Pemanfaatan Pelepah Kelapa Sawit (Elaeis guineensis) Dengan Penambahan Pati Kulit Singkong (Manihot utilissima) Dalam Pembuatan Briket
Palm briquette briquette production as one of the fuel substitutes that began to thin and as a source of renewable alternative energy is done with the addition of cassava starch. This research used Factorial Randomized Complete Design (RAL) with two replications. Factor I is the addition of cassava husk starch with a password (P) consisting of 4 levels, namely: P1 = 5%, P2 = 10%, P3 = 15%, P4 = 20%. Factor II is the drying temperature with the code (S) consisting of 4 levels, namely: S1 = 1000C, S2 = 1100C, S3 = 1200C, S4 = 1300C. Parameters observed included heating value, moisture content, ash content. Statistical analysis result on each parameter show: The addition of Cassava Starch has a very significant different effect (P <0.01) on the calorific value. The addition of Cassava Starch gave a very significant different effect (P <0.01) on Briket Water Content. The addition of Cassava Starch gave a very significant different effect (P <0.01) on Ash Content in Briquette.
