Palm oil manily involves in 3 processes: Palm oil pressing, Palm oil refining, and Palm oil fractionation processing lines.
Palm fresh fruit brunch is relatively different from other crops like cotton seed or peanut, so the pretreatment and oil pressing equipment can not be used and pressed other raw materials. However, the refining line work independently and can be shared for other crops' oil refinement.
Fresh Palm Fruit Bunches(FFB) Harvest：
Oil palms are able to produce fruit for harvest within 4 to 6 years of planting, if fertilized well. Life expectancy is 28 to 30 years on average, at which point they are usually 40 feet / 12 metres high and it becomes too hard to harvest the heavy fruit bundles using extension pole.
How many ton CPO & CPKO you get from FFB?
The trees start being productive at around 3 years and then they keep producing for around 25 years.
CPKO = 1T/Hectare/year
FFB = 1000-3000 individual palm fruit
FFB = 10-25kg
FFB = 20%CPO；2%CPKO
Weight of each palm fruit= 8-13g
