ABSTRACT
Manar, R.M.C; Retiza, J.M.D; Teofilo A.T.A; 2011. The feasibility study of Pineapple (Ananas Comosus, Linn) Peelings as main ingredient in making Particle Board. Science and Technology Department, Kidapawan City National High School.

The study was entitled “Feasibility Study of Pineapple (Ananas Comosus, Linn) Peelings as main ingredient in making Particle Board”. The study aimed to produce particle board out of pineapple peelings and answer the following questions: 1) Does the quality of the produced particle board out of pineapple peelings comparable to the commercial product when analyzed by strength, appearance, and texture? 2) Is there a significant difference between the produced pineapple peelings and the commercial particle board when analyzed by strength, appearance, and texture? 3) Is there a significant difference in the cost of the product to the commercial board when analyzed by strength, appearance, and texture? 4) Is there a significant relationship between the commercial particle board and the produced particle board when analyzed by strength, appearance, and texture? The study was laid out using Simple Experimental Design in four (4) treatments and replicated three (3) times to produced particle board from Pineapple Peelings. Frequency weighted mean and description was used to evaluate texture, strength, and appearance by the thirty (30) randomly selected respondents.

The study was done following the procedure set by the researchers. Results of the analysis revealed that the most preferred treatment by the respondents in texture of strength is Treatment 3, while Treatment 4, which is the commercial product was the most preferred treatment of the respondents in texture and appearance.
