Abstract

Single use plastic is one of the biggest problem in the world right now, it is the main source of non-degradable material in the world. The usage of plastic and plastic derivatives in Indonesia most times cannot be avoided as long as no alternatives products are available. Only a small portion of the plastic is recycled, the rest end up in the land and in the ocean. Plastic need hundreds of year to decompose and some even can’t decompose like expanded polystyrene. A new machine is in need for in producing an alternative product for plastic. This machine is designed, develop and fabricated in Indonesia. PID control system is used to control both upper and lower die. Set points for both die can be set individually. The temperature of upper and lower die varies by different leaves and how many layer of leaves. The leaf plates made by the machine then tested along with plastic plates, expanded polystyrene plates and plastic laminated paper plates. The result of this test will conclude how good the leaf plates as an alternative for other disposable plates. Teak leaf plate molding machine is built and performing quite well. The temperature from upper and lower die can be controlled precisely. The plates that produce by the machine in tensile strength test also perform quite well. Teak leaf plates tensile break average at 29.3 N, slightly lower than plastic one and higher than expanded polystyrene one.
