The Toughest Problems of Indonesian Textile Industry in Dyeing Sector PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maizer   
Tuesday, 08 October 2019

The Indonesian textile industry is considered to be the time to rejuvenate machinery from upstream to downstream levels to be able to compete again at the global level. The hardest problem is currently in the dyeing sector.

 

Chairperson of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Ade Sudradjat said that more than 85 percent of the machines in the color processing factory in textiles are more than 30 years old. Production costs are also felt to be higher because it takes a lot of energy.

 

For example, in the use of water, an old dyeing machine has a capacity of 10 to one between water and fabric raw materials. Not to mention, the chemicals included are also more than modern machines where the ratio of water usage can be 4.5: 1.

 

"If the water heats up a lot, the water itself requires a lot of energy, as well as the ratio of chemicals that are put into it must be a lot," Ade said.

 

In addition to being inefficient in energy use, the dyeing sector also has to face high waste treatment costs because it is required to be environmentally friendly. More water and chemicals are used, which means that the costs for the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) are also high.

 

"The ratio of water and chemicals is large then the WWTP also has to spend a lot of money. More energy is also half processing half, definitely inferior to imported products," he said.

 

Furthermore, the machine restructuring program launched by the Ministry of Industry (Kemenperin) also became a breath of fresh air which was expected to be more progressive. Three years running, offering discounts on the purchase of new machines has also been used by 20 percent of API members.

 

Ade hopes that in the coming year the machine restructuring program is expected to continue. The incentives provided directly to the processing technique are also suggested to focus on the most crucial problem, namely dyeing.

 

"In my opinion, the focus is on dyeing, printing, printing and finishing. Don't go upstream like spinning, weaving and garment, not yet," he explained.

 

Ade believes that the country's textile industry can bounce back and compete on a global level. Because, the quality of Indonesian textile products has long been widely recognized by world fashion manufacturers.

 

"This immersion is a weak point that must be revitalized immediately, then becomes environmentally friendly because it does not use too much water so that the success rate is more competitive," he concluded.
