MPSJ introduces Biomass Centre to students

SHAH ALAM, JUL 10: Committed in making its mission, Biomass City, a success, the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) has organised the Organic Waste Compost Bin Programme in several schools in its jurisdiction.
Its Acting Yang Dipertua, Mohd Zulkurnain Che Ali said, the initiative is taken as a step to introduce MPSJ Integrated Biomass Centre to teachers and students.
He said, students involved will also be brought to visit the Biomass Centre in Bukit Puchong.
“This programme is also a module to create awareness to schools in MPSJ on how to turn organic waste into compost using the bins provided for free,” he said.
He added that the programme is a part of the Sekolah Sejahtera MPSJ Award Programme which is run throughout the year.
Earlier, MPSJ had taken the initiative to develop the Biomass City by selecting Serdang as the pilot project in 2012, through the 2030 Green City Action Plan.
Since fully operating in 2013, the operation centre in Bandar Bukit Puchong has successfully produced green products through two concepts, waste-to-wealth and waste-to-energy.
SelangorKini was made to understand that the centre has successfully processed 50.44 tonnes of organic waste through the waste-to wealth concept consisting of 34.65 tonnes of farm waste, 7.22 tonnes of dried leaves and 8.57 tonnes of food waste throughout 2014.
As a result of its relentless effort in 2015, MPSJ became the only local authority to receive the Green World Ambassador 2015 award.
The double success came after it won the Green Apple Environment Award 2014 for its green initiatives as well as the MPSJ Biomass Centre.
