EB Group succeed to secure various grants allocated purposely for research and development in environmental biotechnology. The grants come from collaborative work between a few parties such as MOSTI (Top-down. Science funds, and Technofund), SIRIM, MTDC (CRDF). The grants also funded from both local and international companies such as FELDA Palm Industries Sdn. Bhd., Yayasan Pelajaran Johor, National Institute of Advance Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) Ajinamoto company inc (AJICO), Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd (IDEMITSU), Tokyo Electric Power Company TEPCO and etc.
We are proud to have fundamental and commercialization projects to strengthen our research culture and knowledge. Currently, we have two commercialization projects in making (Bioplastics and Biocompost) and two fundamentals project (Biohydrogen and Bioethanol) from those grants. The grants also involved in consultancy work to study and improve current process in selected industry as request from our client.
We are pleased to hold cooperation with any potentials funders or any parties who require our expertise. Our research involves in the any kind of biomass treatment of organic rich. What we stress on our collaborative work is to hold a win-win situation between any parties.
The list below shows our current grants and achievements in-term of research and consultancy work. We looking forward to transfer our expertise and technology to our client.
