Palm Kernel Shell (PKS) is a renewable biofuel made up of the hard shells of palm kernel nut.
In the palm oil milling process, palm kernel nuts are separated from the fibruos palm pulp. The nuts are then cracked to extract the kernels for subsequent oil extraction while the shells are separated from the main processing line. Part of the shells are used as fuel for the boiler and the balance is processed into renewable palm biofuel.
Similar to other nut shell, PKS has calorific value close to that of wood pellets, lignite (brown coal) and peat, with Lower Heating Value of 3’500 kCal/kg and Higher Heating Value of 4’000 kCal/kg.
Moisture content is kept below 20% to improve the efficiencies of transportaton and combustion.
We recognize the importance of uninterrupted fuel supply. Hence, we are committed to set up biofuel logistic network and storage facility nearby to your facility. Please contact us for detailed logistic arrangement that delivers you the renewable palm biofuel with lowest carbon footprint.
