MPA is an industry association representing the petrochemical industry of Malaysia. MPA was formed in 1997 and is registered with the Registrar of Societies in Malaysia. At present, members of MPA include companies engaging in the manufacture and trading of petrochemicals and plastic resins, as well as companies providing services required by the petrochemical industry.

We wish to welcome ALL registered students of Malaysian universities to participate in a Video/Multimedia Competition organised by MPA-PRPG with the theme "Plastic is Valuable, Let's Create Values from Plastic Wastes"

The above theme is chosen with the realisation that in Malaysia, the composition of plastic waste is the second highest of the overall waste generated, with low recycling rate of 20% [JPSPN, 2013].  Inadequate waste facilities due to constraints in funding and manpower, is another major challenge leading to plastic waste leakage into the environment.  Change of the public/consumers' behavioural habit like littering and to have basic awareness on waste segregations, can help reduce the severity of the plastic waste issues.

While all the stakeholders of the entire plastic industry value chains in Malaysia are seriously working towards embracing the "Circular Economy for Plastics", this Video/Multimedia Competition is hoped to be able to trigger creative ideas with effective proposals from the students on minimising/eradicating plastic pollution issues.  This would create public awareness that plastic is valuable and should not become an outright waste.  Greater impacts can be experienced if ideas were materialised at nation-wide platform.

On 12/5/2020 at 9.00 am saw a Donation Handing-Over of Face-Shields from Members of MPMA and MPA, to PPUM (Pusat Perubatan Univ Malaya). Recipient was represented by Professor Tan Maw Pin (Geriatric Medicine), PPUM.

MPA was represented by our Vice President Mr Philip Kong (also representing Lotte Chemical Titan Corp whom contributed 2.0mt of PP CoPo resins).

The contribution is most welcomed by PPUM's Front-Liners considering the regular imported Face-Shields are getting scarcier and costlier to procure from foreign suppliers.

MPMA Members (Northern Branch) jointly contributed an amount of RM55,700 in production costs, moulds,  die-cutting, pet shields and packaging, whilst Lotte Chemicals Titan's contribution is about RM7,000 of PP CoPo resins (for equiv 60,000 pieces of Face-Shields).

This exemplifies MPA Members' commitments to contribute our relevant roles in combating the Covid-19 menace in Malaysia.
