Abstract:

Straw burning after harvesting is a current environmental issue causing loss of nutrient to soil and many hazardous effects to the environment. To overcome the problem of straw burning is Bio-CNG generation from agro-waste. Converting stubble into energy is an innovative way to address the matter as it helps to reduce the greenhouse effect and fight against the threats of global warming. The Bio-CNG is an ideal fuel for automobiles and its low emission levels also make it a more environment-friendly fuel than biogas and other fuels. Bio-CNG is much cheaper than other competitive fuels. Bio-CNG enhances the rural economy by imparting development in the available resources and employment generation.
