Abstract

Oil palm frond and empty fruit bunch (EFB), which were abundant biomass resources found in Indonesia, were hydrothermally-treated using two different types of reactor, e.g. batch and semi-flow reactor. The objective of this research was to make a comparison of product resulted from both types of treatment. Based on the experimental results, it was found that liquefaction of biomass material occurred more effectively in semi-flow reactor. Semi-flow reactor facilitated a higher recovery of several sugar compounds such as xylooligosaccharides and arabinose. On the hand, residual solids from batch treatment had higher theoretical calorific values (18.81 and 18.00 MJ/kg) than those from semi-flow (15.40 and 17.41 MJ/kg, for frond and EFB respectively).
