It is also prompted to wisely convert waste into added value. One of them is to transform waste cooking oil into bioplasticizer by epoxidation with peroxyacetic acid and acid catalysts. Waste cooking oil is potential material as bioplasticizer for starch-based biocomposite due to highly unsaturated triglyceride. This paper was aimed to investigate performance of epoxidized waste cooking oil as bio plasticizer of starch-based biocomposite reinforced microfibrillated cellulose of bamboo based on tensile strength, elongation at break, and spectra peaks of FTIR. All of bamboo MFC was prepared through cellulose isolation by chemical treatments and microfibrillated cellulose conversion by assistance of ultrasonic homogenizer.
