All organic plantation wastes and by-products from our milling activities are reused, recovered and recycled. Palm oil mill effluent (POME), empty fruit bunches (EFB), fibres and shells are the by-products of our crude palm oil (CPO) production.



Treated POME is collected, returned and reused in our plantations as organic fertiliser. POME is collected in anaerobic open ponds on our estates for treatment and POME parameters are monitored regularly to ensure their compliance with the government regulated limit for effluent land application. In addition to POME, EFB are also applied to land as organic fertiliser. EFB can be applied as mulch to conserve moisture, improve soil fertility, and reduce weed growth. Fibres and shells are used to generate power in our palm oil mills and refineries for our boiler.


We have an operational procedure covering hazardous waste handling activities including leakage handling. Hazardous waste streams include pesticide packaging, expired pesticides, used batteries, used lubricants and filters, empty paint cans and printer cartridges and needles from health clinics. All hazardous waste streams are segregated, labelled and stored within secure, fire resistant temporary storage facilities that are equipped with spillage containment kits, alarms, firefighting equipment and first aid kits. Facilities are inspected weekly and waste is collected by licensed third-party hazardous waste collectors. These procedures fulfill the international and national sustainability standards.
