Palm is a plant of the Palmaceae and usually has a large, unbranched trunk covered with pinnate or palmate leaves. There are about one thousand known species, almost all of which grow in the tropics or subtropics. The wood, leaves, sap and fruits of many species of Palmae are very important to the domestic economy of many countries in the world. Among them, the most famous ones are cocoa palm, fanlike palm, wax palm, fanyeshutou palm and a variety of palms called curly palm and dwarf palm. It is well known that oil palm, date and coconut are economic crops throughout East Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
The harvest of all these palms has resulted in a considerable amount of biomass and waste. Biomass and waste are produced in many forms, most of which are from daily pruned palm leaves and empty fruit bunches. Most of the biomass and waste from harvesting palms has not been disposed of in a satisfactory manner. For example, the most common way to deal with leaves is to burn them. The burning of leaves causes a lot of pollution, which is not satisfactory. It is a more economic and reliable way to use organic fertilizer production equipment to make palm waste into fertilizer.
The value of palm waste
Each part of the oil palm waste can be used separately when harvesting oil palm, but a complete solution for the treatment of oil palm waste is still needed. The solution should be to use all of the waste and, through the treatment of oil palms, get sustainable by-products that are beneficial to the economy and the environment. Other palm crops are also faced with the problem of waste solution. For example, coconut trees also generate large amounts of waste, and they do not provide appropriate use or disposal methods. Usually these wastes are decomposed or decomposed in a pile for a long time.
Organic fertilizer made from palm waste
The palm waste is crushed, and other organic wastes such as manure and sludge are added for fermentation. The decomposed palm compost is then subjected to a series of finishing processes by organic fertilizer production equipment. The organic fertilizer granulator can make the compost into granule products, and can also make different compound fertilizer products according to the need of fertilization. The small-scale palm organic fertilizer processing can adopt disc granulator machine and other equipment. The recycling of palm waste into organic fertilizer is a way that is conducive to the sustainable development of economy and environment.
