Abstract : The use of sugarcane bagasse for providing avaibility of raw material have been attracting attention. The benefits using natural fibre such as sugarcane bagasse are eco-friendly, low cost considerations because widespread avaibility, high stiffness, better thermal stability, and biodegradability. Sugarcane bagasse and white glue (polyvinyl acetate, PVAc) have been shown to possess the ability of being applied as raw material for manufacturing of green composite panel at 10mm thickness (fixed variable) by three mesh sizes (20,30 dan 40) with ratio of the composition 95:5, 90:10 and 85:15%. The specimen have been emphasized at 3:2 and 2:1. This research was conducted to investigate possibility of manufacturing green composite panel that its characteristic resistance to the thermal conductivity. This green composite speciments were tested for thermal conductivity test according to ASTM E- 1225. The results revealed that optimum design for green composite panel obtained that emphasis at 2:1, filtered by mesh size 20, ratio composition sugarcane bagasse 85% and PVAc 15. The test result shown that panel has thermal conductivity resistance value (R) 17,089 °C/W. Thus, it can be concluded that green composite panel can successfully be manufactured from sugarcane bagasse and white glue (PVAc)as the main source of raw materials.
