KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 10): Nextgreen Global Bhd (NGGB) held a product launching ceremony on Oct 6 in conjunction with the International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference Malaysia 2023 (IGEM).

In a statement last week, NGGB said IGEM was organised by the Ministry of Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change (NRECC) and Malaysian Green Technology and Climate Change Corporation (MGTC).

The ceremony showcased NGGB’s new environmentally friendly tissue paper and pulp moulded (food grade) products made from empty fruit bunches (EFB).

The EFB pulp was produced using the breakthrough Preconditioning Refiner Chemical-Recycle Bleached Mechanised Pulp (PRC-RMBP) technology.

NGGB managing director Datuk Lim Thiam Huat said the effective utilisation of EFB as the material for tissue paper and pulp-moulded products aligns with NGGB’s direction to contribute substantially towards a greener global economy by accelerating the national sustainability agenda and the world’s transition to green and sustainable products.

“Notably, our EFB virgin pulp and paper is certified with SIRIM Eco-Labelling Scheme and MyHijau certification by MGTC.

“This evidences our pursuit towards creating a sustainable circular economy. We remain committed towards the transformation of oil palm biomass into various downstream products,” he said.
