Palm

Overview

Our Company’s palm business covers company-owned plantations (nucleus) and the plasma-farmers’ plantations. Our Company entered the oil palm business in 1992 through the conversion of a part of the rubber plantation into oil palm plantation.

Oil Palm is a long-lived cultivated commercial crop, the fruit is further processed into crude palm oil (CPO), palm kernel (PK) and palm kernel oil (PKO). The derivative products are used as raw materials in food and nonfood industries. As an integrated agro-business, the yields of Our Company’s Oil Palm business segment are absorbed not only by the domestic and export markets, but also by the Oleochemical business segment in Our Company.

Oleochemicals

Overview

Oleochemicals are chemicals derived from renewable sources of vegetable oil and animal fat; they are alternatives to petrochemicals which are based on nonrenewable sources such as coal, crude oil and natural gas. Vegetable oil began to be used as the main raw material for oleochemicals industry after 1980. Crude palm oil (CPO) and palm kernel oil (PKO) are commonly used alternatives to be processed into various types of derivatives, as raw materials for its downstream industries, for both categories of food (including cooking oil, margarine, ice cream) or non-food (such as soaps, detergents, pharmaceutical products, cosmetics, industrial lubricants, agricultural chemicals and biofuel).

PT Bakrie Sumatera Plantations Tbk Oleochemical business segment covers the processing of fatty acid, fatty alcohol, and glycerin. Our Company also owns a refinery plant capable to produce olein, stearin and palm fatty acid distillate (PFAD).
