Sage Promaster Sdn Bhd was incorporated in 2011 by a team of engineers and scientists that aspired to improve and optimize the scheduled waste management practices and landscape in Malaysia. In 2012, the founders of the company collaborated with a leading university in Malaysia to jointly undertake a Research & Development (R&D) program. The R&D was to characterize, simulate, and validate the potentials of various scheduled waste generated in Malaysia, which were recoverable of its latent energy for useful purposes.
Upon the successful R&D, the company continued to develop its core energy recovery technology, culminating in a (method for production) patent granted by the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO) for the use of scheduled waste in the manufacture of a green fuel – Sagefuels®, to replace COAL – a polluting, non-renewable, greenhouse gases emitting, fossil fuel.
The proprietary recovery technology, validated by the patent gave birth to a ‘circular economy’ journey, where scheduled waste could be re-purpose as a raw material in the manufacture of an industrial grade (green) solid fuel, to replace COAL. This discovery led to an optimized solution for scheduled waste management as opposed to the unsustainable practices i.e., landfill, incineration, and other cradle to grave practices. Sage Promaster, licensed by the Malaysian Department of Environment and the Ministry of International Trade and Industry is a pioneering scheduled waste recovery company providing a sustainable (cradle to cradle) solution, for the growing and broad-based manufacturing sector in Malaysia.
Sage Promaster’s recovery technology and the manufacture and supply of Sagefuels® - from its low carbon footprint facility has successfully helped mitigate the use of COAL in coal intensive industries in Malaysia and abroad since 2013. The company meets the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) with its recovery technology and facility.
Sage Promaster incorporates the Environmental, Sustainable and Governance (ESG) framework in its business activities and is certified a Social Enterprise by the Ministry of Entrepreneurial Development and Cooperatives.
Sage Promaster continues to research and innovate its technologies, processes and the end product attributes for economic, social, and environmental benefits. At the core of its pursuit is to help Malaysian manufacturing industries reduce their carbon footprint with its cradle-to-cradle solution. The over-arching goal is to help make Malaysia become a carbon neutral nation by 2050.
