In 1985 industry solid waste from the Malaysian palm oil milling industry is estimated to be 8.1 million tones. Efficient waste utilization technologies are therefore highly desirable to meet increasingly stringent environmental regulations. In order to overcome the problem, the technology of utilizing the solid wastes as the fuel to the boilers and incinerators was adopted. However, such processes of course have their associated duty of atmospheric emission and it is the objective of this paper to discuss the context of milling air pollution control practice in compliance with the Malaysian’s Environmental Quality (Clean Air) Regulation introduced in 1978.
