Help us reach our target!

 

A group of 20 student volunteers from the University of Nottingham, Malaysia Campus along with medics and engineers have come together for the greater good to implement the Water4Power project organized by Engineers Without Borders, Malaysia (EWB-Malaysia).

 

Engineers Without Borders is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the lives of underprivileged community through sustainable engineering solutions. Our vision is to provide access to basics namely water, food, shelter, energy, education and healthcare to all Malaysians. Water 4 Power focuses on providing lighting and electricity to the Bidayuh community of Kampung Sapit, Sarawak.

 

The Orang Asal of Kampung Sapit, Sarawak is very much dependant on diesel generators as the main source for electricity. This mode of energy supply is not only costly to the local aborigines, but degrading to the environment as well. Thus, Water4Power initiates to build a micro-hydro generator as an alternative for more sustainable electricity supply solution. Other than that, we are also addressing the importance of education, healthcare and waste management to the local community.

‘Waste to Wealth” project by EcoSolution

“WASTE TO WEALTH” is one of project under Student-Initiated Environmental Project Competition that known as a SIEPC. This project are planned by a EcoSolution group that consisted of three students from different faculty in University Putra Malaysia, whose are Fitryaliah binti Mohd Shahli and Mas Izzuawanie binti Abdul Hamid from Faculty Environmental Studies and Nur Hidayah binti Musa from Faculty of Biotechnology.

Nowadays, as we know, cooking oils are widely used in Malaysia especially in preparing food. Did you realize that there are almost 12 gallon liters of cooking oil are generated from each home per year? Used cooking oils are usually being disposed directly to the sink or drains. This bad habit of disposal can cause waste to congeal and block public sewers. The backed-up sewage can then spill into rivers and streams. Untreated sewage effluent and waste oil in the water causes oxygen levels to drop drastically, sewage fungus covers the bed of the watercourse like a blanket and in more severe cases the river can no longer support fish, insects and animals that live in and around the water. Used cooking oils from commercial premises be disposed of with the general waste or discharged to the sewer. Due to this issue, we are trying to initiate simple project to recycle the used cooking oil into beneficial product. Therefore, we believed that this project can change the perspectives of people about waste and it’s possibility to be commercialize.

What we going to do are we collect the used cooking oil from the outlet and the home and we make it commercialize product, which is attractive candle, from the used cooking oil. We are given one month to do this project. Our objectives are:

• To reduce the amount of used cooking oil that will be discharge directly into the drain.
• To create awareness among UPM people especially food seller.
• To educate the people about proper management of used cooking oil.
• To prevent environmental pollution.
• To enhance the creativity to create a new high value product from waste.

Through the usage of the bag, the students can keep some of the most valuable recyclable materials such as aluminium tin cans and plastic bottles in a convenient compartment in the bag. Plus, the Portable Recycling Bag was also aimed to bring the students closer to the usage of green products in their lifestyle.
