KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 23 (Bernama) -- Malaysia’s Green Space Industries Ltd has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the United Kingdom’s Cranfield University and Levidian Nanosystem Ltd to collaborate on the advancement of rubber technology, said the Malaysian Rubber Council (MRC).
MRC chief executive officer Nor Hizwan Ahmad said the advanced technology converts harmful methane gas into more environmentally friendly graphene when combined with natural rubber, the resulting material that is proven to be more sustainable and durable.
"This collaboration has indirectly encouraged the advancement of rubber technology so that innovation can be applied to redefine the future of rubber applications,” he said in a statement.
“Malaysia, as a leading country in rubber technology, will gain profits through the commercialisation of high-performance rubber products in addition to opening new markets and further increasing the global value chain of the Malaysian rubber industry," MRC said in the same statement.
Nor Hizwan noted that via the development of contemporary rubber materials that are formulated through the infusion of graphene and latex, the application can be carried out comprehensively in industries involving earth resources and the aerospace environment.
"We will be more progressive towards unlimited progress with the wealth of rubber resources that we have - from plantations to aerospace.
"Humans have been exploring all corners of the earth for a long time, and now it is time for the rubber industry to move beyond borders," he added.
