Strategies for improving biogas production of palm oil

Downloadable (with restrictions)! The sustainable practice in the palm oil industry, which provides the global most demanded edible oil has a long way to be well developed. One of the most challenging problems is the management of palm oil mill effluent (POME). The current most applied treatment method of POME is anaerobic ponding system, which is not environmental friendly.


Biogas generation from palm oil mill effluent Biomass

Palm oil is the main plant oil in the world. Most production is found in the Far East. Oil palm cultivation and oil processing are potentially large sources of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. Improving GHG impacts of palm oil production by generating biogas from palm oil mill effluent can help to reduce emissions while generating additional energy and income for (small-scale) farmers and plant

A review of biogas production from palm oil mill effluents

Biogas production is not challenged by raw material because oil palm milling is carried out continually in oil palm producing countries. Biogas can be used as a source of heat by direct combustion. The system reduces pollutants and also produces biogas that mills utilizes as fuel to produce electricity using the internal combustion engines. In Thailand, biogas is used in form of thermal energy

Biogas production from palm oil mill effluent and empty

The crude palm oil (CPO) extraction process generates a large amount of palm oil mill effluent (POME) with 0.5–0.75 m 3 ·tonne −1 oil palm fresh fruit bunches. POME is a combination of wastes, which are discharged from three sources of extraction process such as clarification wastewater (60%), sterilizer condensate (36%), and hydro-cyclone wastewater (4%) ( Ahmed et al., 2015 ).

1. Introduction. The last decade, consumption of palm oil in the world has massively improved and is controlled by Indonesia and Malaysia. It is calculated that the global production of palm oil is 62.34 million tonnes in 2014, but 6.14 million or 9.85 percent from last year and 85 percent productions coming from two largest palm oil-producing countries such as Indonesia (30.5 million tonnes


Anaerobic Treatment of Palm Oil Mill Effluent in Pilot

Large volumes of untreated palm oil mill effluent (POME) pose threat to aquatic environment due to the presence of very high organic content. The present investigation involved two pilot-scale anaerobic expanded granular sludge bed (EGSB) reactors, continuously operated for 1 year to treat POME. Setting HRT at 9.8 d, the anaerobic EGSB reactors reduced COD from 71179 mg/L to 12341&#

Boardroom: The untapped potential of biomass and biogas

For biogas, palm oil mills do not see it as a worthwhile investment as most mills harness biomass as a cheaper alternative for bioenergy. Mills also tend to lack grid access while those that have access find the FiT rates unattractive given the heavy investments required. It only takes a small investment to shred and bale the biomass fibre for export to China, which makes more economic sense
