Composting empty fruit bunches of oil palm



Composting empty fruit bunches of oil palm



Extension Bulletin Food and Fertilizer Technology Center (505): 1-8



Two methods (open and closed) of composting the empty fruit bunches (EFB) of oil palm (Elaeis oleifera)in Malaysia were studied. Mixtures of EFB, fermentation liquid waste and chicken manure (open) and EFB, palm oil mill effluent and chicken manure (closed) were the ingredients for composting. Natural aeration was carried out in the open system and controlled aeration in the closed system. Windrow piles of 80 mt were used for the closed system, and smaller piles of 1 mt for the open system.
