When Business and Research Meet
Friday, April 28, 2017
UiTM Vice Chancellor Yang Bahagia Professor Emeritus Dato’ Dr Hassan Said and JJ-Lurgi's Director of Technology Fredrik Pomrehn finalising the cooperation agreeement.
JJ-Lurgi has approached Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), the largest higher education institution in Malaysia, to cooperate on a competency development programme to improve the fractionation process technology for the edible oil industry.
Detailed discussions have been held between Dr Nornizar Anuar and her team from UiTM’s Department of Chemical Engineering and the JJ-Lurgi team headed by Process Development Manager Tan Hui Ngi and supported by Wong Mun Kit, Process Manager – Edible Oils Technology and Fong Kim Tim, Senior Solutions Engineer. This led to the establishment of a laboratory test programme to further develop JJ-Lurgi’s edible oil fractionation process technology.
Both parties stand to gain from this arrangement, with UiTM obtaining valuable industrial insights and JJ-Lurgi receiving access to world-class research facilities. A signed non-disclosure agreement also protects both parties’ intellectual property.
For JJ-Lurgi, this is the first step in a journey to build synergistic relationships with various partners in academia, in order to drive innovation and grow technical competence within the industry.
