Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), in a joint collaboration with Nasmech Teknologi Sdn Bhd and Pantai Medivest Sdn Bhd are working mutually towards the innovation of green technology through research, development and in the commercialization of biochar.

The collaboration, made possible through Ker Biochar Malaysia Workshop 2009, was officiated by Deputy Minister of Ministry of Science, Technology & Innovation (MOSTI), Fadilah Yusof at the Mines Wellness Hotel, here in Seri Kembangan.

The event, attended by the Vice Chacellor of UPM, Prof. Datuk Dr. Nik Mustapha R. Abdullah was aimed to promote the innovation of green technology in the handling of material waste through methods of reducing, reuse, recycle and energy conservation.

Fadilah Yusof said the steps taken by these organizations signify the first move in preventing the recent global climate change that made headlines and becoming part of the Malaysia National Agenda.

“If used wisely, the green technology would give high impact on the rapid economic development. The high-carbon Biochar is viewed as an alternative energy resource to support the battle of global climate change,” he says.
