Palm fruit press waste

hello everyone my name is Gary and my wife and i have just started our term in Ghana Africa where i am a Agriplus manager… in the same area where we are working another branch of the mission is running a palm fruit press. so they have alot of waste product which is the outside of the palm fruit with the oil squeezed out. so there is a big pile of it there that we are trying to decide wat to do with it. my personal thought was mulch for the farmers but i got to looking where the runoff water from the pile is going and the trees that are there are looking slightly brown so wat im wondering is it to much nutrients or is something with it not good fer plants. just thought id put it out here and see if n e one else dealt with any thing of this
