Recognizing that our activities materially impact the surrounding landscape, Indomining strives to minimize our impact on the environment in line with our goal of being a sustainable mining business. In keeping with relevant regulations, a comprehensive Environmental Impact Assessment is always done prior to the start of operations, which provides a plan going forward for the subsequent rehabilitation of the mine pits after mine closure. As part of that rehabilitation, the mined out areas will be replanted with local trees and vegetation that have been separately cultivated at Indomining’s nursery. In addition, all waste products are properly treated prior to being discharged back to the environment. Furthermore, Indomining is currently engaged in an environmental program with the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) under which students presented Indomining's environmental plants at the Students' International Scientific Meeting 2011 in London. The presentation focused on a cost / benefit feasibility study on the production of bioethanol from cassava plants cultivated within Indomining's concession area.
