Abstract: Todays, the palm oil milling industry (POMI) has been given serious attention due to environmental issues that arise from the milling processes. Greenhouse gas emission, wastewater quality, waste management plan and energy efficiency are the main POMI issues that contribute to the environmental problems. Critically, this issues could bring a serious impact in sustaining Malaysia palm oil industry in current global economic competitiveness. Moreover, the stringent trading standard for palm oil industry has forced the palm oil producer to align and fulfilling the requirements accordingly. In this short article, the overview of POMI system in Malaysia were elaborated. Besides, the strength and weaknesses of the Malaysia POMI system were highlighted in giving understanding of current condition. Furthermore, the challenge and potential in greening POMI system were discussed in ensuring sustainable future of POMI in Malaysia.
