Production of "green fuel" of pyrolized palm shells are very potential and promising for palm shell charcoal briquettes. With our technology the palm shells can be pyrolyzed for increasing energy density as high as possible, especially for metal casting or smelter applications with calorific value of 8,000 kcal / kg or more. Biooil which is the liquid pyrolysis products can be directly used as fuel in the boiler furnace or further purified for the production of a variety of liquid fuels or as raw material for various chemicals. While the wood vinegar,liquid products other than biooil will be used as fertilizer for the palm oil plantation.
Conventional Energy system of palm oil mill looks like the diagram below

Will then be turned into such a scheme following for the application of continuous pyrolysis:
|Improved Palm Oil Mill with Continous Pyrolysis System|
Waste heat recovery from the pyrolysis unit was also still be used to increase energy production.
Excess of oil palm shell is also potential for torrefied wood production.Our pyrolysis technology is able to work on the torrefaction mode in addition to the pyrolysis itself. More on our continuous pyrolysis technology, please click here or here.
