Production of fuel briquettes form nipa palm shell mixed with fat dregs
MetadataShow full item record
This research is to study the production of fuel briquettes from the Nipa palm and Fat dregs in the ratio 1:0, 1:0.1 and 1:0.3 kg, respectively. We performed a study of the properties of the fuel briquette produced and also study the heating value, moisture content, ash, volatile matter and fixed carbon. The results showed that the heating value of the fuel briquette is the most fuel briquette sclera ratio of fat and the residue was 1:0.3.The heating value of 5,370 calories per gram. Followed by fuel briquette ratio 1:0.1 and 1:0 with heating value of 5,300 and 5,280 calories per gram respectively. The results also showed that increasing the amount of fat dregs ingredients make heating value of fuel briquettes increase as well. Also when the fuel briquette production tested by igniting the fuel briquette with no mixing of Fat dregs can ignite flammable, odorless and smokeless. Fuel briquettes that are mixed in a ratio of 1:0.1 and 1:0.3 of fat can ignite flammable. The smell of burning grease and smoke residue to consider using a combination of fat dregs in fuel briquette for reduce the amount of waste that could affect the environment.
