Ramadoni Syahputra, Indah Soesanti

This paper proposes the implementation of the electric stove for green batik industry. Batik is the process of drawing a picture on a piece of cloth using wax as a color barrier. Usually, the stove is an essential tool for heating the wax until it melts and used to draw a picture with a specific pattern on the white cloth. These stoves furthermore produce smoke which spreads to working sites and contains CO, CO2, NO2, and SO2. Since kerosene is often rare, and prices tend to be more expensive, the electric stove was used in the production. In this research implementation, a technical and economic analysis was carried out. The technical assessment was conducted by comparing the quality of the kerosene and electric batik stove while the economic aspect examined the overall production costs. The results of the technical analysis showed that the quality of batik candles melted using an electric stove was effective process with stable temperature. The economic analysis show that the production costs using an electric stove are much lower.
