Who We Are
Borneo Waste Industries Sdn. Bhd. is a Sabah based waste management service provider that was established in November 2013. It has offices in Kota Kinabalu and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Borneo Waste Industries was awarded a 30 years concession to develop and operate the Integrated Waste Management Processing Plant at the Kayu Madang Sanitary Landfill in Telipok, Sabah from April 2018 to April 2048. The Kayu Madang Sanitary Landfill is the central disposal site for waste from Kota Kinabalu, Kota Belud, Penampang, Putatan and Tuaran.
Borneo Waste Industries aims to design, finance, build and operate the Integrated Waste Processing Plant capacity to process up to 800 tonnes per day of municipal solid waste which includes electronic – waste, construction and demolition waste and used tyres. The Integrated Waste Management Processing Plant will be occupying 20 acres within the 115 acre Kayu Madang Sanitary Landfill boundary. Development of the Integrated Waste Management Processing Plant is divided into two phases, Phase 1 and Phase 2. Phase 1 encompasses Base Facilities which includes the material recovery facilities, anaerobic digestion plant, recovered plastics plant, bottled compressed natural gas plant, e-waste recycling centre and refuse derived fuel pellet plant. Phase 1 also includes the construction and the operation of an organic fertiliser plant. Phase 2 consists of the expansion of organic fertiliser plant and installation of rooftop solar panels.
The objectives of the project are threefold: economically viable environmentally conscious and social sustainable. Borneo Waste Industries aims to maximise the recovery of incoming waste into the landfill, to enhance the market for intermediary materials and set a precedent for economically viable waste management projects in Sabah. Other objectives is to prolong the lifespan of the Kayu Madang Sanitary Landfill as well as managing leachate generation in a sustainable manner. In addition, reducing negative social implications of untreated waste such as the landfill odour and pest infestation are also aspirations for developing the Integrated Waste Management Processing Plant.
In the future, Borneo Waste Industries intends to expand its business model to landfills in Peninsular Malaysia and venture into other businesses in the same industry when the opportunity arises. Some of the potential ventures are commissioning of a Waste to Energy gasification plant, generating and supplying electricity to Sabah from biogas, recycling used tyres and construction & demolition waste and producing liquid fertiliser. Furthermore, Borneo Waste Industries plans to develop a solar farm and participate in large scale solar as well as venture into landfill mining in the future.
