Palm empty fruit bunch is an important kind of raw material in the biomass pellet production particularly in the Southeast Asian countries including Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. The mentioned Asian countries are said to have gathered the greatest number of palm trees in the world lending to a huge influx of investors in the region. As a matter of fact, the crude palm oil production is beyond 48 million metric tons per yearly. On the same note, billions of palm biomass residues such as palm empty fruit bunch (EFBs), palm kernel shells and palm frond or leaves gets processed. This clearly shows that there is plenty of palm empty fruit bunches for biomass pellet production.

Making pellets from empty fruit bunch by setting up a palm biomass pellet plant . Actually, the EFB pellets are the same as other related biomasses which involves drying, crushing, pelletizing cooling and finally packaging. How to build an automatic pellet mill?
Drying and crushing the EFB pellets is a bit different from the other biomasses due to its nature. Unfortunately, inexperienced manufacturers fail to identify the required equipment for crushing and drying the EFB fiber. Only, companies that have already made EFB pellet are able to provide the best equipment for the purpose.
After crushing EFB pellet fiber you are left with EFB powder which contains proper moisture is then fed into the pellet mill and pressed to form EFP pellets with high density.
The EFB pellets coming from the pellet mill are hot and they must undergo the processes of cooling first. The cooled pellets are later packaged in bags of different sizes depending on the market needs.
