Raw shrimp shells are selected as an alternate nitrogen supplement to improve the quality of empty fruit bunch (EFB) compost as an organic fertilizer. The composting of EFB and raw shrimp shells with POME was performed in laboratory scale at three different temperatures. Better characteristics and quality of EFB compost was obtained at 40°C. An empirical model was developed to represent relationship between nitrogen content of EFB compost and respective process variables

Effect of Isolated Mesophilic Bacterial Consortium on the Composting Process of Pressed–Shredded Empty Oil Palm Fruit BunchLai, Jia; Chua, Han; Saptoro, Agus; Ang, Ha Ming (2013)Empty fruit bunch (EFB) is one of the main solid wastes generated from palm oil mills. Incineration and mulching have been employed traditionally to process EFB. This method of waste treatment becomes a great concern since ...
