“We see potential new revenue for biomass and we are focusing on green technology, how to convert biomass, empty fruit bunches into energy” said Sabri. Last year Felda Palm Industries Sdn. Bhd. a subsidiary of FHB, signed an MOU with Premium Renewable Energy to build a bio-oil plant based on pyrolysis technology in Felda Sahabat in Sabah.
“In Sahabat we intend to have another big one, 30MW, involving new technology which is to turn biomass into bio-oil pyrolysis. It is a joint-venture project. In the Felda group, the new business is to monetise the by-products apart from using them as compost."
