Accelerating the LTJ Research Process, PT Bersahaja Visits the Yogyakarta Brin Pilot Plan

Yogyakarta, Timerilis.com – PT Bersahaja, which is currently focusing on conducting research and accelerating the Downstream Monazite into Rare Earth Metal Oxides (LTJ), Phosphates, Uranium, and Thorium, visited the Yogyakarta National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) in the LTJ pilot plan operated by Batan, Friday (25/11/2022).
Representative of PT Bersahaja Nico Alpiandy directly inspected the construction of the entire pilot plan, that with this the follow-up work on the LTJ could be carried out immediately.
“It can run in the current conditions, there are only a few that need repair at certain points because it hasn’t been used for a long time. Apart from that, all the tools will also be checked again for their functions,” said Nico.
At the same time, Brin Yogyakarta Nuclear Fuel Fabrication Engineering Expert Dedy Husnurrofiq said, Brin Yogyakarta was 95 percent ready to conduct monazite research from the advanced process carried out at the Brin Pasar Jumat pilot plan, Jakarta.
“We have prepared monazite processing equipment here. It is 95 percent processed here so that it can produce Cerium (Ce), Lanthanum (La), and Neodymium (Nd),” said Dedy.
There are still a few problems with the operation of the pilot plan which will be resolved soon. So that, when the feed material from Brin Pasar Jumat, Jakarta arrives, the machine can be used.
“There are a few obstacles. Hopefully, through this collaboration can be resolved to produce maximum results,” said Dedy.
Apart from the readiness of the pilot plan, the human resources (HR) in the Yogyakarta pilot plan have also been well equipped, and have directly involved researchers who have been working in the field of REEs for a long time.
“We are all ready, both Mrs. Yanti and her management friends here are all ready. The challenge may be when the process takes place between equipment or operating conditions, because this pilot plan is from a lab scale first,” explained Dedy.
PT Bersahaja is conducting research and accelerating the Downstream of Monazite into Rare Earth Metal Oxides (LTJ), Phosphate, Uranium, and Thorium. In collaboration with the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Investment (Kemenko Marves), National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN), Ministry of Energy and Resources Mineral Resources (ESDM), PT Rekayasa Industri (Rekind), and PT Timah
