Abstract

ABSTRACT
Energy demand increase follow to population growth factors, high exploration costs, rising world oil prices and
the difficulty of finding sources of oil reserves. These factors cause the governments of several countries to immediately
produce alternative energy that is renewable and environmentally friendly. Wood pellets are an alternative energy
source. The availability of raw materials is very easy to obtain. Raw materials for wood pellets from the exploitation
waste such as logging residues, branches and twigs, wood industry waste such as scraps, sawdust and bark,
agricultural waste such as straw and husks. Waste that is developed into a product will produce a higher economic
value. Making pellets from wood waste is an alternative energy material for meeting people's energy needs. The
opportunity to develop wood pellets as fuel is wide open because of the vast potential of forests in Indonesia and the
large amount of waste from forest products, both from timber industry waste and exploitation waste. Equipment, raw
materials and the process of making pellets in a simple manner need to be socialized to the public so that they can be
applied especially for the utilization of potential waste that can be used as raw material for making pellets.
