The global demand for palm oil is growing, thus prompting an increase in the global production particularly in Malaysia and Indonesia. Such increasing demand for palm oil is due to palm oil’s relatively cheap price and versatile advantage both in edible and non-edible applications. Along with the increasing demand for palm oil, particularly for the production of biofuel, is a heated debate on its sustainability. Ecological degradation, climate change and social issues are among the main… 
The Palm Oil Industry From The Perspective of Sustainable Development: A Case Study of Malaysian Palm Oil Industry
Demand for vegetables oils has been growing strongly since the last decade due to increased in global population and oils consumption. Palm oil is one of the most important vegetable oils in the
Environmental Impacts of Oil Palm Processing in Nigeria
Nigeria is the fifth largest producer of oil palm in the world with domestic production of 930 thousand metric tonnes accounting for about 1.5% of global output. Oil palm industry has positive
Future potential of Forest and Agriculture Residues for the energy production in Thailand - Strategies for a better utilization
One of the world leaders in agriculture, Thailand is looking for a renewable energy mix to fulfill its soaring energy demand and to reduce the high importation rates of fossil fuel. Biomass is
Role of Methane Capture for Sustainable Biodiesel Production from Palm Oil: A Life Cycle Assessment Approach
Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) is one of the major wastes generated by palm oil milling which is a part of palm oil diesel production chain. POME contain of methane (about 60-70 %), which contribute
Energy balances and greenhouse gas emissions of palm oil biodiesel in Indonesia
This study presents a cradle‐to‐gate assessment of the energy balances and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of Indonesian palm oil biodiesel production, including the stages of land‐use change (LUC),
A Review on Recycling Ash Derived from Elaeis guineensis By-product
Oil palm (Elaeis guineensis) ash is defined as the waste generated after the combustion of oil palm biomass. Malaysia is one of the world’s largest producers and exporter of palm oil in the world,
Successful and sustainable crop based biodiesel programme in Nigeria through ecological optimisation and intersectoral policy realignment
Abstract Biofuel programmes are characterised with failures especially in Africa, including Nigeria. One of the major factors causing these failures is embarking on programmes that are not based on
Vegetable oil have emerged as alternative source of fuel in the near future. Nigeria have choose oil palm as potential feedstock for the biodiesel industry. This study attempted the production of
Land-Use Implications to Energy Balances and Greenhouse Gas Emissions on Biodiesel from Palm Oil Production in Indonesia
The findings demonstrate that there are considerable differences between the farming systems and the locations in net energy yields and greenhouse gas emissions, and the output to input ratios are positive in all cases.
Hydrothermal Carbonisation of Empty Palm Oil Fruit Bunches: Laboratory Trials, Plant Simulation, Carbon Avoidance, and Economic Feasibility
Empty fruit bunches (EFB) from the production of palm oil constitute a significant and increasingly problematic waste stream. Direct firing is hindered by a water content of 65 %. This paper


Palm oil production through sustainable plantations
The Malaysian oil palm industry is one of the most highly organised sectors of any national agriculture system of the world. Today, though, the focus has shifted to how well agriculture also meets
Palm oil: Addressing issues and towards sustainable development
The quest for renewable energy has intensified since the escalating price of crude petroleum in the recent years. Renewable energy such as biodiesel has the potential to replace petroleum-derived
Feasibility Study of Performing an Life Cycle Assessment on Crude Palm Oil Production in Malaysia (9 pp)
AbstractBackground, Goal and Scope The palm oil industry is one of the leading industries in Malaysia. With a yearly production of more than 13 million tons of crude palm oil (CPO) and plantations
Palm oil markets and future supply
This article considers the recent trends in the palm oil market balance and the future prospects for palm oil fundamentals. The article finds that there exists potential for the demand for palm oil
Environmental performance of the milling process of Malaysian palm oil using the life cycle assessment approach.
Malaysia is currently the world leader in the production and export of palm oil. This study has a gate to gate system boundary. The inventory data collection starts at the oil palm fresh fruit bunch
Environmental evaluation of biodiesel production from palm oil in a life cycle perspective
Biodiesel is one of the most promising alternative fuels for transportation in Thailand. It is a very good candidate for substituting petroleum-diesel in engines because of its similar properties.
Water recycling from palm oil mill effluent (POME) using membrane technology
Malaysia is the largest producer and exporter of palm oil. Palm oil processing is carried out in palm oil mills where oil is extracted from a palm oil fruit bunch. Large quantities of water are used
Baseline study of methane emission from anaerobic ponds of palm oil mill effluent treatment.
This study revealed that anaerobic pond system is more efficient than open digesting tank system for POME treatment and calculated the total methane emission calculated from the two equations derived from relationships between methane emission and total carbon removal and POME discharged were comparable with field measurement.
A Review of Palm Oil Mill Effluent (Pome) Water Treatment
2 Abstract: Palm oil is one of the two most important vegetable oils in the world's oil and fats market. The extraction and purification processes generate different kinds of waste generally known as
