Sugarcane or Saccharum officinarum L. is a perennial grass that comprised of stalks, leaves and root system where stalk contains the juice that commonly used to make sugar. Sugarcane residues, particularly sugarcane bagasse (SCB) and leaves (SL) have been explored for both biotechnological and non-biotechnological applications. Sugarcane bagasse is an agricultural waste that is potentially used as natural silica resources. Natural silica claimed to be safe in handling, cheap and can be generated from a cheap resource. From this point of view, this project an apply sugarcane bagasse as desalination medium for artificial seawater. Moreover, this project involves the preparation of sugarcane bagasse as a raw material for desalination of artificial seawater by drying and pulverization in presence of ion exchange resins. Subsequently, routine analysis of salinity of seawater around reclamation area in Melaka Island is performed in order to get the information about the salinity of seawater. Based on the natural salinity of seawater, various concentration of artificial seawater will be prepared. Desalination of this artificial seawater will be performed by sugarcane bagasse supported by ion exchange resins. The desalination was carried out by fabricated column. This project provide information about capacity of sugarcane bagasse and ion exchange resins to remove the salinity of artificial seawater involve the optimum flow rate of water influence in the column and regeneration of the desalination.
