By leveraging tissue culture technique, Mitra Ayu successfully demonstrates the potential of tissue culture in meeting the demands of a growing market while promoting sustainability and conservation. 


Making Briquette from Waste

We have successfully recycled and repurposed 100% of our solid waste. We recycled our solid waste and turned it into briquette which then used as fuel hence eliminates the need for coal. The ashes are used to neutralize the soil pH in our plantation.


Palm Shells for Fuel

The practice of recycling waste and making briquette is good, but it takes a lot of energy to produce the briquette. We are looking at alternative of using palm shells for fuel to save on

electricity and to reuse our solid waste as organic fertilizer and soil mixture. The ashes from palm shells can also be used to neutralized the soil pH.
