PUTRAJAYA: Blue Snow Consulting & Engineering Sdn. Bhd. (Blue Snow) has produced an innovative nano liquid graphene base to replace water as the medium in the commercial and cooling system besides the ability of the substance to be used in all centralised air conditioning to reduce the usage of energy.
Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) Datuk Seri Dr. Adham Baba said, his technical visit to Blue Snow was to value the innovative product produced by the company.
Dr. Adham Baba was accompanied by MOSTI Chief Secretary, Datuk Zainal Abidin Abu Hassan and Group Chief Executive Syarikat Nano Malaysia Berhad (NMB) Dr. Rezal Khairi Ahmad.
NMB is an agency under MOSTI that is entrusted with commercial activities and nanotechnology industries.
The Minister added, compared to water, the liquid nano with graphene base is able to increase the transfer of heat and reduces the usage of energy (k Wh) to an average rate of 20 to 30 per cent and the carbon release is reduced drastically.
“This is in line with the government’s initiative to address the climate change issue and becoming a neutral carbon nation towards year 2050. Besides being able to save costs and investments’ returns in three years time the nano liquid will not leave behind installation traces because this substance is still using the existing pipe infrastructure,” Dr. Adham said in a statement here today.
Dr. Adham said: “As an effort towards making Malaysia as a high technology and fulfilling sustainability, the government is committed to use this technology to reduce the real energy that has been borne by commercial companies and other big entities as well as the product and services offered are more competent besides contributing to the reduced carbon traces that is targeted by the nation.”
This project is developed by Blue Snow under the National Graphene Action Plan (NGAP) 2020 with the cooperation of NMB being the main agency in Malaysia. This is in line with the effort towards commercialisation and industrialisation of nanotechnology via development cooperation model
According to Dr. Adham the cooperation started in 2018 with Proof Concept level until the Up Scale level that is being implemented now.
Meanwhile Dr. Rezal said, the commercial potentials of nano liquid with grapheme base had been identified as one of the five main applications under NGAP in 2014.
He said, the market size for the heat transfer liquid for Malaysia in 2024 is estimated RM71.3 million while for Asia-Pacific (APAC) markets USD1.253 billion. –Malaysia World News
