PT Rehabilitasi Lingkungan Indonesia (RLI)

RLI is APM’s subsidiary that provides revegetation services at reclamation areas and supervisory management and project manager services for watershed rehabilitation projects. The watershed rehabilitation and revegetation of reclamation areas are obligatory for mining companies as Forest Area Borrow-to-Use Permit holders and as postmining obligation.

In 2023, RLI conducted several revegetation projects comprising planting areas totaling 343,95 Ha and managing areas totaling 982 Ha. RLI also worked on new revegetation projects, i.e. the land erosion control totaling 39 Ha, using the cover crop manual method.

In the same year, RLI successfully supported watershed rehabilitation of PT Adaro Indonesia (AI) and PT Maruwai Coal (MC) until the handover of the rehabilitated areas to Watershed Area Management Agency (BPDAS) as the regional representative. Supported by RLI, the total area handed over was 2,102.42 Ha for AI and 633.2 Ha for MC.

In addition to the above activities, RLI’s team also conducted measures to prevent and handle land fire at the watershed rehabilitation revegetation areas during the prolonged dry season in 2023.


PT Agri Multi Lestari (AML)

AML is an APM’s subsidiary operating in the agribusiness and biomass businesses.

In agribusiness, AML produces solid and liquid organic fertilizer produced by its cattle farming operations and plant seeds produced by its nursery. In 2023, AML produced 815 tons of solid organic fertilizer supplied to PT Adaro Indonesia (AI) and two other APM subsidiaries, PT Alam Sukses Lestari (ASL) and PT Hutan Amanah Lestari (HAL). Liquid fertilizer production volume totaled 62,720 liters and it was used for supporting revegetation activities and planting the grass used as animal feed. 

AML has completed the development of a modern nursery that can produce up to 900,000 seedlings, which uses ellepots and paperpots to substitute polybags for more environmentally friendly operations. In 2023, AML produced 306,538 seedlings, which were used for AI’s revegetation activities. 

AML’s biomass business focuses on woodchips used for co-firing at the coal-fired power plant (CFPP) of PT Makmur Sejahtera Wisesa (MSW). AML has completed the study of woodchip biomass and proceeded to the next project phase. The biomass ecosystem must be developed to ensure continuity of woodchip supply to MSW.

One of AML’s activities to build biomass ecosystem is by planting high-calory biomass plants (>4,200 Kcal/kg), such as Calliandra and Gliricidia. AML strives to create the ecosystem for environmentally sustainable woodchip biomass production for the operations’ life cycle to achieve net zero emission.
