TPL Diharap Latih Masyarakat Kembangkan Produk Rumahan Olahan Eucalyptus

TPL Diharap Latih Masyarakat Kembangkan Produk Rumahan Olahan Eucalyptus | OBROLANBISNIS.com — Seribu satu manfaat. “Itulah julukan yang tepat bagi tanaman pintar Eucalyptus,” kata seorang masyarakat Kampung Sejahtera, Adly Nasution usai melakukan panen perdana daun Eucalyptus saat berbincang-bincang dengan pengurus UKM Jurnalis Bina Mandiri (JBM), 12 Agustus 2021.

Panen daun dari pohon Eucalyptus itu dilakukan di seputaran bantaran sungai yang berada di kawasan Kampung Sejahtera (Kampung Madras) yang terletak di Jalan Zainul Arifin, Medan.

Tanaman yang diisukan sebagai tanaman perusak lingkungan ini justru menurut Adly menunjukan kehebatannya di tengah pandemi covid-19 ini.

Kalau tadinya, produk yang dihasilkan dari minyak atsiri daun Eucalyptus ini terbilang sedikit, tapi saat ini banyak bermunculan produk baru berbahan baku Eucalyptus dan pamornya semakin melejit karena dinilai efektif menangkal virus Covid-19.

Sebut saja diantaranya sabun pencuci tangan, sabun badan, pembersih atau pengepel lantai, hand sanitizer ditambah dengan produk yang sudah melegenda selama ini seperti minyak kayu putih, minyak telon, minyak gosok dan lain sebagainya.

Menurut Adly, istrinya yang bekerja di bidang farmasi telah membuat sabun padat untuk badan. Sabun badan berbahan Eucalyptus itu akan diproduksi secara komersil.

“Kalau ini dikembangkan di tengah-tengah masyarakat pastinya tidak hanya menambah pendapatan saja tapi juga masyarakat bisa terlindungi dari virus mematikan Covid-19 dengan rajin mencuci tangan,” kata Ketua Perkumpulan Pemuda Pemudi Kampung Sejahtera, (P3KS), Rasyid dalam obrolan itu.

Karena itu, kata Rasyid, pengembangan ilmu masyarakat dalam pembuatan berbagai produk industri rumah tangga berbahan Eucalyptus perlu dilakukan.

Apalagi saat ini, ada berkisar 19 batang tanaman eucalyptus yang telah ditanam di sepanjang bantaran sungai di kawasan Kampung Sejahtera.

Dimana daunnya sudah dapat dipanen meskipun tanamannya masih berumur lima bulan, tapi ketinggian pohonnya sudah mencapai berkisar 2,5 meter.

“Eucalyptus ini ditanam pada bulan Maret lalu. Penanaman yang dilakukan ini tidak akan memberikan manfaat nyata bagi ekonomi masyarakat kalau daunnya tidak dimanfaatkan,” jelasnya.

 



Ketua UKM JBM, Fakhrudin Pohan alias Kocu menambahkan, penanaman pohon Eucalyptus secara rumahan (tanaman pekarangan) sudah merambah beberapa wilayah di Sumatera Utara, seperti Kota Medan, Binjai, Deliserdang dan Serdang Bedagai (Sergai).

Dan, melihat manfaatnya yang begitu banyak bagi kesehatan manusia, sosialisasi tanaman Eucalyptus ini, menurut Kocu, akan terus dilakukan.

Kocu berharap, kolaborasi UKM Jurnalis dengan perusahaan TPL dapat dikembangkan dengan memberikan pelatihan kepada masyarakat untuk mengolah daun Eucalyptus menjadi produk rumahan yang bermanfaat.

Soal tanaman yang digadang-gadang banyak menyerap air, Corporate Comunication (Corpcom) PT Toba Pulp Lestari, Tbk (TPL) Medan, Dedy Armaya membantahnya.

“Tanaman Eucalyptus ini tidak seperti yang banyak diperdebatkan orang. Pohon ini termasuk tanaman pintar. Disebut pintar karena, saat mulai besar atau di atas satu tahun, ranting-ranting pohon akan jatuh (gugur) dengan sendirinya,” terang Dedy.

Kalau ranting-ranting berguguran dan tersisa batang dengan daun pucuk atas, lanjut Dedy, pastinya serapan air akan semakin sedikit.

“Itu yang terjadi selama ini di area pengembangan eucalyptus yang dikembangkan perusahaan PT Toba Pulp Lestari (TPL),” kata Dedy.

Selama ini, kata Dedy, daun eucalyptus tidak dimanfaatkan perusahaan. Perusahaan hanya mengambil batang pohon Eucalyptus. Karena itu, daun yang menjadi limbah perusahaan itu akan sangat berarti bila dimanfaatkan.

“TPL berharap melalui kerjasama dengan UKM JBM produk-produk home industri berbahan eucalyptus akan bermunculan,” kata Dedy. ***

TPL Expected to Train the Community to Develop Homemade Products Processed Eucalyptus | OBROLANBISNIS.com — A thousand and one benefits. “That’s the right nickname for the smart plant Eucalyptus,” said a community from Kampung Sejahtera, Adly Nasution after harvesting Eucalyptus leaves while talking with the management of the UKM Journalist Bina Mandiri (JBM), August 12, 2021.

The harvest of leaves from the Eucalyptus tree is carried out around the riverbank in the Kampung Sejahtera (Kampung Madras) area, which is located on Jalan Zainul Arifin, Medan.

According to Adly, this plant which is rumored to be a destroyer of the environment, actually shows its prowess in the midst of this covid-19 pandemic.

Previously, there were relatively few products made from Eucalyptus leaf essential oil, but now there are many new products made from Eucalyptus and their prestige has skyrocketed because they are considered effective in warding off the Covid-19 virus.

Call it hand soap, body soap, floor cleaner or mop, hand sanitizer plus products that have been legendary so far such as eucalyptus oil, telon oil, rubbing oil and so on.

 

 



According to Adly, his wife who works in the pharmaceutical sector has made solid soap for the body. The body soap made from Eucalyptus will be produced commercially.

“If this is developed in the midst of the community, it will certainly not only increase income but also the community can be protected from the deadly virus Covid-19 by diligently washing their hands,” said Chairman of the Prosperous Village Youth and Youth Association (P3KS), Rasyid in the chat.

Therefore, said Rasyid, the development of public knowledge in the manufacture of various home industry products made from Eucalyptus needs to be done.

Moreover, currently, there are around 19 eucalyptus stems that have been planted along the riverbanks in the Kampung Sejahtera area.

Where the leaves can be harvested even though the plant is still five months old, but the height of the tree has reached around 2.5 meters.

 

 



“This eucalyptus was planted last March. This planting will not provide real benefits to the community’s economy if the leaves are not used,” he explained.

The chairman of the JBM UKM, Fakhrudin Pohan alias Kocu, added that home planting of Eucalyptus trees (yard plants) has penetrated several areas in North Sumatra, such as Medan City, Binjai, Deliserdang and Serdang Bedagai (Sergai).

And, seeing the many benefits for human health, the socialization of this Eucalyptus plant, according to Kocu, will continue to be carried out.

Kocu hopes that the collaboration of UKM Journalists with TPL companies can be developed by providing training to the community to process Eucalyptus leaves into useful home products.

Regarding the plants which are predicted to absorb a lot of water, the Corporate Communications (Corpcom) of PT Toba Pulp Lestari, Tbk (TPL) Medan, Dedy Armaya denied it.

 



“This Eucalyptus plant is not what a lot of people argue about. This tree is a smart plant. It is called smart because, when it starts to grow or is over a year old, the tree branches will fall (fall) by themselves,” explained Dedy.

If the branches fall and the remaining stems with top leaves, Dedy continued, surely the water absorption will be less.

“That has happened so far in the eucalyptus development area developed by the PT Toba Pulp Lestari (TPL) company,” said Dedy.

So far, said Dedy, the company has not used eucalyptus leaves. The company only takes Eucalyptus tree trunks. Therefore, the leaves that become the company’s waste will be very meaningful if used.

“TPL hopes that through collaboration with JBM SMEs, home industrial products made from eucalyptus will emerge,” said Dedy. ***
