Palm kernel shell can be considered as pellet form because of it nature form, due to it high grade solid, high calorific value, low ash and low sulfur content.
From biomass aspect, the calorific value 20100kJ/kg and solid form has become one of the most favourable biomass media. It always mix with EFB fibre n certain ratio to burn in the biomass boiler.
Product specification in standard as follow (based on ROA) :
Gross Calorific Value = 4534 Kcal/kg
Total Moisture = 13.2%
Moisture in the analysis sample = 6.9%
Ash Content = 1.4%
Impurities = 0.2%
Sulphur = 0.11%
