Nanofluid based photovoltaic thermal (PVT) incorporation in palm oil production process

Full Article

Abstract—The palm oil industry is very important and affects other industries and markets around the world. The two most dominant countries in palm oil production are Malaysia and Indonesia. More solutions are proposed by researchers to increase the sustainability aspect of the palm oil process. This paper presents an idea of emerging the solar energy industry and the palm oil industry to achieve higher levels of sustainability. PVT panel in particular are high efficiency energy conversion systems that allow to produce electricity and thermal energy in the same area. The thermal energy produced could be used for pre-heating the water for the sterilization process. The system, if implemented, can help investors save energy, time and money. Above all, reduce the carbon footprint of the process.
