ABSTRACT
This paper investigates the optimal compositions of coal, rice husk and palm oil sludge for energy derivation produced at various compression pressures in the range of 20 to 45Mpa. Their combustion characteristics were tested. Results show that a 5:3:1 ratio by weight of coal, rice husk at a compression pressure of 35 Mpa produces a minimum power loss.
