Abstract

The utilization of industrial and agricultural waste and byproduct and natural fibers has been attracted many researchers interest because of its economic benefits and tackling environment issue both. In this study, the feasibility of using rice husk and its treated form with alkali solution as a desiccant material has been investigated. The bare RH and treated RH have been characterized using FTIR, XRD, DSC, TGA, and SEM. The ability of water absorbance for the prepared samples has also been considered that water absorption test was carried out. The results revealed higher water absorbance of alkali treated RH compared to the bare RH. Currently, the work is focused on determining superior treatment conditions of treating RH involving more characterization methods.
