The catalytic performance of hierarchically porous ZSM-5 (Zeolite Secony Mobile-5) prepared using silica extracted from bagasse ash in the transesterification of coconut oil into biodiesel has been carried out. The silica was extracted from bagasse ash using NaOH solution, and subsequently crystallized using the Solid State Conversion (SSC) method to produce pore hierarchical ZSM-5. The catalytic activity of the zeolite was evaluated through a series of transesterification reactions at varied experimental conditions including reaction time, the ratio of methanol to oil, and the amount of catalyst. The results show that bagasse ash silica is amorphous and can crystallize to produce a hierarchical pore ZSM-5 at 170 ° C for 48 hours. Transesterfication experiments demonstrated that the zeolite is able to convert coconut oil with the yield of 88% with a reaction time of 2 hours, 1: 9 oil to methanol ratio and 9% catalyst amount. This achievement suggests that sugarcane pulp has the potential as a source of silica for development of advanced material, to support development of energy sources in the future.
