The centre will be based on the international BE-Basic consortium, coordinated by Delft University of Technology. The OPBC is part of the Memorandum of Understanding between BE-Basic and the Malaysian Government signed in April.

The OPBC aims to bring international partners and their investments together with Malaysian companies and academic institutes with the goal of developing the best routes for high-value chemical products, such as biorenewable plastics and other biomass products.
