oil palm mill waste


Palm Oil Mill Waste (Borneo)

This is the pile of oil palm fruits that have been pressed in the mill to extract the plam oil.­

There are efforts to compost this oil palm waste, but it requires constant spraying of water otherwise the waste just dries up.­

The management of this mill was very upset that I was taking photo of this waste, which by the way, was located outside the perimeter of the mill.­
