    About JTS Optimax

    Agriculture Biomass is an under-utilized by-product in huge quantities from the food-agri industry. With the right technology, Agriculture Biomass can be reused in the agriculture and energy markets.
    JTS Optimax has designed and patented a process in which Agricultural Biomass can be converted to Activated-char (“AC”), a soil conditioner that can improve soil quality, reduce fertilizer use and produce electricity. JTS Optimax’s patented technology allows for the heavy reduction of green house gas emissions, the production of an agriculturally useful product and generation of electricity, all in one process.

    JTS Optimax Strategic Direction

    JTS Optimax has a operational pilot plant in Johor, Malaysia and is planning to build a large scale commercial plant to produce 1680 MT of Activated-char per annum while generating 5MW of electricity (10%) for both internal use and for sale back to the power grid (90%). The goal is to generate a total of 75Mwh with 15 (5MWh) plants across the country.
