PALM OIL AND SUSTAINABLE RENEWABLE ENERGY

Why consider developing Renewable Energy?
• Conversion of abundant by-products (waste) to useful, clean energy;
• Minimise long term waste management cost, generate sustainable
income;
• Reduce dependence on other energy suppliers and sustain further
downstream processes (e.g. conversion of EFB to pellets);
• In line with Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) Principle 5
(Environmental responsibility and conservation of natural resources and
biodiversity);
• In line with Government’s policy in developing renewable energy; and
• In line with the Government’s commitment to reduce 40% of Greenhouse
Gas Emission by 2020.
