Title : Optimization of new roof design of the low cost home (PPRT) in tropical climate by using simulation.
The Government has implemented specific development programme such as “Hard-Core Poor Development Programme” (PPRT). The new PPRT house initiated by the government is not only small but has heat-trapping zinc roofs and concrete walls. This house indicated uncomfortable condition compare to the existing houses. Unfortunately, the architectural design solutions do not permit good passive cooling for thermal comfort. This can be illustrated by the high indoor temperature experienced during the day time.

Title : Development of pellet from oil palm empty fruit bunch & Acacia mangium for green energy source.
Pelleted fuel can be made from saw dust (wood pellet), empty fruit bunches, palm kernel shells, coconut shells, tree tops, branches discard and other lignocellulosic materials. Utilizing the oil palm empty fruit bunches (OPEFB) and Acacia mangium as energy feedstock may promote replacement of fossil fuel and consequently address the issue of waste management. It is also expected that the usage of OPEFB can solve the environmental problems coming from organic wastes and the supply of Acacia mangium can be found mostly in Sabah because of its life short rotation. The main objectives of this research are to prepare the OPEFB and Acacia Mangium pellet without using synthetic adhesives, determining the pellet optimization manufacturing condition, to study the physical, mechanical and chemical properties and determining the calorimetric value of the pellet for green energy source.
