- Palm Fruit Receiving and Storage
Workers receive palm fruit and transport it to the factory for weighing. Then pour it into the palm fruit slope for storage. When it is necessary to process, open the discharge door and the palm fruit will fall to the conveyor and transport it to the sterilizing section.
- Sterilizing Section
Using high temperature to prevent the palm fruit from continuing to rancid. Palm fruit is steamed at 300KPa for 30 minutes, reducing the activity of the enzyme and preventing the acid price from rising.
- Threshing Section
Palm fruit accounts for 60% of palm fruit bunches. In this section, rotating cylinder is used to separate palm fruit.
- Separation Section
This section mainly destroys the palm peel and separates the palm pulp and nuts. Crush the palm flesh, destroy the nucleus and prepare for the next squeeze.
- Palm Oil Pressing section
Spiral palm oil press machine is adopted to extract oil from the palm fruit. After pressing, the crude palm oil that is mixed with water, cake (fiber cake) are obtained.
- Crude Palm Oil Filtration
The palm oil filter machine is used to separate the fibers in the crude palm oil. The oil water is then separated by precipitation. After separation, the oil was filtered and dried under vacuum for pure and clean crude palm oil.
- Palm Oil Refining
Through degumming, deacidification, decolorization, deodorizing and more palm oil refining process, the crude palm oil is turned into refined palm oil for all purposes. (You may also like Palm Oil Refinery Plant Cost >>)

Honduras Palm Oil Production Industry
Honduras is a country in Central America that is the largest producer of palm oil. It holds approximately 45 percent of palm oil that is produced in the whole of Central America. It is the seventh largest producer in the whole world. Honduran palm oil processors export the 50% they produce, and the local industries consume the rest. When and how did the industry begin? African oil palm which originates from West Africa was introduced in Honduras in the year 1927. Most of Honduras is covered with rainforest thus its climate is conducive to growing African oil palm. The cultivation of the palm oil plantation was first in the northern part of Honduras. By the 1970s there were 11,000 hectares of the palm plantation. Currently, over 84000 hectares are covered with palm oil plantation, and the government is planning to increase to more land. They are planning to expand to over 200,000 hectares which is a considerable number. (Read more about Palm Oil Processing Business Plan >>)
Honduras - Top10 Palm Oil Producer
Most palm oil production takes place in the Carribean region of Honduras coast. In the coastal plains of Atlantida, Sula, and Aguan valleys are full of the palm plantations. Both small and large-scale farmers undertake farming. The small farmers have incorporated co-operatives which process their produce. The small-scale farmers work is to farm while the co-operative handle the extra work of exporting. There are several multinationals involved in manufacturing and processing the palm oil in the country. Their operations include cultivating vast tracts of land, and they also buy from small-scale farmers. Co-operatives hold about 30 percent of palm oil production while the co-operatives possess about 68 percent. Most of the palm oil manufactured in Honduras is used in the food industry. The palm oil manufactures margarine and cooking oil.

The government has even stepped in to broaden palm oil manufacturing and processing industry as worldwide demand increases. The increase in demand has increased due to the use of palm oil extracts as biofuel or agrifuel. The biofuel is used as an alternative to oil and does not emit harmful gases that pollute the environment. The production of biofuel from Honduran palm oil is very lucrative. The World Bank has led funding to corporations. The funding is to help the companies to grow more African Palm. The money is used to acquire more land which is used for subsistence farming to plant more African Palm. The expansion is all due to how Honduras will benefit from carbon trading. Carbon trading is when a country trades in renewable energy thus reducing carbon footprint in the world. More money will flow into the economy of Honduras as the world adapts to more renewable energy to prevent negative climate change.
Farmers, NGOs, and the government are co-operating to create a sustainable palm oil manufacturing and processing industry. They are preventing deforestation and use of harmful pesticides. The positive changes in the sector have led to increase in the production of palm oil. The growth continues to increase year after year. The growth is considerable in that no other country production is growing at that rate. With the high-quality palm oil production, the demand will continue to rise.
