on . Posted in Archives of Activities 2012

    The Director General of NAHRIM, Ir. Hj. Ahmad Jamalluddin Bin Shaaban had flown to London, United Kingdom on October 22, 2012 to participate in the United Kingdom largest exhibition of invention, innovation and technology ‘British Invention Show and Awards 2012’ (BIS). The BIS was held from 24 October to 27 October 2012 at the Barbican Exhibition Centre, London, United Kingdom. In the event, the team that came together includes leading inventors and innovators, academics and entrepreneurs with their respective products to compete for the coveted World Invention & British Invention of the year awards. About 20 countries participated in the BIS 2012 with the total number of 300 products during the four days event. NAHRIM has brought the product of Smart Drainage Trap (SMADRAT) to compete in the BIS 2012. SMADRAT is an innovative product which is jointly developed by the Research Centre for River, NAHRIM and Muslim Global Intelek Sdn. Bhd. It is an adapted version of gross pollutant trap with the concept of control at source and cost effective compared to the imported GPTs.

    The delegation of NAHRIM was led by Ir. Hj. Ahmad Jamalluddin Bin Shaaban and also represented by Mr. Azman bin Mat Jusoh, a senior research officer from the Research Centre for River. The inventors of SMADRAT from the Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID), Dr. Nasehir Khan E.M Yahya and Hj. Juhaimi bin Jusoh were also joined the team of NAHRIM. In the event, a panel of judges in three different groups has visited every booth to evaluate the products in terms of its benefits to mankind and environment, originality, ingenuity as well as design to test.
    Although the above event is the first time for NAHRIM in participating and competing on invention and innovation awards, it was not an obstacle for NAHRIM to achieve a great success with double gold award. This achievement is an important recognition to the NAHRIM’s product and indicated that the SMADRAT has a high standard in design, innovation and value to the environment. The awards also will give a significant impact to the development of the SMADRAT program especially in the commercialization phase which is expected to start in the middle of 2013. The members of NAHRIM also gained a good experience in the competition for a better preparation in the similar future events all over the world in order to promote NAHRIM, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (NRE), and Malaysia.
