Annual Report

2016

Waste Management

The

Plantation Division

adheres to a “zero waste” policy

by recycling waste and by-products. At our palm oil mill in

Indonesia, oil mill wastes comprising POME and EFB are

converted into organic fertilizer or compost which is then

applied directly at oil palm fields as a source of nutrients

and to supplement fertilizer application. We monitor and

treat all effluent and wastewater before discharging into the

natural waterways. At PTNJL, the organic materials in the

wastewater are broken down by natural activities of anaerobic

and aerobic bacteria. This process eliminates the need to

add chemicals before the water is discharged and this has

resulted in successful fish breeding at the final effluent pond.

The new palm oil mill complex proposed to be built in Miri will

also include a zero-discharge composting plant.
