The First Industrial-Scale Commercially Viable & Environmentally Sensitive System For Empty Fruit Bunch Waste Disposal

Project description

Environmentally friendly disposal of palm oil production waste

The palm oil production industry generates 60 M tonnes of waste as empty fruit baskets annually. The land dumping of empty baskets causes decomposition with high levels of methane emission and water pollution, while incineration disposal was banned completely as a major contributor to global CO2 emission. AutoDisplay GmbH developed enzyme technology that can prevent the environmental damage caused by empty fruit basket dumping. This EU-funded project supports the effort to incorporate this innovative technology into the growing palm oil production industry as a necessary step for conversion to self-sufficient and environmentally responsible biorefinery processing.
