Kenaf is regarded as an industrial crop, and belongs to family Malvaceae along with hibiscus (Hibiscus hibiscum L.), hollyhock (Althaea rosea), cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.), and okra (Hibiscus esculentus), and is grown commercially in different countries including Malaysia. It is undoubtedly the utmost important cultivated plant for fiber globally, next to cotton, a short day, herbaceous 4000 years old, original crop which is endemic to ancient Africa. It has a precise promising prospect because of its long fibers derived from outer fibrous bark, the bast with great potential in the biocomposite industry. The plants possess a wider range of adaptation to environments, climates, soils, and are rich sources of cellulose compared to any of other fiber plant in profitable manufacture industry. Kenaf reveals a virtuous source of high and improved quality cordage fiber which can be processed into a variety of goods such as fiber and particle boards, fiber-reinforced plastic components, pulp and paper, chemical absorbents, and many others. The tensile strength and modulus of solo kenaf fiber is found to be as high as 11.9 and 60 GPa, respectively. All the components of kenaf plant, leaves, seeds, bast fiber, and core, are of industrial importance. The countless variabilities in the utilization of kenaf only because of its appropriateness as construction material (such as boards of different densities, breadths, along with fire and insect resistance), adsorbent, textile, livestock feed, and fibers in original and reprocessed plastics are demonstrated by many recent studies and research efforts are increasing nowadays. Numerous other kenaf fiber products are also being developed and marketed. Thus, it is important to gather the information of its constituents and the matters governing the composition of the plant.
First World Platinum Capital Group is currently completing preliminary engineering design and financing for power station installation in the Peoples’ Republic of China, as well as, for the establishment of Coal-Fired Power Plant to be fired by coal and co-produce pulp for paper making plus industrial gases. In order to expand its economic development with particular emphasis in the electrification program of the Philippine government, First World Platinum Capital Group is pursuing a contract with other countries.
The objective of First World Platinum Capital Group is to own, finance, construct, and operate the Coal-Fired Power Plant and integrated with a modern pulp and paper plants (Kenaf) along with developing at least a 200-MW coal-fired power plant of substantial capacities at the subject mill premises and license to develop a new coal mine at a location to be negotiated with the Energy and Mineral Resources Division in other countries.
First World Platinum Capital Group has planned a 200-MW coal-fired co-generation complex in a joint-venture with an established chemicals and paper maker in certain region of China. The proposed facilities will re-power the existing plant as well as new installations for making paper, industrial gases, cement castings, a dairy, greenhouses, and a distillery. In a separate Project in an existing undeveloped industrial tract for a certain location in China, First World Platinum Capital Group has planned a 100-MW coal-fired co-generation plant to produce industrial gases,non-wood paper pulp for export, refined corn products, and concrete castings.
First World Platinum Capital Group has teamed up with various leading American, Canadian, European, Chinese, and Japanese and with other international organizations – are vigorously engaging in international business cooperation, focusing on coal-fired power plants, wastes reprocessing and Plasma Gasification projects, pulp and paper and alternative energy as well as related industrial development. Responding to this concern, First World Platinum Capital Group is stepping up its efforts to seek other co-participating technical and financial collaborators which also serve to raise the level of sophistication of the coal-fired power plants, production of environmentally friendly kenaf pulp and paper and waste reprocessing projects as well as alternative energy and other related industries and uplift the living standard of such countries as the Philippines in particular.
Collaboration with the Japan Kenaf Association in developing the applications and market for kenaf pulp in Japan to promote kenaf pulp as an environmentally friendly alternative to produce more pulp from our limited forests as been favorably endorsed by its president, Dr. Hiroshi Inagaki of Kyoto, Japan.
