Murugasen for Spearation Process Course.

ABOUT THE PLANT

Malay Sino Chemicals offer a complete range of high quality chlor alkali. These are available at competitive prices and packaging. Based on few simple chemical equations, Malay Sino manages to handle a complex and complicated process plant that produced the desired products. Generally, the function of the plant is to produce sodium hydroxide or caustic soda (NaOH). This is their main products. Raw material such as sodium chloride (NaCl) is used as the main feed. But, from the main operation we will get other side products that are useful. So, the Malay Sino did not waste them and extend their operation to process the side products and gain more products for marketing.

RAW MATERIALS AND PRODUCTS

(1) Industrial salt (NaCl) + dimeneralised water -> Caustic Soda (NaOH)
(2) Hydrogen gas (H2) + Chlorine gas (Cl2) -> Hydrochloric Acid (HCl)
(3) Chlorine gas (Cl2) + Caustic Soda (NaOH) -> Sodium Hypochloride (NaOCl)

INPUT
Here, I would like to share the important inputs from the speakers that we should practice in our daily life.

Dr Faiz Khaleed

Clarity is power
When we work with others especially in team work, we should have clarity in whatever we do. The way we speak must be understand by others. All this things are important to avoid from any miss communication.
Never give up
The important thinking that we should have in our mind is never give up. Whatever we do, whoever we are, we should not give up. The success and failure is just parameters to measure our achievement. The important thing is our destination. For me, never give up term play a vital role in my life. Sometimes, I'm at the top, but sometimes I'm at the bottom. So, the thing that make me stronger is a quote which is:

"The pass cannot be changed, the future is still in your power"

This quote gives me 1001 meaning to interpret and apply in my daily life. Once we are failed, we are not always fail. We can be succeed in the future because all the decisions are ours.

Mohamed Akwal Sultan

"Make prudent financial management our way of life"
The quote clearly shows that we should manage our financial in a correct way. From this conference, I knew a little bit about how to save our future salary and the importance of our saving. The important thing is we should know to distinguish our needs from wants.

Amirul Iskandar Mannan

"Your attitude determines your altitude"

5 tips on how to have a positive attitude at all times
1)You must make a decision to become a positive person (change)
2)Think positive (see/hear/talk) - tell yourself something positive everyday
3)Surround yourself with positive people

BAD ATTITUDES, LEFT ALONE, RUIN EVERYTHING!

"If you leave a bad apple in a barrel of good apples, you will
always end up with a barrel of rotten apples"

4)Get active, take action (get involved)
5)You must grow as a human being (from nobody to become somebody)
example : read books, listen to tapes/cd/dvd, attend seminar & conference

Only two things can change your life in the next few years:
1: the people that you meet

2: the book that you read!

by Charlie Tremendous Jones


Datuk Dr Rosti Saruwono

Main problems in team work:
1)Physical distance - hard to have direct discussion
2)Communication problem - language use especially with different races or country
3)Time
4)Boundary in team work

"Never ever let people say you are not good enough"

The quotes is an advice from Dr Rosti that we should take on consideration when we are working in a group. In order to avoid from people say we are not good enough is try to be a good person, give full commitment and give the most contribution in our group.


Datuk Maznah Hamid

We are three persons:
1)The person we think we are
2)The person others think we are
3)The person we really are

"The conduct of successful business merely consists in doing things in a very simple way, doing them regularly, and never neglecting to do them"

"Either you network or you are not working"


Advices:
be multi-skileed
be multi-talented
