A product from the production of palm oil and a vital component in the generation of renewable biomass fuel, PKS is used throughout Asia as an alternative for, and in addition to fossil fuel. Its use in the field of renewable energy generation is assured as long as the industry exists. Our suppliers are committed to the provision of their products according to all national and international ethical guidelines.
Palm Kernel Shells (or PKS) are the shell fractions left after the nut has been removed in the palm oil mill. It is a by-product in the production of palm oil and is commonly used in the natural biomass energy industry. PKS is a fibrous material, brownish-yellow in colour and with particle sizes normally ranging between 5mm and 40mm. Due to its high calorific value, averaging 4000 kcal/ kg, and low ash content, it is considered an attractive source of fuel in the production of energy from renewable sources.
Palm Kernel Shell can be burned as an independent eco fuel or as a natural, high quality pellet for burning in cogeneration of heat and energy as an addition to and replacement of coal – in this form it significantly reduces CO2 emissions.
PKS can also be used as an addition to other biomass fuels.
The material Organics Biomass promotes originates from plantations in Indonesia. The oil palms bear fruit year-round and the production capacity of oil producers is so efficient that permanent access to the product is guaranteed. High quantity deliveries can be supplied regularly.
Biomass fuels are organic materials produced as part of an economically and socially important bio-industry and, with new techniques and increased efficiency, PKS is increasingly produced according to the tenets of the RSPO: no destruction of the forest, the use of already degraded land for new plantations, respect for biodiversity and of human rights. PKS form an integral part of a cyclical process that is increasingly sustainable and fully meets the classification as biomass for use in the production of renewable energy.
The use of biomass as an alternative fuel reduces the amount of GHGs that is causing the climate emergency. Emissions from biomass are far smaller when compared to fossil fuels. The principal difference is that the CO2 which has been absorbed by plants for growth is simply returned to the atmosphere and is an integral component of the modern carbon cycle, whereas CO2 produced from fossil fuels is added to atmosphere where it contributes to increasing the greenhouse effect.
