Indonesian Journal of Fundamental and Applied Chemistry (IJFAC) is an international research journal and invites contributions of original research articles as well as review articles in several areas of chemistry. The journal aims to publish refereed, high-quality research papers with significant novelty and short communications in all branches of chemistry. Papers which describe novel theory and its application to practice are welcome, as are those which illustrate the transfer of techniques from other disciplines. IJFAC calls for papers that cover the following fields: Biochemistry Inorganic chemistry Physical chemistry Organic chemistry Analytical chemistry Applied Chemistry All papers are peer reviewed by at least two referees. Papers presented at conferences are peer reviewed and selected with the same standards as individually submitted papers. They therefore have the same archival value. Article should be submitted by the Online Submission Module at www.ijfac.unsri.ac.id or email to ijfac@unsri.ac.id

Abstract

The role of coal in providing national energy has already increased nowadays, and still taking an important subject. Government obligation to support added value is not really encourage industry player to applied technology energy that has been developed widenly in South Africa, China and others developing country. The scope of this research is technology energy for coal diversification, such as Coal Upgrading, Coal Gasification, Coal Liquefaction, Coal Water Mixture, and applied Coal Bed Methane Technology that extract gas methane from the pore of coal. The purpose of this research is to estimate coal resources, quality range and to select technology energy that can be potentially develop in PT. Bukit Asam (Persero), Tbk. Coal Resources and coal quality in each mining licences area becomes the basic strength for developing technology energy as part of SWOT Analysis. Based on the SWOT Analysis from 5 technology energy then the scope limited into 3 highest technology energy that is Coal Gasification, Coal Liquefaction and Coal Bed Methane as the most potential technology energy to develop in PT. Bukit Asam (Persero), Tbk.

Abstract

This research was aimed to investigate effect of oil spills on surface water from exploration in Dutch well.The investigation was carried out by in situ measurement of some parameters.Water sample was collected by grab sampling method and the analysis was conducted at Laboratory of Environment Badan Lingkungan Hidup dan Penelitian Pengembangan (BLHPP) Kabupaten Musi Banyuasin.The measurement result showed that some parameters did not fulfill the requirement of Standar Quality for Domestic Water Regulation according to Government Regulation No. 82 year 2001 i.e. COD and Oil&Fat content. The surface water and shallow ground water quality had some parameters that did not comply with standar quality according to regulation such as BOD, COD, DO, and oil-fat content.Calculation of pollution indeks (PI) showed that domestic water has 3.26 and was categorized into slightly polluted. At surface water in Angit River, the calculation of PI showed that upstream river was slightly polluted (3.23), while midstream was slightly polluted (3.22) and in downstream river was mildly polluted (9.60).

Abstract

Population activity which tends to centralized in certain area cause decrease in air quality due to exhaust gas from transportation vehicle. From 2011-2014, Palembang city transport growth 3-5% per year comprise of passenger transportation, buses, truck, motorcycle and special vehicle. The increase of vehicle in Palembang gave the city air pollution potential. Transportation is the main source of air pollution in big city with 70% contribution. Exhaust gas from transport activity consist of 60% CO and 15% incomplete combustion of hydrocarbon such as NOx and Sox. The aim of research is to analyzed air quality in Palembang city. Samples were taken and subject to analysis for SO2, NO2 and CO. Sample location were determined by using purposive sampling. Location was chosen by means of traffic density at least for one hour and took place at Charitas crossroads, Patal intersection, Mesjid Agung circle, Lemabang crossroad and Plaju intersection. Result of analysis showed SO2 level is at range 112-208 mg/Nm3/hour. NO2 level between 45-227 mg/Nm3/hour and CO at range 12.595-18.320 mg/Nm3/hour. All parameter of air quality obtained are below threshold value defined by government regulation (GR) on air quality No 41 year 1999.

Abstract

Kinetic and thermodynamic adsorption study of Co(II) ions from aqueous solutions by dried Spirulina sp. biomass was investigated in the batch system. The Spirulina sp. was isolated and cultured from algae swamp ecosystem in South Sumatera. The adsorption properties of Co(II) onto dried Spirulina sp. biomass was studied by the influence of contact time, initial metal ion concentration and reaction temperature. The experimental results were the rate of adsorption followed the second-order kinetic model with the rate of reaction k2 is 0.023 g mg-1 min-1  and the thermodynamic studies showed that the adsorption was well fitted to the Langmuir’s model, and the amount of Co(II) removed from solution increased with increasing Co(II) concentration with the higher adsorption energy was 10.38 kJ/mol at 30 °C.Keywords: Spirulina sp, Co(II), adsorption, algae swamp, South Sumatera

Abstract

The anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) as a new biological approach for nitrogen removal has been considered to be more cost-effective compared with the combination of nitrification and denitrification process. However, the anammox bioreactors are mostly explored at high temperature (>300C) in which temperature controlling system is fully required. This research was intended to develop and to apply anammox process for high nitrogen concentration removal at ambient temperature used for treating wastewater in tropical countries. An up-flow biofilm column reactor, which the upper part constructed with a porous polyester non-woven fabric material as a carrier to attach the anammox bacteria was operated without heating system. A maximum nitrogen removal rate (NRR) of 1.05 kg-N m3 d-1 was reached in the operation days of 178 with a Total Nitrogen (TN) removal efficiency of 74%. This showed the biofilm column anammox reactor was successfully applied to moderate high nitrogen removal from synthetic wastewater at moderately low temperature. Keywords: Anammox, biofilm column reactor, ambient temperature, nitrogen removal
