Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)


The company has participated voluntarily in a joint project with the Advanced Oleochemicals Technology Division (AOTD) of the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) to conduct the Life Cycle Assessment on its products. The main objective of this LCA study is to make an available the gate-to-gate life cycle inventory (LCI) for our products so that the data can be calculated for a life cycle impact assessment (LCIA). Environmental consequences from our products can then be estimated using a weight attribution of LCA approach. This project is also undertaken by other oleochemical manufacturers in Malaysia and results from these various LCA studies will form the palm-based oleochemical industry average.
