Malaysia Building First Biodiesel Refinery

24 April 2005

Negeri_sembilan

Bernama. The Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) and Golden Hope Plantations are partnering to build a biodiesel plant in Labu in Negeri Sembilan—the first in the country.

MPOB is investing RM 40 million ($10.5 million) in the plant, according to Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui.

Expected to be completed in three years, the plant will produce 5,000 tonnes (approximately 36.5 thousand barrels or 1.15 million gallons) of biodiesel a month.

The biodiesel is slated for export to Europe. Port Dickson, also in the state of Negeri Sembilan, is a major oil terminal and site of the largest refinery in the country (Shell Port Dickson).

Chin said the fuel could not be used in Malaysia as the existing infrastructure of the major oil companies in the country to blend the biodiesel with petroleum diesel was insufficient.

The companies would have to work together with MPOB and Golden Hope Plantations to develop the infrastructure, he said, adding that there weren't any legal provisions for the alternative fuel in the country at the moment.

“That is why we have to export. In terms of marketing, we do not see any problems,” he said

Asked why the government started this project, Chin replied that it was to put Malaysia on the world map in coming out with alternative fuels.

I am fasinated by Malaysia. Send me as much info as possible on green technology in Malaysia!!!!

It is a good start for Malaysia, i hope we in malaysia can use biodiesel too! Malaysia goverment should help encouraging development of alternative fuel in the country, with oil palm as one of the main production of the country, in long term this will bring only benefit. Also, i hope this will help prevent any "diesel crisis" in the future, believe it or not, we are having diesel shortage in the country althouth we hv petroleum as natural resource.

i really need a picture of a biodiesel refinery asap.

please send it to teshiele@gmail.com

Hello

I have long interest in alternate fuel especially biodiesl. I have a privilege to work and developed a sophisticated patented technology based on Microchip process that will cut the huge capital cost of conventional biodiesel system without producing any side product such as glycerol etc. after transesterification and the yield is 100%. A commercial system has been working in the Mid-West area since last Oct producing more than 10000 gallons per day in a continuous process (15 gallons per minute) with a capital cost at least 10 times lesser than conventional biodiesel system. The quality of the biodiesel is superb excellent in BTU value higher than # 2 diesel, reduction in NOX etc. and the cost of the biodiesel is equal than #2 diesel which is impossible to make from any conventional method of acid/base transesterification. Any body is interested to know further, can reach me at Atlanta Ga or via email. ahmed_baosman@hotmail.com.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Sir ,
Interested to know more about bio-disel projects & its prospects.

Dear Sir,

I understand that biodiesel is manufactured from crude palm oil (CPO) in Malaysia. I also understand that CPO has a few grades (A,B,C & D). Can I know from which CPO grade is the biodiesel produced?

Where else can I get more information regarding Malaysia CPO which produces biodiesel.

Thanks and best regards,
Govind.

In my country Nigeria, the palm oil is also in abundance. It will be interesting to see how the biodiesel Industry in Malaysia plays out. I'll definitely be checking to see what we can learn, especially in the areas of required facilities and available market.
