Abstract:

Every year millions of tones of agriculture waste are generated which are either destroyed or burnt inefficiently in loose form causing air pollution. Briquetting technology is one of the renewable sources of energy that was devised to address problems regarding global warming. In India biomass is the most dominant source of energy and is used significantly in the domestic sector notably charcoal and wood fuel. Despite huge amount of agricultural waste generation in the rural areas, the rural folks use charcoal and wood fuel, which leads to deforestation. Therefore to reduce the use of conventional fuels, use of biomass as a fuel can be placed as a substitute. Biomass can be used in the form of briquettes to replace the conventional fuels to some extent. Comparison of different biomass ratio for the briquette production was carried out. In intial sample, rice straw and cow dung in proportion of produced briquettes, in second sample rice husk, rice straw and cow dung and in third samaple saw dust, rice straw and cow dung in proportionate were taken to produce briquette by using hand operated Briquetting machine and compared its proximate and ultimate analysis of Briquettes.
