  This study presents the coating uniformity using modified bio-polymer in a tangential fluidized bed coater via Taguchi’s method. The study focused on the implementation of coating uniformity using modified bio-polymer toward granular urea. In this study, efficiency of mass coating per granular urea was used as indicator for coating uniformity. A series of coating experiments were carried out to determine the effect of inlet air temperature, disc rotation speed and spraying rate to the efficiency of mass coating per granular urea. An orthogonal array, the signal-to-noise ratio and analysis of variance (ANOVA) were used. Besides achieving optimal parameters for the efficiency of mass coating per granular urea, the findings explain parameters that affect the results. The confirmation run had carried out to verify the conclusion from the variance analysis.

  Alkali-Activated Material (AAM) is a compound which undergo alkali silicate activation and formed into an aluminosilicate compound. In this research, AAM was proposed as the new Controlled Release Fertilizer (CRF) coating material as it exhibits specific properties to improve CRF coating, eco-friendly and manufactured through sustainable production process. Thus, the droplet impact behaviour of the modified AAM solution was studied to determine the wettability of the solution on the urea surface by identifying the surface tension and contact angle. Besides that, the maximum spreading factor of the modified AAM droplet was analyzed to observe the spreading behaviour of the droplet between within time intervals. The AAM solution was formulated by using 3:1 weight ratio of fly ash based powder and 10 M sodium hydroxide solution. Modified AAM solution was formed by adding up 1-4 wt.% nanoclay into the solution as a filler to improve the AAM microstructure. The droplet impact experiment of the modified AAM solution was observed by using high speed camera. In the experiment, the droplet impact behaviour of the AAM solution was analyzed by varying the wt.% nanoclay added. From the experiment, the AAM solution with 0 wt.% nanoclay was identified to have the highest wettability as indicated by its lowest surface tension and smallest contact angle but it has the lowest maximum spreading factor. On the other hand, the AAM solution with 4 wt.% nanoclay was found to have the lowest wettability as indicated by its highest surface tension and largest contact angle but it provides the largest maximum spreading factor as low penetration and low dissolution of AAM solution occurs at this amount.
