Technology Reports of Kansai University (ISSN: 04532198) is a monthly peer-reviewed and open-access international Journal. It was first built in 1959 and officially in 1975 till now by kansai university, japan. The journal covers all sort of engineering topic, mathematics and physics. Technology Reports of Kansai University (TRKU) was closed access journal until 2017. After that TRKU became open access journal. TRKU is a scopus indexed journal and directly run by faculty of engineering, kansai university.

Aloe vera is considered as member of the Liliaceae family and Aloe Chinensis Baker is one of the species that is widely cultivated in Pontianak, Indonesia. The quality parameters of Aloe vera juice include pH, refractive index, vitamin C and density. The objectives of this study to investigate the influence of Sodium benzoate-Citric acid on the quality of Aloe vera gel juice, including pH, density, refractive index and vitamin C, as well to determine the storage time by using the Arrhenius approach. This study used 3 L of Aloe vera gel juice added with 1.8 g of Sodium benzoate and 6 g of Citric acid, stirred until homogenous then divided into bottles of 200 mL each for analyzing pH, refractive index, density, and vitamin C contents at the storage temperature of 30oC, 40oC and 50oC with the storage time of 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 70 days. The determination of Aloe vera gel juice storage time was calculated using linear regression equation of the parameter with the lowest amount of activation energy. The obtained equation to determine the storage time was Ln k = -1233.1(1/T) – 0.8438 with the total activation energy of vitamin C is 2450.1697 cal/mol
Energy is an important part of basic needs. All living things on the earth need energy to survive. However, energy crisis and environmental damage due to pollution are becoming problems. That is the reason why the need for renewable energy is inevitable. There are many sources of renewable energy like wind energy and hydropower. Among several forms of renewable energy, energy from thermoelectricity is one of promising candidates because it does not generate noise and harmful gases. The thermoelectric materials convert waste heat into electricity based on Seebeck effect. This article describes a simple explanation about the introduction, theory and principle of thermoelectric devices. Several important parameters such as a figure of merit (ZT), thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, Seebeck coefficient are related each other. This article also gives a brief calculation of several parameters of thermoelectric material and the results are shown in graphs so it will give better intuition for understanding thermoelectricity
