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

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…
