Palm oil mill effluent

In Ghana, fresh (80% DM) palm oil mill effluent was included at up to 30% (as fed basis), to replace up to 45% of maize grain in ad libitum diets for growing pigs without affecting growth and generally improving carcass measurements (Abu et al., 1984).

In recent decades, Malaysia has been known as one of the world’s leading producers and exporters of palm oil products. Every year, the number of palm oil mills increases rapidly, thus increasing the capacity of fresh fruit bunch waste or effluent discharge. Based on the data from the Malaysian Palm Oil Board in 2012, Malaysia produced 99.85 million tons of fresh fruit bunch (FFB) per year

The palm oil industry experienced significant improvement in its production level from 2002 to 2009 from the established companies, medium scale mills (MSM), small scale and other private holdings (SS and OPH) groups. However, the same cannot be said for treatment of the palm oil mill effluent (POME) produced.
