The presence of soluble and industrial pulp industries in Riau is expected to substitute import demand in the textile sector. Director of Forest Products and Plantation Industries at the Ministry of Industry, Edy Sutopo, said that the need for soluble pulp or dissolving pulp to 400,000 tons to 500,000 tons per year is wholly imported.

 

"Thus, if the pulp and rayon dissolving project in Riau by PT Asia Pulp Rayon with 350,000 tons per year capacity is operational, it will save foreign exchange and strengthen the structure of textile industry and national textile products," said Edy, Monday (26/2) / 2018).

 

Dissolving pulp known as soluble pulp is a kind of long fiber pulp slurry that becomes one of the textile raw materials. In contrast to ordinary pulp taken from acacia plants, soluble pulp is extracted from the eucalyptus plant. The rayon is known as artificial silk because it is formed from the processing of fibers from nature. This type of fabric usually looks shiny and not easily wrinkled.

 

The Ministry of Industry recorded pulp and paper to be the top five exporters. In 2017, the contribution of the processing industry to the exports of palm oil industry amounted to Rp287, 24 trillion, the metal industry Rp141, 16 trillion, food industry Rp134, 93 trillion, transportation equipment industry Rp116, 63 trillion, electronics industry Rp105, 94 trillion, so Rp90, 31 trillion, pulp and paper industry Rp84 trillion, and the metal industry Rp59, 9 trillion.

 

Meanwhile, paper producer PT Aspex Kumbong is targeting to start building a new tissue plant this year and produce in 2019. General Manager of Aspex Kumbong Yoonyong Lee said the selection of tissue business due to the high demand of the market. In addition, the business expansion to expand the company's business that is currently focused in making paper made from recycled raw materials.

 

"We are preparing US $ 9 million for investment" he said.

 

Kemenperin Berharap pada Industri Rayon untuk Gantikan Impor

 

Kehadiran industri pulp larut dan industri di Riau diharapkan dapat mensubstitusi kebutuhan impor di sektor tekstil

 

Direktur Industri Hasil Hutan dan Perkebunan Kementerian Perindustrian Edy Sutopo mengatakan saat ini kebutuhan pulp larut atau dissolving pulp mencapai 400.000 ton hingga 500.000 ton per tahun dipenuhi seluruhnya dari impor.

 

"Dengan demikian apabila proyek dissolving pulp dan rayon di Riau oleh PT. Asia Pulp Rayon dengan kapasitas 350.000 ton per tahun tersebut beroperasi, maka akan terjadi penghematan devisa dan memperkuat struktur industri tekstil dan produk tekstil nasional," kata Edy, Senin (26/2/2018).

 

Dissolving pulp atau dikenal dengan pulp larut adalah semacam bubur pulp serat panjang yang menjadi salah satu bahan baku  tekstil. Berbeda dengan pulp biasa yang diambil dari tanaman akasia, pulp larut diambil dari tanaman eucalyptus. Adapun rayon dikenal sebagai sutra buatan karena dibentuk dari pemrosesan serat dari alam. Kain jenis ini biasanya terlihat berkilau dan tidak mudah kusut.

 

Kementerian Perindustrian mencatat pulp dan kertas menjadi lima besar penopang ekspor. Pada 2017, besaran kontribusi industri pengolahan bagi ekspor yakni industri kelapa sawit sebesar Rp287,24 triliun, industri logam Rp141,16 triliun, industri makanan Rp134,93 triliun, industri alat transportasi Rp116,63 triliun, industri elektronika Rp105,94 triliun, industri pakaian jadi Rp90,31 triliun, industri pulp dan kertas Rp84 triliun, serta industri logam Rp59,9 triliun.

 

Sementara itu produsen kertas PT Aspex Kumbong menargetkan memulai membangun pabrik tissue baru tahun ini dan berproduksi pada 2019. General Manager Aspex Kumbong Yoonyong Lee mengatakan pemilihan bisnis tissue karena tingginya permintaan pasar. Selain itu ekspansi usaha guna melebarkan bisnis perusahaan yang saat ini fokus dalam pembuatan kertas berbahan baku daur ulang.

 

"Kami siapkan US$9 juta untuk investasi" katanya.
