Full Recovery

General Description

Beginning of year 2018, PAT (Pernilaian Asas Tapak) application is no longer required, instead it was replaced by TOR.

There are 4 stages of mandatory requirement that are required to be fulfilled.  Each of every stage detailed documentation preparation and submission to DOE for approval before next stage can be proceeded. Presentation to DOE is very much required especially during TOR and EIA.

  1. TOR (Terms of Reference)
  2. EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment)
  3. Section 19 (Permit-to-Install)
  4. Section 18 (Permit-to-Operate)

TOR (Terms of Reference)

Description & Work Itinerary

This is the detailed and throughout version of assessment by DOE. The area of detailed assessment involves system/machinery operability matters, material storages, containment area, material process flows & mass balances, non-recycled materials/by-products disposal & management, incoming material sources, transportation & logistical issues, air pollution & liquid effluent treatment & control, etc.

The following general documentation will required for TOR evaluation at DOE :

Proof of Business Operation

  1. Land title.
  2. Company/Business registration.
  3. Proof of ownership of the proposed premise.
  4. Statement of need/justification of the proposed project (refer to MIDA submittals, if any).
  5. Local authority approved architectural drawing.

Business Plan/Written Proposal

  1. Scheduled waste code(s) involved.
  2. Plant capacity & storage capacity.
  3. Details on raw material (flammable, non-flammable), chemicals used, final products and by-products for the proposed project; including maximum throughput, maximum storage volume on site, types of storages, capacity of respective storage devices, MSDS.
  4. Process flow & mass balance diagram (including all the controlled operating parameters, and ).
  5. Details of storage facilities for raw materials, products and generated wastes (including [i.] storage mode, i.e. pile yard, jumbo bag, drum, etc., [ii.] dimensions, [iii.] storage capacity).
  6. Details of the proposed plant equipment and machinery.
  7. Future expansion plans.
  8. Key, location & site plans (Drawing).
  9. Proposed equipment & material arrangement layout, including elevation views (Drawing).

Document Submission

Those document outlined above (at B. Information/Document Required) has to be compiled and submitted to DOE Regional Office to study and evaluate. The outcome will determine whether the proposed project is feasible to be conducted at the proposed area/premise. If proposed project is NOT accepted, most likely the proposed location is not suitable, etc., then change of proposed location is required.

Site Visitation

If the proposed project is viable & accepted, TOR/EIA Officers will be coming to proposed premise for site evaluation and comments. Project owner(s) and appointed TOR/EIA consultant(s) have to be available to assist TOR/EIA Officers site visitation.

Duration: 1 day (normally)

TOR Clarification Meet

After site visitation, there will be a TOR Clarification Meet at DOE Regional Office with TOR/EIA Officers for detail proposal presentation and/or clarification on Officers’ comments.

Duration: 1 day (normally)
