Corporate Goals of Division

  • To develop new processes and technologies for the processing and utilization of oil palm products

  • To improve production efficiency and quality of products

  • To develop zero discharge and cleaner production technologies

  • To expand and improve current uses of oil palm products

  • To find new uses and applications of oil palm product

:: Scope of R & D

Research Focus of Division|| Focus Projects of Division

Research Focus of Division

  • Palm Biofuel and Biodiesel Programs: The division is responsible for all the research and development of palm biofuel and biodiesel for the country. This includes the development of technologies for the production of palm biodiesel and winter-grade palm biodiesel, characterization and technical evaluation of palm biofuel and biodiesel, development of Malaysian standards for palm biofuel and biodiesel, building the first commercial palm biodiesel plant in Malaysia, etc.

  • Utilization of by-products generated by the palm oil industry as sources of renewable energy. R&D activities focus on identifying the potentials of these by-products. This includes utilization of liquid and solid palm biomass for the generation of energy, reduction of GHG through energy efficiency and environmental management programs, to promote energy efficiency program and to create new business opportunities for the industry.

  • Utilization of palm biomass for the production of value-added products.

  • To develop innovative, environmentally friendly and energy saving technologies for the processing of palm fruits. This includes the introduction of a continuous process for the sterilization of fresh fruit bunch, plant-wide mill automation, a process for the production of shell-free palm kernel, etc.

  • To develop new and innovative technologies for the extraction of phytonutrients from palm oil, palm fatty acid distillate (PFAD) and palm fibres. This includes the production of vitamin E from PFAD, extraction of carotenes and other phytonutrients from palm oil, glycolipids from palm, etc.

  • Process development, process simulation, process design and engineering.

  • Application and introduction of clean and emerging technologies for the processing of palm oil and for the extraction of minor components from palm oil and its products. These technologies include membrane technology for the recovery of minor components from palm biodiesel, short path distillation for the production of carotenes/vitamin E concentrates, supercritical fluid technology for the extraction of palm phytonutrients and nano-encapsulation of palm vitamin E and carotenes concentrates for nutraceutical and pharmaceutical applications.

  • Development of clean catalytic technologies for the production of fine chemicals and energy from palm oil and palm biomass.

Focus Projects of Division


Design, installation and commissioning of the first commercial palm biodiesel plant (capacity: 60,000 tonnes per annum) and low-pour-point palm biodiesel plant (capacity:30,000 tonnes per annum).
