Selangor Journal:Selangor first state to develop industrial park with mandatory centralised treatment system

SHAH ALAM, Oct 22 — Selangor will be the first state in Malaysia to develop an industrial park that requires industry players to build a Centralised Wastewater Treatment Facility (CWTF) to treat the effluent from industries, said Menteri Besar.

Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said Invest Selangor Bhd was refining the incentive mechanism, based on the concept of industrial park management, to ensure the development of the method practised in developed countries can be achieved.

He explained the move is part of the Selangor government’s efforts to preserve and conserve the environment.

“Based on its identity as a developed state and an industrial-oriented economic power, the Selangor government welcomes investments using the concept of Circular Economy to recycle waste into useful products.

“It also allows for natural resources to be returned into the circular system and reduce the use of new resources,” he said when officiating the 2021 National Environment Day celebration held virtually today.

Amirudin said that to ensure the natural ecosystem is always taken care of, the state has set up a Standing Committee on Environmental Action chaired by Hee Loy Sian, which is responsible for any state development proposals and projects.

He explained that the Selangor Government has also adapted 17 sustainable development goals in accordance with the United Nations (UN) through the Voluntary Sub-National Review report.

“Selangor has also allocated RM360 million in the 2021 Budget for state water resources. We also gazetted the Selangor Water Management Authority (Amendment) Enactment 2020, the Raw Water Guarantee Scheme (SJAM) and created 44 Friend of River locations involving the community.

“Local councils (PBTs) are also actively involved in implementing the smart city and low-carbon city programmes to minimise the effects of global warming and climate change,” he said.
