Optimisation of IETS Operation and Compliance to Environmental Quality Act 1974

11 June 2021 | 9:30am – 11:30am

All premises that release industrial effluent into soil or inland waters are required to treat and ensure the effluent being discharged meets the parameters defined in Environmental Quality (Industrial Effluents) Regulations 2009. The operation of industrial effluent treatment systems often presents various challenges to operators. Effective removal of contaminants in effluent requires continuous monitoring and technical knowledge in both operation and testing.

In conjunction with World Environment Day, Geo Alam, in collaboration with Jabatan Alam Sekitar Negeri Perak, has invited two experienced industry practitioners to share a refresher on the requirements of Environmental Quality (Industrial Effluents) Regulations 2009 and how industries can achieve regulatory compliance while maintaining an efficient, cost-optimised operation.

Single-use Plastic vs. Food Waste: Which is in Need of Immediate Attention?

21 April 2021 | 10:00am – 12:00pm 

Plastic pollution has grown to become a major environmental concern, with reports from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation predicting that there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050.

Jabatan Pengurusan Sisa Pepejal Negara has also reported that Malaysians generate 43 million kilograms of solid waste each day. Of these, at least 13% are plastics and 45% being food and organic waste.

During this session, our speakers will discuss the question: between single-use plastic and food wastage, which is in need of immediate attention?
