Development of Nipa Palm Tart
The Nipa palm has a short, mainly underground, horizontal trunk (from above ground it appears to have no trunk at all) and very large, erect leaves up to 9 meters (30 feet) tall. The leaves are divided into leaflets. A flowering head forms on a short erect stern that rises among the palm leaves. The flowers are globular shape with catkin-like red or yellow flowers on the lower branches. The flowers yield a woody nut arranged in a cluster. This fruiting (seed) head is dark brown and may be 30 centimeters (12 inches) in diameter. The ripe nuts separate from the cluster and float away.

The nipa palm is one of the most important economic Philippine crops. It differs from most palm in the lack of an upright stem, trunkless, developing inflorescences at 1 meter height. The leaves are commonly use for thatching. Leaflets are used for making hats, baskets, mats, raincoats, wrappings for suman. The midribs are used for making brooms; the petioles for fuel.
Nipa is a monoecious palm, with stout, subterranean, trunkless and thornless rootstock. Leaves are at the ends of the rootstocks, large, rosette and compound, 5 to 10 meters long, arising from the stout underground stem (rhizome). Leaflets are numerous, rigid, lanceolate, up to 1 meter long, 2 to 7 cm centimeters wide. Male inflorescence is brown, erect, up to 1 meter high. Female inflorescence is stout, 1 meter high or less. Fruit is globose, nodding, up to 30 centimeters in diameter. Carpels are numerous, dark-brown, striate, smooth, 10 to 14 centimeters long, compressed, obovate. Seeds are hard, white, and as large as a hen's egg. Fermented nipa sap contains high amount of ethanol, together with higher alcohols, esters, diacetyl, and acetoin.Nipa is a source of alcohol, sugar and vinegar.The fermented juice, tuba, is extensively used as beverage. Decoction of fresh…...

The earliest archaeological evidence of palm oil has been found in an Egyptian Tomb in Abydos. These two facts point to two inferences. One, that palm oil production was happening even 5000 years ago. Secondly, as no palm oil was produced in Egypt, this means that Palm Oil trading also was prevalent at that time. Thus, Palm Oil has been used by mankind since historical times. A basic description of the palm oil extraction process is shown below: (Source: Malaysian Oil Palm Publication Annual Report 2011) History of Palm Oil in Malaysia Palm Oil was introduced in Malaysia by in 1910 by Scotsman William Sime and English banker......

Nipa Palm Husk

...Abstract This investigatory project was conducted to prove if nipa palm fruit husk, distilled water, Ferrous Sulfate and gum Arabic can produce an ink that can be substituted to commercial ink. In conducting the experiment, the researchers gathered nipa fruits, these were cut into small portions and weighed into 200 grams. The reduced fruits were soaked in a mixture of 100ml distilled water and 1 gram Ferrous Sulfate (FeSO4) as solvent, vinegar, and salt. Theset-up was boiled for one hour. After boiling the mixture was filtered to separate the black filtrate from undissolved particles. On a laser bond paper the ink produced was tested after being refilled to a pen and was compared to other synthetic commercial ink available in the market. The conductivity and transmittance time , drying time and luminance and adhesion were tested and compared. Results of the test showed that the experimental ink with a proportion of 200 grams nipa palm fruit husk, 100 ml distilled water, 1 gram ferrous sulfate and ½ tablespoon of salt and ½ tablespoon of vinegar produced an output with the highest conductivity and transmittance time, drying time and luminance and adhesion. With the cost of production much lower than that of a commercial ink and having no significant difference in the mean property to the commercial ink the Nipa Palm Fruit Husk Ink proved to be more economical to......

Introduction of Petrobras

...crisis in 1973, the search for new energy sources restarted. In 1975, Brazil launched the National Alcohol Program (known as Proálcool) – the largest program for the commercial use of biomass for energy purposes in the world. Two years later, Professor Expedito Parente, of the Ceará Federal University, discovered biodiesel made from cotton oil and, in 1980, he registered the first world wide biodiesel patent, now in the public domain. Throughout the world, with the passing of the years and the intermittent energy crises, associated to a greater demand for fossil fuels, new and strong stimuli emerged for the development of production technologies both for ethanol and biodiesel. These two products are starting to have a leading role in the world’s energy matrix and in the international fuel market. Thanks to its climate, geography, vast areas available for cultivating grain and sugar cane and, also, the high technology developed by Petrobras, in the past few years Brazil has become, in world terms, one of the largest producers of biofuels, with a singular and enviable potential Presentation for growth. Currently, nine out of ten cars sold in Brazil have flex fuel engines, that is, they are powered by gasoline and alcohol. Bus fleets, trains and trucks powered by biodiesel are already in use – and the trend, certainly, is for this market to grow considerably in the next few years. Exactly for this reason and to explain the importance of biofuels, their markets and......

Globalization a Very Short Introduction

...Globalization: A Very Short Introduction by Manfred B. Steger is a book outlining the concept of globalization. Steger looks at the perception of globalization from an economical, political, cultural and ecological standpoint. By analyzing and reviewing Globalization: A Very Short Introduction, I will look on Steger's view of globalization focusing on the economical, political, cultural and ecological standpoint, which will explain both the causes and effects of globalization. What Exactly is Globalization? Steger introduces his book by first defining globalization. He explains that many scholars have a one sided view of globalization as oppose to viewing globalization as a whole, seeing that globalization is an uneven process (Steger, 11). He refers this to the parable of the blind scholars and the elephant, and explained how each scholar had very different descriptions of what an elephant is (11). In a similar way, there are different views on globalization. Steger defined globalization as the intensification of worldwide social relations which link distant localities in such a way that local happenings are shaped by events occurring many miles away and vice versa. (13) Is Globalization a New Phenomenon? This question was answered by looking at the four approaches to globalization (18-19). By doing this Steger comes up with an answer, which one is inclined to agree with. He stated, "globalization is an ancient process that, over many countries, has distinct......

GDP growth has averaged almost 6% over the last decade with a population growth averaging at 1.4%. Indonesia’s population is expected to grow at an annual growth rate of 0.57% to over 271 million by 2030. Indonesia’s industrial sector largely dominates production, contributing over 48% to aggregate economic activity (including oil and gas which accounts for 10% of GDP). The palm oil industry has the potential to generate significant social and economic development in Indonesia. It is Indonesia’s largest agricultural export and provides income and economic development to the large proportion of rural poor Indonesia. In recent decades the global market for palm oil has seen exponential growth with current production estimated at over 45 million tons, with Indonesia being one of the world’s, largest producers and exporters, producing over 18 million tons of palm oil annually. Although only contributing 8 % to GDP, the palm oil plantations provide for around two thirds of rural household incomes. Over 41% of plantations were owned by small......

In order to stop global warming and to promote sustainable development, renewable energy is a perfect solution to achieve both targets. Presently million hectares of land in Malaysia is occupied with oil palm plantation generating huge quantities of biomass. In this context, biomass from oil palm industries appears to be a very promising alternative as a source of raw materials including renewable energy in Malaysia. Thus, this paper aims to present current scenario of biomass in Malaysia covering issues on availability and sustainability of feedstock as well as current and possible utilization of oil palm biomass. This paper will also discuss feasibility of some biomass conversion technologies and some ongoing projects in Malaysia related to utilization of oil palm biomass as a source of renewable energy. Based on the findings presented, it is definitely clear that Malaysia has......

...There has been debate over the present day characteristics of biomes of tropical regions. For some, they are seen as a natural response to the climate of the area, whereas for others they are regarded as a product of human interference. Discuss the statement in the context of the tropical biome you have studied. [40] A tropical rainforest is an ecosystem type that occurs roughly within the latitudes 28 degrees north or south of the equator (in the equatorial zone between the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn). This ecosystem experiences high average temperatures and a significant amount of rainfall. In particular, I will be focusing on Borneo Rainforest, which is the oldest rainforest in the world. The island is divided among three countries (figure 1): Malaysia and Brunei in the north, and Indonesia to the south. Approximately 73% of the island is Indonesian territory. In the north, the East Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak make up about 26% of the island. Climate is the average weather the region receives over a 30 year period. Climate can be on a global scale or a local scale, for instance where it is mountainous more rainfall is generated therefore that region sees a different climate to perhaps a neighbouring region. Aspect and altitude also affects climate, which will be explored in greater detail. The purpose of this essay is to explore whether the natural, climatic factors have influenced the characteristics of the rainforest, or whether humans have......

Cold Hardy Palms Wont Grow Here

...Cold Hardy Palms in the Northern States Growing cold hardy palms in the north is not as difficult as you would think. There are several species that are able to survive into a USDA zone 6 with little to no protection. They are from different parts of the world and are native to places that do see winter time cold weather. Since most people see a palm tree as a sign of the tropics, they never realize that they can be grown in places outside of Florida. What people fail to understand is that while Florida may have a warm Sub-Tropical Climate. Even Florida can get cold. There has been recorded snow flurries in Miami Fl. While the all-time record low in the state is minus three degrees Fahrenheit. The first species is called the Needle Palm. It is the coldest hardy of all palm trees in the world. It is native to the northern sections of Florida and into the coastal regions of Georgia and southern South Carolina. This palm can withstand short temperature drops to minus fifteen Fahrenheit. It is slow growing palm that rarely reaches more than eight feet when mature. It is not a A-sexual tree and must have a male and female plant to reproduce. The Needle Palm is endangered in the wild but is fairly common in Cultivation. The second tree is the Sabal Minor. This tree is also A United States Native. It can be found from the lower Piedmont of North Caroline near the Virginia border to McCurtain County Oklahoma. Its native range is larger then any other Palm of......
