Abstract

The coffee industry in Sidoarjo produces coffee waste as coffee ground, coffee husk, and coffee return with the solid waste generation of about 5044.3 Tons/year. The coffee waste characters resemble organic waste, so it has potential as a composted raw material. This study aims to determine the selected variation raw material composition from the coffee industry based on Indonesian National Standard (SNI) Number 10-7030-2004 and the recycle potency of the coffee industry solid waste using composting technology. The research variables are the modified composting method (open windrow composting and Bacary Italian) and the co-composting method. The result of this research for all treatments showed that the concentration range of pH value 6.92-9.54, moisture 34.78-66.60%, C-organic 17.75-33.82%, N 1.45-2.93%, C/N ratio 10-13, P2O5 0.13-0.31%, and K2O 0.89-2.89%. The selected variation raw material composition of bio compost based on the compliance to SNI 10-7030-2004, which is 1.5 kg coffee ground + 1.35 coffee return + 0.15 kg coffee husk + 3 mL EM4 (K10). Based on K10 as the selected variation raw material composition of bio compost, the coffee industry solid waste recyclable is coffee ground 0.64%, coffee husk 0.20% and returned coffee 100%.
