To increase the effectiveness of disaster management, especially related to the Company's gas pipeline, PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical Tbk held a routine Community Awareness activity on 9 September 2021 for the community in Purwakarta District. This activity is the third implementation carried out in 2021, after previously being held in Mangunreja District and Ciwandan District. This activity aims to provide residents with an understanding of the Company's gas pipelines that are close to their settlements and also provide insight into disaster mitigation.
Held at the Purwakarta Village office, this Community Awareness activity also presented three new materials to the surrounding community, including B3 and Non-B3 Waste Management, Community Water Resources Management, and Community Energy Resource Management and Emission Reduction. These materials are a form of Corporate Shared Value provided by the Company to the public.
In conducting operational activities, it is not uncommon for several impacts to arise from the ongoing production process. Chandra Asri as a company that prioritizes the health and safety of employees and the surrounding community, continues to make efforts to routinely inspect and maintain assets, identify and monitor risks, and invest in the best technology to minimize environmental and social impacts. One of them is by operating the Enclosed Ground Flare (EGF), a smokeless flare technology at our petrochemical complex in Cilegon, Banten.
As a solution for handling exhaust gases at start up process and if there are problems during operational activities, EGF comes with the ability to burn residual hydrocarbon gases using a closed combustion method so that it does not cause heat and air radiation. Through EGF, the exhaust emissions released also meet environmental quality standards. When starting the EGF construction in 2018, Chandra Asri has chosen the design with the maximum capacity available from all the EGF manufacturing companies worldwide in that year.
From an environmental perspective, EGF is designed to carry out the combustion process completely so that no hydrocarbons from combustion are discharged into the air. From a social perspective, the advantage of the technology over a conventional flare lies in its ability to reduce noise while eliminating flame and smoke.
In the context of Eid al-Adha 1442 H, PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical Tbk with MUI Banten again distributed their contribution in providing 40,450 Sacrificial Meat Containers. This hygienic, reusable and recyclable packaging was given to the community around the Chandra Asri Site Office and various areas in the Banten Province, cattle villa, and several mosques around Jabodetabek.
This sacrificial meat container is a type of thin-walled packaging made from one of Chandra Asri's products, Polypropylene (PP) HI50TN. The raw materials used have been certified Halal by the Indonesian MUI, SNI, and meet the applicable national and international regulations so that they are guaranteed to be safe for use by the public.
In producing this packaging, Chandra Asri collaborates with PT Dadap Plasindo, a company producing plastic packaging products in Indonesia.
Continuing the support of 210 tons of liquid oxygen which was previously distributed to various hospitals in Jakarta and Banten, PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical Tbk handed over 100 tons of liquid oxygen to the Provincial Government of Special Capital District of Jakarta. Through the Association of Regional Hospitals (ARSADA), this aid will begin to be distributed on 27 July 2021 in stages over the next two months to various Regional General Hospitals (RSUD) and Regional Special Hospitals (RSKD) in Jakarta.
