Abstract

The effect of palm oil fiber-TiO2 ratio in the composite on the reduction of benzene, toluene, xylene and formaldehyde in the air is studied. The ratio was set at 1:0, 1:9 and 5:5. The combination of adsorption process by palm oil fiber and photooxidation of volatile organic compounds by titanium dioxide was revealed. The composite were prepared by using mechanical milling technique. The performance of the composite was characterized in terms of percentage of recovery of benzene, toluene and xylene (BTX) using GC/FID and formaldehyde concentration reduction using formaldehyde meter. The results of recovery of the BTX by palm oil fiber/titanium dioxide composite were more than 90%. The palm oil fiber/titanium dioxide composite has successfully reduced the concentration of formaldehyde by up to 66.7%. Therefore, the palm oil mesocarp fiber/titanium dioxide composite produced is able to reduce the concentration of volatile organic compounds.
