Malaysia is second to Indonesia for being the largest producer and exporter of palm
oil. When the fresh bunch had been pruned and harvested, the palm oil industries
generate wastes which are biomass potential. One of them include oil palm frond
(OPF). OPF makes up more than 50% of the total biomass generated. OPF has higher
volatile matter, lower ash content, and fixed carbon when being compared with
hardwood, which signifies better burning efficiency.
The objective of this final year project is to characterize the solid biomass fuel pellets
which consist of different portion of oil palm frond (OPF) and sugarcane bagasse (SC).
The study involves conducting several analyses; density determination, proximate
analysis, ultimate analysis and calorific value determination.
