Stamicarbon's Sustainable Fertilizer Technologies Seminar in Kuala Lumpur attracts over 150 industry delegates
Over 150 representatives from the region's petrochemical and fertilizer sectors met in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia earlier this week to discuss pathways to make their industries more sustainable and competitive.
The Sustainable Fertilizer Technologies Seminar followed by a networking luncheon was organized by Stamicarbon in cooperation with the Malaysian Petrochemicals Association (MPA), Fertilizer Industry Association of Malaysia (FIAM), and Oil and Gas Asia (OGA) trade show.
The seminar was also well attended by representatives from the government, regulatory bodies, and corporate sectors from the region.
With the effects of climate change and rising food security concerns, the event covered various topics including insights into new technologies and optimizing fertilizer plants. Under the spotlight was "green" ammonia which is gaining attention and interest as a solution to produce carbon-free fertilizers and a clean fuel source for shipping.
Speakers also highlighted the role of smart fertilizers in reducing Malaysia's dependence on imported fertilizers and increasing crop yields for farmers.
Mr. Philip Kong, Vice President of MPA, and Mr. Leong Kin Kieat, Chairman of FIAM, were joined by senior executives Dr. Luciano Giorgi (Vice President, Malaysia Region, Maire) and Stephen Zwart (Vice President Licensing, Stamicarbon) who delivered speeches as part of the event.
