At Tanah Makmur Berhad, we also produce CPO, PK and compost fertilizer. The production of CPO and PK is carried out by SJ Palm Oil Mill, While the production of compost fertilizer is carried out by Alur Lestari.
Our palm oil mill is strategically located within close proximity to several of our major plantation estates, which helps ensure that we can provide FFB sourced from our own plantation estates for the production of CPO and PK as well as to ensure the quality of the FFB that arrives at our mill is consistently maintained. The ripeness of FFB harvested is critically in maximizing the quality and quantity of palm oil extracted. Ideally, harvested fruits are usually processed withing 48 hours to minimize the build up of FFA.
We have also implemented an effective waste management system in our mill operation, whereby waste such as shredded EFB and slurry generated from the production of our CPO and PK can be re-processed by using microbes to decompose and recycle the waste into compost fertilizer. In 2010, we began the construction of a compost plant situated next to our palm oil mill to carry out the production of compost fertilizer. The compost plant was completed and commissioned in 2012. The operation of the compost plant is carried out by Alur Lestari.
