Abstract

The scientific name of oil palm is Elaeis guineensis. OPT biomass are widely
used in the wood-based industry such as pulp and paper and wood plastic. Thus
biomass can turn into value added material and as alternative raw materials.
This study concentrate on the determination of fiber morphology according to its
fiber length, fiber diameter, lumen diameter and cell wall thickness depended on
different height portion and distance from outer layer and inner layer. In this
study, the average result for the fiber length is 2.03IJm, fiber diameter is
42.12IJm, lumen diameter is 25.651Jm and cell wall thickness is 25.78IJm. for the
runkel ratio and felting power, the highest recorded for both of them are 4.44
and 0.048 percent. According to the runkel ratio and felting power result, the
fiber is not suitable for paper making.
