Palm Oil Refining 140121



Find solutions to your challenges


For decades Alfa Laval has provided palm oil mills with efficient equipment to convert sterilized and pressed palm fruit into crude oil, playing a key part in shaping the design of today’s oil room.

POME management

It is estimated that 0.65 tonnes of raw Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) is produced for every ton of fresh fruit bunches (FFB). In recent times, stringent environmental protection regulations have been put in place by local authorities.


Crude fats and oils always contain impurities that have to be removed – and there is a growing focus on the food safety and environmental parameters on how you do it.


Many palm oil producers have extensive untapped resources in the form of under-exploited feed stock.

Margarine and shortening

Alfa Laval can help you optimize your processes and select the right equipment.
