Palm Oil Processing

POPSIG Best Final Year Design Award


Each year, POPSIG awards Best Final Year Design Award to a group of final year students, whose final year project design revolves around palm oil processing. The main objective of this award is to encourage the universities to introduce palm oil processing design for their final year students. The selection of Best Final Year Design Award is based upon a palm oil processing design which reflects on efficiency, values inherent safety and mitigates environmental impacts, and demonstrates project viability to the palm oil industry.
