Abstract

Physical characteristics of empty fruit bunch (EFB) briquettes produced under various heating temperatures were investigated experimentally. Empty fruit bunch (EFB) fibers were firstly grinded and sieved into pulverized form with the particle size of <300 μm . It was then compressed at the pressure of 7 MPa and under heating temperatures of 150-210 oC. The density of the briquettes was determined by using stereometric method while the compressive strength was determined by using machine Instron 600dx. It was found that density of briquettes produced is not really affected by the heating temperature. However, the compressive strength is improved when the heating temperature is increased. Overall, it can be said that the values of strength of all briquettes are sufficient to resist mechanical disintegration.
