ANJ-CIRAD-BARFormula Study on Composting Innovation Published in Prominent Journal

20 Jul 2020

 

A study on waste management at ANJ, conducted in partnership with CIRAD and BARFormula, was published in the March 2020 issue of The Planter journal, a prominent monthly publication of the Incorporated Society of Planters. ANJ is proud of the recognition from the plantation community and is pleased to play a role in the dissemination of environmentally sustainable practices and innovations.

This article explains about waste reduction and nutrient recovery during co-composting of Empty Fruit Bunches (EFB) and Palm Oil Mill Effluents (POME), two of the main palm oil mill by-products. The experiment was carried out in May-July 2016 in one of ANJ’s mill in Belitung Island and aimed to find out the conditions that allows the most effective reduction of liquid and solid waste.

As part of its Zero Waste Policy, ANJ has applied the innovative practice of co-composting EFB and POME in Belitung to produce organic fertilizers. This is then used as a replacement for conventional fertilizer, leading to a 29% reduction in the use of inorganic applications. It is hoped the study results can further disseminate the practice and contribute to the improvement of waste management in the palm oil sector. ANJ will continue to invest in agronomy research and welcomes cooperation with research organizations and universities to further advance the field.
