The discharge of reactive dyes into the environment has led to the toxicity problems especially to the aquatic organism. Therefore, there is a necessity for treatment of the reactive dyes from wastewater. In this work, Red 3BS reactive dye was separated using supported liquid membrane process. Commercial polypropylene (PP) membrane was used as a su...
Article
The potential of chitosan as filter media binder was investigated in this study. Chitosan solution with different concentrations were applied to the empty fruit bunches using two different deposition techniques, namely, spray method and addition method. In this study, a water absorption test was used to study the sorption behaviour of empty fruit b...
Article
The aim of this study is to investigate the feasibility of incorporating chitosan solution in fibrous filter media made from lignocellulosic biomass. The wet lay-up method was adopted for filter media fabrication. Diluted acetic acid was used as medium to dissolve the chitosan powder. Chitosan solution was applied to the fiber using two different d...
Article
Low Density Polyethylene was blended with various contents of tapioca starch (10%, 20%, 30%, and 40%) with addition of compatibilizer, i.e. PE-g-MA and cooking oil as plasticizer. The blends were prepared by co-rotating twin screw extrusion process and characterized by melt flow index (MFI) analysis and tensile test. Tapioca starch based polyethyle...
Article
The newly developed non-woven filter media are composed of randomly oriented fibrous fibers from empty fruit bunch fibers. The wet lay-up method was adopted for filter media fabrication. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of pre-treatment of lignocellulosic fibers on the mechanical properties of fibrous filter media. The study also...

Educating engineering students on sustainable development (SD) is a major concern in the 21st Century. Without the inculcation of SD, the students, as future innovators and problem solvers, may well be part of the problem, instead of providing the solution. Problem based learning is a possible approach to inculcate SD to have a deep impact on stude...
