Putrajaya researching plastic trash-for-fuel tech


Dateline 2019-07-27, Open Gov:

The Housing and Local Government Ministry is looking to tap the mountains of plastic trash in the country as an alternative fuel and source for producing cement, it was recently reported.

The minister stated that the technology known as processed engineered fuel (PEF) could help the government cut down the illegal plastic garbage pile nationwide, adding that, currently, there is only one known company in the country using PEF.

An industry leader in the manufacture and supply of alternative fuel to the cement industry in Chemor has been using local plastic waste and imported dry materials such as plastic, papers, clothes and wood to process into PEF.
