Why Choose SRC Energy Plantations Than Palm Oil Plantations?

A number of the people plantations who produce fresh fruit bunches (FFB) was not able to be accommodated by the palm oil mill (POM), meaning that the ratio of the number of the POMs are not comparable with the number of palm oil plantations. Indonesia is the largest of palm oil producer (CPO=Crude Palm Oil) in the world with an area of oil palm plantations reach 10 million hectares by 2013. Palm oil productivity reached 27 tons / ha / year of FFB with a yield of CPO about 3.7 tons / ha / year, with the start of harvest after 4-year-old and productive period of about 25 years. With the average price of TBS IDR 1800/kg for every hectare would produce about IDR 48 million / year, a promising revenue from the plantation business course. But because all the FFB can not be processed due to the absence of plant it will not necessarily provide the desired benefit.

Energy plantation with SRC is an alternative for those who want to develop the plantation business investment is not so great. Plants such as calliandra and gliricidae very easy to grow, easy care, quick harvest, continue to be productive for about 25 years and fertilize the soil. Increasing the value added can be done with eg intercropping with crops. Unused land and marginal land could be pursued to the energy plantaion with thse plants. With the productivity of wood biomass around 20 tons / ha / year, with a price, let’s say, IDR 400/kg it will get a IDR 8 million / year for each hectare, it is far below of the economic aspect of palm oil plantation, but by the age of 1 year can be harvested, seeds and maintenance costs also very cheap, then it could be a consideration.

 The price of modern palm oil mill average price of IDR 4 M for every tonne of FFB / hour. With POM 45 tons FFB / hour capacity  it takes an investment IDR 180 M, a large amount of investment. As for the price of wood pellet mill capacity of 3 tons / hour range from IDR 5 M to become more affordable. Economic analysis of palm oil mill and wood pellet mill is almost the same, with the average ROI (Return on Investment) of 3.5 years.

5 The Largest Wood Pellets Producers Today

References are needed to make something no less quality or even better, as well as for a wood pellet production facility. Indonesia with extensive land available,fertile and tropical climate needs to get complete and qualified reference especially on wood pellet production so that they can optimize its potency. Diversification of energy is also desperately needed by Indonesia so that it has strong resilience and energy sovereignty, especially with its current condition which has become a net importer of petroleum, even projected in the range of approximately 10 years future Indonesia's oil will be exhausted. The following description of the 5 largest wood pellet plant today can be used as a reference.
Enviva was established in 2004, currently Enviva operates 7 wood pellet plants with total production of more than 3 million tons / year. Some of its wood pellet production is exported to the UK and Europe. A number of ports are used For shipment or export of wood pellet, ie po…

Carbon Positive, Carbon Carbon Neutral or Negative?

Greenhouse gases from burning fossilfuels have caused the Earth's temperature to rise. Increasing the temperature of the earth or global warming causing numerous disasters due to climate change in a number of places on earth. When greenhouse gases not controlled then the result of damage to the environment of the earth will be more severe. Therefore, efforts were made to reduce greenhouse gases as the cause of environmental problems. In general, there are four common scenarios to prevent the global warming effect of CO2 in the atmosphere gradually, namely: 1.increasing the efficiency so the fossil fuel consumption decreases, 2.mix of renewable fuels with fossil fuels so that fossil fuel consumption has also decreased, 3.substitution of fossil fuels with renewable fuels 4.and the absorption of CO2 in the atmosphere so that the concentration of greenhouse gases can be reduced. Here are some basic terms related to the above problems. Based on the origin and the effect that CO2 in the atmo…
