Dangers associated with the carriage of palm kernel shells

Overview

Palm kernel shells are not to be confused with palm kernel expellers which is listed in the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes ( IMSBC) Code under the generic entries of the various categories of seed cakes. Palm kernel shells are not listed in the IMSBC Code at the moment due to ongoing investigation about the actual properties of the cargo which does not in any way mitigate the dangers that these cargoes carry should one decide to go ahead and fix a shipment o it.
