Renewable energy is collected through sustainable natural processes. One of the examples of renewable energy is a biofuel. A biofuel is produced from organic materials, such as plants with high sugar content. Sago starch extracted from sago pith contains starch and fiber that can be converted into glucose by hydrolysis. Sago starch and fiber can be processed into bioethanol as the main ingredient of renewable energy source. In this study, bioethanol production from sago waste fermented by

The highest bioethanol content was obtained from the BRT treatment where wet solid sago waste was fermented by baker's yeast (45.7021%), while the lowest was found in the BTP treatment (0.9504%). Two or more than two peaks were shown by the ART, ATP, BTP, and KTP treatments, whereas only one peak was indicated by the BRT and KRT treatments suggesting that there was only one compound that can be identified as ethanol.
