Background: This research aimed to evaluate the use of natural resin as a binder for the production of fuel briquette from solid waste biomass.
Methods: Proximate analyses were made for fuel briquette prepared from solid waste biomass using natural resin as a binder in comparison with using starch as a binder.
Results: The results for density, percent content of moisture, percent content of volatile matter, percent content of ash, percent content of fixed carbon, and the caloric value of solid waste biomass obtained were 158.23 kg/m3, 18.25%, 65.99%, 4.78%, 10.98%, and 18.65 MJ/kg, respectively. Besides natural resin binder-used fuel briquette was characterized for its density, percent content of porosity weight index, percent content of shatter resistance, percent content of moisture content, percent content of volatile matter, percent content of ash content, percent content of fixed carbon content, and caloric values as 751.05 kg/m3, 13%, 40%, 4%, 12%, 1%, 30%, and 27.05 MJ/kg, respectively. In the same way, the starch binder-used fuel briquette was characterized for its density, percent content of porosity, weight index, percent content of shatter resistance, percent content of moisture content, percent content of volatile matter, percent content of ash, percent content of fixed carbon, and caloric values as 760 kg/m3, 10%, 42%, 4%, 11%, 2%, 31%, and 28.09 MJ/kg, respectively.
Conclusion: According to the results of the study, it can be concluded that all characterized properties using natural resin as a binder indicate almost comparative properties in comparison with the use of starch as a binder.
