Market Analysis for Making EFB Pellets
Introduction of EFB pelletEmpty Fruit Bunch (EFB) is a biomass waste of palm oil milling process, After being processed by the biomass pellet machine, the EFB pellet obtains high calories more than 4000 kcal/kg to become the new favorite of biomass energy industry. This biomass material can be used for energy generation, composting, mulching, pelletizing, etc. Their high density also permits compact storage and transport over long distance. They can be conveniently blown from a tanker to a storage bunker or silo on a customer’s worksite.
*Moisture < 12%
*Ash Content = 5%
*Volatile Material = 75%
*Carbon Content = 13%
*Heat Energy ≥ 4000 kcal/kg
Main Application for EFB Pellets
*Centralize Steam boiler
The market analysis of EFB pelletThe data below clearly shows that the palm oil industry of Southeast Asia boasts the largest and richest resources around the globe, especially Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia, that representing a huge amount of raw material for pelletization. Across the whole Malaysia alone there are more than 400 crude palm oil mills. As a matter of fact, the crude palm oil production is beyond 48 million metric tons per year， Ar the same time, billions of palm biomass residues such as palm empty fruit bunches (EFBs), palm kernel shells and palm frond or leaves gets processed. This clearly shows that there are plenty of palm empty fruit bunches for biomass pellet production.
