Alternative use of the oil palm fiber as fuel
The two boilers that generate the water vapor for the PROTROPIC processing plant use the oil palm bark as their only fuel, and its source is our neighbor palm oil extracting plant “La Sexta”. As a result, our fuel is not only renewable and functional (it has an ideal thermal potential energy), but it is easy to get and relatively cheap and we are also collaborating with other local industries. On the other hand, the ashes, product of the bark combustión inside our boilers, are rich in magnesium and potasium contents, elements that are returned to the soil with the natural fertilizer “bokashi”, the organic product that we also offer.
The water within our processes goes through a natural Vetiver filter where the impurities are absorbed from the water and it is definitively free from pollutants.
