Production process does not weigh the side effect of their waste to nature, it would lead to the environmental impacts. Cleaner Production (CP) is a concept that is moving towards the pollution prevention rather than end of pipe pollution control. The production of crude palm oil (CPO) known as a dominant of carbon dioxide emission contributor to the global warming. The aim of this study is to identify the unit process of palm oil mill that contributes to the carbon dioxide emission. The selected entity for carbon dioxide emission in this case is from solid waste generation, electricity consumption, wastewater generation, diesel consumption, solid fuel consumption and water consumption. These entities is calculated to find the biggest contributor of carbon dioxide emission and linear regression analysis is performed to validate the data. Furthermore, the relationship between independent variables and dependent variables is studied to determine the selective entity has high correlation or lack of correlation for further discussion by using regression analysis. This study calculates the carbon dioxide emission by using the method that approved by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Based on this study, solid fuel consumption has the highest contribution for the carbon dioxide emission to the environment followed by wastewater generated. Moreover, this these entities has a high correlation between amounts of fresh fruit bunch (FFB) produced and number of working hour in palm oil mill. Therefore, this two entity is suggested to implement CP options in order to reduce carbon dioxide emission significantly.
