UMPGT puts Sime Motors (M) Sdn Bhd in list

Kuantan - Starting from December 2010, UMP Green Technology Sdn Bhd (UMPGT) has made another achievement by putting Sime Motors Division in our list of scheduled waste collection schedules.

The Sime Motors Division who had 17 branches of service center covering Sime Darby Auto Performance (Porsche), Sime Darby Auto Hyundai, Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (Ford, Land Rover & Alfa Romeo) and Auto Bavaria (BMW & MINI-John Cooper) had offered UMPGT to collect and dispose their scheduled waste.

UMPGT had officially accepted the contract and the agreement which signed by Managing Director of UMPGT, Prof. Dato' Dr. Rosli Bin Mohd Yunus and with our collaborator of UMPGT, Urban Environmental Industries (UEI) who represented by their CEO, Mr. Thomas Tang.

With the enlisting of Sime Motors Division, UMPGT had achieved another milestone of being one of the scheduled waste handler towards recycling activities to support the government who had highlighted the inclusiveness in driving green technology.

Mechanical Tank Cleaning

Layout of Tank Cleaning System

Tank Cleaning Equipments:
- Extraction and suction system for crude oil recovery and transfer
- Heat exchanging system
- Oil supply system to supply cleaning medium
- Jet nozzles
- Nitrogen gas supply system
- Gas monitoring system
- Oil/water separating system, and
- Connecting pipes and fittings

Crude oil, or something similar, is used as the cleaning medium, while hot water as the washing medium. Tank-cleaning equipment, cleaning and recovery tanks are connected through process piping to form a circulation system. Circulated cleaning is achieved with an oil with minimal content of sludge.

"Spent Bleaching Earth" (SBE) Oil Extraction

The SBE Oil Extraction project was adopted from Professor Dato’ Dr Rosli Mohd Yunus’ patented invention (PI 20030197).

Professor Dato’ Dr Rosli created a process to extract solutes from spent absorbent, or from plant materials, by using organic extraction solvent and ultrasonic energy. The technique used in his invention has proven to improve the extraction process by as much as 95 percent.

Hence, the use of such process in the oil recovery industry would prove more beneficial, in comparison to the conventional one. This process has received both national (ITEX 2003 Kuala Lumpur) and international recognitions (SIIF 2004, Seoul, South Korea).

Waste Oil Extraction

The present research and development (R&D) project on Waste Oil Extraction is focused on developing a “Base Oil Recovery Plant from Spent Lubricant Oil using Solvent Extraction Technology”.

The objectives of this project are to develop a pre-commercialization base oil recovery plant – with an annual production capacity of 7,000 metric tonnes – and to patent and market the Solvent Extraction Technology.

This project was assumed from the lab-scale invention patented by Professor Dato’ Dr Rosli Mohd Yunus, which was fully financed by the Ministry of Science, Technology & Innovation under the Technofund Grant.

The Solvent Extraction Technology developed under this project is believed to be superior to the one currently in practice, in terms of product yield and quality. This new technology uses the composite solvent extraction to boost the recovery of base oil while simultaneously expelling impurities in the sludge as by-products. The novel features of this technology include an integrated process of extraction, accelerated flocculation, centrifuged filtration, solvent recovery and short-path distillation for base oil recovery.
