BRIN and PTPN IV PalmCo: Continued to Develop Biogas from Palm Oil Waste

InfoSAWIT, PEKANBARU - Badan Riset Inovasi Nasional (BRIN) and Sub Holding Perkebunan Nusantara, PTPN IV PalmCo, keeps collaborating to succeed renewable energy from palm oil waste. After successfully developing palm oil liquid waste to be biogas in PalmCo Regional III, Riau Province, the research focus is to escalate biogas production by applying empty bunches in (biogas) process.

It is about to get better and stable biogas production by combining liquid and solid wastes. If it runs successfully, the technology would be the first in PTPN group, would significantly deliver energy production environmentally and consistently.

Vice Head of BRIN, Prof Amarulla Octavian did appreciate the collaboration that would directly deliver increasing biogas production. It would focus not only on the research but also technology application that has been tested in other regions in Indonesia.

As InfoSAWT quoted from the official page of the company, Director of PTPN IV PalmCo, Jatmiko Santosa did welcome the further research because it would be the same with the company’s strategy to support the government in decarbonization. The research is hoped to be the pioneer in biogas development from palm oil waste and support to realize net zero emission globally.

The stakeholders in PTPN IV also commit to support th research by hoping that the result would get efficient and effective technology in biogas production. By having the collaboration, it is hoped to solve carbon emission issue which the company produces, open the ways to develop the same technology in other regions.

The collaboration between the two institutions showed their commitment to support technology innovation to create sustainable solution about environmental challenges. By taking advantages on palm oil wastes as the source of renewable energy, they would create not only economic value but also contribute to get cleaner and more sustainable environment globally. (T2)
