Abstract

The results of the first trials show that the TSS content in Batik liquid waste in Pati is quite high at 540.75 mg/L. The study aims to determine the effect of making adsorbents from cassava peel waste which is influenced by the activation of adsorbents on TSS absorption in batik liquid waste. This research method includes the steps of making activated carbon from cassava peel waste, the process of activation of chemical carbon, and the adsorption test of batik liquid waste. Varied variables are for HCl, NaOH and without activators. The results showed a decrease in TSS for activator HCl 282.135 mg/L, NaOH activator 352.375 mg/L and without activator 386.245 mg/L. Based on research, the adsorbent from cassava skin is good for reducing TSS in batik liquid waste. Carbon activation with activator HCl is the most effective in absorbing TSS content in Batik liquid waste
