Textile Industries Reduce Production 50% Because of Effects Citarum PDF Print E-mail

The Harum Citarum program that was rolled out by the 2018 government then affected the textile industry, especially dyeing around Citarum. At least, hundreds of dyeing plants around Citarum reduce production by 50 percent. This is because the Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) owned by the factory does not meet the quality standards.

 

 

Kevin admitted, inevitably, the industry does have to follow quality standards so that it no longer pollutes Citarum. This improvement requires a different time for each factory.

 

There is a factory that only takes 6 months to fix the WWTP. But if you want to set-up the WWTP from the beginning, it will take up to 2 years. During these improvements, the factory cannot operate optimally. At present, the average production of the dyeing industry ranges from 50-70 percent.

 

When the dyeing plant is in trouble, other related industries are affected, for example in the yarn or fabric industry. "The new production will be normal after the WWTP is finished," he said.

 

The problem then comes with the high demand for cloth in the community, while production decreases. This condition makes imports of fabrics, especially from China increasingly stretching.

 

In fact, he noted, up to now imports of fabrics from China reached 80 percent. He did not hold detailed data about the increase in imports after the Harum Citarum program. But he gave an example of the import of one type of cloth in the 2017-2018 period up 100 percent.

 

Moreover, China is indeed so aggressively exporting its products. Even China controls 40 percent of the funding needs of textile products. "We (the Indonesian textile industry) on the world market are less than 2 percent.

 

But China controls 40 percent of the world's needs, "he concluded. Harum Citarum is normatively regulated in Presidential Regulation (Perpres) Number 15 of 2018 concerning the Acceleration of Citarum Watershed Pollution and Damage Control.
