Journal Homepage Image

Jurnal Bahan Alam Terbaurkan is a scientific journal which is focusing on the research, development and applications in biomass conversion processes (thermo-chemical conversion; physicochemical conversion and bio-chemical conversion) and equipment to produce fuels, power, heat, and value-added chemicals from biomass. Since 2012, JBAT published 2 issues per year i.e. in June and December. In Period of 2012 to 2016 we published JBAT in Indonesian and English language. However, since June 2016 JBAT only published articles in English language and continue till now. In 2016, JBAT has been accredited by Directorate General of Research Empowering and Developments, Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education through SK 36b/E/KPT/2016 for the period of 2016-2021. JBAT has a printed and online standard serial number which is p-ISSN 2303-0623 (printed version) and e-ISSN 2407-2370 (electronic version). As an accredited journal, JBAT is conducting journal management by online included submission, review process and publication. Jurnal Bahan Alam Terbaurkan is published by Chemical Engineering Department, Universitas Negeri Semarang and has collaboration with APTEKIM (Asosiasi Pendidikan Tinggi Teknik Kimia Indonesia), EIC (Engineering International Conference) and SNTK (Seminar Nasional Teknik Kimia) UNNES.

Focus and Scope

This journal presents articles and information on research, development and applications in biomass conversion processes (thermo-chemical conversion; physico-chemical conversion and bio-chemical conversion) and equipment to produce fuels, power, heat, and value-added chemicals from biomass. A biorefinery takes advantage of the various components in biomass and their intermediates therefore maximizing the value derived from the biomass feedstock. A biorefinery could, for example, produce one or several low-volume, but high-value, chemical or nutraceutical products and a low-value, but high-volume liquid transportation fuel such as biodiesel or bioethanol (see also alcohol fuel). The high-value products increase profitability, the high-volume fuel helps meet energy needs, and the power production helps to lower energy costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from traditional power plant facilities. Future biorefineries may play a major role in producing chemicals and materials that are traditionally produced from petroleum.

  1. Conversion of biomass into heat, electricity and biohydrogen
  2. Bioenergy systems and plant engineering
  3. Biocatalyst development, gasification and pyrolysis plants
  4. Commodity Chemicals
