“Green business does not just happen. It requires effort, attention, planning and a lot of patience. Going green has been an initiative I take pride in, as it demonstrates our organization’s commitment to sustainability. I have no doubt our employees, investors and partners will appreciate the changes that we are making.”

– Navin Kumar, Managing Director

“Waste is a man-made concept.  In nature, there is no waste: every time waste is generated, an organism evolves to utilize that piece of waste as a feedstock.”

The idea of green chemistry relates to a product’s entire life cycle, from its design, raw material usage, production, utilization and all the way to disposal. At Ova Chem, we are focused on developing high performance, sustainable, environmentally-friendly chemicals from plant and organic waste materials.

Tomorrow’s Chemistry Today – a tagline we adopted to meet the interests of consumers as well as the need for a sustainable future.

With a state-of-the-art Research & Development center based in Kuala Lumpur enhanced by a group of ambitious chemists, we pride ourselves in providing true technical expertise in ‘Green’ chemical solutions.

Our lean manufacturing plant is capable in manufacturing up to 12,000 MT reacted products a year, with plans for multiple boutique manufacturing plants upcoming within the South East Asia (SEA) region. We believe in localizing and decentralizing manufacturing facilities for greater eco-system sustainability.
