Preliminary Life Cycle Assessment to Support Socio-Energy Innovation for Metal Processing Industry: An Approach from Pindad, Bandung – Indonesia


In order to support and participate in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) contribution, one of the instruments is the life cycle assessment as an approach to the study of clean production in the manufacturing industry. Pindad Bandung, which operates in West Java, Indonesia, is a metal processing manufacturing industry producing multiple Indonesian-made products. As innovation in supporting product quality and more benefits to the surrounding community, a preliminary LCA study was carried out starting from evaluating the energy balance and emissions in the production process. The resulting innovation supports financial savings and provides a competitive advantage in developing environmental-based community empowerment programs and core competencies of business processes. Several discussions are related to special programs in energy, environment, and community empowerment, each of which is related to the basic study of LCA. As for the LCA, the Gate to Gate system has a limitation with ton as the product unit. Meanwhile, in the energy and emission aspects, an electric motor program is internally manufactured to reduce the use of oil-fueled vehicles with an energy efficiency and reduce GHG emissions. In the 3R aspect of B3 Waste, there is a replacement program for coolant, which has a longer lifetime, while in Non-B3 Waste, 100% of the remaining raw materials are reproduced into multi-products. The water efficiency aspect focuses more on assessing water use and potential leakage, integrated with the water performance management roadmap. Meanwhile, in reducing the wastewater load, the unit is rejuvenated to optimize the wastewater treatment, reflected LCA valuation.
