A study was carried out to determine the physicochemical characteristics of sago hampas and sago wastewater from sago processing mill in Luwu Regency. The sago hampas was used is the residue of sago starch filtration of unrefined raw fiber. The sago wastewater was taken from processing mill are discharged into river. The points of sago wastewater sampling were undertaken in three different points, namely first wastewater (A1), the last wastewater (A2), and water that has been discharged into the river (A3). The sago hampas and sago wastewater processing mill was obtained by Spectrofotometric, Atomic Adsorption Spectroscopy, and analytical methods. The sago hampas content was found at C-Organic 33.01%; N-total 1.66%; C/N ratio 20; P2O5 0.04%, and minerals which are Calsium 27716 ppm, Magnesium 4247 ppm, and Sulfur 743 ppm. COD concentration sago from wastewater was found at A3 point which is 177.3985 mg/l; N-total 0.1%; Phospor 0.01 ppm; Kalium 10.46 ppm; Magnesium 5.84 ppm; and Calsium 0.62 ppm. The high content of organic materials and minerals in sago hampas and sago wastewater needs to be processed before discharging it into the river. The results of this study indicate that sago waste can be used as a feedstock biogas production.
Key words: sago hampas / sago wastewater / sago processing mill / physicochemical characteristics
