industry is not business only but also is the form of help from many companies for our country.

This is the same with what President Joko Widodo told some time ago.

Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources acknowledges what Wilmar produces in biodiesel industry by achieving 2021 Subroto Award in Vegetable oil Distribution, and Work Health Safety and Environment Management. It was rewarded on 28 September 2021 and the only award given to biodiesel company in the event.

Subroto Award is the top rank in energy and mineral resource sector given to stakeholders within best work to advance these sectors in Indonesia. “We are very proud of our hard work and get the award from the government. This trigger us to do better in the future,” Erik said, as in the official statement to InfoSAWIT, Wednesday (24/11/2021).

The mills of Wilmar also get SNI Awards from Badan Standarisasi Nasional (BSN) in gold rank to PT Wilmar Nabati Indonesia and PT Multimas Nabati Asahan gets bronze rank for fulfilling the standards.

In downstream sectors, Wilmar also escalates Tingkat Komponen Dalam Negeri (TKDN) in biodiesel industry. This is the support for other related industries to develop together. TKDN in Wilmar’s biodiesel industry has reached 90 percent. “We also proposed to get TKDN certificate to Ministry of Industry,” he said. (T2)
