Sizer to speak at Malaysian Biomass conference

Sizer has been invited to speak at the Malaysian biomass conference Biomass-SP in May 2012, a joint EU-Malaysian collaboration project. Specifically the paper and presentation will describe Sizer’s latest work with the pelleting of palm tree fibres and kernels. The project is in collaboration with our equipment partners CHE Pte Ltd based in Malaysia and Singapore.

Pelleting trials are ongoing at our facility in South Yorkshire to determine the most effective way of pelletising these palm residues (OPT pellets pictured). The results will be presented at the international conference next year. There is currently 19m tonnes of palm waste that can be diverted into biomass fuels and Sizer is at the forefront of providing pelleting technology into this market.
