Tengkawang is one of the commodities of non-timber forest products which has been a life of support for people around the forest. Seeds produced by Tengkawang trees are one of the export commodities. However, unfortunately, the process of exporting Tengkawang seeds abroad often requires a long time to reduce the quality of the Tengkawang seeds. Processing of Tengkawang seeds into oil is asolution to the decline in quality of Tengkawang seeds. Like standard crude vegetable oil, Tengkawang oil also contains impurities. Therefore, a purification process to remove these impurities is needed. This research was conducted to produce purified Tengkawang fat optimally. Purification stagesinclude degumming, neutralization and bleaching. This research will focus on the simulation of purified Tengkawang fat production. In this case, the simulation is carried out as an estimator of the feasibility value roughly whether a fat purification plant can be realized or not.
