Renewable Energy

 

In line with Malaysia’ vision towards renewable energy development, GTP operates with the integration of various renewable energy sources.

The shift in Malaysia’s renewable energy policy to include renewable energy (RE) sources as the fifth fuel in its Eighth Malaysian Plan (2001-2005) is being motivated in part from concern by the Malaysian Government about the pollution that is caused by the generation of electricity from the burning of fossil fuels.

Bio-Integrated ZeroWaste Concept

Renewable energy generation methods will be combined to provide clean and green energy to the GTP. Waste to Energy (WtE) which are biomass-fired power plant and biogas will also be implemented into GTP. The resulting electricity generated from every source below will be used to run the factories within the GTP (Self-sustained energy generation), and supplement any other energy requirements within the park.

Alkaline Recovery Plant
Chemicals used in the pulping process can be recycled in the Alkali Recovery Treatment Plant. This facility will also be able to recover a small amount of renewable energy (5,000,000 W).

number-16

Biomass-fired Power Plant
Energy pellets will be produced by utilizing solid waste from the pulp & paper production process. Biomass-fired power plant will produce clean energy in the form of electricity by burning GTP solid waste. (30,000,000 W)

number-17

Solar & Wind Energy
Solar energy (20,000,000 W) and Wind energy/Turbine (small scale)

number-18

Biogas Plant
Biogas plant will utilize wet waste such as Palm Oil Mill Effluents (POME) and sludge from WWTP, which will then be converted into energy through anaerobic digestion. (5,000,000 W)

number-19

Hydropower
Hydropower will be generated on a small scale by captures the “impulse” of flowing water and converts it to electricity. Wastewater generated from the GTP’s manufacturing processes will channel into the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) and after being processed will then be channel into the wetland areas of the park There are two wetland areas in the Green Technology Park (GTP) which are interconnected via small streams and lead to a recreational lake.
