Abstract:

Rice is staple food of more than half world. Therefore, rice processing and associated business are growing vigorously. Rice husk obtain from rice milling process as by product. It is attracting as value added material for domestic and industrial processing such as preparing valuable silicon based materials, cement, as source of pet food fibre and as source of dietary fibre, preparation of activated carbon, refractory industry, polymer, rubber, preparing sorbent for waste water treatments, in bio ethanol production, to control of insect pests in stored food stuffs, ceramic industry and biosynthesis of silica nano-particles. Extensive research has been done to utilize important properties of rice husk and its ash for industrial applications. Summarising all these data could be helpful for smooth future research on rice husk and rice husk ash.


Keywords: Rice husk, Rice husk ash, Silica, Refractory industry, Sorbent.
