SYNOPSIS

Engineers, Public, traders or investors always pay attention ONLY on the conventional key products in the palm oil mill. The Crude Palm Oil (CPO) and Palm Kernel (PK) are the two popular trading products in the commodity market conventionally. Lately more and more investors and traders start to focus on palm oil mill by-products and exploring the engineering process. This is a positive indication anyway.

It is proudly to share here that not only the palm oil mill key-products can be traded, but the solid biomass waste(s) which are more and more that converted into valuable by-products are gradually traded locally as well as sold to foreign country, particularly traded with company who is focusing to the renewable energy for national power supply (Japan and Korea for example).

There are many by-products (solid biomass waste especially) in the palm oil mill engineering process. Due to the environmental concerns and mandatory compliances set by the governing authorities, efforts & expenditure on handling and managing the waste has become heavy fixed operating cost in the palm oil milling annually. This is an operating barrier to the industry.

In order to be technically and commercially sustainable, the approach of dealing with waste shall be in the voluntary mode, rather than mandatory. This is more holistic and practical in overall operating condition. On the environment aspect, the carbon stock (CO2   can be reduced gradually & ultimately through more holistic approaches.
