Non-Ferrous Metals

ITOCHU Malaysia Sdn. Bhd.'s main non-ferrous metals products are zinc, aluminum and copper. We can source zinc and aluminum from overseas suppliers for Malaysian manufacturing companies. For copper, we export copper cloves to Japan and are interested in Malaysian copper clove suppliers. ITOCHU Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. can also handle other non-ferrous metals such as tin and lead. As a note, our ferrous metals business is handled exclusively by Marubeni-ITOCHU Steel Sdn Bhd.

Biomass Fuel

Recognizing the growing importance of sustainable and renewable green energy, ITOCHU Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. is also involved in the trading of biomass materials as fuel for energy production. Our main product for biomass fuels are palm kernel shells (PKS) and wood pellets.

Collected from palm waste, PKS has been used as a clean burning fuel to generate energy for industrial operations. Depending on the quality of the PKS collected, this green fuel is capable of generating up to 4200 net calorific value. Like PKS, wood pellets are also a source of clean energy. Wood pellets sourced from Malaysia consist of recycled wood-based wood pellets and tropical wood-based wood pellets. Unlike PKS, wood pellets generate higher net calorific value (up to 4380 nett calorific value).

ITOCHU Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. is exporting Malaysian origin PKS overseas, particularly to Japan. Besides Japan, ITOCHU Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. is also facilitating inquiries to export PKS and other biomass fuels to other Asian countries such as Taiwan and South Korea.

If you are a PKS or a wood pellet supplier, ITOCHU Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. would like to know you. As ITOCHU Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. receives inquiries for PKS and wood pellets from abroad, ITOCHU Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. can connect you to the international market. We are also open to consider and assist to promote any other types of biomass materials which can be used as biomass fuels.


Despite the growing importance of green energy, one cannot deny that conventional energy such as coal is still essential to today’s energy hungry world. ITOCHU Corporation is a major trader of coal worldwide and it owns equity stakes in some major coal mines. ITOCHU Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. has access to this worldwide network and can source coal from various countries like Indonesia, China, Russia, Columbia and South Africa.
