I. Title

“Marang (Artocarpus odoratissimus) peelings as Charcoal briquette”

II. Measurable variables

Number of briquettes

III. Data gathering procedures

A. Preparation of Marang peels

The marang peels will be collected and it will be sun dried and half burned.

Don’t allow them to burn completely. If the marang peels already half burned, It will

be crashed.

B. Preparation of the mixture

Two (2) cups of flour will be mixed with a cold water and boil it with a

medium heat to 5-10 minutes. Add the mixture to the crashed marang peels. You will

mold the crashed marang peels with a cylinder shape. Wait 2 minutes until it dries.

IV. Review of Related Literature

Charcoal briquette is a compressed block of coal dust or

other combustible biomass material such as charcoal, sawdust, wood


chips, peat, or paper used for fuel and kindling to start a fire. The term

comes from the French language and is related to brick.

Charcoal is a desirable fuel because it produces a hot, long-lasting, virtually

smokeless fire. Combined with other materials and formed into uniform chunks

called briquette, it js popularly used for outdoor cooking in America. Basic

charcoal is produced by burning a carbon rich material such as wood in a low

oxygen atmosphere. This process drives off the moisture and volatile gases that

were present in the original fuel. The resulting charred material not only burns

longer and more steadily than whole wood, but it is much lighter (one-fifth to

one-third of its original weight).

The Marang (Artocarpus odoratissimus), also called terap,marang, johey

oak, green pedalai, madang,tarap, or timadang, is a tree in

the mulberryand fig family Moraceae. It is native toBorneo, Palawan,

and Mindanao Island, and is closely related to the jackfruit, cempedak, and

breadfruit trees which all belong to the same genus, Artocarpus.

Marang has a distinct sweet odor and like durian.

Bioethanol fuel is mainly produced by the sugar fermentation process,

although it can also be manufactured by the chemical process of reacting ethylene

with steam. The main sources of sugar required to produce ethanol come from

fuel or energy crops. Ethanol burns to produce carbon dioxide and water. Marang

fruit is a very sweet and juicy. The peelings contain bio-ethanol that is useful

component for making a biofuel because of this, the researcher decided to test the
effectiveness of marang (Artocarpus odoratissimus) peeling as an alternative

source of biofuel.
