JBAM Inaugurates Its RM172 Million New and State-of-the-Art Scheduled Waste-to-Energy Plant

Bukit Tagar, Selangor, 13 March 2024 – J&T Berjaya Alam Murni Sdn. Bhd. (JBAM), a collaborative venture among Berjaya Enviro Holdings, J&T Recycling Corporation of Japan, and JFE Engineering (M) Sdn. Bhd. is proud to announce the inauguration of its state-of-the-art Waste-to-Energy (SWTE) Plant at Bukit Tagar Enviro Park (BTEP). This cutting-edge SWTE facility, integral to the Sustainable Scheduled Waste Treatment Centre (SSWTC), features a highly efficient thermal scheduled waste treatment system in compliance with the standards set by the Department of Environment (DOE) Malaysia.

The opening ceremony was graced by YBrs. Dr. Norhazni Binti Mat Sari, Deputy Director General of Operation, DOE Malaysia, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Sustainability. Among the distinguished guests were Mr. Sivasuriyamoorthy Sundara Raja, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Investment Promotion and Facilitation, of the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) and H.E. Katsuhiko Takahashi, Ambassador of Japan to Malaysia.

Datuk Wira Arham Abdul Rahman, Chief Executive Officer of MIDA, commended JBAM’s partnership on pioneering waste management solutions in Malaysia, stating, “This venture addresses growing need for comprehensive waste management facilities driven by our nation’s industrial growth. Waste management stands as a critical issue in the country, and the Malaysian Government is proactively enhancing the system to address environmental concerns and promote sustainable waste practices. The SSWTC plant exemplifies JBAM’s commitment to corporate responsibility, setting a benchmark for local businesses to address the scarcity of such facilities. In an era where environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles are paramount, initiatives like these are crucial for promoting sustainable development and effectively tackling climate change challenges.”

In his address, Mr Koh Chee Yong, the Managing Director of JBAM, emphasised the successful realisation of the SWTE project is the culmination of efforts involving dedicated team members, crucial support from government authorities and various stakeholders. This includes DOE, MIDA, Malaysian Green Technology and Climate Change Corporation (MGTC), JFE Engineering, Amita Corporation and the project’s financier, Ambank Group.

The event marks an ultimate milestone in the strategic collaboration between Berjaya Enviro Holding, J&T Recycling Corporation and JFE Engineering (Malaysia) since the conceptualisation of the project back in 2017 and is looking forward to continue the collaboration with JFE in exploring future opportunities for the development of environmental related projects in Malaysia.

“We would like to thank Government Authorities, DOE Malaysia, MIDA, MGTC, Ambank and all our customers from industrial and private sectors for the continuous support and wish to reiterate that the SWTE plant is another significant step by BTEP towards the aspiration of effectively “Setting the Benchmark for Sustainable Waste Management”.”

“The SWTE plant is our newest facility within the SSWTC inside BTEP designed for thermal treatment of scheduled waste with a heat energy recovery system to increase the recycling rate of scheduled waste via our synergistic operations in BTEP.  It is also worth to note that 250 direct jobs have been created to support the management and operation and maintenance of the SWTE Plant,” he added.

BTEP stands as an integrated treatment centre for both municipal solid waste and scheduled waste in Malaysia, reflecting Berjaya Enviro Group’s commitment to advancing the circular economy. Aligned with the Cradle-to-Cradle concept promoted by the DOE, the modern facilities, including the 12 MW Landfill Gas to Renewable Energy plant and the 100% Scheduled Waste to Alternative Raw Material (ARM) Recycling plant, assume pivotal role in transforming waste into valuable resources and renewable energy.

These initiatives resonate with our nation’s sustainability agenda and green technology development goals. Notably, these projects have received significant supports from MIDA, through tax incentives and facilitation of collaborations with various government agencies.

The aspirations set forth in the New Industrial Master Plan 2030, particularly within Mission 3: Push for Net Zero, are significantly bolstered by robust waste management strategies. JBAM aims to foster sustainable economic growth and pave the way for a more environmentally conscious future in Malaysia. This project is particularly warmly embraced, aligning seamlessly with our promoted activities, as underscored by the enhanced tax incentives announced in the Budget 2024. The optimistic anticipation is for the actualisation of additional waste management facilities, fulfilling the objective of efficient waste management and the adoption of high technology and high value-added practices.
