Palm Kernel Shells


Palm Kernel Shells

Palm kernels are shells enclosed in fleshy fiber which, when processed, extracts palm oil.

  • Palm Kernel Shell are a side waste product derived from the production of palm kernel oil and palm oil from the palm tree seeds.
  • The waste includes solid and liquid waste.  We use both types of waste as organic fertilizer and fuel.

Alternative Fuel

PKS can be used as an alternative fuel for biomass-based combined heat and power plants to produce heat and power.

Essential Oil

Palm kernel oil contains essential fatty acids and vitamins A, E, and K that help promote heart, bone, skin, hair and eye health.

Good For Heart

Palm kernel oil has 80% saturated fat which makes a heart healthy balance between unsaturated and saturated fats.

Storage & Care

    • Palm Kernel stored in bulk piles is susceptible to spontaneous heating, and eventually combustion, if not handled properly. So avoid heat conditions around PKS.

    • The stored pellet itself offers a very aromatic essence, which is very similar to ginseng. This pleasant aroma is a sign of quality and freshness.
