Core Business


ANJ owns its first biogas power plant located at Belitung Island Plantation. It was built and run by PT Austindo Aufwind New Energy (AANE) with the primary aim of reducing the plantation’s greenhouse gas emissions. It is done by capturing methane released from the decomposition of palm oil mill effluent (POME) and burning it to generate electricity.

PT Austindo Aufwind New Energy (AANE), a subsidiary of the Company, has been licensed as an independent power producer (IPP) since 2013 and began operating commercially at the beginning of 2014. AANE operates a 1.8 MW capacity biogas power plant at our Belitung Island Plantation, generating electricity from the methane produced as a by-product of our CPO mill.

The Company plans to build further biogas power plants at selected mills for internal use, to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and improve our greenhouse gas emission reduction performance.
