WHY PALM KERNEL SHELLS?
The efficient energy source of the future
PKS from older palm plantation, is typically derived from the Dura fruit form, has thick lignified shell surrounding the kernel. Dura is more prevalent in plantations in Sumatra, Indonesia
Contrast this against Tenera, which has a much thinner shell. Tenera is mostly found in newer plantations in Malaysia and Kalimantan, Indonesia. Tenera is grown and found in newer plantations due to its higher ‘flesh’ and kernel content, where CPO Is derived from the flesh and palm kernel from the kernel.
