STA Resources owns and manages 9 palm oil mills, 1 kernel crushing plant, 1 solvent extraction plant and 1 biogas powerplant, operating in North Sumatera, South Sumatera, West Kalimantan and Central Kalimantan.
By 2021, the group had processed over 1.8 million tonnes of fresh fruit bunches and produced over 383 thousand tonnes of crude palm oil (CPO) and 85 thousand tonnes of palm kernel. By the same period, the kernel crushing facility had produced over 39 thousand tonnes of crude palm kernel oil (CPKO) and generated 44 thousand tonnes of palm kernel expeller (PKE).
In such a competitive era, STA Resources makes it a priority to maintain the performance of all its plants, upholding the values of:
Consistency in operation and maintenance.
Always adapt to stay on top of the cutting-edge technology.
Actively optimizing and utilizing renewable energy.
Consistency in operation and maintenance
STA Palm Oil Mill is the first POM owned by STA Resources which has been operating for 25 years since 1996, and has successfully maintained its performance to date with the consistency in operations and maintenance by following the high standards. Even in 2020, successfully processed the FFB about 390,375 MT with 108% utilization.
Always adapt to stay on top of the cutting-edge technology
The first POM in STA Resources uses a capstan system to move lorries in and out of the sterilizer. Furthermore, 6 other POMs have used the indexer system, and even the newest POM has used the latest system, namely the compact indexer which is using FFB weighing hopper to be more accurate in the numbers of FFB processed, less rail track and minimize the manpower.
Actively optimizing and utilizing renewable energy
STA Resources seeks to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by capturing the methane gas released from the decomposing of the POM’s effluent (POME) and then converting it to generate the electricity by using a Gas Engine Generator.
