About PKS

Palm kernel shells are the highly calorific shell fractions left after the nut has been removed after crushing in the Palm Oil mill. 

The combustion of PKS is considered to be carbon neutral, it is subject to feed-in tarriffs applied to renewable energies. Also, due to the presence of oil in the palm shell, the calorific power is twice the one of normal wood. This is probably why, PKS based biomass electric production projects have raised recently.

Characteristics of PKS

  • Carbon neutrality

  • Highly calorific combustible

  • Fitted to bulk transport

  • Long term and stable supply

About Wood Pellet

Pellets are biofuels made from compressed sawdust or milling residues.  their regular geometry and small size high density also permits compact storage and transport over long distance.Pellets are categorized by their heating value, moisture and ash content, cost effectiveness. They can be used as fuels for power generation, commercial or residential heating. Environmental and cost considerations make wood pellets attractive. 

Characteristics of Wood Pellet

  • Diminution of CO2 emission

  • Highly calorific combustible

  • Maintenance cost reduction

  • Compact, easy to store and to transport

  • Long term and stable supply

About Wood Chip

Woodchips are a medium-sized solid material made by cutting, or chipping, larger pieces of wood. The energy of combustion in a boiler is converted to electrical power. Cheaper than the pellets, they can be used in small-scale boilers or in large-scale power plants. Allowing to reduce the CO2 emissions made by diesel electrical plants, wood chips play an important role in the reduction the environment load and CO2 emissions, both in its production method (chipper) and utilization. 

Characteristics of Wood Chip

  • Reduction of CO2 emissions

  • Cheaper than pellets

  • Possibility of automated supply and operation in boiler
