RESEARCH & INNOVATION

Tremendous efforts have been carried out by JTKK staff members to empower significant research activities which include conferences, grant applications, engagement of JTKK research with local communities e.g. school students. These research activities have been conducted not only for gaining novel knowledge on science related to chemical and biotechnology fields, but also to fullfill  the social responsibilities towards local community, as well as environment.

Research and innovation activities compromises the followings: 

  1. Grant application
  2. Attending conferences (local and international)
  3. Exhibition 
  4. Competition (collaborated experts from JTKK academicians and local school students)

Innovative Product Silver MedaL
Presenter: Sharfina Mutia Syarifah & Amir Hamzah
Group: Ashuvila Mohd Aripin, PM Dr. Angzzas Sari mohd Kassim, Nadiah Ishak, Sharfina Mutia Syarifah, Amir Hamzah

The work of novel bacteria enzymes isolated from termite and sago worm guts on the oil palm biomass sample which could remove the lignin structure (biodelignification). This project purposes a new pulping process replacing the conventional method using chemicals and mechanical pulping in the production line of paper and pulp industries. This is to promote economical and greener technology to the world hoping to collaborate with the future industries in Malaysia in the production with new source and method.
