This paper present the Life Cycle Analysis studies of Palm oil in Malaysia. This research focus on three activity of the palm oil industry, the plantation activities of palm oil industry, the process and production of the Crude Palm Oil with the Palm Oil Mill Effluent treatment and the transportation process involved. Oil palm is one of the planting crops with the highest oil yield. Oil palm plantation is very common in Malaysia and Indonesia where both are the major exporter country of palm oil. Palm oil and its by-products have a lot different usage and contribution to the industry and the related co-industry. This has generated a significant amount of economic surplus of foreign investment into the nation domestically.
