LWH BIOMASS SDN. BHD.
LWH Biomass formerly known as Eun Jin Tech Sdn. Bhd. was incorporated under the applicable law in Malaysia on 16 June 2004 by two founders namely Ong Swee Eng and Tan Bee Choo. On 25 April 2016, as part of the group reorganization process, our management team Mr. Kung Eng Wah ("Mr. Kung") and Mr. Ooi Gim Hooi ("Mr. Ooi") were appointed as directors of the subsidiary. On the same day, the subsidiary changed its corporation name to LWH Biomass Sdn. Bhd.
WHAT IS BIOMASS POWER?
Biomass power is carbon neutral electricity generated from renewable organic waste that would otherwise be dumped in landfills, openly burned, or left as fodder for forest fires. This organic waste can include scrap lumber, forest debris, agricultural harvest waste, and other industry byproducts that serve no other purpose. Biomass power uses these natural materials to generate clean, renewable electricity, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Biomass offers significant other environmental and consumer benefits, including improving forest health, protecting air quality, and offering the most dependable renewable energy source.
As organic waste decomposes it slowly emits methane gas and carbon dioxide. Biomass power plants take advantage of this process to turn waste into fuel that generates electricity. During the electricity generating process, the methane gas is eliminated, and carbon dioxide emissions are greatly reduced. Biomass actually reduces greenhouse gases. In fact, the use of biomass power removes over 30 million tons of carbon dioxide annually. It accomplishes this remarkable feat both by replacing fossil fuels and by preventing the release of greenhouse gases from organic waste that would otherwise decompose in the open. Burning fossil fuels only adds carbon dioxide to the atmosphere that was already sequestered deep in the earth.
ADVANTAGES OF BIOMASS POWER
Biomass Power Improves Forest Health and Air Quality
The biomass power industry removes over 68.8 million tons of forest debris annually, improving forest health and dramatically reducing the risk of forest fires. In addition, the biomass industry diverts millions of tons of waste material from landfills and open burns. Biomass power plants eliminate the need for frequent open burns of agricultural waste and forest slash, while continuing to offset the use fossil fuels that produce smog and acid rain. In this way, Biomass power greatly improves air quality.
Biomass Power is Steady and Dependable
Because it is not affected by changes in weather or environmental conditions, Biomass power is an extremely reliable renewable energy source. Biomass can produce a steady and dependable flow of electricity 24 hours a day, and seven days a week. The reliability of biomass power allows local utility companies to easily and efficiently add biomass to their baseload supply to meet growing energy demands. Currently, the biomass industry generates 15 million mega-watt hours of electricity annually.
