We Help You Increase Your Profits Exporting POME / Miko to Europe

Businesses based on waste are increasingly popular in Indonesia. The demand for waste-based raw materials for the biofuel industry in Europe is on the rise.

One of the favored waste-based raw materials is POME (Palm Oil Mill Effluent), also known as "miko." The general quality requirements for exported POME or Miko are as follows:

1. FFA (Free Fatty Acids) > 20%

2. Moisture & Impurities: Maximum 3%

3. Sulphur: 65 ppm

4. Total metal content: 250 ppm

In addition to quality requirements, POME exported to Europe must have an ISCC certificate. The International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) is a sustainable material certification system that can be applied globally. In simple terms, ISCC functions like a passport and visa for your company if you want to export biofeedstock materials like Used Cooking Oil and POME Oil (Miko) to the European market. Here is an example of an ISCC certificate.

We have assisted our clients, world-class global companies, in obtaining ISCC certification. For POME-producing companies, we have helped more than five mills in the Sumatra region obtain ISCC certification.

Now, these mills can comfortably and confidently sell POME to both local and international buyers.

Then, what if many small to medium-sized farmers or entrepreneurs only have waste as their raw material and produce PAO (Palm Acid Oil) or High Acid PAO? We can assist you with that as well.

For those in need of consulting services to obtain ISCC certification for your company and POME/Miko materials, please contact us at +62822 1073 3836 or email us at

In addition to ISCC certification, we can also help you with consulting services to obtain INS certification for the Italian market (which is also attractive in terms of pricing and returns). We will explain more about the INS standard in a future post.
