Abstract: The utilization of biomass in Coal Steam Power Plants (PLTU) in the form of biomass co-firing is targeted to reach new and renewable energy (NRE) of around 23% by 2025, therefore co-firing is needed by approaching a portion of 10-20% or requires biomass of around 8 million tons-14 million tons per year. The main factors that affect heat transfer in boilers can occur due to the low melting point of biomass and the relatively high alkali content so that it becomes a problem of slagging, fouling and corrosion. One of the ways used to overcome this is by adding additives to the fuel mixture through biomass co-firing methods and a sustainable LCA approach. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is an approach used to calculate the economic, social and environmental impact on a product, so in the selection of biomass co-firing fuel using materials that can cause better emissions. The scope of LCA calculation is on the preparation of raw materials (gate to gate), which includes fuel preparation activities from the land, seeding, planting, fertilizing, maintaining and permanence biomass fuel. Then it is planned until implementation in the industry (cradle to gate), in accordance with the roadmap of the future program that is more structured and advanced.
