Extraction of valuable materials from sugar cane, kenaf and paper waste

This technology can convert major agriculture waste especially in our country (banana stem, coconut husk, sugarcane bagasse, kenaf and paper) to valuable materials using completely harmless water. Totally free toxic organic solvents. • It is lower process cost, mild operating conditions and environmental sustainability. Short period of extraction (5 min).

The reaction time is the imitation. This research limits reaction time to determine the optimum highest yield. Increasing the reaction time will increase the cost of manufacturing.

This technology can convert plant-based wastes (organic matters) to valuable materials. Lignocelluloses that contains sugar to bioethanol. Lactic acid to bio-plastics. The crude oil (tar) can be used as biodiesel / biofuel. • Feedstock can be obtained from abundant agricultural waste, heating temperature is not very high (< 330 °C), and shorter extraction time (reaction) at 5 min. Low electrical usage.
