Methane reducing potential of solid separation methods for oil palm mill

24.10.2017, Jakarta (Indonesia)

During this event innovative and cost-effective solutions for reducing methane emissions from POME ponds were presented and discussed with high-level speakers as Diah Suradireja, Vice-Chair of the ISPO Strengthening Committee and Adrian Suharto, Head Stakeholder Engagement, Neste, and more.

Last year, KLK (Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad), Neste, ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) and IDH (The Netherlands Sustainable Trade Initiative) have agreed together to research a method – potentially reducing GHG emissions – which is used by KLK plantations to generate solids useable for organic fertilizer.
All the parties believed that the solid separation method would need to be researched further to understand its potential in GHG reduction and eligibility under the EU-RED regulation. After nine months of field measurement, analysis and calculation, all the parties involved have shown the preliminary results of the research.

The goal of this event is to promote the implementation of this and similar technologies in the industry and thus contributing to reduce the overall GHG emissions.
