FELDA to harness the power of RE

Turning waste into money. FELDA Holdings, the world's largest estate owner intends to do just that, laying plans to turn as many as 20 of its mills into a sustainable renewable energy (RE) plants. I'm told the plant will garner enough energy from palm oil waste, which are now thrown away, to fire up pallet and fibre plants on its own. Conversion of a single mill into a RE plant will cost Felda RM25 million, with fire fighting specialist Fitters Diversified Bhd leading the greenmill pack.

Find out Why Renewable Energy Important

p.s. Felda dah nak keluarkan bahan bakar lestari. Ada puak tu cuma mampu mengapi-apikan peneroka Felda saja ..

    Felda and Fitters, it is so hard to believe, until I came across this Bursa Malaysia statement. Fitters appoints Zahedi Mohd Zain as director, last week. To those of u who are a bit blur, Zahedi is Dr Mahathir nephew. Get the picture.... Cypark Tan Sri Razali, Fitters Zahedi. All in the family

    ya R E is good but will B N take care of rakyat or give a SWEET deal to the R E companies like how they have given to the coal powered operators such as YTL, Malakoff. and Tanjong. Is Najib going to create R E billionaires like how Mahathir created AK, Syed Mokthar, and Francid Yeoh via generous gas subsifies for their coal plant?

    FELDA memeng terror bang. ISA hebat belaka

  12. Well, hope FELDA will not be caught with its pants down like IOI!! Those guys conceded so quickly that they might just be holding on to "stolen property", which is what Native land in Sarawak is and always shall be!! Such a bloody joke!!

    Tahukah anda Felda kalah 6 -0 kepada Kelantan!

  14. Biomass conversion to energy is one form of recycling energy from the sun. Seems that cost of RE conversion is not cheap. Perhaps felda pilot project on a mill before going full steam.

    Price of oil is up due to protests in the Middle East. Interest in biofuel from jatropha for example can alleviate energy problem in developing countries.

    Fitters is doing the reneable energy business via Fitters NRG, which has been in operations for th past 20 YEARS and it is alreay doing PLASMA GASIFCATION which is not an easy thing to do. Very few companies in Malaysia are ble to do this, which needs much more advnc technology than setting up a mere RE plant

    RE is the way to go.
    A Singapore Co., Colbern Energy is behind the Maju Intan Biomass Power Plant doing the same thing. And they have many more in the pipeline.
    I have always thought,why it takes a Singapore identify the potential of this viable green business in Malaysia.
    Kudos to Felda-Fitters.
