There are about 4,800 hectares of Pineapple farming at Chiang Rai province, harvesting species of Nang Lea, Puh Lea, Pattawia pineapples. D.K.K Enterprise found an opportunity in Pineapple leaf fiber (PALF) production that it would provide a way to make a sustainable and additional income for Pineapple farmers, at the same time it could contribute to the consumer’s demand.

GREEN RECYCLE PRACTICE OF D.K.K. 

D.K.K.’s best practice in PALF production pursues with the local circular agriculture which benefits three parties:
 
  • manufacturer
  • raw material suppliers (farmers)
  • and its community
     
In current practice, the harvested Pineapple leaves are decorticated by a machine to extract the fiber. The residue after extracted fiber will be brought to Bio-mas tank which generates electric power from the bio gas. The anaerobic fermented bio-mas will be returned to the soil as healthy compost at free of charge to the farmers.
