The largest waste by-product generated during the production of CPO is palm oil mill effluent (POME). For every ton of CPO produced, 2.9 tons of POME is generated. POME is the result of large quantities of steam and hot water used to clean the fruit and separate the shell and cake from the palm fruit. The water and steam are washed away on the mill floor and directed to waste ponds that gather the POME residue. POME consists of 3 to 5 % of Palm Acid Oil (PAO) and 95 to 97% of water. Once the PAO is processed and extracted from the POME, the PAO residue can be sold as a feedstock for the production of 2nd generation biofuels. Energy Feeds sells PAO that meets international specifications, such as ISCC-EU specifications.
