  Overview  
 

Our palm oil mill, which is operated by RH Plantation Sdn Bhd and located at Lot 65 and part of Lot 58, Bok Land District, Miri Sarawak, has an approved capacity of 384,000MT of FFB per year.

About 2/3 of the FFB processed by the mill are supplied by our own estates, which is expected to increase in the coming years in view of expanding mature areas and young mature trees coming into prime age.

In line with our ongoing initiatives to improve the extraction rate, the mill will continually adopt the best manufacturing practice and latest technology available in the milling industry.

In year 2011, a Gas Engine was installed in the mill to reduce the high diesel fuel cost of the existing diesel gen set. The fuel for the gas engine is obtained free from the effluent pond. Through this, the usage of the diesel can be reduced.

In year 2012, a Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) polishing plant was installed to process the effluent at the final stage of the effluent pond so that the water can reach the required standards set by the Department of Environment (DOE) before being discharged into the river or recycled for cleaning purpose in the mill.
