KUMPULAN FIMA BERHAD
adheres to a “zero waste” policy
by recycling waste and by-products. At our palm oil mill in
Indonesia, oil mill wastes comprising POME and EFB are
converted into organic fertilizer or compost which is then
applied directly at oil palm fields as a source of nutrients
and to supplement fertilizer application. We monitor and
treat all effluent and wastewater before discharging into the
natural waterways. At PTNJL, the organic materials in the
wastewater are broken down by natural activities of anaerobic
and aerobic bacteria. This process eliminates the need to
add chemicals before the water is discharged and this has
resulted in successful fish breeding at the final effluent pond.
The new palm oil mill complex proposed to be built in Miri will
also include a zero-discharge composting plant.

Fish waste generated by fish processing activities at
International Food Corporation Ltd (“IFC”), the
processing plant in Papua New Guinea are
converted into fishmeal which is then sold to companies
involved in the livestock industry.
Elsewhere, hazardous wastes and residual
products recovered from the
manufacturing operations respectively are
disposed of in accordance with stringent
industry standards and statutory requirements.
