Palm kernel nut is an everyday good used by Industries. Once they are processed by the palm nut shelling and separating machine, the palm kernel nut is separated from palm kernel shell and they are used in the production of palm kernel oil and palm nut cake. Palm kernel oil is used in the production of soaps and other food products while the cake is used in the production of animal feeds. While on the other hand the palm kernel shells are required in large quantity in the production of bio-fuel, road construction amongst other uses.
Palm Kernel Oil
Palm kernel oil which is a white to yellowish oil of vegetable origin is known to confer special attractive physical features and aroma to baked bread. It is also used for making other baked products such as cakes and biscuits. Palm kernel oil is semi-solid at room temperature and can last for long periods of time, so it is suitable for making margarine, chocolate and some other related food products. Palm kernel oil is also used at home as cooking oil.
Palm kernel oil is a major ingredient for the large-scale production of various types of soap, detergents, hair creams, body creams, and all kinds of body cream and pomades.
Palm kernel oil can be used as biodiesel fuel for the vehicle.
Palm Kernel Cake
Besides oil and protein, palm kernel cake has high fiber content and high phosphorus to calcium ratio and also it is rich in essential elements such as magnesium, iron, and zinc, which makes it suitable for feed ingredient. Therefore palm kernel cake as an important ingredient for the formulation of animal feeds can be pelletized with other nutritional ingredients by the feed pellet machine into feed pellets. These feed pellets are not only excellent for ruminants but also suitable for swine, poultry, horses, etc.
Palm Kernel Shell
In rural community levels, palm kernel shells are used in their crude form for heating during cooking. However, it burns with a lot of smoke due to its organic content. The effect of such smoke to health cannot be overemphasized. Thanks to the modern machine—Biomass Briquette Machine, this problem can be solved easily. Briquetting can remove these inadequacies and make for efficient and sustainable use of palm kernel shell. The palm kernel shells are converted into briquettes by adopting the very simple process, utilizing readily available and affordable materials. The briquettes produced from palm kernel shell were tested for their combustion and physical characteristics. Therefore another affordable biomass fuel comes out to meet the world’s growing demand for energy.
Due to these widely uses of palm kernel nut by-products, the market of palm kernel nut is expanding, which will bring more economic effects of palm kernel nuts. Therefore palm kernel nuts is a profitable investment for you.
