At present, the Malaysian federal government has called for improvements for the palm oil and agriculture industry as the main objective. This sector is seen as having the most powerfulk prospect in ensuring that the country's economic system would not become much damaged due to global economy recession which previously was heavily depended on the construction and technology industries. While the call pertaining to improvements are increasingly being major concentrated which oversees various corporations turning all their business towards plantation, especially palm oil industry, in a way this could preserve the green area nevertheless looking at other point of view, the area environment may face problems in the facet of uncontrollable environmental impact deriving from oil from palm effluents if no strict enforcement and guidelines are being performed.
Acknowledging the negative affects which may result from this sector, the government has stressed out big t he want of the oil from palm companies to get ISO 14000 accreditation. This move can be considered a strategic way in making sure environmental monitoring is undertaken by these organizations instead of the billions of ringgit that may be loaned by the governme nt just for the reason of performing the mitigation works. Regarding this issue, this kind of study which can be titled while " THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (EMS) PERTAINING TO WASTE TREATMENT PLANT OPERATIONS IN PALM OIL MILLS вЂќ is completed to determine the degree of oil from palm mills' complying to EMS requirements which can be based on the ISO 14000 standard.
The study focuses on the 2 numbers of oil from palm mills which are part of 2 reputable palm oil companies in Malaysia. For this research, main and supplementary data were gathered by questionnaire studies, observation and interviews executed as well as references to the released reports, workshop papers and published ebooks. To support this research, questionnaire survey was also taken on to determine the actual EMS practice and rendering undertaken pertaining to waste treatment plants with the palm oil sector. The thoughts of EMS implementation that have been gathered through structured interview where the outcome was taken seriously analyzed would give clear notion to the reader on the EMS practice and its particular implementation in the palm oil industry.
It can be described that EMS implementation pertaining to the waste materials treatment grow in palm oil mills are undertaken determined by the established ISO 14000 standard. In addition to this, the business of specific Environmental Section to perform total environment monitoring and control has contributed to improvements in monitoring the palm oil effluents which are grouped as timetabled waste. Environmental monitoring, organizing and program has been very long established in the palm oil market; only that prior to the concept of EMS, the implementation of monitoring had not been in a organized organization. We recommend that a research about the same topic being undertaken about other municipalities. In addition to this, comprehensive studies within the waste treatment plant procedure, environmental tests and monitoring methods and EMS types of procedures can also be performed for long term research.

Because the waste materials percentage improved over the years, the government is enforcing regulations to the maximum to be able to ensure that the...
