"Towards 2017 and the Challenges of Global Environmental Problems"


ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) has been established in 2015 as a major milestone in the regional economic integration agenda, offering opportunities in the form of a huge market in ASEAN. It opens a gateway to access to the global competition. This could also become a new beginning for the center of technology for environmental (PTL) to solve the challenges in innovation and technology services. As an organization, PTL has human resources with high-level competencies that will always constantly strive to bring the innovations in the field of environmental technology. The big asset of human resources could give a real contribution to the assesment and application of the environment technology in Indonesia. As a new chapter in the era of reformation, changing in the quality and performance of PTL into a better direction is expected to be realized through accelerated technological innovation that is supported by the spirit of all the changes in human resources.


Strategic policies of PTL in order to enhance the performance can be devided into four pillars, as follows:

  1. Setting the annual action plans by applying the principle of product optimization, including the efficiency of pre-annual activities and management control of funding and running activities.

  2. Improving human resources in accordance with the direction and course of environmental technolog, with the hope of encouraging the establishment of innovation to be more optimal.

  3. Refocusing engineering innovation activities in accordance with the strategic plan 2016-2020.

  4. Strengthening the dissemination and application of environmental technologies to the national development through cooperative research, development and application of technology with various partners.

Synergizing between those factors is expected to be able to create improved quality of innovation in the field of environmental technology. In the coming years, to face of the demands of the times and increasingly rapid technological development, PTL will continue to increase the competence of human resources and innovation products. In addition, PTL will continue to support the government's policies through the assessment and application of environmental technologies.
