Those activities are a follow-up to TGEM's plan to build a Class 1 Nickel processing area in the SEZ in Sorong, which is projected to be the first integrated Eco Industrial Park in Indonesia known as Indonesia Green Nickel Integrated Technology Ecopark (IGNITE Ecopark).

IGNITE Ecopark will use Hydrometallurgical Step Temperature Acid Leach (STAL) Technology as the main technology for extracting Nickel, and is supported by various supporting industries, especially for energy, gas, as well as chemical and waste management, by prioritizing environmental sustainability and emission reduction.

According to the President Director of TGEM, Widodo Sucipto, Sorong Regency has the potential as a center for the nickel industry, because it is located in one of the central locations of nickel ore reserves in Indonesia. In addition, Widodo also praised the readiness of the facilities owned by the SEZ in Sorong, such as the availability of adequate energy, gas, and ports.

Therefore, Widodo continued, he and the entire ranks of PT Trinitan Green Energy Metals (TGEM) requested support from the Sorong SEZ operator, SEZ administrator, the Sorong Regency Government and OPD for the continuity of the project and TGEM's investment in the SEZ in Sorong.
