Palm Kernel Shell

Palm Kernel Shell are a side product derived from the production of palm kernel oil and palm oil from the palm tree seeds. The palm kernel shell is thick and wood like and hence a perfect fuel for wood co generation plants, thermal power stations, biomass power and industrial plants.

Palm kernel shell (PKS) is actually the by-product from palm oil industry, before the era for palm kernel shell being used as biomass, the oil palm owner will bury the palm kernel shell underneath the land and let it becomes black color palm kernel compost.  This is sort of organic fertilizer but because of the hard shell, it takes much longer time for converting totally to organic fertilizer.

Palm kernel shell is a well known biomass product because of it small in size and high in heat energy or calorific value.  Palm kernel is kernel from oil palm fruit.  After the oil palm fruit gone through the palm oil process, the kernel will be separated and kernel oil will further be distilled.

Palm kernel shell has gained it status as a bio fuel resource for biomass product.  It also classified as a renewable energy that complies with country energy regulation, such as Japan, Korea and Europe.  Palm kernel shell also consider as the replacement for wood chip.

In Indonesia and others, biomass boiler is becoming popular due to design, maintenance and cost.  Palm kernel shell is their first choice of biomass material then come after EFB pellet, wood chip, saw dust pellet, shredded EFB.  The palm kernel shell it’ll be better for renewable energy future.
