A culture of sustainability and innovation
EcoOils was founded upon the principles of promoting environmental sustainability and viability through the recycling of palm oil industry residue. The emphasis on innovation and sustainability has resulted in the discovery and introduction of many value-added products into the market.
The EcoOils Group is one of the business units of Kewalram Chanrai, a group of diversified global businesses and enterprises with a rich history spanning over 150 years. The Group has interests in a diverse range of industries – textiles, automotive, agriculture and organic palm residue recycling.
EcoOils is the result of Kewalram Group’s venture into eco-friendly efforts via palm residue recycling in 1983. As the business grew and more opportunities arose, it became necessary to establish a new entity to handle the burgeoning industry. Thus, in 2004 the EcoOils Group was formed. EcoOils is the extension of the Group’s efforts to develop environmentally friendly products from palm residue while maintaining an eco-friendly front.
To be the leader in the creation of sustainable value through the reuse of renewable residues from the palm industry.
To care for the environment through the use of innovative technology and abiding by the highest standards of quality, both as a supplier and an employer.
What we do
Our core business is the recovery and reuse of waste and residue generated by the palm industry. The collected waste products are then developed into new industrial products. Innovation is an important driving force for members of the EcoOils Group; hence our R&D efforts centre upon this theme. The final products manufactured in our plants are both industrially and commercially valuable, in addition to energy and resource efficient.
The EcoOils Group currently operates three plants in Malaysia (Pasir Gudang, Johore and Nilai, Negeri Sembilan and Lahad Datu, Sabah). There are plans to establish new facilities in major vegetable oil industrial clusters.
