SPC Biodiesel Sdn Bhd is
a wholly owned subsidiary of Sterling Biofuels International
Limited. Its principal activities are:
- Construction and operation of a 100,000 tonnes per annum
biodiesel manufacturing plant in Lahad Datu, Sabah; and
- To manufacture and sell biodiesel to global markets –
in particular, Europe.
The biodiesel will primarily be made from palm olein (refined
form of palm oil).
Despite various logistical challenges that needed to be overcome,
the biodiesel plant was built in less than a year - within
the time frame and under the budgeted cost specified in the
prospectus. SBIL expects to commence production of biodiesel
To this end, SPC Biodiesel has acquired 10 acres of land
within a purpose-built industrial park, known as the Lahad
Datu Palm Oil Industrial Cluster, for the construction of
the plant. This industrial park is being developed by the
Sabah state government on the east coast of Sabah and is dedicated
to palm oil related industries.
