Tan Yue Dian is currently a Ph.D. student in the Chemical Engineering program under School of Chemical and Energy Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) in Johor, Malaysia. She is working to perform optimal planning for a new conceptual zone of integrated palm oil processing complex that can serve as a sustainable climate change-tackling solution for palm oil mills. Her research interest lies in the sustainability impacts of implementing palm oil mill effluent (POME) elimination and mill-refinery integration in palm oil mills. Her study includes the evaluation of trade-offs between biogas utilization and POME elimination approaches in designing a sustainable integrated palm oil based-complex (POBC) for palm oil processing purpose using mathematical and optimisation tools. She has published 4 Q1 papers, 3 Scopus indexed articles and 1 book chapter to date based on her research findings. In attachment to Process Systems Engineering Centre (PROSPECT), she has been involved in the Eco-industrial Park project with her colleagues and Waste 2 Wealth development (a Malaysian waste exchange website) to facilitate Malaysia’s circular economy transformation. Recently, she has been shortlisted as one of the finalists for the YSN-ASM Chrysalis Award as a promising candidate to contribute towards Malaysia’s Science, Technology and Innovation ecosystem.
