The role of Kenaf

In conjunction with the Dubai Expo 2020, KVG a leader in the Malaysian kenaf industry is representing Malaysia as panel speaking on reducing greenhouse gases using kenaf organic material.

Due to its potential and originality, the corporation is particularly interested in producing the crop on a wide scale; unlike other commodities, kenaf is a practical crop to cultivate.

Furthermore, kenaf biomass appears to have tremendous promise for renewable resources, and the Kyoto Protocol recognises its organic content as useful in mitigating global warming.

The unique characteristics of kenaf allow it to be used as a building component in the Malaysian housing industry.

The Malaysian government has committed RM6 billion to a long-term housing project based on the kenaf-based industrial building concept.

As a result, KVG’s approach in nurturing sustainability enjoys full backing from the Malaysian government.
