Oil Palm EFB Used for Power Plant

2017-08-17 17:41:31

What is EFB?

One of the most significant by-products—in terms of quantity—of the palm oil milling process is the empty fruit bunch(EFB), with one ton of fresh fruit producing approximately 0.22 tons of empty fruit bunches. It is one of the potential biomass to produce biofuels like bio-oil due to its abundant supply and favorable physicochemical characteristics.

Abundant resource & EFB

Crude palm oil production is reaching 48.99 million metric tonnes per year globally in 2011 and Southeast Asia is the main contributor, with Indonesia accounting for 48.79%, Malaysia 36.75%, and Thailand 2.96%. Oil palm is a multi-purpose plantation and it is also an intensive producer of biomass. Accompanying the production of one kg of palm oil, approximately 4 kg of dry biomass are produced. One third of the oil palm biomass is oil palm empty fruit bunch (OPEFB) and the other two thirds are oil palm trunks and fronds.

The supply of oil palm biomass and its processing by-products are found to be seven times that of natural timber. Besides producing oils and fats, there are continuous interests in using oil palm biomass as the source of renewable energy.
