Webinar on FAGT Industry Interaction Session 2021

Malaysian Rubber Council has successfully organised a webinar titled “FAGT Industry Interaction Session 2021”. About 110 of our fellow industry members leveraged this comprehensive briefing and acquired valuable insights.

Launched in 2019, Fund for Automation and Green Technology (FAGT) aims to steer the rubber product producers, especially the small and medium-sized industries (SMIs), towards greater automation to enhance manufacturing efficiency and improve product quality. MRC provides grants to eligible projects for the adoption of automation and green technology so that Malaysia’s rubber industry can achieve greater sustainability and alleviate its recurring labour shortage problems.

As part of the ongoing efforts to promote FAGT, the online briefing served as a meeting point and platform for information-sharing between the expert panels of FAGT and the rubber industry. Fellow industry members who attended the webinar were assisted in identifying potential technologies to be adopted under the FAGT programme.

They were also fortunate to sit through presentations by ten speakers, including companies that have completed their projects funded under the FAGT programme and expert panels, who gave insightful presentations on available technologies for solar energy, biomass energy, water treatment and automation in the rubber industry.
