Bio-pellet is an alternative energy that can substituted low grade coal from biomass sources. Biomass waste from palm plantation and palm industry are challenging as bio-pellet based material. Palm plantation in Indonesia has reached 8.9 million hectare in 2011 that widely spread in all of locations. The aim of this research is to provide prospect information of bio-pellet from palm plantation and industrial waste. Proximate analysis resulted the equality between bio-pellet from oil palm waste with coal or briquette. Moreover, bio-pellet from biomass source gives environmental advantages than coal. Bio-pellet is a prospective and competitive as an alternative energy to substituted coal and these derivatives. © 2014 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
