Palm Oil Mill Effluent Management

Eagle High Plantations

The oil palm fruit produces 2 products namely crude palm oil (CPO) and crude palm kernel oil (CPKO). CPO is obtained from the mesocarp and CKPO from the kernel. During the extraction process, it generates waste such as empty fruit bunch (EFB) and palm oil mill effluent (POME). These wastes are applied to the fields in sustainable manners as organic fertilizer.

Palm oil mill effluent (POME) for land application as organic fertilizer.

By implementing POME as organic fertilizer, it helps reduce inorganic fertilizer usage.
