The signing of PKS on Facilitation  of Fly Ash and Bottom Ash  ("FABA") Utilization of Central Java Power Plant 2 x 1,000 MW (Batang Power Plant), was carried out by Head of Disperakim of Central Java Arief Djatmiko and President Director of BPI Ryuta Sato at Ciputra Hotel Semarang, Friday (11/8). 

Head of Disperakim of Central Java Arief Djatmiko asked applicators or developers who build subsidized houses and MSMEs engaged in the building materials sector to be able to make maximum use of the PKS that has been carried out by Disperakim and the Batang Power Plant.

Arief Djatmiko invited all parties to help succeed and launch quality improvement programs in RTLH and healthy simple houses that are currently being promoted by the central government.
"This PKS is very good for developers of the construction of Healthy Simple Houses and what is clear is that with this PKS, Central Java is starting to enter the development using environmentally friendly materials by utilizing coal combustion waste materials at power plant / "REUSE" Central Java Go Green," said Arief Djatmiko, after the 2023 National Housing Day Commemoration event as well as the 78th Anniversary of Central Java Province and the signing of the PKS between the Disperakim of Central Java and BPI last week.
