Case studies to be developed by Indonesian Diaspora with Pak Rudolf Wirawan
The following the three integrated projects in collaboration with Indonesian Diaspora, the Indonesian people and the Indonesian government: Coffee Luwak, Bamboo Prefab Home and Casava Plastic
Coffee Luwak Project
The project is called "Smart Luwak Tracking System (SLTS)" and it is an NGO project, but not registered yet.
Problem Description: Currently cruel practices are used to produce Luwak coffee beans (Just Say No To Kopi Luwak).
Responding to the area of concern with a socially and environmentally just solution:Using GPS to track the Luwak (civet cat), so the civet cat can be released back to the wild in order to contribute to the natural process of fertilizing the forests whilst still producing Luwark faeces that can be collected by the farmer as explained at the following site: insert
Social and Environmental Impact:People can still enjoy a cup of Luwak coffee and the bond between Luwak coffee drinker and the civet cat will be stronger.
Bamboo Prefab House Project:The project is called "Sustainable Smart Living (SSL)" and it is an NGO project, but not as yet registered.
Problem Description: Currently the trend of unsustainable living in Indonesia is that more and more people are moving to the cities, which cause congested traffic, polluted air, polluted water, etc. On the other hand, there are more factories are moving to the rural area due to cheaper land cost.
Problem Solution:Bamboo prefabricated houses will help the rural economy as well as helping to reduce pollution.
We are starting the project in Thousand Island, North of Jakarta by turning one of the island (Kelapa Dua) to become the NUSANTARA GATEWAY tourist destinations. To create a GATEWAY, we will build a bamboo-prefabricated cafe as detailed at the attached website: insert
Social and Environmental Impact: By means of extremely simple natural products such as coffee and bamboo we will help to improve the rural economy as well as improving the tourism destination in Nusantara and making a sustainable living.
Cassava Plastic Project:Cassava plastic has been produced for quite sometime as depicted in the following two YouTube videos:
- Indonesian factory produces eco bags with cassava roots
- Cassava: An Indonesian Solution to the Global Waste Problem
The project is called "Ecoplas (cassava based plastic)" and it is registered as business: Greenhope. The technology has been widely scrutinized, tested, certified, to ensure trust and credibility. See website attached
Ecoplas has been invented and produced for quite sometime, but people in Indonesia and the world are still using the "cheap" Oil based plastic for convenience and governments all over the world are putting a blind eyes to the real costs and problems of using oil based plastic, as the costs are mostly hidden. But one day we all have to pay it back in the future with extremely big cost and impact to our environment!
Raise awareness of the Ecoplas product to Indonesia nationwide as well as to the world for tourists visiting the NUSANTARA GATEWAY Bamboo Cafe in the Thousand Island.
Social and Environmental Impact:
By means of extremely simple natural products such as cassava, coffee and bamboo, will help create a sustainable world by preserving FOOD, WATER and ENERGY.
