Pre-Design Factory “Lignocellulose Bagasse Fractionation of Sugarcane by Steam Explosion Method”
Indonesia is the country with the 4th largest population in the world reaching 270 million people. Of course, with this high population, the need for the industrial sector is also very large. One of the important industries in Indonesia is the pulp industry. Pulp is the result of separating fibers from fibrous raw materials. Pulp can be made from wood, non-wood and waste paper. Pulp is a white fiber material obtained through the process of removing lignin from biomass (delignification). Pulp is used as a raw material for paper making and can also be converted into cellulose derivative compounds such as cellulose acetate. Removal of lignin from biomass can be carried out by various processes, namely mechanical, semichemical and chemical.
In Indonesia, the number of pulp and paper industries reaches 62 companies, with an industrial capacity of 7.93 million tons of pulp/year. As of September 2016, the pulp and paper industry has contributed USD 3.79 billion of foreign exchange and is ranked seventh as the largest foreign exchange earner from the non-oil and gas sector. The pulp and paper industry is one of the industries that plays an important role in the Indonesian economy. Based on FAO data (2013), Indonesia maintains its 6th position as a world pulp exporter with total pulp exports in 2002 of 2.25 million tons and in 2011 of 2.93 million tons (Unied, 2018).
This sugarcane bagasse lignocellulosic biomass fractionation plant is planned to be established in East Java, precisely in the Banyuwangi area. The determination of the location of the factory is primarily oriented to the source of raw materials, namely sugarcane bagasse and the market, namely paper factories in the area around East Java. Other factors include the availability of land in Banyuwangi Regency, along with the existing utilities in the area.
This factory is planned to operate in batches 24 hours for 330 days/year with a production capacity of 10,000 tons of raw materials/year. The products produced by this factory are cellulose pulp and hemicellulose hydrolyzate.
Based on economic analysis, the rate of return on capital (IRR) of this factory is 48.2% at a bank interest rate of 7.95%, with an inflation rate of 1.75% per year. Meanwhile, the payback period (POT) is 2.33 years and the break-even point (BEP) is 18.2% using a linear method. The factory life is 10 years and the construction period is 2 years. To produce cellulose pulp of 3656 tons/year, a total production cost (TPC) of Rp. 74.908.040.204.00 with a total investment cost (TCI) of Rp. 75,336,363,693.00. By looking at the economic and technical analysis assessment aspects, the sugarcane bagasse lignocellulosic biomass fractionation plant is feasible to establish.
