In 2005 BTG installed a 2 t/h production plant in Malaysia using Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB) as feedstock The plant was first constructed in modules in the Netherlands and consequently shipped to Malaysia EFB is a leftover from palm oil mill processing which at present is incinerated without recovering of the heat

Mar 30 2011The char of three typical biomasses rice straw char (RS char) chinar leaves char (CL char) and pine sawdust char (PS char) was prepared in a high-frequency furnace which could efficiently reduce secondary reactions under rapid pyrolysis conditions at 800−1200 C The rapid pyrolysis char produced was isothermally gasified in a thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA)

Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB) is the waste produced when oil palm fruitlet is taken from a fresh fruit bunch during the process of palm oil production Raw EFB is available as wet whole empty fruit bunches each weighing several kilograms while processed (shredded) EFB is a fibrous material with fiber length of 10-20 cm and reduced moisture content
