Leading global oleochemical producer KLK Oleo – has started its fourth Reactor Specialty Ester Plant (EP4), plus research and development (R&D) centre in Klang, Selangor in Malaysia.
There is an increasing demand for specialty esters driving more investments in production as well as research and development. The newly commissioned plant will be producing ingredients for cosmetics and bio-lubricants.
The new R&D centre in Malaysia will serve as KLK Oleo's international research, development and technology arm to service and support its global oleochemical business. The R&D centre will specialise in organic synthesis, advanced analytical support, and creating high-value applications for oleochemical derivatives. Being a centralised R&D centre, it will be able to bring cutting-edge technology and innovation in the development of oleo-based products and solutions.
KLK Oleo's downstream journey began in 1991 with a fatty acid and glycerin plant in Rawang with a production of 45,000 tonnes per year before expanding to the current 3 million tonnes capacity worldwide with presence in Malaysia, China, Indonesia and Europe.
