Increasing growth of global economy has been exerting pressure on existing energy resources. Sustainable fuel resource development is required to combat the increasing demand for fuel, the diminishing of fossil fuels and forestry resource and degradation of environment. One of the emerging biomass resource that can help to solve these issues is EFB pellets from oil palm biomass.
Oil palm is a multi-purpose plantation and it is a productive biomass producer. One kg of palm oil produced is accompanied by 4 kg of oil palm biomass, such as oil palm empty fruit bunches known as EFBs and oil palm trunks and fronds. Oil palm biomass and its by-products supplied are seven times of that of natural timber. Oil palm is mainly planted in Southeast Asian and with Malaysia, Indonesia ,and Thailand listed as top three.
1.EFB pellet composition
Palm leaves wood pellet is oily and bulky, consisted of cellulose, hemicelluloses lignin, containing the elements such as carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, sulphur, oxygen, etc., and have a high moisture content around 65%. The element analysis and Proximate analysis of the EFB are shown in the following diagram for your reference.
The physical properties of EFBs make them valuable and make them difficult to be utilized at the same time .
Usually, in an complete palm EFB production line the following equipment are involved:
(1)Electric cabinet( to control equipment in the whole EFB production line)
(2)palm shredder(to get EFB biomass into proper size for dryer)
(3)Dryer machine（to get the moisture content ready for pelletizing）
(4)Hammer mill ( to grind the proper sized and dried materials into power for pelletizing)
(5)Palm shell pellet machine(or oil palm fronds pellet machine to pelletize the prepared materials into pellets)
(6)Cooler machine( to cooler down the newly extruded hot pellets and hard the pellets)
(7)Packing machine( to bag EFB pellets according to requirements).
