What is EFB?

EFB is a type of mill waste. It is what remains after fresh fruit bunches are pressed for oil. EFB stands for Empty Fruit Bunches. A palm olive plantation yields huge amounts of biomass waste, It also has attractive energy potential as it contains no chemical or mineral additives.

What are EFB pellets?

EFB (Empty Fruit Bunch) pellets are made when the palm empty fruit bunches are shredded, compressed and pelletized by a pellet mill. It has typical burn values of 4,200 to 4,900 kg cal/kg after the EFB biomass has been converted to pellets. This makes empty fruit bunch pellets a very suitable substitute for coal.
