KABAR ALAM - So far, Subang Regency, West Java, is identical with pineapples. This sweet-tasting fruit also brings prosperity to the farmers in Subang.

PEP Subang Field actually sees pineapple leaf fiber as a very good potential to be developed from this commodity. This part of the pineapple plant is often not used properly by farmers, even though the natural fiber it contains is of high economic value.

Pineapple leaf fiber can be processed into environmentally friendly textiles (green textiles), resin mixtures, and can also be used as paper materials.

The Pesona Subang Program supports the pineapple leaf fiber processing business that has been developed by the people of Cikadu Village, Cijambe District, Subang Regency. This program seeks to encourage the productive use of pineapple leaf waste through the extraction of pineapple leaf fiber.

Subang Field Senior Manager, Ndirga Andri Sisworo said, Subang 's charm is the company's contribution to environmental conservation around its operational area.
