INTERACTIVE: Identified as source of plastic waste into the sea, Klang River faces major cleanup


Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari, together with Selangor State Industry and Commerce Committee chairman Datuk Teng Chang Khim and State Tourism and Environment Committee chairman Hee Loy Sian on the Interceptor.

PETALING JAYA: Before 2016, a boat could not travel for more than 500m along the Klang River before it got stalled, its motor stuck with plastic and other floating waste.

“Today, we can travel the entire length from Pangkalan Batu to Port Klang without stopping. This is a great indicator that most of the waste is being caught by our seven log booms and the Interceptor, ” said Landasan Lumayan Sdn Bhd managing director Syaiful Azmen Nordin.
