A well-oiled machine. 

JJ-Lurgi brings world-class solutions to the oil and fats industry.

Incorporated on 29 February 1992 in Malaysia, JJ-Lurgi Engineering Sdn Bhd  (JJ-Lurgi) is a 50/50 joint-venture company between Jebsen & Jessen Pte Ltd, Singapore, and Air Liquide Global E&C Solutions Germany GmbH, Germany (formerly Lurgi GmbH, Germany). 

JJ-Lurgi is a leading provider of highly customizable technology and solutions for the oil and fats industry, such as oilseeds extraction, edible oil refining, fats modification, oleochemicals and methyl ester (biodiesel). It also provides support for customers starting from the design, through to installation and maintenance of industrial plants and equipment, and after-sales services, which include troubleshooting, plant diagnosis and plant upgrading.

The corporation is able to differentiate itself from competitors by designing solutions that optimize resource utilization, and creating efficient processes that factor in the impact of the plant on people and the environment. With consistent research and development always being the core elements of its deliverables, JJ-Lurgi is constantly able to offer new concepts and enhanced solutions to their customers while ensuring existing technologies and processes are updated and relevant.     

As a competitive edge, they fuse the ability to provide customers with the best of both worlds when it comes to world-class solutions, innovations and technologies, by combining high-quality German technology and R&D with localized industry knowledge coupled with an extensive regional network. This has earned the organization a solid track record of being a reliable partner to renowned industry players in the region and beyond, contributing to their growth and success.

With a strategic presence in Malaysia, Indonesia and China, JJ-Lurgi is able to support industry players within the ASEAN region and China. Owing to its wide network and deep knowledge of the region, coupled with state-of-the-art technology and engineering expertise, the tech leaders are able to respond quickly to customers’ needs and build a sustainable future for their partnerships, while also expanding globally, with new projects in South Asia and the Americas.

From 2017 to 2020, JJ-Lurgi has held significant market share in the South East Asia region, particularly in the oleochemicals industry (74 percent), and have witnessed tremendous growth in the biodiesel, extraction and refinery sectors.

To date, JJ-Lurgi has engineered more than 340 process plants around the world, including the world’s largest biodiesel plant with cold filtration (1,500TPD), three of the world’s largest edible oil refineries (3,500 TPD) and three of the world’s second-largest edible oil refineries (3,000 TPD).

Being a client-centric organization, JJ-Lurgi strives to understand its clients well in order to provide customized sustainable engineering solutions based on their requirements. Its clients range from small and medium industrial players to large industrial conglomerates globally, including Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Cargill, Wilmar, Sinarmas, IOI Group, Felda, KLK Oleo, Apical, Sinograin and COFCO, among others. 

Embodying important core values in trust, commitment and partnership, JJ-Lurgi makes no compromises when it comes to safety and the environment, staying committed to ensuring the best for its clients and employees. The corporation adheres strictly to ISO 45001 and ISO 14001 standards in its operations, ensuring the highest standards of safety, minimal downtime and reduced negative impact on the environment.

For the organization, winning the ACES Awards would be a true reflection of the hard work and success in helping to take the region’s oils and fats industry to greater heights. 

As it celebrates its 30th anniversary, the company believes an ACES win would be a fitting commemoration of three decades of expertise and success, especially in the midst of a global pandemic. 

“Know-how is not enough in today’s world of business. Companies in the post-pandemic world seek solutions, and JJ-Lurgi obliges, drawing on its deep reservoir of technological know-how and how-to.  Its designing of solutions that optimize resource utilization, and create efficient processes  make for gentler impacts on people and environments, without sacrificing efficiency and productivity.”

Shanggari Balakrishnan, Chief Executive Officer, MORS Group

“JJ-Lurgi deserves kudos for making no compromises when it comes to safety and the environment. Its adherence to international performance and reporting standards ensures the highest standards of safety, minimal downtime and reduced negative impact on the environment, thus making it one of the best performing companies in Asia.”
