Malaysia invests $400m in biofuel industrial park

December 3, 2007 (Biofuel Review) – A 200 acre Biofuel Integrated Environmental Park is to be built Malaysian State of Perak at a cost of $400 million, it was announced last week. The project, a joint venture between the Perak State Government and Earth Biofuel (Asia) Sdn Bhd, will involve 900,000 carbon credit, a centralized treatment system for 4000 m3/hr industrial & biological waste water, methane gas recovery for 300,000 tonne/year landfill and R&D cum Training Centre generating about 30,000 jobs related to the project.According to a State Government source, “We have to look beyond our dependence on polluting fossil oil, especially in the area of power utility in our industrial sector, and the proposed biofuel industrial park, with its own self sufficient source of electricity and steam will not only achieve this, but will utilize our State based renewable energy source – biodiesel from our own crude palm oil, rice husk, waste woodchips, waste palm sludge and waste cooking oil.

“This facility will be a showpiece industrial park, with investors enjoying total self-sufficient renewable energy sources, arising from its own on-site based biofuel plants, such as its Biodiesel plant, Biomass Co-generation Steam & Electricity Plant, Waste Liquid and Semi-solid Waste Treatment Plant, Biogas Methane Power Plant from biodegradable wastes and will also house the country’s first Biofuel Training Centre with Employment specializing in all related technologies & operations of the Park .”

This project is set to be launched simultaneously with two other similar projects in other Malaysian States of Pahang, and Terengganu. The projects are all slated to commence in 2008.

  1. I just recently attended the International ENergy Week in Singapore (November 3-7,2008) held at the Raffles City Convention Centre, as organized by the Energy Market Authority and Energy Studies Institute & Bang’s Public Relations.Major issues on biofuel since it competes for agricultural lands and significant requirement for water consumption(pls note that water uses a lot of energy too for both desalination, filtration, distribution, etc.). Thus, our company, Energy Source Consulting with various partners from all over the world is bringing in the technology to increase yield and efficiency of existing Jathropa and other agricultural stock used for biodiesel. Hope we can help individuals, corporations and countries. Furthermore, we provide advanced technologies on biofuel production like cellulose tech & other complementary technologies like wind tech, hydro, hydrogen,biomass, etc. Therefore, we access the best alternative sources of energy based on natural resource,etc. that varies per country (comparative advantage)– ; e-mail:
