Weng Meng Greentech was established in 2022 as part of a Weng Meng group of companies that value sustainability and circularity by using science-based technology and methodologies to create products that are more environmentally friendly. We started our innovation on the premise that this technology offered unique opportunities and solutions to some of the world’s social and environmental challenges. It resolves a major environmental problem.
Each year, an estimated 120 million tonnes of plantation Oil palms are felled and dumped in landfill. The Weng Meng Greentech team saw that this wasted material could be the solution to the destruction of our planet’s rainforests. We strive to build the best products, with reduced carbon emissions and zero waste. We hope to use our business to inspire and innovate solutions for global environmental concerns and secure long term value for our company.
WM Greentech’s flagship product, LC+, is the embodiment of our innovation. It is a a sustainable material that offers an exciting alternative to rainforest hardwood. It offers aesthetic flexibility and has durable physical properties. It is sourced from discarded plantation oil palm trees, which can be found in abundance in Malaysia, and is widely available all year round.
When oil palm trees are no longer productive, they will be cut down to make room for replanting. We recover these tree trunks and channel them back into production to become multiple high value wood products. By working symbiotically with the natural cycle of palm production, we are able to source a large quantity of sustainable material for the timber, construction and furniture industries.
Undeniably, LC+ is an ingenious result of using circular economy principles to achieve our Vision and redefine growth. Oil palm trunks are commonly left to rot and decompose, chipped as fertilizer, or even burned. By salvaging this waste, we add value to our company portfolio whilst tackling global environmental challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution.
