Sabah going Green

It's good to hear from the Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman that Sabah is leading the way in renewable energy with various sustainable power generation projects. For instance, the state owned POIC Sdn Bhd was developing a RM280 million biomass plant together with a South Korean firm at Lahad Datu Plam Oil Industrial Cluster. The project will use large quantities of biomass which is from oil palm waste for generating power, this will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make good use of the oil palm waste. The project is expected to be commissioned by late 2012. This project will make Sabah a role model for clean energy in South-East Asia.

Other than that, Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB) was also working towards generating more than 100 mega watts of power through renewable methods. They are currently leading the off-takers in Malaysia on renewable energy with 32 megawatts capacity and represented 3% of Sabah's power generation share against the national average of less than 0.5%

Datuk Musa Aman also said that the Sabah Economic Development Corporation has recently signed and MoU with a firm to venture into the production of organic fertillisers from oil palm waste, recycling of waste water and recovery of useful by-products from the oil palm industry.

Sounds like a good potential for green technology in Sabah, doesn't it?

Memang bagus jika Sabah boleh berjaya penjana elektrik dengan cara hijau seperti menggunakan sisa-sisa kelapa sawit. Tidaklah membazir kalau begitu.

Sabah memang ada banyak potensi menjadi negeri hijau jika usaha seperti ini diteruskan.

kerajaan negeri tidak perlu mencontohi negeri atau negara maju yang lain jika hendak memajukan negeri ini.. biarlah sabah mengetengahkan konsep hijau dalam setiap aktiviti pembangunannya..

semoga Sabah dapat mengaplikasikan sepenuhnya teknologi hijau bagi memelihara alam sekitar dan alam semulajadi serta meminimumkan kesan negatif daripada aktiviti manusia.
