Our Story

ABOUT NEXT GENERATION OIL

Who We Are

Next Generation Oil Sdn Bhd is a Malaysian based company that has developed a commercially viable process for the cultivation of micro algae, on an industrial scale, and the extraction of crude algae oil.

This process has been developed over the past 20 years by Peter Kim, a South Korean chemical engineer. Peter Kim focused on engineering and process innovations and improvements rather than genetic engineering, and as a result developed his Algae-Modular Automated Plantation (“A-MAP”)TM technology, (a combination of patented cultivation and harvesting technologies).

What We Do

Next Generation Oil is setting up the world’s largest Algae-Modular Automated Plantation and crude algae oil extraction facility in Malaysia, using best in class methods to produce a 50% cut of crude algae oil (CAO) and a 50% residual biomass of dry algae cake (DAC).

Why We Do It

Next Generation seeks to aggressively grow its plantation and oil extraction facilities in order to meet the exponentially growing demand for sustainable, efficient, carbon neutral and renewable fuel for the power generation and transportation sectors, and our algae cake as a substitute for paper pulp and animal feed.

The International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC)
is an international certification system covering all kinds of bio-based
feedstocks and renewables.

The objectives of the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) system are to establish an international, practically viable, and transparent system for certifying biomass and bioenergy. With proper certification, ISCC can:
 
  •  Contribute to a reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
  •  Promote sustainable use of land
  •  Promote traceability
  •  Protect natural biospheres
  •  Ensure social sustainability
 Next Generation Oil is the world’s FIRST and currently the ONLY algae cultivation company to be certified by the ISCC.
