Abstract

The effect of natural rubber (NR) latex on the Young's modulus of carbon pellets made from oil palm empty fruit bunches (EFB) is studied. Compared with pellets without NR latex, the Young's modulus of the sample containing NR latex becomes smaller by about 35% after carbonization. This can be interpreted as due to the rearrangement of the carbon atoms from the NR latex, which occurred in such a way that it cannot enhance the bonding between the carbon atoms from the EFB particles. It is possible that the NR latex was not fluid enough to occupy the spaces or that it was too fluid and easily moved downward due to gravity. As a result, the carbon pellets produced were more porous than those produced without using NR latex.
