Palm Kernel Shell
Palm kernel shell is a by-product in the production of palm oil and is commonly used in the natural biomass energy industry. Palm kernel shells (or PKS) are the shell fractions left after the nut has been removed after crushing in the Palm Oil mill. It is a fibrous material, brownishyellow in colour and can be easily handled in bulk directly from the product line to the end use. Due to its high calorific value, averaging 4000 Kcal/kg, and low ash content, it is considered an attractive source of fuel in the production of energy from renewable sources.

PKS has big and small shell fractions and are mixed with dust-like fractions and small fibers.

The moisture value in PKS is low, compared to other biomass residues with different sources suggesting values between 11-13%. PKS contain traces of Palm Oil, which contributes for its higher heating value than average lignocellulosic biomasses. If you compare with other residues from the industry, it's a good quality biomass fuel with uniform size distribution, easy to handle, easy to crush and has limited biological activity due to the low moisture it contains.
