This study aims to increase the calorific value of woody cutting waste briquette by adding activated carbon. The previous experiments showed that the highest calorific value of woody cutting waste briquette reached only 3 630 kCal kg–1. In this research, activated carbon was made of Palmyra palm fiber using H3PO4 as an activator solvent. There are four different proportion of activated carbon used in the experiment, for example, 5 %, 10 %, 15 %, and 20 % with 10 % tapioca flour binder. The woody cutting waste were carbonized and sieved into 50 mesh to 100 mesh. The briquette performance was tested using proximate analysis, bomb calorimeter, and combustion analysis. The addition of activated carbon in briquette could increase the calorific value from 3 630 kCal kg–1 to around 4 500 kCal kg–1.
Key words: activated carbon / briquette / calorific value / palmyra palm fiber / reactive / woody waste
