Development of Small-Scale Charcoal Briquettes and Natural Dyes Production Units to Implement Zero-Waste System through Utilizing Mangrove Forests
Through the participation of local communities in the preservation of mangrove forest ecosystems, an attempt is being made to prevent further damage to the mangrove environment and recover from any damage already caused. The mangrove forests along the shore of Kampung Laut, most notably those located in the Ujung Alang Village, are kept in pristine form because of the numerous and varied types of mangrove plantation activities that are carried out there. The local people are currently utilizing mangrove plants as a source of food (certain parts of the plant) and building materials (the stems). On the other hand, its use as a natural dye source is not yet common enough to be considered a significant industry. So, the mangrove forest ecosystem can be protected through the Sustainable Utilization of Mangrove Forests for the Production of Natural Dyes with a Zero Waste System, which includes: (1) the preparation and completion of a natural dye production unit based on the right technology for Kampung Laut village; (2) the preparation and completion of the production unit to produce charcoal briquettes and liquid smoke from mangrove waste as a new and innovative use for mangrove waste; and (3) the preparation and completion of the production unit to produce naturally.
