Book Description:
This book covers topics related to impacts and challenges in the oil palm production chain (with sustainability in mind) and consists of nine chapters. Three chapters deal with the upstream aspect, including a holistic approach in the sustainability analysis of oil palm processing; sustainable pest and disease management; and assessment on the impacts of oil palm plantations on butterfly fauna. Six chapters discuss downstream applications, including innovative pre-treatment methods and extraction mechanisms in crude palm oil (CPO) processing; challenges and potential of palm-based biomass and palm oil mill effluent for the production of sustainable power and value-added products; and innovative ways for extracting oil palm empty fruit bunch (EFB) lignin for nutraceutical and health supplements; reproducibility of natural resources for the synthesis of low transition temperature mixtures (LTTMS) as biomass pre-treatment; and reusing oil palm biomass waste to reinforce composite materials. Combining the expertise of leading researchers in their respective field, the book provides an overview on the impacts and challenges encountered in the sustainable oil palm production chain and offers a valuable reference work.

Book Reviews

Impacts and Challenges in Oil Palm Cultivation and Downstream Applications of Biomass is different from the usual books related to oil palm. Firstly, this book covers topics that are of great interest currently, such as sustainability and biomass. Secondly, it is holistic and covers important topics both upstream and downstream. Thirdly, the chapters are covered in great depth, making the book a useful read to those who seek new knowledge and information. Fourthly, the book provides the reader with the latest information.” - F.K. Yew, Senior Fellow/Consultant, Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC)

"This book highlights the academia views of the oil palm industry especially on the sustainability of certain aspect of upstream activities, as well as on palm oil processing and biomass utilization. Oil palm, being the most productive and sustainable oil bearing crop in the world, deserve such highlights. This mini compilation would be a complement to a dozen of existing books by many well-known experts in the oil palm industry globally." - Ahmad Parveez Ghulam Kadir, Deputy Director General (R & D), Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB)
