NEW YORK, and SINGAPORE, Aug. 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PHI Group (Pink Sheets:PHIL), a U.S. public company engaged in energy and natural resources, announced today that its Chairman and CEO Henry Fahman will be a speaker at the 3rd Oleochemicals Outlook Conference to be held August 26-27, 2015 at the Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia.
The Company has partnered with Fusion Crest Sdn Bhd, a Malaysian company, to jointly set up an oleochemical plant in Johor, Malaysia. The new plant will capitalize on innovative proprietary patents with processing techniques that can convert non-edible oils or fatty acid distillates into value-added oleo chemical products, such as C-16 palmitic acid, C8/C10, C-12 lauric acid, C-14 myristic acid, methyl ester, methyl sterate/olate, refined glycerin and residue oil. The plant will utilize equipment from Sulzer Chemtech, a Swiss company (http://www.sulzer.com/en/).
The oleochemical project requires US$ 15 million in capital investment to process 120 tons of fatty acid distillates per day. Starting the second year of operation the plant is expected to generate about US$ 73,400,000 in revenues and US$ 13,200,000 in profits before taxes per annum, respectively.
The 3rd Oleochemicals Outlook is organized by Centre for Management Technology ("CMT") whose conference programs are tailored for today's and tomorrow's evolving business environment where technology, markets and products continuously change to gain a competitive edge.
