Abstract

The goal of this paper was to review the uses of oil palm trunk (OPT) as a source of lignocellulosic materials (LM), and to discuss its future prospects. The present review focuses on three points; first, large quantity of OPT; second, many studies reported the commercial use of OPT and third, many studies reported the conversion methods of OPT into LM sources. Most of the studies revealed that OPT can be transformed readily into biomaterials for value-added products The LM from OPT have many potential industrial applications.

Keywords: Oil palm trunks; lignocellulosic materials; industrial application.
