Product Description

What’s EFB?

EFB, short for Empty Fruit Bunch, is a byproduct palm fiber of palm oil mills. It is abundant in palm oil plants mainly in South East Asia. As a good source of biomass waste, it doesn’t contain any chemical or mineral additives.

EFB is a fibrous material with fiber length of 10-20 cm, so it should be shredded before processing. Since the moisture content in EFB is about 67%, pre-processing is necessary before making into renewable pellets to meet the energy demand of palm oil mills or any other industries.

According to the survey, the palm fiber pellet mill line can be connected with palm oil industry. Therefore, the EFBs can be put into practice close to palm oil plant for lowering transportation costs.

EFB/palm fiber is a special kind of first grade pelletizing raw material, but it is also hard to process because of its high water and oil content as well as its great obdurability and hardness. So, to process palm fiber requires exclusive equipments.

Why EFBs are made into pellets?

Can’t we just throw the EFB biomass into the EFB boilers or EFB power plant directly? The reason of converting EFBs into pellets are as follow:

1. Generally, the energy content of EFB biomass will be increased after being converted into pellets.

2. Densified EFB pellet fuel or briquettes enjoying a calorific value between 4,200 – 4,900 kg cal/kg 28 can be used to substituted coals to ease energy pressure and environment pressure.

3. EFB pellets is sustainable and renewable and can be produced in large scales which also can be friendly to environment.

4. EFB pellets are densified and clean and can be easily transported and stored. EFB pellets generate little smoke while burning.


Dryer: it can dry the palm fiber and decrease its moisture content from 30-50% to 8-18%, which is suitable for pelletizing.

Palm fiber crusher: it can cut the palm fiber into 3-5mm length.

Palm fiber pellet mill: it can press the crushed palm fiber into dense cylinder pellets. The pellet mill designed by GEMCO can make pellets without adding any binder.

Cooler: it is efficient in decreasing the temperature of hot EFB pellets, so that they can be packed directly after cooling.

Palm fiber pellets packing machine: you can choose to pack the EFB pellets in small bags for sale, or large bags for sale or storage.

Various of EFB pellets can be made based on the different requirements of the consumers. On investing EFB biomass pellet production, the following suggestions from successful EFB pellet plant investors should be considered:

1. Overall understanding of EFB pellet production line is necessary.

2. EFB pellet production procedures should meet the requirement of target markets.

3. Raw materials should be sufficient and should ensure the continuity of pellet production.

4. Quality of the raw materials should guaranteed. Raw materials with moisture content of 15%, is ideal while when it goes upper than 15%, the raw materials should be dried.

5. Location of the EFB pellet plant should be convenient for raw materials transportation.

6. A feasible survey is necessary to be conducted beforehand.

As for a typical EFB pellet production, it should consisted of EFBs shredding, drying, grinding, pelletizing, cooling, sieving, dust recycling and packing.

Usually, in an entire EFB production line the following equipment are involved:

1. Electric cabinet( to control equipment in the whole EFB production line)

2. EFB shredder(to get EFB biomass into proper size for dryer)

3. Dryer(to get the moisture content ready for pelletizing)

4. Hammer mill ( to grind the proper sized and dried materials into power for pelletizing)

5. EFB pellet machine( to pelletize the prepared materials into pellets)

6. Cooler( to cooler down the newly extruded hot pellets and hard the pellets)

7. Packing machine( to bag EFB pellets according to requirements).
