PETALING JAYA: Iskandar Regional Development Authority (Irda) has inked a deal with integrated wastewater treatment solutions provider Ronser Bio-Tech Bhd for the latter to provide waste management in Iskandar Malaysia.

Irda chief executive Datuk Ismail Ibrahim said the collaboration was timely as Iskandar Malaysia was developing rapidly by global standards since its inception eight years ago.

“This is one of Iskandar Malaysia’s initiatives towards achieving its objectives in reducing carbon intensity emissions by 50% through its Low Carbon Society Blueprint, with the emphasis to create a healthy and safe environment for better quality of life,” he said.

He said the waste management industry could potentially benefit the economy by generating income, apart from creating job opportunities and develop more high-skilled workers.

“This is also in line with Iskandar Malaysia’s emphasis on inclusiveness as well as sustainability by providing the added value that will certainly benefit the society as a whole,” he said.

Meanwhile, Ronser chairman Woo Min Fong in her speech said that the company was fortunate to be given the opportunity by Irda to demonstrate its technology through the deal on three specific projects.

“We have finalised the lease of a factory of 12,000 sq ft in Frontier Industrial Park at Maju Cemerlang, Ulu Tiram, to set up the production facilities, of which a production value of RM100mil is expected for the local and export market in three years,” she said.
