High-level Seminar on Malaysia Plastics Sustainability Roadmap 2021-2030

June 14th, 2022 – We had been invited to attend a high-level seminar on Malaysia Plastics Sustainability Roadmap 2021-2030 that was taking place at JW Marriot Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. The seminar was attended by the main parties in deciding the future of Malaysia’s plastic economy movement which includes the Ministry of Environment and Water (KASA),  SIRIM STS, Malaysian Plastics Manufacturers Association (MPMA), and many other top company producers in this plastics industry.

The aim of the program is to update on the progress of the roadmap that has been going since 2021, alongside the introduction of new technology in biodegradable products that can be considered as an alternative for single-used plastics. We were as well taking this opportunity to place our brand new biodegradable polypropylene plastic bags on display (refer to images below) as preparation for creating a healthier environment for the sake of our next generation. 

Our biodegradable polypropylene plastic bags has passed the test for BSI PAS 9017:2020 and has proven to have the capability to fully biodegraded in an open air-terrestrial within 6-24 months duration of time. The test is yet believed to be soon recognized and implemented by SIRIM as it is the first test that has been introduced to grade the biodegradability of polyolefins worldwide. We are hoping that the development of the technology in producing better quality plastics will effectively reduce the burden of the government to lead our country into one of the healthiest places to live.
