Introduction PT. POLINDO BIO ENERGI PRATAMA (PBEP) primary activity is the import of biomass namely Palm Kernel Shell from Indonesia to Asia and European continent. Palm Kernel Shells can be considered a natural pellet and a high grade solid renewable fuel for burning, both in co firing with steam coal or at biomass power plants. It is usually blended with other grades of biomass such as wood chips. Indonesia is the world largest exporter of palm oil, hence the vast resource they offer and our business orientation. The Process During the palm oil production process, the fruit is removed from the flesh and the leftover cores are shattered mechanically for the purpose of extracting its seeds. The shattered shells take the name of Palm Kernel Shells (PKS). As opposed to some other types of biomass, the use of PKS is completely environmentally benign. PKS is a waste by-product of the palm oil industry; it is relevant, abundant and classified as renewable waste-material. It is easy to ship, doesnt need to be densified and can be readily co-fired with coal in grate fired and fluidized bed boilers as well as cement kilns for achieving increased fuel mix diversification. Our Experience Our Company has already many times successfully supplied Polish and Thailand buyers with Palm Kernel Shell. PBEP purchases PKS directly from palm oil plantations on the basis of long term contracts. PBEP has built up solid relations with Palm Kernel Shell suppliers, reassuring its clients a guaranteed supply and ensuring the highest levels of contracted specifications of the Palm Kernel Shells. The Product Heat value of PKS is relatively high compared with other biomass. In addition, its carbon-neutral chemical characteristics are widely considered favorable to greenhouse gas emissions reduction, as opposed to other biomass fuels such as wood, straw, hay, sunflower seeds etc. Palm Kernel Shells does not contain any nitrogen, carbon or hydrogen. PKS is much safer for co-firing installations in power plants and there is no need to clean the installations as often (cost reduction). The physical and chemical value of biomass is presented in the table below.
