Huge potential of biomass


FOR many years now, we have been talking about generating economic benefits from the nation’s biomass. We have plenty of such materials in the form of the massive amounts of residue from oil palm such as empty fruit bunches (pic), increasing quantities of municipal solid wastes from towns and cities, and some under-used materials from the rubber, rice and fruits sectors, among others.

Much research has been done on biomass by universities and research institutes in the country, but so far nothing concrete has come out except for a few small demonstration projects here and there.
