Abstract

The high number of births in Indonesia causes the waste of disposable baby diapers to be higher. Some people have used disposable baby diaper waste as a more valuable item, but this is still not enough to overcome the problems caused by disposable baby diaper waste. This study aims to increase the value of disposable baby diaper waste by utilizing it as a raw material for fiberboard. Experiments were carried out to produce fiberboard made from disposable baby diaper waste combined with citric acid as an adhesive in various compositions and pressing times. The fiberboard is tested on several parameters based on the National Standardization Agency of Indonesia standard requirements. From the results of the fiberboard testing, all treatments met the National Standardization Agency of Indonesia's legal requirements. The best treatment chosen was fiberboard with a compressed time of 15 min, and the composition of raw materials and adhesives was 10:2.
