Abstract :

The primary goal was to replace PNG (Piped Natural Gas) in a boiler which led to the invention of Sugarcane-Peanut Bagasse made from agro-waste resulted from ice-cream manufacturing. The newly developed bagasse performs way better than the conventional PNG as far as environment is concerned. By using such bagasse as a combustible fuel leads to considerable cost saving as well as reduction in SO2 NOX emissions. Moreover, the ash remains after the combustion of bagasse can be used as a replacement of cement in concrete.
