Lepar Hilir Biogas Power Plant Exporting 1.5MW to the National Grid

PROJECT BY CONCORD GROUP

Background of the project

Lepar Hilir Biogas Power Plant located at FGV’s Lepar Hilir Palm Oil Mill in Pahang, is a Waste-to-Wealth project, conceptualized by Concord under the Build-Own-Operate (BOO) model.  This plant treats palm oil mill effluent (POME), captures its biogas for power generation and sells 1.5MW electricity to Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), which is governed by the Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreement (RePPA) under the Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) Scheme, quota issued by Sustainable Energy Development authority (SEDA) Malaysia (SEDA).

Palm oil mills produce effluent which is considered as waste and pollutes the environment. It also releases biogas which contains methane, a greenhouse gas 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide.  The captured methane is used as fuel to generate electricity that is then sold to TNB under the FiT mechanism at a fixed rate.

Concord Group sees the potential of transforming and valorizing the POME into wealth by constructing the FGV Lepar Hilir Biogas plant in Pahang, Malaysia.

This plant is financed, owned, constructed and operated by Concord under the BOO business model and was commissioned in December 2018.   This project addresses greenhouse gas emission issues in the palm oil industry and valorizes it into a form of renewable energy.  The development of the biogas power plant initiated a value chain of activity within the local communities which has a direct impact on three Ps (People, Planet and Profits).  It promotes sustainable practices by performing a truly circular economy business model.

Project execution of this project has also set a new benchmark for this industry.  It was successfully commissioned within 14 months followed by another 3 similar plants within a period of 6 months.  It meets the expectations of all related project stakeholders i.e. shareholders, mill owners, financial institutions, authorities, vendors, state and federal governments.

Contribution of this project to the Industry, Country (Malaysia), ASEAN, World

Concord Group also gives back to the industry and community through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives such as experience-sharing programs on safety and health in biogas plants and providing internship placement opportunities for students.

A higher awareness of the benefits to use biogas as renewable energy has been embedded among the palm oil mill owners, which will bring us to achieve the collective aspiration target of 23% primary energy mix by 2035 within the ASEAN countries, being a region of palm oil producing countries.

This plant will also help Malaysia to achieve its RE target of energy generation mix to 20% by 2025.

In long run, the world will change their perception towards palm oil industry with these sustainable practices.

We capture biogas to reduce the climate change effect of the palm oil industry and simultaneously generate green energy to reduce the dependency on fossil fuel as the world moves towards renewable energy and diversification of energy sources. 

Overall, the success of this initiative has proven that renewable energy can provide a great business model, while contributing to sustainability in this industry.

Sustainable Printing, Rooted In German Quality Standards

SUSTAINABLE PRINTING, ROOTED IN GERMAN QUALITY STANDARDS

Over 375 million empty toner and ink cartridges are thrown away as scrap every
year – this equates to roughly 11 cartridges every second!

The plastics used in printer cartridges are made from engineering grade polymer which has a very slow decomposition rate ranging between 450 and 1000 years depending on the cartridge type.

Generally, cheap new build compatible cartridges end up going straight to landfill at their end of life due to poor low grade plastics and components that are not of high enough quality standard to
reuse.

freecolor printer cartridges are remanufactured, meaning they are reused. Reuse is the highest form of environmental responsibility. It is superior to recycling in that it doesn’t use non-renewable resources to break down plastic and metal.

Using freecolor remanufactured cartridges will dramatically reduce your carbon footprint by preventing tonnes of toxic material going into landfill.

SUSTAINABLE QUALITY

For more than 20 years now, the freecolor brand has been one of the most successful and bestselling brands in the DACH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) – a market where product quality, reliability and sustainability are paramount. In recent years the brand has expanded successfully to international markets.

The freecolor product range has benefited from years and millions of dollars in the development of the most sophisticated manufacturing environment in the document imaging industry. Our in-house R&D and engineering teams ensure that our products meet or exceed OEM performance for yield and print quality through the design and implementation of propriety product development practices, manufacturing standards, process automation, and performance testing protocols.

In state-of-the-art ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified production facilities, empty high-quality OEM cores are given a second life when they go a thorough remanufacturing and testing process to become freecolor toner cartridges. Freecolor offers the broadest and deepest product selection, including cartridges that are compatible with all the leading brands. ISO 19752 (monochrome cartridges) and ISO 19798 (colour cartridges) testing standards for page yield, 100% post-production testing and quality toner powder result in a reliable product, only matched by the OEM.

The entire freecolor range represents a true alternative to the OEM, as it combines OEM performance with environmental sustainability and significant savings over the original cartridge.

CERTIFIED SUSTAINABILITY

Quality and sustainability are amongst the key features of our product.

Over the years, freecolor branded cartridges have acquired a
number of certifications to verify our commitment to both:

SUSTAINABLE LOGISTICS AND PACKAGING

Freecolor packaging uses sustainable materials. Long before the plastic pollution problem made international headlines, the majority of our inserts had been switched from plastic airbags to recyclable cardboard inserts.

Our boxes are also made from recyclable cardboard – and they are tailored to best product fit. This allows for more efficient use of cubic capacity, which results in fewer shipments overall thereby significantly reducing CO2 emissions and fossil fuel consumption – leading to an overall reduction in carbon footprint.

OVERVIEW FREECOLOR ADVANTAGES

 Environmentally Sustainable products: remanufacturing = reuse
 OEM-like performance and quality, but with significant cost savings
o ISO 19752 (mono) and ISO 19798 (colour) testing standards for page yield
o ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified production facilities
o 100% post-production testing
 Several environmental certifications and compliances
 Sustainable packaging and supply chain
 Comprehensive 3 year warranty

Green labels for a green country

Title: MyHIJAU

Country: Malaysia

Political Partner: GreenTech Malaysia

The continuous development of the MyHIJAU Mark is supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH as part of the global programme “Advance SCP”. Advance SCP is implemented by GIZ and UN Environment in eight countries across Asia, Africa and Latin America on behalf of the German International Climate Initiative (IKI) funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety. The programme contributes to the One Planet Network – former 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and production (10YFP).

High energy use, wasted resources and pollution: There are enough reasons for Malaysia to opt for a resource-efficient and low-carbon economy. For that, Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) patterns are key. However, the lack of recognised labels and standards keeps consumers as well as public administration from making informed decisions when choosing one product or service over another in many countries. The reasons for this are usually missing supporting policies, adequate legal frameworks and requirements, public awareness and adequate eco-labelling systems.

The MyHIJAU Mark is Malaysia’s official green recognition of environmentally sound products and services initiated and endorsed by the Government of Malaysia. The Mark brings together certified green products and services that meet local and international environmental standards under one single mark. The criteria for the Mark have been designed taking into consideration not just health and environmental sustainability but also economic feasibility. They are specifically tailored to conditions in Malaysia to ensure that local products and services can actually comply. Companies, which fulfill the requirements and register their products and services, benefit in turn from diverse government incentives, such as Government Green Procurement (GGP) tenders. GreenTech Malaysia, as a not-for-profit organisation under the purview of the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment & Climate Change (MESTECC) of Malaysia, is responsible for the promotion, business advice, verification and monitoring of certified green products and services under the label.

Electric mopeds whirring around the streets of Malaysia are just one example of a certified product. While the vehicles are not yet widely purchased by private companies and private consumers, they are being used in fleets of fast food chains and public authorities, such as the police. Indeed, the state is currently the eco label’s biggest advocate. Malaysia has initiated a Government Green Procurement programme in 2013 as the public sector accounts for about 15% of Malaysia’s GDP. Through a lead-by-example from Malaysian authorities, GreenTech Malaysia hopes that the programme would have a trickle-down effect to influence the private sector, creating both supply and demand in the local market.

Outcomes:

  • More than 4214 items have been registered under the MyHIJAU label.
  • The Government Green Public Procurement (GGP) has been implemented by all 25 Federal Government Ministries including agencies since 2017 and targeting to achieve 20% of GGP by 2020.
