KOTA KINABALU: Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) is set to become a zero-waste campus with the use of a new waste management technology, its vice-chancellor Tan Sri Prof Dr Abu Hassan Othman said. 

He said this was made possible through the establishment of a business working relationship with Happy Soil Sdn Bhd, a local company specialising in waste disposal technology. 

The signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) near here yesterday marks a milestone in the university’s endeavour towards achieving the desired result, he said. 

The text of his speech was delivered by deputy vice-chancellor (Research and Development) Datuk Prof Dr Kamaruzaman Ampon, who signed the MoU on behalf of UMS while Happy Soil managing director Dr Henry Chok represented the company. 

“Food waste collected within the campus will be processed into compost, which is a useful natural organic substance necessary for plant growth,'' said Dr Abu Hassan. – Bernama
