Catching Up the Great Opportunity of OPT Pellet Part 2

The abundance of old palm trunks left only in the palm oil plantations until they become decay after entering the unproductive period is one form of waste or inefficiency in the utilization of natural resources. These palm trunks are very potential to be processed into pellet or oil palm trunk pellets (OPT Pellets) which is currently also an export commodity. In addition, there are also a lot of waste namely oil palm fronds  that are only stacked in the oil palm plantationns to wait its decay. Of course it is also a kind of waste or inefficient use of natural resources as well as the case of the palm trunks above. Why do we let it linger? Let's find a solution to that.

These oil palm fronds can be used as fuel for drying the palm trunk powder before it is made pellet. Yes, the palm trunks should be reduced the size (size reduction stage) into the size of wood powder (sawdust) and then dried and then pelleted. In this way biomass wastes become utilized instead of polluting the environment and becoming a business unit. The palm fronds can be directly used as fuel in the furnace with hot flue gas for drying the palm trunk powder. Ash from burning palm trunk can also be returned to the plantation as potassium (K)-rich fertilizer.
Currently we have OPT Pellet request for export market with capacity 1,000 ton / month. For oil palm entrepreneurs or the energy sector who are interested in following up the opportunity, can write an email to

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…

10 Advantages By Making Energy Plantations for Wood Pellet Production

Assuredness of supply of raw materials is one of the key factors of business success in the wood pellets. There are two ways to obtain raw materials commonly done today: a. Buying from the owner of source of raw materials. b. Producing its own the availability of raw materials. While the 3rd way and there is still few for business owners make wood pellets is by mix way, which is partly provide by their own of raw materials and some rest buy from the other source of raw materials.
While examining at the types of biomass raw materials there are two kinds, namely : a. Woody biomass b. Non-wood biomass such as agricultural wastes (empty fruit bunches of palm oil trees, corn cobs, rice husks and so on). Currently woody biomass remains a priority to be products of wood pellets as a number of advantages over non-wood biomass which is generally an agricultural wastes, are included in the category of biomass pellets or agri-waste pellets. The comparison between wood pellet and biomass pellet …
