Use Case: Organic Waste Power Generation Solution

Mankind has utilized olive trees and oil palms for cooking oil for thousands of years. But during our modern era, the production by-products have become a major problem. Production quantities are so huge that the left-over material; empty fruit bunches, palm oil mill effluent and palm kernel shells from oil palms, as well as olive mill waste are threatening local ecosystems, polluting ground water, and eventually affecting people’s health and livelihood.

The wasteWOIMA® power plant uses also organic waste fractions, such as olive mill waste (OMW), empty fruit bunches (EFB), palm oil mill effluent (POME) and palm kernel shell (PKS) to generate super-heated steam, electricity, thermal energy and/or potable water. Creating energy from a leftover fuel, while protecting the environment from the impact of these production by-products.
