In coping with the burgeoning water challenges and rising demand, the Palm Oil Mills are relying on technology for a better resources management and water conservation. Palm oil mill effluent (POME) is generated mainly from oil extraction, washing and cleaning processes in the mill.
Anaerobic digestion is widely used as a primary treatment for palm oil mill effluent. Biogas is produced in the process in the amount of 20 m 3 per ton FFB. This effluent could be used for biogas production through anaerobic digestion. At many Palm-oil mills this process is already in place to meet water quality standards for industrial effluent.

Palm oil industries have great achievement in term of economics. Palm oil trees are originally from West Africa is brought by the British in Malaya in the early 1870's as an
CR because of variation of palm oil mill effluent quality and quantity from palm oil mill industry. Key words: Palm oil mill effluent, Aerobic and anaerobic treatment, COD, biogas, Methane. inTrODuCTiOn Palm oil mill effluent (POME) is a viscous brown liquid with fine suspended solids at pH between 4 and 51 and a highly polluting wastewater
Indonesia is the largest palm oil producer in the world. The palm oil mills process fresh fruit bunches (FBB) and produce two main products: Crude Palm Oil (CPO) and Palm Kernel Oil (PKO). The process generates abundant waste water called palm oil mill effluent (POME). The POME is then converted ...
contributor and impressive export and production of palm oil. Then, a huge production of the effluent has turned out to be main source of water pollution . The Malaysian experience in effluent control in the palm oil industry due to the opening of the factory vastly. Palm oil mill effluent (POME) contains a high concentration of organic matter.
The generation of palm oil mill effluent (POME) alongside with the production of crude palm oil has created environmental issue for the palm oil mill industry in Malaysia due to its polluting characteristics. POME with its high organic content is a source with great potential for biogas production.
POME is an oily wastewater generated by palm oil processing mills and consists of various suspended components. This liquid waste combined with the wastes from steriliser condensate and cooling water is called palm oil mill effluent.

Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) Palm Oil processing also gives rise to highly polluting waste-water, known as Palm Oil Mill Effluent, which is often discarded in disposal ponds, resulting in the leaching of contaminants that pollute the groundwater and soil, and in the release of methane gas into the atmosphere. POME could be used for biogas ...
In Malaysia, palm oil extraction generates about 50 million tons of palm oil mill effluent (POME) annually . This situation leads to the production of highly pollutant waste from palm oil mill. POME consists of 95-96% of water, 0.6-0.7% of oil and 4-5% of total solids where half of it was a suspended solid consisting of debris from
Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) is known to cause serious environmental hazards due to its high biochemical (BOD) and chemical oxygen demand (COD) if disposed without proper treatment. Moreover, the processing of palm fruit causes POME to have fibre and husk resulting in high level of total suspended solids (TSS) and turbidity.
Palm oil is an edible vegetable oil derived from the mesocarp (reddish pulp) of the fruit of the oil palms, primarily the African oil palm Elaeis guineensis, and to a lesser extent from the American oil palm Elaeis oleifera and the maripa palm Attalea maripa.

The consumptive water use evaluation for direct water was based on the local water stress index (WSI). The system boundary included the oil palm nursery, plantation (with land use change from oil palm to oil palm, and from logged-over forest to oil palm) and palm oil mill (in a biogas capture scenario).
