GREEN Processing with renewable fuel of Nature’s Approved Coconut Oil

On the slopes of an old inactive volcano on one of the 345 beautiful islands in Fiji, with tropical plants everywhere and a great view of the sea, careful waste avoidance, use of renewable fuel and a green operations have long been the rule.

Coconut husks and shells and old coconut trees fuel the boiler….that produces the steam…. that runs the steam engine…. that drives the generator…. that provides power for the coconut oil press, machinery and lights for the factory and worker’s homes. Large quantities of diesel fuel would have had to be burnt to substitute.

In 1961 the owner of the coconut plantation where our oil is produced, had a steam engine made to drawings and design of a steam engine which had been first built in 1895. This steam engine is used to drive the electric generator to produce power to run the oil press and other machinery and to provide light to the house and workers houses--energy production and recycling at its best.  

The fuel they use is some of the old coconut trees and all the coconut husks and shells from the coconuts that are opened for copra (copra is the dried meat or kernel of the coconut ..dried in warm air, then crushed in the press for its oil). This was done to reduce the consumption of diesel fuel in the diesel engine they had previously used to run the generator.

Old technology is here the most appropriate technology to take advantage of the reusable fuel. Their carbon footprint is very small for each ton of oil produced. Diesel is only used in the tractors and trucks. The old unproductive trees (often 70 years old and 80 ft high) are replaced in a cycle of 30 acres at a time (of the 1100 acre plantation) with new trees and coconuts growing again and taking up carbon dioxide from the air. The carbon is recycled.

The cost of diesel there today is 16 times as great as it was in 1961 and the wisdom to their use of renewable fuel has paid off in a huge reduction in expenditure on diesel.

Five years ago the plantation was certified organic to USDA. The owner is 80 now and his two sons do much of the work on the plantation today and continue the pattern and cycles of green technology.

This same coconut oil is used in the Natures Approved® organic soap produced on Fiji so we have the major component, the organic coconut oil in the soap, produced with green methods.

You can chose "green" extra virgin organic coconut oil and organic soap from Nature’s Approved® and help expand their operation and reward their efforts.
