Visitors to Plant

Last week, my scheduled was so tight. In a space of 2 days, I have to standby and wait for three different visitors who happen to be very important to the company. I have to ensure the plant is in extra clean and in good condition. Well, although the day and date is known, the exact time of visit to the control room and plant is unknown. There was no indication of what time they are coming. Therefore, I have to wait and do what ever work i can do in the control room. Well, that's fine, at least i can do a little bit of work using the PC available in the control room.

The first group of visitors were from Australia and they are oil traders. The second group was from the Iran ministry of health. The third group was from the ministry of Sabah. As for me, when all these visitors came, I have to explain briefly our process on how we convert crude palm (CPO) oil to refined bleached deodorized palm oil (RBDPO).

Ok. I need to check on that detail after this. However, I have some customer requirement that want to make biodiesel using RBDPO high colour. RBDPO high colour will be cheaper than the normal RBDPO that we processed. Normal RBDPO colour which ranged from 2.4R - 2.7R, need more bleaching earth to be dosed, and that cost a lot of money. High colour RBDPO around 2.9R - 3.5R will require less bleaching earth to reduced it's colour.
Later I'll check whether there is any company using CPO for biodiesel. Hopefully the info helps u...ok pidun....hehe
