Kupang, E Nusa Tenggara (ANTARA News) - Director of PT Puncak Keemasan Garam Dunia (PKGD), Ziwan Hendriawan, said a plan to build a salt factory in the district of Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) still remained in the pipeline because the license of Analysis of Environmental Impact (Amdal) has not been approved by the district administration.

"We are serious in building the factory to cost around Rp1.8 trillion in the district of Kupang , but the plan could not yet be implemented as the Amdal license is not yet approved by Regent Ayub Titu Eki," Ziwan Hendriawan said here on Monday.

He said PT PKGD plans to use a land plot of 3,720 hectares acquired by PT PKGD in 2017 from PT Pangung Guna Ganda Semesta (PGGS).

He said the local people are enthusiastic with the plan .

He said the factory is to have a production capacity of 400,000 tons per year. (AS/H-YH)
