Company Background

Syngas Sdn. Bhd. ("Syngas") is a subsidiary of Mensilin Green Energy Sdn. Bhd. ("MGE"). Via MGE, the technology will be deployed in the United Kingdom and Europe and explore the possibility of implementing projects in those countries.

SYNGAS SDN. BHD. ("Syngas") was a Manufacturing and, Research and Development company located in Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia. 

Its previous holding company, Saham Utama Sdn. Bhd. ("SUSB"), was involved in high-end plastics manufacturing and fabrication industry since the inception in early 1980s under their subsidiary company, Polymal Marketing Sdn. Bhd. ("PMSB").

PMSB specialized in manufacturing of plastic extrusion sheets, and its main commercial products being PMMA (Acrylic), Polycarbonate, Polypropylene, Polystyrene, ABS, MS Copolymer, Polyethylene and various other Engineering Thermoplastics.

At its factory in Port Klang, Malaysia’s main sea port and gateway to global destinations, extruded plastics are thermoformed and value added to produce products like, Anti-Riot Shield, Baby Cot, Roofing Profiles, Signage, Bathtubs, Lightning Diffuser, Photo Frames, Shower Screen, Ballistic Target Boards, Containers, Gifts Items, Food Trays and Display Panels.

Capped with excellent quality control systems, initially setup by a world renowned Japanese plastics manufacturer, SUSB has the technology know-how and experience to provide solutions to cater to customers’ needs and requirements.

Since 2007, SUSB has diversified drastically and been involved in research and development of petrochemical products. With high interest in developing renewable energy products, SUSB started to experiment with various waste plastics in order to recycle them into value added materials which can be commercialized.

In 2009, SUSB discovered multiple ways to convert waste plastics into petroleum based products such as petrol, kerosene, and marine bunker fuel and diesel oil. It started to develop a system which could turn Polypropylene, Polyethylene and Polystyrene into Diesel-like fuel.  

Embarking on that interest, SUSB collaborated with several technologists in fabricating a miniature refinery to convert hydrocarbon gas into diesel oil.

In the same year, 2009, SUSB was granted RM 1.1 million of the Innofund Grant Scheme by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) to produce a 1 ton pilot plant in Sungai Batu Pahat, Perlis. The project was successful and SUSB proceeded for pre-commercialization and development of a 5 ton conversion system.

In October 2011, SUSB was again awarded RM 1.5 million by MOSTI to design, fabricate and develop a 5 tons/day plant to convert waste plastic into Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel Oil which meets the EURO V standards. 

By August 2012, ahead by 3 months from the project timeline set by MOSTI, SUSB completed its project in producing a Green Technology Diesel Oil with low Sulphur and high Cetane Index. The Diesel Oil was tested in a United Kingdom based laboratory and proven for use on-road diesel engine vehicles and generator sets. This innovation was a phenomenal discovery that interested parties from all over the world to come visit and tested the diesel oil. Among companies which have expressed interest  to be appointed as distributors and agents are companies from the United States of America, Canada, Australia, India, Kenya, China and Turkey.

In 2011, SUSB registered Syngas to handle all manufacturing, operations and marketing of Syngas technology.

The Syngas CONVERSION MACHINE, the machine that can convert waste, light Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel has been successfully awarded and registered with the Malaysia Commissioner of Patents and Trade Marks (MyIPO) under Section 31 (2) Patents Act 1983 No. MY-150550-A on 30th January 2014 and registered patents in 60 countries around the world including UK, USA, European Union and Australia.

In 2014, with the success of its technology, Syngas was given the Pioneer Status for 10 years by the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) and a R&D Matching Grant valued up to RM 10 million to further conduct research and development in waste to energy.

In November 2014, the technology was honoured by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation with the prestigious 2014 National Innovation Award. In January 2015, Syngas technology received the Top 30 Catalyst Company award by the Malaysian Green Technology Corporation to honour companies that contributed in Green Technology in Malaysia.

The Syngas machine is now commercially ready to be mass process municipal solid waste ("MSW") plastics from landfills and as such, Syngas was awarded with the Green Technology Fund Scheme ("GTFS") from Malaysian Green Technology Corporation in 2017. 

Syngas Manufacturing plant has been relocated to Gong Badak Industrial Estate, Kuala Terengganu in early of May 2018

Syngas technology development has been supported by the Malaysian Government until its successful pilot roll out in Terengganu. In 15th November 2017 Syngas Sdn Bhd received an invitation from Ireland to showcase the technology as part of the environmental solution to the worsening waste plastic problem

Syngas, on 13th August 2018 received the support of MATRADE to undertake a full feasibility study to establish the pioneer plastic to fuel system in Ireland. This inception report outlines the objectives and methodology as well as expected outcomes of the feasibility study.
