Introduction Efforts to deal the crisis with the International Monetary Fund have agreed on the importance of increased business development activities of industries like, realizing self-reliance, increased competitiveness, productivity, and efficiency (Bappenas, 2011). Direktorat Jenderal Basis Industri Manufaktur stated about the problems that Indonesia manufacturing industries have. Two of them is about efficiency. First, it’s about energy consumption as the industry supply. Based on Journal of energy, experts use elasticity and energy intensity parameters in measuring the efficiency of energy consumption. According to research that conducted by PT Energy Management Indonesia (EMI) in 2010, the point of elasticity energy in Indonesia reached 1,84, that means to encourage economic growth by 1%, then the energy supply should rise as much as 1,84%. At the same time, the economic growth in Indonesia is about 6% (data from BPS), then it would require additional energy supply by 11%. Still according to EMI, with that numbers Indonesia became the most energy-intensive countries in ASEAN.

Manufacturing industry itself has the largest contribution in energy consumption. “The industrial sector still dominates the energy consumption in this state by using 329,7 million SBM (equal to barrels of oil), or 49,4% of the total national energy consumption,” said Dirjen EBTKE, Luluk Sumiarso. Second, it’s about waste. Based on lean manufacturing, there are 7 types of waste: over production, unnecessary production, inventory, motion, defects, over processing, and waiting. Based on the chart, waste of manufacturing industries is still produced as much as 26%. Pollution is included to waste for unnecessary production. Ministry of Environment noted there are still about 40% of Indonesia industries that pollute the environment because they have not been able to

The government only target the industries to be certified environmentally. especially industries because implicitly. the efficiency should be focused on standardization or policy in minimizing input (energy) and maximizing output (waste). they also solve the financial problem which a very sensitive problem. For manufacturing industries. so it doesn’t necessary for government to concern about the optimization of waste treatment process. there were 60% of Indonesia industries that can process their waste. in other word is efficiency. the efficiency problems is very important to be solved by everyone. As a conclusion. but it still not optimally serve targeted because the waste treatment standardization is still unclear.process their wastes. At the same time. .
